3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by bu11zeye. Poured a dark amber, clear body with a tannish lasting head leaving some nice lacing. Aromas of candi sweetness, caramel, milk duds and dark fruits. Flavors were candi sweet, burnt sugars (bitter), figs and floral hops in the finish. Aromas were more appealing than the flavor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Mi-orge, Mi-houblon. Black with thin brown head. Nose is big on the malts, ever so slightly undertoning acetone, ash, plenty of spice, dark fruits, hazelnut, fresh tobacco. Mouth is slightly thin considering the nose, green, malty, liquorice, very heavily charcoaled. Thin end, with a smoky charcoal filling at the swallow. Quite solid, but the smoke disguises the subtleties.

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.
