Deep Black with a small off-white head that keeps a lacing just for while. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is like aroma with more bitterness sense. Light to medium carbonation and medium body with a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice black stout with small head. Sweet malty smell. Bitter long-lasting aftertaste. Too much iron, tested on skin. What a shame!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Tallin, dark coffee colour, medium frothy mostly vanishing light brown head, fair lacing. Roasty aroma of plums, chocolate, coffee and herbs. Taste is initially moderately bitter with a bit of sweetness and acidity, turning into a long bitter finish with a slightly acetic and burnt feel. Medium body, somewhere between oily and watery texture, lively carbonation. Not a bad dark beer, could’ve had a bit more depth in aroma and the body felt quite light for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours a clear-looking dark brown body under a dense, finger thick beige head. The aroma is roasted, with some caramel notes and dried fruits. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but sure good. There’s a lightly burnt note in the flavor, with chocolate and coffee, some caramel and dried fruits. It’s full-bodied and dry with a nice carbonation. Lasting roasted finish with chocolate and coffee. A tasteful and pleasant one indeed. 140207
