dark brown, thin cream head, large bubbles. Lots of coffee rounded with fruit, red berries, earthy and balanced. Flavor very balanced, plum and cherry brownie with clay mid, awesome Brett, acetic, and cocoa finish, lightest coffee roast. Reminds of drinking the tolcomotto stout over the Stockholm harbor sunrise at 130am with ohmper. God damn, exceeds -the style’s bar--madrugada--and on par my best memories of P4.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a really dark brown body, topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has a touch of red wine tannins and fruit, with roasted malts and some chocolate. Dry, full-bodied and faintly warming on the palate, with flavors of red wine, dark chocolate and coffee, some bitterness. Long finish with tannin bitterness and dark chocolate. Nice indeed, but maybe a bit too sourish. 130928

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of red wine and tart notes is dominant. Taste is also dominated by red wine notes with tart notes and light oak notes easily noticeable. The actual stout base beer is harder to distinguish with light dry roasted malt faintly discernible. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed but tart stout is not really a style that I find overly enjoyable.
