3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings.
The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits.
The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops.
It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy.
All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink.

Beautiful black beer with a lasting brown head. Fine lacing. Aroma: smoked malt, but also fruity, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, hops in the background. Taste: really well balanced. More hoppy than most stouts, but it goes well with the burnt bitterness from the malt. This connection gives it a very distinct tar-like taste and being half finnish i really enjoy the taste of tar. Really good one.

On tap. Pours black with small beige head; roasted malty, freshly hopped aroma with strong coffee notes and hints of chocolate; flavor is quite hard roasty, bitter and sweet at the same time, including notes of coffee, licorice and chocolate, aftertaste also has a touch of pine; medium body, quite smooth. Obama should me careful not to spoil the name of this brew.

pours a deep deep brown/black with brown edges with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. smell is a rich sweet malt with a peat backing to add some interest. Taste is similar though could have a thicker mouthfeel for me.

Nice enough stout. Not up there with Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, but nice enough.
Purchased on tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Rating fuzzy after drink, but numbers apply.

very dark pour with a large biege head. For those who like smoked porters, this is a bridge into stouts... If you want one.

The aroma has chocolate, coffee and some sweeter toffee notes. it pours a dark black color with full head. The taste has some light to medium sweetness and then some good bitterness as it opens up on your palate with some full rich chocolate flavors, some nice roasted coffee and light smokey peat. The body is full and creamy. Overall this is awesome, I like that the peat isn’t overpowering but still integral to the flavor.
