3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle poured into a Snifter glass. Appearance is brownish black with a small creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate and coffee. Flavours of roasted malts, chocolate, muscovado, raisins, coffee and spices. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, thick texture and soft carbonation. Oppigårds Thurbo Stout is overall delicious maybe lacks a bit character, barrel aged and slightly stronger this beer would probably be even better.
