3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 11/7 2015. 33 cl can from Aldi (Uglens Stout). Pours clear dark reddish brown with beige head. Settles as creamy layer of foam. Aroma is sweet of cocoa and chocolate. Soft carbonation. Taste is sweet as well with notes of cocoa and chocolate. Only weak bitterness. Pleasant enough for a discount stout even though a little unbalanced.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Foam is light brown and coarse. The aroma is quite amazing delicious of nougat. Nothing with the usual aroma pattern with hard roasted malt, rich coffee and / or chocolate, but nougat that smells soft and seductive. The taste is soft and dark chocolate notes with a little touch of coffee. Furthermore, it tastes a bit of hazelnuts and sugar, but without ever being too sweet. It still has the edge and elegant hoppy bitterness that puts the chocolate into fine relief. The finish is a little watery and reminiscent of a dry stout, but the chocolate theme surfaces slowly retains a fine aftertaste relatively long.

Wow, what a surprise at the DKK 2,95 bargain bin at Aldi! Balanced stout, with malty, toasty, hoppy notes all present in a relatively harmonious configuration. Could be better with more creaminess or velvetiness, but certainly fine stuff

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle obtained in a trade with Dedollewaitor. Thx! Drank @ home. Very dark brown blackish mahogany, fizzying away tanned head. Heavy cacao powder nose, light instant coffee, sweet hazelnut, sweet soy chocolate milk. Taste is light herbal, wood, vegetable cacao, soy chocolate milk, sweet sugar, faint roast, ashes, touch instant coffee, light lactose,… Thin body, light instant coffee, light ashes. Reminds me of a Baltic Porter, nothing stellar but drinks okay. Looking at the ratings this is a great cost/value beer, worth picking up if local & cheap. Meaning as a cheap brew, this is a great deal.
