3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from my European secret santa 2013. Pours murky brown with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is light sour brown malts, maybe a minor infection? Taste is moderate sweet dark roasted caramel, smooth mouthfeel, nothing wrong with this one, easy dry hops at the finish.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
It stinks and it’s awfully bitter. Zero palate, way too much ABV for Stout. Horribly ugly amount of untasty foam. Awful, bizzare beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown and cloudy. Thin head. Earthy and slightly caramelly aroma. The aroma implies to me a relatively big bitter, but the soft and smooth character is more easy-drinking than that. Caramel notes and a light leafy hop note, decent and strongish.
