3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. BB 15 Apr 14. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Black colour with a small tan head.
Roasted malt, coffee, dryness and mild sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, dryness, ash, mild hoppy bitterness and more coffee. Too much coffee for me. Not that creamy either.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nice aroma, great color, but the aftertaste is way too smokey! It's like you've been sitting close to the smoking campfire all day long. That same smell the campfire leaves on your clothes, that's the aftertaste this beer leaves in your mouth.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very, very drinkable. Slightly honey sweet but balanced with a little malted sharpness and a dryish biscuit finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nearly black with a little white head. Aroma of roasted dark malts, coffee, some chocolate and rye bread. Taste is also very roasty and dryish towards the finish. Flavours of bread, biscuit, coffee, chocolate. Malts dominate, hops do not appear. Palate is medium bodied, smooth and indeed a bit creamy, flat carbonation. This is a pretty standard, typical stout that delivers what it promises - well balanced, nice to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 500 mL bottle. Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that dissipates to thin cap, leaving light lacing. Aroma of soy sauce, roasted malt, and raisins. Taste follows, with a creamy mouth and slightly bitter finish. Solid english stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500. Pours black with a dense and creamy tan head. Big sweet milk chocolate nose showing mild roast notes. Watery, somewhat chalky body. Milk chocolate with a little bit of sweetness that’s complex, almost fruity but not quite. Mild chalky chocolatey finish. Not bad.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Slightly coffee slightly nutty slightly chocolate. Drinking cold the chocolate notes come through with a nice bittersweet finish. The finish is what this beer is about.

Cerveza espesa con fuerte sabor a chocolate y café, retro gusto amargo y ligero, corona escasa pero bien marcada al inicio, fuerte aroma a alcohol aunque es una cerveza ligera que hace de perfecto acompañante a una comida ligera
