2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from DSG. Thanks Barak! It pours a very dark brown/black color with tan head that disappears quickly. The aroma is full with chocolate syrup and cocoa powder. Pretty sweet and simple. The flavor is on the sour side with some copper, roast and dirt. Astringent in the palate. Sour finish.

Sampled at gregwilson’s tasting. Dark brown. No foam. Ok, this is odd. Earth and some kind of funkiness. Something like chocolate and syrup. Chicory. Yep, odd.

Bottle [from Euro Swap 2015-2 thanks to Tomer] @ home. Opaque dark brown to black color, medium sized light brown head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, lightly a sweet hint. Taste malts, brown malts, bitter. Maybe it’s me but I don’t really get anything else. Decent body and carbonation. Solid stout.

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and some bread. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and bread. Decent.
