MikaLukanainen (115) - 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.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - APR 19, 2015
A really Irish dry stout, from a 50 cl bottle. My first beer from this well-known and very Irish brewery. Opaque black colour under a creamy, lacing, yellow beige, fairly stable head. Very pleasant and attractively perfumed aroma of cocoa, milk chocolate, cappuccino, leather, bayleaf, raisins, walnuts, mocha ice cream and even some sweet honey, candied figs, black coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, some faint cloves, coconut, vanilla and liquorice perhaps and a vague hint of balsamic vinegar for balance; no off-flavours whatsoever, even the dreaded iron effect is nowhere to be seen. Dense taste with some candied sweetness but subduedly so, rather sparkling carbo (perhaps a bit much for this style), subtle sourish touch, supple and smooth mouthfeel but less creamy than expected from the style, a bit minerally, with a big, full dark maltiness in the middle, chocolatey, caramelly and nutty without any of these components dominating; finishes in a slightly ashy, coffee-like roasted bitterness, mouth-filling and lining the root of the tongue and the throat, very ’rounded’ and soft, with a leafy, somewhat spicy hop bitterness adding complexity; retronasal spiciness not unlike cloves and vanilla. In all: a very decent, robust and well-crafted dry stout, with a very inviting aroma; if I’d have to find something to pick on, it would be the carbonation, which is a little bit too high for the style and distracts a bit from the creamy maltiness. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this very much, highly recommendable for ’maltheads’. In terms of style: indeed maybe a bit sweet for a dry stout, so I can go along with the classification as a plain ’stout’ without further specification.

Bottle @ Bull & Castle. Black and beautiful with yummy head. Dark malt dough and dark sugar, raisin and caramel. Soft and easy mouthfeel. Dry and smoky. Not roasty, not sweet. Banana-coffee nuances and a pleasant touch of acidity in the dry finish.

50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Brune foncée, mousse moka. Arôme ŕ une énorme dose de malt grillé et caramel avec ce que je pense ętre un côté lactique aigre mélangé avec du butterscotch. En bouche, une trčs bonne expérience pour une stout qui je trouve se distance de pas mal d’autres qui en Irlande tendent ŕ 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 légčre note aigre / lactique dont je questionne tjrs l’origine, peut ętre la levure?
