2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof - Black color, small beige head, not lasting - Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, hints of wood, and a weird vinous aroma - flavor is roasted malt, licorice, coffee and dark chocolate with this weird vinous flavor same as aroma - full body, sour, fizzy carbonation, sour finish who hide all the other thing - I’m a little bit disappointed, all the other beers I drink from Storm&Anchor was really good but not this one, probably a bad bottle.

Black color with very small head. The aroma mixes some roasted malt with light vinous sourness; it reminds me of BFM Alex Le Rouge. Smooth mouthfeel, good mix of dark chocolate and roasted malts, with a mild vinous character, and some Bourbon; correct bitterness.
I’m not sure this is what they intended, but it’s much better balanced and interesting than the unbarrelled version.

from Erzbierschof Bottle Shop. Strong malted aromas mixed with pleasant wood notes. The finish is a little light, but it stays well on the palate nonetheless. Strong ABV, but not in-your-face. Altogether a well-balanced Stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a poor yet persistent beige foam; roasted with a decent woody nose, aroma of coffee and ashes with hints of black chocolate underneath; full-bodied, velvety and pretty thick palate, bitter and salty, quite dry and long coffeish and chocolatey finish with moderate wood reminiscence - accurate and very good
