3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Xroads. Poured a nice looking pitch black body with an average sized beige foamy head. Aroma of burnt malts, black toast, dark bakers chocolate, burnt marshmallow skins, cold old coffee beans. Flavor is similar but add in some vanilla extract. Medium to slightly fuler body, milky, tight bubbly carbonation.

Dark stout color pour with creamy brown head. Dry earthy malt aroma with a hint of roast. Flavor is dry roasty crackers with some bitter hops. I like the contribution of rye malt in a stout.

65 cl bottle (9,2%)@ home. Arkma has fruity hopa and cocoa. Flabour has strong fruity hops, some cocoa and salty licorice. Feels like a black IPA - a balanced one I mean.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; Pour is murky brown, with a two fingered, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass - It retains fairly well - with sticky lacing presence here. It reminds more of a european stout - with molasses, char, and grassy hop presence on the nose. The flavor profile is initial bittering, moving to cocoa, roast, and this thing fades - the tasting note of rye is relevant - but ultimately it fades to oblivion in my book, lacking the chocolate / caramel balance. Just No.
