2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not knocked out by this one. Sort of like a thin bodied porter with cocoa powder in it. It does pour well, into the SS nonic which was included in a box with three 550ml sample brews. Aroma of sweet chocolate is quite evident. Big beige head that dissipates to a film. So far, so good on aroma and appearance. Next the disappointments. The taste is sort of a watery Swiss Miss with some hops in it, the body is quite thin for a stout, and this brew lacks any complexity. Yet another primo choice for those who actually don’t like beer and ale. Bland.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Biertempel, Linz: Aroma is sweet, intensive milk chocolate note, vanilla, cacao powder. Black color, creamy brown head. Flavor is sweet, intensive milk chocolate notes, cacao, roastiness. Ends roasty with roast bitterness and some cacao powder dryness. Much to sweet for me and chocolate note is also much too intensive.
