Some cocoa and coffee in the aroma. The taste leaves almost nothing behind. An ok stout. Overall: 12/20.

3.5
Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle from Vinbudin in Reykjanesbaer (BB Oct 2015). Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, coffee, bitter chocolate, Oreo cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. All righty, now we’re talking...this is quite solid and very drinkable. Energetic aroma that’s got a little more malt depth than your basic stout. Good finishing bitterness and enough malt sugars leftover to provide a pretty rich drinking experience for its size. Good stuff.

3.3
3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle dated October 2013. Dark brown body is more like a brown porter or brown ale than a stout. Roasted barley, dark chocolate and starchy malt-forward aroma with notes of fish scales and accents of black patent char that show through when it opens a bit. Medium-light body, nicely dry, some starch / husk character but it’s minor. Not coffee like but certainly focusing on roasted barley. Not complex or layered but well-executed and respectable and definitely drinkable in quantity if I’m in the right mood.

3.4
bax (1311) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
(bottle 15/06-2013) low brown head, dark almost black color, light roasted aroma, long roasted taste.
