NordicV (1955) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2012
Smakprov på SBWF. Mörkt brun, nästan svart öl med beige gräddigt skum. Doft av kakao, karamell, lätta kaffearomer. Choklad och en bitter nötighet med lätt rostade toner. Välbalanserad och trevlig.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Corked bottle, courtesy of Jan (fonefan), probably brewed in 2005 and 6 years old
Dark brown color, almost black, with medium sized head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, nice, maybe with a shade of oxidisation. The mouthfeel is quite smooth, dry as well; roasted malts flavor, luckily avoiding ashy traits; correct bitterness; it doesn’t seem to be old, it’s fresh indeed. Balanced, dry, roasty Stout.

750ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) BB 2014/10/24, drunk 2011/12/30
6 Sweet treacly aroma, Chris says it’s like a northern English cake.
5 Black black, lovely tight creamy persistent head.
7 Again, a lovely rich treacly taste.
4 Full palate, carbonation moderate. Burntness heavy, but not extreme at all, just a touch hinting towards astringency, but not quite reaching there. Hops pop up in the finish occasionally, but don’t come to the front ever.
14 Improves as it warms, mellows and smoothes.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu - shared with Rosenbergh) The beer poure deep dark brown and cloudy. Its head was light brown and disappeared quickly. Aroma had molasses, sweetness and roastedness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, roastedness, mildly coffee, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. The taste was too mild and it lasted only a very short time. Adding yeast from the bottom of the bottle actually improved the taste.

Warning! Early amateur rating! A thhinish stout. Minerally and sweet with a very dry complex finish full of malt and a subtle smoky note. Very nice.
