barnyinbarna (12) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2016
Decent stout, with a sweet, biscuity, syrupy malt aroma. It poured nicely with a standard size head of an attractive light brown colour. The beer itself was black and totally opaque until held up to the light. The lacing on the glass was good, and the head stayed square on the beer until near the end of the glass. At first, it has a bitter toastiness to the flavour, but this yields to a slightly sweet finish afterwards. Also notable was an "oystery" flavour throughout - in fact I imagine it would be a great accompaniment to seafood. In the mouth it had a medium body - quite light for a stout - and was quite dry.

Couleur noire, légère mousse beige. Nez café et chocolat, léger toasté. Gout de café grillé, malt noir avec note légère houblonnée et réglisse. Corps moyen. Fin sur le café moulu, grillé, caramel. Pas mal pour une stout belge

Biroholik (828) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Kolor: Czarny.
Piana : Beżowa. Intensywna. Średnio i drobnopęcherzykowata.
Zapach : Aromat ciemnych słodów. Czekolada i mocna kawa.
Smak: Również mocno kawowy. Kawa łączy się z czekoladą tworząc słodką podstawę. Pojawiają się się również ciemne owoce oraz słodki karmel. Finisz gładki. Goryczka mocna, kawowa.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Super stout! Bardzo gładki i pijalny. Aksamitna tekstura sprawia że z łatwością się sięga po następny łyk. Bardzo dobrze zbalansowny Stout z kawową goryczką.
