Aroma: The smell is from burnt toast, fresh ground dark coffee.
Appearance: The beer is black with hints of brown, the head is beige, small, leaving no lacing.
Taste: The taste is somewhat sweetish, brown sugar, dark fruits, dark bread, but with a good bitterness, coffee and cocoa beans.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, soft, medium body, a dry finish.
Overall: A very pleasant stout, I dare say.

Draft at På Besök.
Looks just like a stout should. Almost black, a thick creamy white head.
Aroma is roasted, with some chocolate, coffee and slight sourness.
Taste follows aroma well.
Medium bodied, quite high carbonation.
This is a solid stout, it does not try to be something it’s not.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours almost pitch black, with a vague brownish note, brown head.
Toasted malts dominate the nose, asphalt, chocolate, coffee beans, yeast.
Dry, medium body, slightly acidic (appropriate) medium bitterness, balanced CO2.
The taste is also lots of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, faintly smoke and/or yeasty.
Good rendition of the style. (2011-07-27)
