FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki) Brown nutty aroma, some coffee. Taste is creamy and hints of coffee grounds, but also very brown. A bit dead, no real punch, not enough sharpness to the hops.

Rastacouere (6161) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Clear light orange. Gentle 1cm off-white head. Grainy, sugary, pear-like and cerealic ale with toasted biscuits and fruity nuances. A bit sticky in its finish. Unconvincing low carbonation leaves the stickiness queen while mildly rooty earthiness tries to bring a sense of hopeless balance. Simple for a sweet ale.
