3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an almost opaque black with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, espresso and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate and bitter roasted malts. Nice dry finish with a medium light body but a complexity of flavors. Carbonation is a bit too high in this beer and something more to give it a bit more body or a slick mouthfeel would make this wonderful stout great!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Stofan, Reykjavik, apparently 6.5% ABV
Black color with generous head. Light aroma of roasted malt, metallic. Smooth mouthfeel; plain roasted malt flavor, not ashy, with a light lactose touch that contributes to the balance; correct bitterness; but the final is metallic.
Monodimensional, not bad but plain.
