3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very good stout, though not as thick as the thickest newer IS. Lacey and black thicker looking body. Smooth mouthfeel, with some bitterness in the finish. Chocolate and coffee well integrated. I would like more coffee, and more "Baltic" flavour. Very good drinkability.
Doug’s bottle for his B day.
