I’m feeling chocolate and coffee. I agree with Brew4Dug. When it’s colder, it’s better.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske delt med Ovesen: svart rubin med flott beige skum. Diskret aroma av nybrent kaffe, mørk sjokolade og ristet brød. Nydelig balansert smak, her har de truffet innertier. Stor og myk munnfylde. Deilig tørr avslutning med et hint av rugsyrlighet selv om der ikke er brukt rug.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black. Large tan head. Coffee aroma. Flavor of dark coffee and chocolate. Palate is on the thin side. Dry roasty mouthfeel. I was surprised that this had a lighter body, but with an ABV of 5.8% that probably is expected. Overall a good stout, maybe very good considering the lower alcohol content, but not crazy good. Would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a dark brown to almost black with mocha colored head. doesn’t last to long. in its own right this a good. but for me this is not so much a good stout. its does have some good aroma and the flavor is pretty decent. but stouts usually have a thicker body and somewhat a stronger flavor. that being said this has all the characteristics of a good stout but this one is not for me.

Pours black with medium head. Really nice chocolate notes with a bit of charred marshmallow. Bit of sweetness on the palate is cut by a bitter char. Richly creamy mouthfeel, low-medium carb.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"looks great, but it’s an odd one. a dry stout, but not in the irish style, so what you end up with is a somewhat hoppy, but still thin, west coast style stout. not bad at all, but not anything special. like shakespeare stout’s redheaded stepchild."
