2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a huge, foamy, light brown head over a dark brown body. Aroma is sour with dark fruits, cheery, and cheese. Taste is cloyingly sweet, with notes of urinal and pennies. I couldn’t take another sip. Sweet stout is one thing, but really?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl bottle) Almost black, opaque colour with a huge brown foamy head. Yeasty, sweet and slightly vinous berry-fruity aroma with lighter notes of toasted malt in the background. Sweet flavour with a tinge of acidity, light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Sugary and slightly ascorbic fruity and minimal toasty malty taste; sweet and moderately tart berry-fruity finish with a nasty metallic note, that fades away after a short while. Does not work for me (02.III.09).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown with nice dark brown, creamy head. Aroma is subtle sweet chocolate, dry, yeast. Way too sweet, once again, chocolate, lacto, some coffee, very metallic. Medium to light with light, fluffy carb. Ugh... once again, way too sweet, I think this brewery has a problem with attenuation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - 330ml. Opaque black body with low carbonation and a lasting brown foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with biscuity, grainy and chocolate hints. Taste is slightly misbalanced. It is dominated by sweetness and ends with a short bittersweet finish. Not a great Stout, but still drinkable.
