2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. A deep, opaque brown in colour with a fine though lasting fizzy light tan head on the pour. Surprise, surprise and so my disappointing run with this brewery continues. In a vein similar to my experience with the Szot Amber and Strong this is dominated by a tart acetic character. There’s nothing other than tart fruit on the nose and the roasty component you’d expect and hope for in a stout is barely discernible beneath the apply dryness on the palate. So frustrating particularly given the majority of positive reviews this one’s garnered. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a touch of coffee on the back end but it’s otherwise controlled by a sour fruit tang.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a small but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits and licorice with hints of coffee and wood. Medium sweet and roasty with some fruity and wooden notes and a quite balanced bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbonation. Well balanced and easy to drink. Nice stout, fits perfectly on a hot summer day like today.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darkish brown. Very thick head - too much, really. The aroma has some tartness, which is unfortunate. Mostly chocolate, but again with a little tartness.
