3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled bottle at Porterfestivalen 2013.
Black with a light brown head.
Aroma: roasted, coffee, hoppy, light metallic.
Taste: very bitter, pine and grapefruit, coffee, roasted, resin, salmiak, chili.
Grew on me after a while into a nice hoppy and bitter stout, but to begin with, I thought it was too much.

A perfect dry stout with deep hoppy flavour. I was expecting a sweeter beer, but was happily suprised to find out there are strong stouts that don’t taste like syrup.

From the brewery tap. PItch black body, brown head. Overly hoppy, could be more in balance. Black roasted malt tastes through and gives this a bit of a burned taste. Still interesting one and worth trying.

Draugth at Plevna. Black body, brown to gray head. Aroma has huge amount of american hops for imperial stout, some roasted malts and green feeling. Flavour is ashy malt, really roasted notes and huge overall hoppiness. Very complex malt and hop interaction.

the beer has a very dominating taste, of which the most overwhelming one is grapefruit.
the consistency is nice and the beer sinks well for an alc vol 8 beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Semi-strong aroma with a bit roasted flavors of licorice, resin and alcohol. Very dark brown color with brown semi-thick head. The taste has almost everything: strong organic, malty, a bit roasted coffee flavor with wide taste spectrum. But, there is almost none sweetness as the aroma suggests. No licorice, tar etc.. Perhaps a glimpse of chocolate. Palate is too light for this style. Medium carbonation is ok.

33 cl, bottled. Pours black with a nice tan head. Creamy chocolate comes to mind just by looking it. Aroma: Spruces and roasted malt, cocoa. Taste: Roasted bitterness. Mildly sweet. Pleasant. Roasted flavours, long aftertaste, nutty roast. Roasted malt comes nicely without sacrificing hops. Pleasantly in balance. Excellent.
