3fourths (9054) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Bottle at RBSG, thanks to TimE (I think). Dark brown cody with some caramel light at the edge of the liquid. Juicy gummy flavor, with some cannibus and milk flavors. Lacking any stout characteristics. Very watery, oily and slick. Dirty and gritty in the finish. Not a good beer.

KyotoLefty (9021) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 1, 2008
Bottle from the brewery. Pitch black with a very tall, fine, tan head. Creamy roasted aroma with lots of chocolate, a touch of coffee, nuts, and a touch of sweetness. Quite dry flavor, but very creamy, well burnt, chocolate, more coffee, still a touch of sweetness, and more hops than usual for the style. Very well balanced. Dry, burnt, and sweet, but not too much of any. Dry, hoppy finish. Long-lasting bitterness coming from both. Very interesting and pleasant, characterful dry stout. I really like that tinge of chocolaty sweetness behind a generally dry flavor.

olio (8986) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
33 cl bottle (5.0% abv) @ Timo A. Packaged 06.05.2015.
Pours dark red color with a small head. Soy on the aroma, tar, smoke and malts also, subtle dried fruits. Slight metallic notes on the flavor, dark malts, coffee notes, bread, very subtle wheat, cocoa and some wood. Slick palate, somewhat light feel. Doesn’t feel that old, good.

laiti (7980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Draught @ Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Rated on 05.09.2011
Looks a lot like guinness. Aroma is roasted with hints of peat. Flavour is roasted with peat and some bitter coffee. Real-ale -like palate is a bit watery. A decent Guinness clone but the bitter coffee disturbs me a bit.

Svesse (7710) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2014
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, black rye bread, coffee, liquorice, hints of dark fruit and a touch of soy sauce. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, black rye bread, dried fruit, a touch of orange peel (or chocolate with orange) and a dry finish with a balanced roasted bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Well balanced and tasty dry stout. Nice one.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2012
On tap at Popeyes in Tokyo. Dark purple to black with a modest head; really strangely watery texture, next to no carbonation; light but unconvincing peat and cocoa powder. Dull finish
