3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle @ The Bishops Arms, Stockholm. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and caramel. Taste is dark malts, cocoa, with a moderate sweetness. Nicely balanced chocolate stout, although my heart says this is leaning more towards a porter.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black pour with a fine dense beige head. A little bit to much chocolate and vanilla in both aroma and flavor. Also a bit to sweet for my likings.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ ÖÖWF2015: Awseome aroma from milky chocolates. Huge in the nose from chocolates. Taste however does not deliver on the same level, although chocolates and roasted malts comes forward on a more "normal" level compared to the nose. Vanilla and milky sweet finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copenhagen 21/11 2015. 33 cl bottle from Fakta. Pours clear dark brown with off-white head. Settles as flimsy layer of foam. Aroma is overpowering synthetic sweet vanilla and chocolate. Kind of reminds me of the smell of a chocolate milkshake. Soft carbonation and oily palate. Taste is quite watery compared to the smell. Chocolate sweetness and only very little bitterness. But there is a little dark chocolate as well. Not much else. Miss the coffee bitterness of the usual stout. Long sweet aftertaste. Too much McDonalds milkshake and too little beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated from old notes. Smells rich like caramel chocolate. Heavy, clings to the tongue, yet very refreshing. Just the right level of carbonation. Its clinginess threatens to become oily, but never does. Interesting and well made.

En stor smag af chokolade rammer min næse, og ikke mindst mine smagsløg. Ikke meget humle.
