3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (Dank an joss!) Pitch black, as usual, stable and lacy small tanned head; moderate leathery and ashy nose with a mineralic touch; moderate tosolid dry bitter-sweet flavour, relatively light bodied; a tinge of brandy in the lingering fruity and roasty finish. Good, no doubt.....

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 Tap at Man in the Moon in Stockholm, Sweden. Poured a deep cola red with a nice tan head. Sheety lace remains. Aroma is burnt cherries, sweet abbey dubbel notes like chocolate, spicy yeast, must, cherries. Taste is bitter, floral, lemon, chalky yeast, burnt cherry, sweet syrup, roast. Palate is astringent but still creamy. Would do well as Abbey Dubbel actually versus Foreign Stout.
250mL thanks to anders37. Deeper sepia pour. Red, thick head. Nose is quite lactic like a milk stout with coffee cake, frosting, soy, sweet run soaked cherries, fermenting fruit cake. Taste is metallic, fairly watery, with gritty bitterness. Decent. Like a foreign stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle, 7,0% ABV. Pours almost pitch black, a slight brownish tinge at the edge, and a thick brown head. Very malty nose, heavy roast, loads of dark chocolate, ground coffee, hints of wood (even though this beer’s never been anywhere near a wooden barrel), Finnish ’memma’, soy. Off-dry, full bodied, creamy, balanced bitterness. Very rich, very malty, heavy roast, chocolate, coffee beans, vanilla (?), faintly spicy/hoppy. Long, roasted, fruity finish, although lacks a little bit in complexity. (2010-12-12)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
You have to love when you take the bartenders suggestion and two locals comment how good it is. Bottle into a snifter. Pours black a medium tan head, really nice and flavorful in both aroma and taste. This is a perfect stout inbetween a us stout and English stout, almost a stout sessional. Easy to drink, semi light feel but tons of flavor.
