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.

Pours deep brown with medium brown head. Nose is yeast. Aromas are roasted malt, light coffee and a alcoholic touch. Low carbonation. Light body. Medium dry bitter finish. Very classic English style stout, a bit watery anyway. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Pivoteka, shared with Hrabren & Jones. Almost black body, off white head. Sweet, roasty aroma, chocolate, slightly lactic perhaps. Light, very, very roasty taste, chocolate, carrots, maybe yeast too, a touch, a teeny tiny touch tart. Good but not impressed, they can do better.

Light aroma of roasting. Low carbonation. Mainly roasted malt and low alcohol. Feels like a porter. Hazelnut aftertaste.

SkillsFactory (176) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2015
Quasi nera con riflessi tonaca di frate, schiuma nocciola non molto persistente. Aroma tostato di caffè e vaniglia, zucchero di canna. Al palato attacca un po' acidula, dopodiché lascia spazio ad un ben presente tostato che ricorda molto la polvere di caffè. Retrolfatto tostato e minimamente erbaceo. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

Mild og behagelig stout, men fin bitterhed. Kan nydes til det meste, og drikkes af de fleste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Noire au collet epais dense et persistant. Aromes tres café L’attaque est plutôt vive et les saveurs torréfiés enveloppent le palais au fur et à mesure pour une finale longue.

Keg at Moeder Lambic. Sat outside on a hot Monday evening. The stout was a nice accompaniment to the cheeseboard. Pours Dark Brown with a cream head. Lots of roasted malt character. Chalk and chocolate powder. Robust. It was a very enjoyable stout.
