Countbeer (4908) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Craig: Small tan head changes quick into a thin but closed ashy tan lacing on top of a hazy murky blackish brown colored beer. Smell oak, berries, light coal, light ash, liquorice, some toasted malts. Taste berries, toasted malts, toasted wood, light sour, some grains, hops, soap. Pretty nice mostly berries, malts and hops with a sour touch. In the beginning there was a hint of something like plastic garbage bag taste... But just once, luckily. Aftertaste is thin and just some malts, grass, sour fruity and floral. Low carbo, soft creamy light spicy mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture. Not an imperial stout, more a fruity beer or stout or something, but not bad.

Clear but very dark red-brown beer. Thin tan head. Crispy dry palate. Surprisingly tart. Not getting any oatmeal smoothness. Very lightly smoked malt. Tangy cola. Too tangy for me - was expecting something much smoother.

In bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin light tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate and yeast. A little sour with some lemon and grapefruit. Nice roasted barley and chocolate finish. Mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

Very nice black body with medium, lasting tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Tasted of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Pretty sweet for a stout, except in the finish, which was bitter. No big alcoholic kick despite its strength. Full bodied.
