3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, thanks to an IP trade with Tomer, 02/02/13.
Light black with a tan head that thinned to a swirl atop and edgeing.
Nose carries roast malts, oats a la chocolate in porridge, molasses, hint of coffee.
Taste comprises roast malts, chocolate, molasses.
Medium bodied, carbonation is a little over cooked but not detracting too much from this beer, dry finish.
Solid enough stout !

Tastes like olive juice. VERY smokey, the wrong way. Unpleasant bitterness. Too much ABV for stout. BAD beer.
