Bottle: Pours a deep brown almost black color with a finger tall tan head that doesn’t linger for very long. The aroma is roasty chocolate malts and molasses with a touch of alcohol. The taste is not what I was expecting. It’s a little salty with smokey roasted malts really dominating and really no sweetness. It’s actually lighter in body than you would think with a slick texture and sort of flat in the carbonation category and has a dry finish. Overall I liked this beer but didn’t love it. This is rated as an imperial stout but really feels more like a regular stout. It just didn’t have the malt backbone I was looking for.

Fules (1058) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2017
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Csokoládés, aszalt gyümölcsös illatvilág, némi konyakos beütéssel. Csokis, pörkölt malátás, aszalt gyümölcsös ízvilág, halvány kávés beütéssel. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Jól összerakott, kellemes stout.
