TET (2635) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
A colablack beer with a medium, dense and beige head. Aroma is strongly roasted, even burned, coffee, some citrusfruity hops, hint of milky sourness and chocolate. Taste is roasted, quite dry, some sourness and black coffee. Taste is simple, but tastefull, roastiness is dominating, but still balanced. Medium bodied, quite smooth to drink. Roasted beer, but still tastefull, balanced and nice.

The only thing this stout has going for it is a decent bouquet of dark chocolate, cola and coffee. Itís downhill from there. Itís got a long aspirin finish with too much fizz on the side. Itís got some substance, but mostly itís too watery for a good stout.

New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($4): Pours a near black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Taste is mostly coffee. Somewhat sweet roasted malts. Body is kind of thin, due to the low alcohol, but the aftertaste still hits pretty hard. Overall, this is just an average stout.
