UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Interessantissima stout. Come tutte quelle dello stesso stile, presenta buone note di tostato, di cioccolato e del caramello, ma in questa si nota un deciso affumicato niente male. Purtroppo, più la si beve, più l’affumicato si sente di meno

Vignale (2037) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2013. Kolsvart, högt beige skum. Stora rostade aromer och smaker. Kraftig, söt snarare än kärv men ok balans och funkar till mat med kaffe, choklad, karamell, mörkt bröd och lätt kryddigt. Bra djup i smakerna, lätt beska. Trevlig.

Kauge (102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15) in May 2014. Black with a hint of chestnut brown; consistent darkish beige head. The distinctly vinuous aroma is bursting with strong coffee and sweetness, kind of like a vanilla and chocolate ice cream cocktail mixed with 2 shots of espresso, a handful of dark smoked fruits and some plum liqueur. It’s also a bit earthy, dirty, smoky, more as it warms. Tase is sweet chocolate, well roasted coffee and bitter hops; finish is on the bitter side, dry and ’grainy’. Body’s surprisingly timid, goes well with the rather sharp and sparkly carbonation. Mouthfeel is soft and a bit oily. Overall it’s somewhat more exciting (and way more sweeter) than Celtic but they’re both good after a hard day’s work or dinner. Celtic maybe with dessert, this here instead of one.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Good sized frothy and bubblly light brown head of mixed size bubbles. Light roasty aroma with some milk chocolate and fresh air. Or maybe it is just the Ireland air that I am drinking it in!! Basic roasted irish stout. Toasted grains, a hint of licorice and some molasses. Moderate bitterness at the finish. A decent dry stout.
