On tap @Bryggeri Helsinki. Pitch black with beige foam that sticks to the glass. Classic Irish style stout. Malty and dry, but still delightfully light in strength.

Marstonlad (437) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Pours black with a medium-sized, quickly fading head that leaves some lacing. The aroma has strong roasty maltiness with espresso, dark bread, licorice and chocolate – rich and pretty varied. Taste is dry, roasty and rich in dark malty elements such as coffee, licorice and bread. The palate is expectedly too light-bodied for a stout – one can only think how good this would be if stronger – but sufficiently smooth with a creamy texture. Decent as it is but hopefully Bryggeri Helsinki brews also a stronger stout one day.

Beerhammaren (1101) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2014
.33l bottle from Lutakko Supermarket Pours black with medium, big bubbled tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark malts, syrup notes, caramel notes and hint of vanilla. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some hops in the end. A bit flat and watery though.

tlind2 (1140) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Black color, tan head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee. Smooth, roasted flavor. Dry espresso finish. Medium-light body, medium-light carbonation. Decent for the ABV, but could use more body.

Kauge (182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 7, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 330 ml bottle from K-supermarket at Kamppi, Helsinki (€ 3,89) in August 2014. Pours a deep brown / near pitch black with a thin tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing. Nose is oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips. Creamy, nutty. Grassy, earthy, dusty... Taste is a bit chocolaty, but not at all sweet; malty, grainy, and even hoppy. Smooth, soft and velvety mouthfeel, but unfortunately too watery on the palate. Dry, grainy finish. Good but kind of forgettable.

tiong (3819) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2014
330ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello

Pours dark brown, almost black with a bubbly head. Aroma of cocoa, oatmeal, roasted malts, hay and grass. Taste is smooth, watery and mildly roasty with some hints of cocoa and oatmeal. Finish is watery, dry and slightly roasty with mild cocoa and oatmeal notes. Okay, quite easygoing stout.

fantti (712) - FINLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Kaatuu snifteriin sysimustana ja noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla, joka kuitenkin pysyy suht hyvin. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on lakritsisuus, joka on yllättävänkin täyteläistä. Kahvi ja paahde työntyvät taustalta mukaan monipuolistaen tuoksua. Maussa jatkuu vahva lakritsi, lähes salmiakki, mutta nyt kahvi on hieman vahvempana mukana. Paahde on taka-alalla. Suutuntuma on melko kuiva ja yllättävänkin täyteläinen, hiilihappoja ei ole paljoa ja humalointikin on mietoa. Hyvä maitokauppastout, jossa lakritsi pääosassa. Omalla tavallaan kevyt, mutta samalla täyteläinen.

jmgreenuk (4617) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle at the Brewpub. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin light tan head and some broken lace. The aroma is creamy caramel malt, coffee. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a smooth malt hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A very good stout indeed. Loved the hoppy notes in the palate which gives it something else that you don’t get from the mass producers.
