2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours totally black with a very small beige head. Aroma is very roasted malt and little else. Taste is also hard roasted malt with the slightest hint of chocolate. Quite watery and lacking any complexity. Didn’t really like this one much at all.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown and pretty flat - took a lot of work to get any head at all. Chocolatey-fudgey aroma of industrial stout. Thin and vaguely coffeeish. A little bit like an Asian iced coffee - Pokka Charcoal or something like that. Industrial stout, never really comes together.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 L bottle, bought @Centra, Colosseum, Oslo. A black beer with ruby highlights. Medium-sized, dense sand-colored head. Crisp aroma of ashy dark malts and cocoa. Clean malt flavor. Dryish cocoa/unsweetened black chocolate. A fresh sourish note and suggestions of wood and dark dried fruits. Medium to light in body weight. Easy on the palate. Powdery mouthfeel. Dry, mild roasty and ashy malt ending. Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Black with hints of ruby at the edges. Medium-sized fine-laced beige head that clings to the glass. Clean roasted aroma with delicate phenolics. Hints of sausages. Chocolate and a little ash. Nice roasted character. Quite dry, but with a rich body. The ash runs through the middle and lingers all way towards the end. Crisp dry easy-going hop bitterness. Smooth texture. I like this one a lot. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma aromatic with light hint of central European hops , woody roast like bottom. 7-
Appearance there might be slight haze but that was hard to see as you might have guessed. Brownish base with darker beige like top. Some lace. 3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Dark roast with woody feel , slight bitterness that followed. Fundamentally fine but its character felt bit sterile. Felt factory like made…no soul.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Pulp. Black, flat, and dead looking, with almost no head. Smells sweet and syrupy with an extract aroma, like vanilla extract. Is thin and not as syrupy as it smells. . Has toasted coffee bean in the finish, but with a Starbucks frappucino feel to it. Tastes better than it smells, though, and the slightly burnt aftertaste is nice.
