07-07-2017; bottle; at home (bought online at www.drankgigant.nl, Oost-Souburg, The Netherlands).
The beer looks perfect. It truly is a lovely dark stout. Without light the beer is pitch black. Strong light reveals a beautiful ruby red glow. The beer looks rather clear, but it is so dark that it is hard to tell. On top of the beer some nice brownish foam is formed. Foam retention is rather low, which is rather normal for this type of beer.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is like a good stout should smell like. There are nice bittersweet malt aromas. I smell some nice bittersweet chocolate, lovely roasty and bitter coffee and some touches of just toasted malts. I love those dark malt aromas. There is a nice slight touch of hops, but it is minimal. It doesn’t interfere with the malts, but I wouldn’t mind slightly more hops.
The taste of the beer is also lovely. It is just what I like. There are nice bittersweet malts, with flavours of chocolate, coffee, some caramel and just some toasted malts. Really not bad. I like it. There is also a nice bitter balancing touch of hops. Just enough to make the beer well balanced. I think that this beer doesn’t need more hops, however I don’t mind a strongly hoped stout.
Palate is good. Medium body, not as full as some stouts can be, and a nice slightly creamy texture. I know more creamy ones though. Carbonation is medium, resulting in a nice tingly touch. The finish is very good. It is filled with toasty malts, even a touch of liquorice, and some nice toasty hops. I like this one. xmunozsbd (118) - Sabadell, - JUL 6, 2017
de tirador... lleuger toc fumat que li dóna el seu punt interessant... li falta una mica de cos. loscovar (400) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle in Piran, Slovenia. Slovenians love it because the founder of the berwery it’s from there. Really good beer! kaserov (800) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 3, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (burbujas amplias y retención decente). Carbonatación inexistente. Textura oleosa. Aroma hiper rico: malta torrefacta, ligeros ahumados, cacao, toques de café. En boca algo menos intensa, con mucho cacao, café y malta torrefacta. Final muy ligeramente amargo y torrefacto. Escaso postgusto. Muy disfrutable, aunque ganaría con algo más de cuerpo y potencia en boca.
