4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Etre Gourmet.
Pours deep deep chestnut, bordering on black with a firm, creamy, off-white head. Complex caramel malts aroma, light vinious, plums, a bit of coffee and liqourice. Medium carbonation, light grainy but lovely dryish and very creamy palate. Flavour has great milky chocolate, some hazelnuts, caramel, light toasted caramel, some mild coffee. A bit vinious and warming with a mild, but firm bitterness towards the end. Lovely.

From bottle. Black and opague. Roast, licorice and onions in the aroma. Sharp citrus flavor, roasty with coffee and licorice. Very tasty, but out of balance.

courtesy of Carole and Anna - black beer with a quite long lasting dark beige foam; roasted aroma of mocha and vanilla, some undefined spices; medium-bodied, pretty fair sweetness underneath; finishes dry and bitter with a strong spicy, medicinal herbs-like touch - a bit weird

750ml bottle (Alvinne webshop)
6 On opening a fruity estery aroma, but also some acetone. In the glass it’s a bit of a stodgy chocolatey mashiness. Some soy.
4+ Slightly cloudy dark brown. Large dark bready head, fairly persistent. Some bits in suspension are the only downside.
7 Rich burnt taste, quite a lot of liquorice, bitter and barky. Salty almost. Bitterness is quite tangy. Slightly sweet, but well attenuated.
4 Smooth and full palate, pleasant soft carbonation. Finish is very bitter and liquoricey, saccharine as well. Something almost buttery too.
13 Very solid beer. Not so much a typical stout at all. Bitterness and liquorice perhaps a bit over-the top. Covers 9% very well. Glad I had Minna and Janne to share this with, 750ml of too much for two people.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good, reasonably stable, thick-set, dirty cream-coloured head over virtually black beer, if with a reddish sheen. Heavy, aromatic nose with old wood, dark chocolate and an alcoholpunch with deliberate spirit (Bourbon, whisky)character. Superbly "praliné", but with full chocolate. Ashy, dry, roasted malt/stoutflavour with just a hint of alcoholsweetness retronasal. Bit of sweat, paprika, and of course, chocolate, ultra-dry but for the alcohol. Warming up, I seem to get some coriander. Surprisingly thin for its stamina and ABV. Probably very attenuated. This is a dry stout, on the verge of an I.S., and to my tastebuds, barel-aged.
