50 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse, BBE 28.03.2012
Aroma has sweetish, roasted malt and goldings-like hops. Flavour has coffee, caramel and roasted malt. Some chocolate at finish. Good and balanced stout, although the goldings-like flavour disturbs me a bit here.

Lubiere (10439) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate with smooth vinous notes, molasses, dark fruits, almost veering on imperial stout territory. In mouth, a earthy and woody chocolate malt with some nice vinous and woody notes, delicate, peaty and very nice. Bottle from MLCB, via trade with Piscator, about 1.5 years ago. And it is still delish! Thanks Kris.

Bottled@Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku. Black colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, nice coffee as well as some caramelly and toffeeish noetes. Flavour is roasted malts, some caramel, mild smoked and ashy notes. Sadly the flavour didn’t live up to the promise the aroma gave.

TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2011
Bottled (Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku)
Opaque dark brown color, thick brown head. Coffeish, a bit milky aroma, slightly acidic too. Medium-bodied. Coffee, milky notes, ashy toasted malts and kind of acidic notes. Not very balanced, coffee brings too much acidity this otherwise toasted malty stout.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme à une énorme dose de malt grillé et caramel avec ce que je pense être un côté lactique aigre mélangé avec du butterscotch. En bouche, une très bonne expérience pour une stout qui je trouve se distance de pas mal d’autres qui en Irlande tendent à trop se ressembler. Superbes notes de malt grillé, caramel donnant sur le café et butterscotch suivit d’une fine couche d’amertume houblonnée avec comme au nez, une légère note aigre / lactique dont je questionne tjrs l’origine, peut être la levure?

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2011
Very dark brown. Big puffy head. Richly roasty. Light chocolate. Full, rich, but with buttery notes. Too much diacetyl really messes this one up - not what I want in a stout.

black extra stout, coffee, some chocolate, hints of vanilla, hop bitterness in the finish. absolutely delicious complex flavors, some american brewers can take a lesson from this one due to the complex flavors that dont require a double digit abv. extremely enjoyable, what a great unexpected find.
