33 cl bottle, $1.90 at Binny’s, April 2011. Another lower-alcohol beer I should have finished long ago. Yet when opened, there’s a definite waft of alcohol in the air. Poured into a Nonick glass, it’s black with brown highlights, a slightly foamy stout head. Smell up close has slightly roasty stout grain. Taste has some coffee stout roast up front. Dry mouthfeel which still has nice hop bitterness. At this stage, it seems like more of a sharp German bitterness than English. And I like it just fine. Some dregs at the bottom. A secondary ferment? Maybe that’s why this one has held up very well. I can slightly credit my beer cellar which stays at a nice 50°F when I lean the door in front of it.

Couleur noire, mousse modérément, tenue moyenne. Des arômes de café, noix, tourbes. Texture crêmeuse, une stout plutôt réussie.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - MAY 9, 2016
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016: Birra interessante, fresca, complessa nelle sue sfumature. Al naso aroma di cioccolato al latte e leggero caffè in giunzione ad un pizzico di arancia. Nel bicchiere la birra è molto scura con schiuma cremosa color caffelatte. Nella bevuta prevale la dolcezza inizialmente mentre verso la fine l’amaro si fa strada, anche un po’ troppo. Il corpo è leggero, la carbonazione un po’ spinta, non piacevolissima su questo stile, e nel finale si avverte una leggera astringenza.

Bottle. Lasting small head. Aroma is mostly roasted, but also some coffee. The same in the taste but licorice and nuts also. Onesided...

0.33 l bottle from K-Citymarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Red brown colour, almost no head. Well, this is dry stout. I would have preferred a sweetish stout. Quite OK in its style.
