2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Pours dark (coffee) brown colour with decent brown head. Relatively weak aroma of coffee, strong astringency and sourness prevail in the aroma. Light body with medium carbonation. Tatse is similar to aroma. At first mild flavour of coffee and smoke, followed by dark chocolate.
Finish is unpleasantly sour (maybe draught version isn’t soo sour). Not my kind of stout.

Pours dark, hazy, with minimum head. Roasted smell resembles plumbs. Taste is slightly bitter and quite easy. Medium body, not quite what I expected for a stout. An average beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Sir William’s, Ljubljana. Poured a black body with no head really. Oily, roasty full aroma, notes of caramel. Light, sweetish mild taste, good maltiness, roasty, light plastic in the finish (in a good way, chalk that up to my inability to remember a more proper descriptor), dry roasty finish. Not aggressive, creamy, well executed. 76 43 76 34 14

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kita, thanks! Roasted and caramelly with notes of leather and chocolate. Dry, light tart, with a roasted and chocolatey finish. Surprisingly there were notes of smoked ham in there. Rather rough around the edges overall, not too drinkable, though it gets better as it warms.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,50L. Courtesy of Kita. Dark brown/black colour with huge, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of strong dark coffee, chocolate, burnt malts and smoke. There are also some spices and herbs in the background. Taste starts heavy bitter and finishes the same way. in between there is a smoke taste. It would be way better, if the brewers could reduce smoke to minimum (or there was something wrong). This way it seems more like smoked beer to me.
