Nice roasty flavour. Bitterness is a bit overwhelming masking subtle tastes. Overall good beer and I recommend it to everyone.

smells like a guinness but taste is much more stout...besides the strong roasted malt flavor off the bat with a bit of bitterness, the finish is watered down. Not as smooth as guinness either...doesn’t stack up

Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pitch black body, medium creamy light beige head. Nose is mild coffee and peat-ish notes, grains, oats and hints of caramel. Taste is creamy coffee and peat tones, oats and mild grains with hints of licorice and faint metal. Medium creamy body, soft to medium carbonation. Quite enjoyable for a stout of this strength.
