Pours a deep black with a medium brown head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, cacao with some mild dark fruit notes. Taste is of sweet dark roasted caramel malt, cacao and some espresso notes. Palate is a medium body, slight creamy mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is a flavorful dark roasted caramel and chocolate malt some distant dark fruit and mild liquorice notes ending with a moderate bitter dry roasted malt and espresso flavor. A very nice tasty brew.

Picked this up in Totowa earlier this week, having never drank a beer brewed in Israel before. This looked interesting for so many reasons and once I enjoyed it, I found out why. This turned out to be a great take on the style that wasn't terribly strong or heavy but had just enough body and complexity to hold me from start to finish. This wasn't that dry either, which made it easy to quaff without a glass of water to chase it at the end.

This had a nice dark pour to it with a moderately tan, fully head and some sediment in the bottle, but this was brewed back in July after all. Not a "motor oil" Stout by any means but certainly thick enough to be an Irish Dry Stout, with not a lot of carbonation present in the beer. Enough coffee, baker's chocolate, pumpernickel, and current in the taste, with all of those present in the smell in muted tones. Balanced, creamy, and not that dry, this had a nice mouthfeel to it and only the dark fruit and hint of oatmeal stayed around in the aftertaste. The alcohol was hardly perceptible from start to finish.

While this was not a session beer, I could easily see myself having another one in sitting had I bought more than one bottle. The lacing was somewhat present before sliding down the edges of my pint glass and there wasn't much of any bubbles in the carbonation, until I swished this around in my mouth. If there's such thing as an enjoyable "weaker" Stout, this would be a great example of it. Worth a go for someone who doesn't want to get knocked upside the head while drinking a beer this dark!

Bootled 7/16/2013.

Pours a very dark chestnut brown color that appears black in the glass with a two finger mocha head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with spotty lacing left behind. Much darker than expected, especially the frothy dark beige head. Impressive looking.

Slightly smokey dark malt aroma with a nice balance of roast and sweeter notes. Robust with burnt sugar, oatmeal, toast and espresso bean followed by sweeter, dessert-like coco,ate malt. Subtle earthy hop presence as well.

Medium body with a slight creamy texture but also a bit watery if that makes an sense. Mouthfeel kind of reminds me of nitro. Some dry, roasted bitterness up front but not acrid or unpleasant. Burnt dark malts with hints of bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal and coffee bean followed by subtle resinous hops, lactic cream and lighter malt notes, notably lighter chocolate and caramel sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit off but this beer is well balanced with some nice flavors complimenting each other. This style can be boring but this was pretty complex. I hated the pale ale but this is a good beer from this newish brewery that has me interested in trying more of their offerings.
