Draught @ Porgu
Aroma has cocoa, some floury notes, hay and sweet notes. Flavour is sweet and sticky with cocoa, English hops, some hay, tobacco and ash. Also some buttery tones. Too much butter here and too sticky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not very intense roasted malts, coffee, choco, raisins, decent hops for balance. Mostly sweet with light bitterness in finish. Quite smooth. Tasty, but bit plain for me. Thou would like to grab some more

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle. Strange combination of sweet and watery. Wouldn’t call it a stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deep dark roasty brown body with a medium tan head. Aroma has dark chocolate, some smokiness and later something sourish. Sweet roasty and mildly hoppy taste, kind of Danish (=resembling some Mikkeller/To Řl stouts that I’ve had). Finish has a touch too much milky sourness. Nice. A fresher bottle might be even better.

Almost no head, body black. It smells intensive, aromatic, coffee. The taste is coffee, aromatic, darkmalty, natural, bit stony, bitter, roasty. Delicious!
