Decent black stout. Not overly thick or in your face but balanced with a bit of chocolate and coffee. This is a stout for your nonbeer buddy.

Russo (1864) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2015
Deep black color with a very thin off-white head that keeps a nice lacing for a long time. Aroma is roasted malts, notes of coffee, dark fruits and slightly chocolate. Flavor is like aroma with a little bit more hoppy notes. Low carbonation and medium body with roasted malt finish.

Overall good. Lacking a bit after taste, ends fast. Easy to drink, not to subtile.

Overbearing taste and smell of roasted malt, a thin mouthfeel and watery aftertaste make this not the best of stouts, though it is worth trying and it certainly looks good in the glass. Label is pretty nice, too.

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
500ml bottle from Tallinn, black colour, small frothy mostly lasting brown head, good lacing. Moderately malty very roasty aroma of coffee and chocolate with moderate earthy and resiny hops and some smoke. Taste is very smooth compared to the aroma, slightly sweet at first with moderately bitter finish with moderate roastiness. Medium to full body, oily texture, average carbonation. One of the better stouts I’ve had.
