A Scottish stout with a wonderful rich dark colour. A smooth full bodied beer with subtle bitterness giving way to late sweetness and underlying roast barley hints.

Cantabrian (921) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 21, 2013
Not a very nice aroma, staying around the malts, peat and bourbon. Unexpected for a stout. The flavour is much better, with chocolates and vanila, kind of a cremy, slick feel, very benevolent.

500ml bottle from the brewery. Big tan head, body is very dark - near enough black. Nose is coffee and tar. Flavours of coal, toffee, chocolate, berries. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Nothing too complex about this, just a very good stout.

Aroma has British hops, toffee, some licorice and hints of smoke. Flavour has British hops too. Also toffee, somewhat salty licorice, coffee and hints of ash. The roasted notes are nice, the salty and British aromas are not.

TET (2006) - FINLAND - JUL 3, 2013
A colablack colour, a head is medium and beige. The nose of chocolate, balanced roastiness and some bread, also hint of vegetables. Taste is balanced between roastiness and other nuancees, lactose, black coffee and some bitterness in the end. Almost medium bodied, low and small-bubbled carbonation, smooth to drink. Stout with lots of flavours. Balanced and not too burned.

Foffern (1389) - 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.
