Finwe (429) - Grankulla, - DEC 31, 2012
500ml bottle from Alko. Pours black with a tan head. Roasted aroma of liquorice, coffee and chocolate. The flavour is quite the same. Soft palate. Very good, if not exquisite, stout.

Hyvin tumma, käytännössä musta olut kohtalaisen runsaalla, mutta aika nopeasti häviävällä beigellä vaahdolla, jota jää lopulta pieni kerros oluen pinnalle. Tuoksu makean maltainen ja paahteinen, kuitenkin kokonaisuutena kohtalaisen kevyt tuoksu. Varsin mainiossa maussa löydettävissä paahteisuutta, kahvia ja kivasti suolaista lakritsaisuutta. Pehmeä ja keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Kiva ja erinomaisen toimiva, hieman porterin suuntaan vivahtava stout.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2016
500ml new entry sampled at BierHandlung. Smooth hazelnut cream pour, beige cap. Aroma of inviting malt caramel spread, some coffee. Smooth thinner yet still textured mouthfeel for the abv, helping alll sweet caramels and roast (coffee, milk chocolate) into pleasant some power. Hints of lactose and hazelnut.

minihame2 (451) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Black body, small, bubbly tan head. Very mild aroma, I only get a bit of malts and a faint coffee aroma in the background. Pretty good flavour, roasty malts, dark chocolate, with slightly bitter hoppiness. Silky smooth moutfeel, low but tingly carbonation but not very rich bodied. Decent stout with lots of roasted flavours which I like.

Fules (725) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, koromfekete szín. Kifejezetten fekete csokis illat, bár kicsit erőtlen. Édeskés, fekete csokis ízvilág, enyhe pörkölt malátás alapon, de a háttérben a komló is elővillan egy pillanatra. Utóíze édeskés, fekete csokis. Nagyon finom, de egyetlen százalékkal kevesebb alkohol kellene bele.

Aus der Flasche getrunken. Schwarz wie die Nacht. Mächtiger Malzkörper mit einer leichten Alkoholnote und Nachtrunk nach etwas Lakritze.
