Bottled 11/30/17. Reviewed 1/22/18. Roasted malt, perhaps some coffee aroma. Slightly sweet smelling. Tall, tan-to-brown thick head that recedes very slowly with sticky lacing left behind. Nearly black with tinges of brown at the edges. Bitter initial taste, with the bitterness throughout the middle, finish and into the aftertaste. It is not overly bitter, but the bitterness is front and center, providing a good balance to the smooth malts forming the underlying body. Moderate mouth feel, becoming just a bit thin on the finish. Roasted coffee taste, with hints of chocolate, especially in the middle. The sweetness that was in the aroma is not evident at all in the taste. Dry and bitter finish. Classic American stout.

12 oz bottle into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip glass on 12th Jan 2018 while on holiday in California. Lovely beer all round, dark brown with a fast fading beige head (the only down side). Malts and more malts in both the nose and taste, roasted and toasted, semi-sweet with a used leather sadddle twist flavour wise. Liked it.

Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from the Meijer in Michigan (drive home from Chicago)
Consumed: from a pilsner glass
Aroma: Smells malty and sweet with a hint of chocolate.
Appearance : unfiltered dark brown with decent head that disappears within the first few sips. Very faint lacing.
Taste: very well balanced. Malty, sweet with a hint of hops. Not overpowering like mosts stouts can be.
Palate : medium body. Bittersweet aftertaste. Good carbonation.
Overall: Such a well balanced and easy drinking beer. A lot of stouts are heavy and loaded with hops that are masked by heavy sweetness. This was about perfect. I was glad to try and will definatley buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

0,33 l bottle. Pours dark brown with small dense dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is quite full, texture gentle and creamy, carbonation average. Finish is long, starts as chocolate and licorice, then roast bitterness and it ends as lingering coffee and chocolate.

355ml bottle from Uba ja humal.
Poured pretty much black in color with a creamy tan head. Perfect looks.
Coffee and licorice in aroma, roastedness, ash.
Ashy, burnt malts, roastedness and quite alot of licorice in flavor. Dry bitter finish with coffee and bitter chocolate. Sonewhst creamy mouthfeel despite the burntness. I like licorice so this is ok in my book. pitch992 (254) - SLOVENIA - DEC 18, 2017

licquorice, leaves, coffee, raisins, chocolate, mint. not too burnt, smooth. Alcohol warmth appropriate. Medium body, medium bitterness, medium sweetness. Soft carbonation, bitter finish that isn't harsh. Well rounded, pleasant and not overbearing. A good one.
