3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Warm, bitter, with a hint of underlying fruitiness. Smells both fruity, and a bit boozy. Very thin head. Surpisingly light-bodied,but still all in all a decent stout.

En fin smag af chokolade, den er lidt tynd i smagen men rigtig fin til prisen. God øl.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reasonable amount of foam with comfortable renewable durability. The aroma reveals hard roasted malt, some coffee and a little licorice. The taste is most malty and sweet, mostly as brown sugar. A little coffee and licorice is hidden in the background. Too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As Ceres Stout. Pours a dark brown color, almost black, topped with relatively small tan colroed head. Roasted malts aroma, some chocolate and coffee notes. Not too strong. Taste is similar, sweet, mildly roasty, some chocolate and coffee. Not a bad one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Rating from old notes, tasted in 2004 as Ceres Stout (its original name). Very dark, almost black beer, oily texture, thin light beige head; weakish aroma, malty, chocolate and caramel with some iron and coffee; malty taste, pretty straightforward with somewhat thin body, bit metallic, very caramelly, dryish, coffee-like roasted bitterness in the finish. Typical and very acceptable bottom-fermented Baltic porter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly black with small beige head. Malty aroma with chocolate notes and faint hops. Flavour starts off with chocolate, then comes salty, sweet licorice. Soft, full bodied mouthfeel ending semi dry and bitter. Not bad.
