3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought at Kaufland Umag, Croatia. Black with creamy beige head, diminishes quickly. Bacon aroma at first, some acidity from yeasts? Taste begins bitter - smoked wood dominates with hints of smoked bacon saltiness. Low carbonation, full body, strong aftertaste. Lacks balance, but it’s a serious, manly stout.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a black with a light brown medium dense head. Aromas of chalk, bittersweet chocolate, some dark sweet fruits. Taste is pretty roasted, dark chocolate and sweet fruits. Slight coffee and licorice. Pretty boring stout to be honest.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark chocolate pour, dense light brown head.
Aroma is lacking something, maybe the dense head doesn’t give off many aromas, without head the sniffing is easier and toasted notes are the most noticeable, but still lacking something.
Taste is full with roasted, chocolate, maybe some licorice, notes. Low carb and the texture is creamy. The balanced bitterness is just right.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black, with a decent mocha head. Aroma of roast and chalk, with notes of bittersweet chocolate. Taste dry and roasty, notes of espresso, ash, bitter chocolate, and a hint of liquorish. Lower carbonation. Palate dry and roasty with just a hint of chocolate. Would love to try this one on cask.
