0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
How do I hate thee? Shall I count the ways? Horrible label. Open the bottle and it gushes. Unless you have a pint pot handy youíll lose half of it. Eventually very dark brown with dirty, frothy tan head and mucho sediment. The nose is slightly lactose. Taste medium sweet, light bitter. Could have been a 3.8 without the gushing or with a decent warning and a better label. As it is ...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A gusher, leaving only 6-7 cl of beer in the bottle after popping the cap. Itís dark brown, unclear, and with a small, beige head. The aroma is roasted, almost charcoal-ish, with some grass, cooked vegetables and pine cones. Roasted malts, charcoal, grass and cooked vegetables in the flavor, some bitterness chiming in. Lasting finish. Not an impressive one, terribly gushing, but sort of honest. 140608

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, label says 5.7%. Bottled on 17/05/2013. Huuge gusher, some of it went down the sink, mansges to save 2/3 of the bottle. 15 minutes later... Black colored, thick light brown head. Hmm, aroma is very similar to many De Molen stouts I have tried. Coffee, mocha, roastedness, yeast. Flavor has coffee, chocolate, licorice, yeast. Very smooth as the foam finally settles and the most of the carbonation out of the way. Quite thin though.

330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in a nonic pint glass. Slow gusher. Dark brown, canít see through with lots and lots of floaties, with a light brown head. Lovely aroma, lots of dark fruits, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla, cinnamon and sour black cherries. Taste follow suite, slightly sour, quite full of flavour, chocolaty and a bit smoky. Toasted and coffee forward aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy/oily texture. Solid.
