This stout has a robust flavour with a ful bodied and smooth mouth feel. The roast flavours lead to a dry espresso like finish. A generous addition of fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.

Classica stout, dai sentori tostati e di cioccolato. Si percepisce anche della frutta secca. L’amaro le fa da padrona.

humlelala (1010) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Dublin Airport shop; BBD: May 28th 2015) Pours black with plenty of creamy, tan head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is subtly toasted malt with hints of earthy hops. Oily almost creamy texture, medium body with soft carbonation and a roasted, semi-ascerbic finish. Flavour is mostly toasted malt with some ascerbic touches and a balancing bitterness. Very dry and practically no sweetness. Decent for the ABV but would have liked more taste.

Flaske 0,5 liter, dejlig blid stout, flot mørk/ næsten sort med lys beige skum, duft af ristet malt, ikke så kraftig aroma, god smag af stout (blandt andet lidt lakrids), men lige så god og mild den er (nem at drikke) , gør desværre også at den er lidt kedelig.

Pours black with creamy head. A bit of roasted malt in the aroma. The flavour has plenty of almost burnt malts leading to a coffee-like finish.

Kauge (179) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15) in May 2014. Pours slightly brownish black with a small light beige head. Aroma is an intense mix of roasted coffee beans, smoked plums, very dark chocolate, notes of bitter hops and some cocoa, also a wee bit metallic. Behind all that maybe even tiny hints of black olives and liquorice. Gets more smoky as it warms. Taste is cold espresso and chocolate, rather bitter, acidic, metallic. Body and carbonation is on-the-spot medium, the latter giving it an enjoyable crispness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth. Finish is dry with a lingering aftertaste of coffee and somewhat bitter. Really enjoyable stuff!
