3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from big brown bottle into a nonic pint glass, of course. It poured an opaque, very dark brown color, reddish at the edges, with thin and short-lived beige foam. It would kick up a new head and some lace each time it was swirled, though. True-to-style stout aromas and flavors: bready, toasty, roasty (but not overdone), dark cherries and black plums, with hints of chocolate and coffee. Medium carbonation, chewy mouthfeel and lingering complex aftertaste. Very tasty and moreish.

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 05.11.2009
Aroma has licorice, some soy sauce, coffee notes and hints of cocoa. Flavour has salty licorice, some cocoa, semi‐dark chocolate, hints of ash and soy sauce. Quite watery for this ABV – and quite typical foreign stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black in the glass with a slight touch of red. Also it’s a bit translucent for a stout in my opinion. Slight cardboard aroma followed by chocolate and a hint of coffee. Thin mouth feel. A touch of coffee liqueur, roasted malt and mocha flavors. Overall, not too bad. Nice for the winter months.

50cl bottle poured into a tulip. Pours cola brown with thin head. Nose is faint cocoa. Taste is malty, chocolate, a bit of roast. Thin mouthfeel and little aftertaste. For 8% it doesn't taste too boozy. Good value!
