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.

Kauge (97) - 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.

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.

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 (4258) - 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.

Bottled@HBF2014. Black colour, small white head. Aroma is roasted malts, some toasted and nutty notes along with some earthy notes. lavour is toasted malts, some liquorice, mild roast and ashes. Actually this one is more of a porter than a stout. Still quite a pleasant brew though!
