3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Oggi’s, Liberty Station Point Loma. Old fashioned Guinness aroma. Opaque brown/black color with a tan head that flattened. Smooth carbonation, medium bodied. Strong dark burnt malt flavor, but it’s not quite harsh. Underlaid with chocolate. Smooth. The finish is burnt and dry, and there seems to be a bit of bitter. Coffee? Went right by me. Good drink.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
A: The beer pours just about black with a finger of tan colored head.
S: Something is obviously amiss right away. Green apple, booze, vinegar, and nail polish remover. There is some roasted malt aroma in there too. Maybe a bit of char and coffee.
T: This is a beer that hurts to drink. An enormous amount of nail polish remover and extremely acidic. It burns the throat and tongue a bit. Some harsh roasted malt and maybe coffee, but it’s sort of hard to tell/care.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: Simply painful and atrocious.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from ølbutikken.
Pitch dark, smooth lacing light brown to brown head.
aroma of coffee, roasted malts, brown cakes with chocolate coating, notes of something somewhat harder roasted than roasted malts, but also sweet milky or sugary notes. In total pretty compelx aroma, slightly hoppier and drier than your average stout. Arome is pretty close to guiness foreign extra as i remember it. Flavor is roasted stuff, cofee, chocolate, nice almost spicy dryness from hops, mixed with notes of hard roasted malts. Straight foreign stout, yet still complex, full bodied and very well tasting. Great beer.
