Foffern (1186) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Has a black colour with a small beige head. Great roasted notes in the aroma along with nuts and some coffee. Nice and light. The taste is also good with roasted tones, nuts, coffee and dark wood. Mouth feel is smooth and silky, and has a light bitterness. A decent and nice well balanced stout.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
Medium brown head. Nearly opaque black body shows clear dark brown at edges, with visible carbonation. Roasty earthy metallic aroma with mealy chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet earthy fruity roasty taste with chocolatey dusty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty dusty aftertaste with wooden chocolatey bready notes. Really nice, and highly drinkable. Full of flavour, too. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

Palme (3269) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a deep dark brown - near black one with a medium sized really bubbly light brown top. On the nose it’s subtle, some faint smoke, roasted malts and fruits. Nothing extraordinary, but not bad in a way not so bad either. It opens up after a while in the glass. It’s lively carbonated and the mouthfeel is quite thin. Soft roasted thin-coffee flavors. Some smoky hints, light sweet with bitter nuts in the finish. Ends with a really mouthdrying biscuit like aftertaste. Easy drinking, and absolutely nice enough for a non-extreme stout. 20.02.2013

50cl bottle from Meny Løren. Pours black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with some smoky notes and hints of caramel, chocolate and dark fruits. Sweet, malty and roasty with balanced bitterness. Lightly bitter aftertaste with roasty notes. Nice and quite flavourful stout.

olio (6114) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2013

Pours dark brown, almost black color with a small steady head. Aroma of ash, mild milky chocolate, some cocoa powder and mild toasty malts. Flavour of roasted malts, chocolate, some faint fruit notes, cocoa, distant lactic notes and mild caramel. Smooth slightly creamy palate, dry bitter finish. Quite pleasant.

Pours dark almost black with ruby on the fringes, bit of lacing. aroma is of sweet dark malts, hints of chocolate, sweet. taste is sweet still, with more than a hint of chocolate and some earthy cereal grains, surprising bitter finish.
