Tap at CK. Pours a clear, deep ruby to black. Beige mocha bubbles. Nose is thick mocha and coffee. Dense ganache and cocoa. Taste is lighter, sparkling, tangy. Clean and roasty. No malt presence. Mild earth. Palate is a bit weak. Very sessionable. Amazing richness and roast for the low abv. Taste gains oil and black cherry. Palate is richer and clean. Very good. +1 for low abv and huge presence.

A bit brown in color. Smells pretty decent. This is nice. A solid dry stout flavor. Not too heavy. An easy way to start the friday stout beer tasting.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 11, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 15cl sample. Black/brown with medium, tanned head. NOSE : fresh coffee, orange zest; black chocolate, nuts, lactic aromas. SIP : medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth. The beer is moderately sweet with strong flavor of burned malts. It gets dry and bitter. both hops and burned malts mix into a bitter finish. Well hopped, the beer develops metallic and zest like aftertaste together with coffee like dry feeling. OVERALL : Fruity and fresh for a stout, it is easy to drink. I would love to try it on tap.

On Tap at Alewife for my anniversary dinner with the wife. Deep dark chocolate pour. Aroma is full of wet coffee grounds and belgian yeast. A dry stout with a surprising amount of belgian yeast. Really clean. Not overpowering. In fact, mellow flavors overall, but delicious.

Draft at alewife. Pours a dark brownish black with thin lacing. Aroma is wood and earth. Mouthfeel is dry but full with notes of wood, dirt, earth, roast, and bitter chocolate. Great, unique stout.

Poured a very dark brown, almost black. Almost no head. Aroma is quite sweet with roasted malts and some milk chocolate. Some cherries as well. The taste is quite burnt yet a tiny bit watery. Some coffee as well. Aftertaste is slightly astringent with more burnt flavors.

Clear dark ruby brown with a good ring head and splotchy lace. Considering the low abv, this is an exceptional brew - lots of roasted caramel/coffee for openers, with a clean, bitter toasted-malt finish, which is particularly satisfying. Refreshing to enjoy a stout that doesn’t follow the current formula: malt moving to bitter chocolate and/or coffee to finish.
