3.65/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a chestnut hued mahogany with a pinky of tan head. Average head retention & slightly better lacing

S: Roasty, currants & figs

T: Follows the nose, dryness as well, a little coffee up front. A touch of carob as this warms, more roastyness, more currants & a little bit of figs too, some leafy hops as well. Finishes, roasty, fruity & dry

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, smooths out as this warms

Drinks easy, a nice porter that hides its ABV well

Doopie brought this one out for a random beer night. Apparently it's the best stout in Israel. Cheers man!

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Clear brown pour produces a one finger, medium-thicker looking, creamy, light brown or beige head with great retention. Brown body with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full wisp and a bubbly ring. Slight wisp remains but leaves no real lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Lots of chocolate, milk chocolate, lightly roasted coffee and some cocoa. Good stuff.

TASTE: Lightly roasted up front with lots of milk chocolate all over the swallow. Medium and lingering aftertaste of milk chocolate and a bit of bitter, dark coffee and roasted malts. A bit one dimensional with all the milk chocolate, but it's still rather nice.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. A bit creamy on the palate, goes down a touch prickly and finishes dry. Okay.

OVERALL: I can definitely see why this is the best stout in Israel. Surprisingly good and enjoyable, though it might be a light bit one dimensional. One I was happy to try and would gladly drink again if offered. Thanks again for the brewskies Doops!
