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.

On-tap at Carmel Country Road. Black with some mocha head, lots of lace. Bitter, high carbonation. Dinkable, but this seemed like a Guiness clone. Roasted body, with coffee, very dry. Coffee grounds. Malts get it done, but just an average beer and below average stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, lightly tanned head. Decent retention. The aroma is a medley of chocolate, vanilla, coffee and smoke. Medium to full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Tons of rich, burnt espresso beans and dark chocolate with only a trace of cardboard-like oxidation. Metallic, burnt, bitter finish. Nice, solid stout!
