Bottle. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dry roasted malts with some dark grains and a hint of bitter chocolate. Flavor has strong roasted malts that add a good amount of bitterness and leave to a dry finish backed by bitter dark grains. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
From a bottle purchase at a whole foods. The pour is a dark brown with a minimum white head. A above average c02 with a chickory chocolate and coffee notes. Jrwhitney6 (523) - - AUG 27, 2014
Very enjoyable stout. Pours a dark, dark brown (ok, maybe black) with a nice cinnamon color 1 finger head. Nose of coffee, roasted malt. Taste is coffee, black licorice...good stuff, easy to drink, too.

Bottle. Pours midnight black with slight head, quickly fades. Aroma is burned wood, cheap milk chocolate. Taste hits you with the lactose, molasses and burned sugars. As it warms, these notes mellow into a very drinkable stout. Quite enjoyable.

Black and opaque with reddish fringing and a durable medium brown head. The aroma is the standard roast and chocolate grain combo with a slight mineral pungency. The taste is outstanding, all the virtues of a dry stout with just enough caramel and dried fruit to make it stupidly drinkable. At a mere 6%, I guess you couldn’t get hurt too much, but this is a beer that you want to devour.
That intense ’drinkability’ does mean that the body is a bit light and those of us who like to chew our stout may be a bit disappointed.
The finish is remarkably persistent, you’ll be tasting this beer long after it’s gone. eRock_2013 (530) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 I think this beer has confirmed for me that Malka is my new favorite micro-brewery in Israel. This is an excellent stout, I thoroughly enjoyed a bottle of this and I don’t normally prefer stouts. Pours a very thick black color with faint ruby accents, with a long lasting dark tan head. Aroma is fresh coffee bean and roasted malt. The taste is superior, a clean roasted malt base with a sweet chocolate-rather than dark chocolate- flavor, along with light coffee bean notes and a little bit of licorice. Medium bodied, very smooth and drinkable when i sampled this in Israel, although a bottle i just had at a festival in the US was more spritzy. Finishes with a chocolate bar aftertaste. Very well done, highly recommended. cmacklin (1416) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black with a huge, long lasting, light brown head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate and licorice. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice and dried fruit with a dry finish. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation.

Dickes, klassisches Stout mit einem ordentlichen Kracher an dunkler Schokolade, Kaffee und Röstmalzen zum Schluss. Weiterhin nicht mein Stil, daher schwer, gut zu finden. Dass jedoch was hintersteckt, ist jederzeit zu schmecken. McTapps (6985) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2014
Pours out of the bottle (with many thanks to tomer!) in a deep dark black colour with low creamy head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste of rich malt, roasted barley, leaves, dark berries, torf and chocolate. Earthy finsih. Really nice and wonderful quaffable beer. Enjoyed it.
