Cask in Stoke-on-Trent. More of a thin porter style than a stout. Smooth to drink aftertaste does not linger. Ok but nothing special

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle conditioned. Black with a large beige head. Aromas are dry roast malts, lots of earthiness. Flavours are very dry roast malts with coffee and hints of bitter dark chocolate. Some licourice, too. Has a very hoppy bitter finish finish with a dry aftertaste. A proper dry stout.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
[Bottle conditioned] A black beer with a chocolate brown head. The aroma is sour - weird for a stout, more like a Flemmish sour ale. The flavor is also sour like Flemmish sour ale but with notes of chocolate and caramel.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle. Black with bubbly, light brown head. Quite sour, flemish sour ale-like; "it’s wine!". Something has gone wrong here for sure, though, oddly, it manages to be somewhat balanced and drinkable... Or was it just me getting tipsy? Deserves a re-rate. And again; Thanks a lot Jens Ungstrup.

Light roasted coffee aroma. Sweet chocolate, caramel and fruits in start. Nice coffee/roast finish. Medium smooth. Not bad.

Although this is described as a stout, I thought it more like a porter. The mouthfeel seemed a little thin for a stout and there was distinct woody character and some sourness on the finish. There are subtle hints of chocolate ad coffee too. Not bad. Cask (gravity dispense), Ipswich Beer Festival.
