4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is complex and the color is deceiving. It is dark but lighter in flavor than expected. It is very malty with a great nutty flavor. Primary flavors of carmel, candy sugar and light roasted nuts. Also light chocolate which finishes with a great aftertaste. After I drank this beer, I found myself wishing I bought about 6 more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown sugar and plum on the nose, a little malt, chocolate, rather sweet, perhaps too sweet. Somewhat cloudy with a nice dark brown colour and light head. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color: Burnt hazelnut with amber glints. Foamy off white head with heavy lacing.
Nose: Chocolate covered raisins. Heavy sweet malt. Toffee and light coffeeish notes. Toasted caramel.
Palate: Simplistic. Pruny with bitter chocolate notes. A very drying, tannic finish. Mid weight palate, but velvety nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Red-brown colour, thick creamy and long lasting head. Aroma is caramel and chocolate. Due to the thick head hard to describe. Very slick mouthfeel, medium body, slightly bitter and pleasant roasted taste. Alcohol is well hidden in this one. Only downfall was the metallic taste, but all in all a good stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep ruby / brown caramel-like color, beige to brown head which is pretty thick and long lasting.
A nose of hops and a bit of spices, quite a refreshing smell, hinting of rather bitter beer with a sweet undercurrent, perhaps of candy sugar?
Taste: low-to-medium carbonation, rather full and complex taste with warmth (yet not too alcoholic), caramel and roasted malts, well balanced between bitter and sweet, with a bit more emphasis on the bitter side. Definitely some caramel or candy sugar in there. There’s a lot going on, a nice evolution in the taste. Aftertaste is very much like the taste without alcoholic glow, both the fine bitterness and the smooth caramel stay throughout and there’s also just enough roast that lingers.
Nice, really nice! Complex, balanced, full taste with characteristics of a stout.

22-jan-2011. 50cl bottle at beer tasting. Dark brown beer with good beige head. Strong aroma of chocolate and coffee. The flavour is pretty strong and the bitters are strongly present. For a stout beer, I liked this one pretty much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled this beer from the bottle. Upon pouring I instantly noticed it's ruby brown color with a generous rich brown foam head. The aroma displayed characteristics of rich chocolate and some dried fruit undertones. It had a sweet chocolate flavor with a mild presence on the tongue. It finished with some enjoyable sourness. This is a very tasty treat that I recommend trying.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 330mL bottle into snifter. Appearance is dark brown-red with thick fluffy tan head. Wonderful aromas of toffee, caramel, malt, raisin, with a hint of chocolate. Flavors of deep roasted malts, raisin, with a hint of bitterness at the end. Good balance. Mouthfeel is light for a full flavored beer like this and carbonation is high. Pleasantly surprised by this beer. Like a cross between a stout and a Belgian SDA. Well done.
