Kauge (760) - 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.

Warning!. incredibly inconsistent beer. A good bottle - great chocolate/vanilla aroma with a full bodied Irish stout flavour with again a slight hint of chocolate , with lovely smooth palate and dry coffee finish.... A bad bottle - don’t even feckin talk to me. This rating is judged on a good batch.

0,5l Flasche. Schwarzes Bier mit hellbrauner Schaumkrone. Angenehmer Duft nach Röstaromen. Schmeckt auch so; ebenfalls nach Kaffee, Vanille und leicht schokoladig; ausgewogen lecker.

MikaLukanainen (175) - POLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Pours deep dark with a nice and long lasting head. Not too intense aroma of coffee with milk (the only way a man who doesn’t drink coffee at all can describe it) with some roasted notes and chocolate. The taste follows the aroma, though the body is rather thin. Sweet at first the beer turns slighty sour and the finish is coffee bitter. Overally, quite good stout beer but nothing extraordinary.
