COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
”Bryggmästare Johan Spendrup har landat i en kolsvart brygd som är något torrare och dessutom lite hårdare rostad än världsstjärnan Guiness. Pricken över i är ett litet stänk av rökmalt som faktiskt lyfter Wisby Stout till en nivå över sin berömda förebild. Efter ett par Guiness är man ganska nöjd efter två Wisby Stout vill man ha en till.”

Thomas Berglund - Svenska Dagbladet

Doft
Tydlig maltrostad ton med inslag av kaffe och rostade mandlar.

Smak
Utpräglad karaktär av mörkrostad malt med inslag av choklad samt en lång efterbeska.

Tap (served in a tall fine glass). Almost black body, with a nice lasting beige creamy head. Light sweet roasted malty aroma. Well balanced flavour. Dry, light sweet. Coffee and hints of red berries. Not too heavy, easy drinking, with a relatively low ABV. (Glenfiddich Warehouse, Stockholm, 04.07.2011)

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2011
Draught at Bishops Arms, Järntorget Göteborg. Dark brown colour with a persistent head. Milk up front in aroma, followed by malty toastiness. Texture is pretty creamy with toasty notes along with juniper berries and a subtle milky backbone. Coffee in the finish. The beer is more fruity than the regular dry stout and that adds to the character. Long lingering balanced bitterness.

indrekson (19) - ESTONIA - DEC 18, 2013
Pretty strong taste. Foam is very thin and aroma is fruity. Not the most typical stout..fruity and some choclate aftertaste.

alex_alkis (294) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2014
An easy to drink and safe stout that gets the job done. Could perhaps have been a little less mawkish
