4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black. Light tan head. Lacing is present. It sticks to side of glass.
Coffee. Roasted grains. Sweet-jesusness.
Roasted coffee, mixed with a bit of sweetness. Probably the Jesus. Very good flavor.
Velvety. Bit of a bitterness from the roastedness lingers. But is expected.
Very good beer. Although a bit dry, it is labeled as a style that is such. For the style it is very much the example. And very good on it’s own.

[Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Very black with small beige head. Dry with light body and soft mouthfeel. Lightly salty and discretely flavourful. There’s roasty malt and tobacco. The hop rate is fairly low, so the lightly salty finish has less than medium bitterness. An excellently balanced session stout. The antipode to US microbrews.

On cask at The Live and Let Live. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. A pitch black stout with a foamy, medium-sized beige head that dissipates reasonably quickly leaving a thin layer of carbonation. Aromas of roasted malts, plenty of sweet milk chocolate and a certain degree of perfume. The flavours are based around dark chocolates, coffee and a thick toffee maltiness. The finish produces a dry, lasting smokiness as well as some chocolate and more subtle perfuminess in the aftertaste. A dry body with a thickish, soft mouthfeel.
