Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - APR 18, 2015
One of the new Japanese craft brews, a smoked stout with thick and creamy, light beige head and opaque black robe. Aroma of smoked herring, bitter chocolate, mocha ice cream, wet leather, bacon, charcoal, bayleaf, cold coffee, some vanilla, salmiac, cappuccino, toasted bread, candied figs, dried thyme, some vanilla, hints of soy sauce and wood glue. Taste of candied fruits without the typical sweetness; soft carbo, smooth and lean, perhaps somewhat thin body; very malty all the way through, caramelly and nutty tones, roasted bitterness (coffee!) in the end but in a very courtious, elegant kind of way, not biting or overpowering at all; somewhat metallic as well; smoky accent, clearly present in the nose, returns in an equally soft and gentle way retronasally. Vague spiciness of bayleaf and nutmeg adds some complexity, salmiac is there but also in a gentle, subdued way; finishes a bit smokey, gently hoppy and bitter, no alcohol is perceivable. Considering this country has no ’real’ beer tradition and is establishing its own identity in the craft beer world nowadays, this is far from bad; it is completely correctly brewed, no flaws or off-flavours here, but the aroma promises a bit more than the taste can deliver. Could do with a bit more personality. Still okay though, enjoyed it.

Kauge (1580) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2015
Dark brown colour; light beige head with good retention and lacing. Sweet chocolaty aroma, lots of sourness which alternates between black rye bread and red berries, also leather. The roastiness is not as pronounced as I’d have expected. Tastes more roasty than the nose might indicate, sourish of those same red berries and perhaps less black bread. Faint smoky notes. Cold coffee and coffee beans. Kind of ashy dry on the palate. Carbonation very thin but rather active, body on lighter side of medium. This is nice!

olio (9276) - 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.
