3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Othmar Stout) 330 ml bottle from bierkoning, thanks! Into a snifter, ABV 7.2%
Deep brown, almost black coloured beer, with a small and thin beige head. Average retention, some big bubbles left behind and light lacing around the glass.
Aroma of oats, light liquorice, light roasted malts.
Taste follows, liquorice and oats mainly, more roasted malts now, especially on the finish and the aftertaste. Seems lighter than a 7.2% beer. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste, with good duration.
Medium thick body, nicely carbonated. Very dry palate.
