3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,5l spandert av Rune og delt med ham under rateseanse hos ham 20 Sep 12. Egentlig svart men i sterkt lys slipper det en dyp rødfarge igjennom. Svakt farget kremaktig skum som fester seg godt til glasset. God sjokoladearoma. Smaken er sammensatt: Sjokolade & lakris. Antydning til bær i ettersmaken. Bra men uspennende.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cool concept/label/name. Big aroma--roasted and pleasant with a little bacon (Canadian bacon), too. Dark brown/black, no ruby. Low bitterness. Goes especially well with wheat bread. Decent body. Not bad at all. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco's. More of a porter than a stout. Dark mahogany pour with a thin brown head. A weak aroma but a very complex bitter taste. The bitterness really defines this beer. This beer breaks all the rules but is highly drinkable for those people who like this style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a small light beige head. Nose is light licorice and milk chocolate, aniseed-like herbal tones and some lactic hints. Taste is filter coffee, toffee, milk chocolate, dark malts and some herbal traces. Slightly thin palate, yet smooth. A bit plain - especially for using spices - but a fair enough stout, all in all.
