Holmen1 (3105) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2013
Flaske, delt på brygga med Willy: svart med skjær av mørkerødt - såvidt at sollyset penetrerer. Fint skum. Førsteinnsttrykket er at her har de sneket inn litt røykmalt, dermed rynker jeg litt på nesen. Noe mørk sjokolade og litt syre trer frem etter hvert, men ikke nok til å dekke over førsteinntrykket. For tynn kropp til denne smaken, og kun 4,2% gjør ikke saken bedre. Vandig avslutning. Et engangskjøp.

RuneStumo (2289) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2013
13.03.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Rimi Karmsundgata, Haugesund. Black colour with off-white head. Aroma of dark malts. Notes of dry bitter chockolate, and maybe some caffee. Very plessant beer with good carbonation and a very soft flavour. Aftertaste is dry bitter and leaves a mouthfeel of dark malts and soft camp fire.

Firstly, for a dry Celtic Stout, this really has to be my favorite. Tasted it back to back first time in NYC on draft and it is absolutely stellar. All of my fellow american stout lovers, please go into this beer realizing that it is, in fact, not an imperial, viscous, mess but a surprisingly light, refreshing, roasty stout with a nice coffee note and an ABV that sets one up to knock them down. I would buy this again and again.

Bottle from my local ICA. Pours dark ruby with a tiny off-white head, Aroma of dark fruits, weak coffee. Taste is more defined than suggested by the weak aroma, light roasted malts and coffee, high carbonated, dry lingering end.
