Typical stout pour, dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts, coffee, etc. Tastes extremely watery for a stout and is only 4%. Definitely not one I would drink again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s.
Small dark tan head disappears quickly, barely any lacing, body is near black. Nose is roasted coffee and nuts, a little sweet fruit. Flavour is coffee, chocolate followed by berries and nuts. Coffee returns on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a stout. Medium carbonation. Decent flavour but let down a bit in other areas.

Pullon takia ostettu. Todella tumma ja hapokas. Ei makea, mutta muuten mainio. Kyllä tätä kannattaa ostaa.

500ml bottle at home. Dark brown pour, thick dark brown head which goes very quickly. Aromas of dark chocolate and ash. Taste has more chocolate and coffee bitterness. Rich mouthfeel for the strength. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 500 ml. bottle. It pours deep black with a moderate beige-tan head that slowly fades. The aroma is like burnt chocolate and wood. I love that burnt malty aroma. Smoky might be another term for it but "burnt" seems a better description. Thin to medium body. The taste also has a burnt malt flavor with a light bitterness to balance it out. An easy to drink stout.
