3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(50 cl bottle) Dark brown colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of cocoa, milk chocolate and roasted, with notes of vanilla and hints of dried wood. Light to medium bitterness, with just a little bit of sweetness. Texture is neither sticky nor chewy, but I would not call it thin either. Carbonation is soft. Finish is dryish, with a cocoa/chocolate aftertaste. Good, but you have to be in the mood for chocolate and cocoa to enjoy it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
W aromacie czekolada, kawa, trochę karmelu. Zapach raczej słodki. Piękny głęboki kolor. Drobna, beżowa piana. W smaku mniej słodkie niż się spodziewałem. Czuć czekoladę i palone ziarna, jest goryczka - jak dla mnie prawie idealna. Trochę gęste, jak dla mnie trochę za dużo gazu - zaburza to ogólny odbiór. Mimo to - bardzo dobre piwo.

Surprisingly smooth. Mild chocolate and malt undertones. Somewhat weak in body and taste though.

I have fond memories of this brew. This may have even been my intro to the stout realm.

Black beer with big bubbly head. Aroma has lots of dark chocolate, cocoa and roasted malts. Taste has dark chocolate, coffee, with drying roasted flavors in the end. Sadly very light body with medium carbonation. Sweet chocolate stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 23.2.14. Lovely dark velvety stout with a pleasant round sweet chocolate, stouty smell. Settles very pleasantly and looks fantastic. The taste is slightly lighter than expected, with clear chocolate and coffee malty texture which lifts off the tongue relatively fast. Slightly too sweet for my taste, and the bitterness and chocolate don’t quite sing from the same hymnsheet. Nice long palate where both chocolate and coffee can be detected, but the taste isn’t quite deep and full enough for this to be top class.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Edeka Mohr. Tar black color, with a decent head. Roasted, sweet malt aromas, hints of fig and chocolate. Very creamy, smooth stout. A bit on the sweeter side, with bitter chocolate, and again, lots of cream. Carbonation is a little too high, distracts from the smooth overall impression. Chocolate becomes very flashy in the end, mingles well together with coffee notes. Metallic carbonation is still a little unpleasant. Creamy, bitter, long lasting aftertaste.
