4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Perfectly balanced stout with a very smooth edge compared to uk stouts. Very enjoyable and well balanced aroma of chocolate malt.

330ml Bottle - Black in colour. Liquorice, roasted malt and some soapy hops feature prominently in the both the the aroma and taste. Rather enjoyable but I can imagine the soapiness becoming a bit too much after a couple of bottles.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ ABC Beers. Poured into a Hennessy cognac glass. No bottling date printed. Dark chestnut brown, light dark red copper hue, soy chocolate milk head, fizzing away soy milk bubbles. Nose is roasty, light herbal coffee, soy milk chocolate, touch chicory coffee, mellow roast. Taste is bitter herbal coffee, leaves, wild herbs, rooibos, grainy, lots of chicory coffee, cheap chalky chocolate, soy chocolate milk, hazelnut,… Light bodied & fizzy. It is a very light, fizzy almost UK style stout focused on herbal, rooisbos & liquorish type notes with roast. A sweetness that reminds me a bit of almond milk. Not really to my preferences but interesting and enjoyable all the same. I really like these guys, hopefully I will wind up at their brewpub one day & I will see their new releases available in Belgium so that I can tick them & keep up :) after all we aren’t too far removed, hell this beer was contract brewed in Belgium.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 22/09/20, at Viisi Penniä, 20150220) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had creaminess, burnt malts and dark chocolate. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, liquorice, sweetness, earth and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A well done stout despite the a little bit excessive burtness.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It’s the coffee and the malty sweetness that dominate the taste of this beer. Hops are well present, not too much though. The whole is a bit watery and the body is too light for the style.
