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.

33 cl systembolaget. En helt vanlig Stout i min mening. Inget som sticker ut men ändå helt ok.

Saeglopur (1334) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 9, 2015
330 ml bottle from my EU Local Swap 3/2015 sender Anatole, thanks!
Dark brown body, with a big, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of coffee, nuts, cocoa, dark bread, dark fruits, some smoke.
Tastes of ash, wood, coffee, dark chocolate, nuts, dark fruits, piney and citric hops.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, smokey, roasty-bitter, with coffee, smoked wood, dark chocolate, some coffee, piney hops.

Very nice. Roasty and smokey, but really easy at the same time. Manifold and balanced, with sweet, bitter and quite a lot of hoppy notes behind the roast and smoke. Great Stout considering the low ABV.
