3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. at 7,3% abv. Opaque black with brown edges, almost no head (unfortunately, the cap had a nice deep dent - but no leaks!). The aroma was actually quite pleasant, rose perfume on a light roasty, even smoky, background, some burnt leather maybe? The taste is worse. Almost flat (is it the cap?). Dry, with a dry and astringent peppery young stout character. Much less roast (forget chocolate and coffee etc.).

Good beer. Fantastic extraordinary chocolate aroma, I havent tried such choco aroma, so sweet like belgian chocolate, like Lindt, or Mozart chocolate. No much head. It is written that its imperial stout on the bottle - NO IT IS NOT!
No sparkling. Nice black pepper notes, this is first stout I try and that can be eaten with meat. Nice roasty character. A little bit sweet and lambic taste. Nice Bulgarian Rose aroma. Good beer!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the 500ml nicely-labeled bottle into a snifter. The carbonation is low. The colour is black with a brownish, medium head. So far – it looks like a typical example of a stout. The nose is very pleasant - with a bunch of roses and a reminiscence of dark chocolate. The taste is complex - there is a lot more chocolate than on the nose, but one can still feel the roses and the two flavours blend together very well. The hops are well balanced. The yeast gives a slightly earthy flavour and combined with the other flavours, it gives the illusion of a freshly baked cake. A surprising and extremely interesting brew! It will definitely reveal more of its secrets paired with foods.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Smells like turkish delight mixed with rich soil with boozy aromas. The rose is hard to get past. Opaque dark brown with a very slightly pink hue, the head is yellowy with an aolmost indistinguishable touch of red. Flavour is super rosy, a sharp, citrussy sensation too, not sure where that’s coming from but it makes me imagine it represents the thorns of the roses. There is also a pepperyness, perhaps where the hotness is coming from? Texture is grippy and full bodied. As I get used to the rosewater flavour it becomes less hard hitting but still interesting. Absurdly unusual but hopefully in the future we will see more of this sort of thing.
