FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2013
355ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) Finnish version at 4.7%
Pours like cola, head only lasts a matter of seconds. Rich sweet puddingy roast aroma - very nice hints of coffee and chocolate. A bit thin and dead in the mouth. None of the fullness I expect off an oatmeal stout. Not a bad taste, but doesn’t match the fun and fullness of the aroma. Decent roast, but a bit ashy, leading to some acidity. Leaves you with a burnt and noble hop tingle, but alas it’s a bit unsatisfying. Drink quickly, as it tastes worse and worse as it warms. I’m getting some metallic tastes now, and it’s quite dirty.
