Post Borefts Tasting, Tulip Hotel Room 118. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Airy dry palate. Sourish dark malts, sour lactose or something. Little tangy coffee. Light dry finish. Don’t like the off milky flavour here.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at the Room 118 tasting, Tulip Hotel Bodegraven, post BBF 6 day 1 26/09/14 thanks to whomever shared this one. Light black with a moderate tan covering. Nose is earthy, roast malt, light smoked. Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, spice, touch of lactics, leather. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so - doesn’t do the ABV justice.

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2014
(Tap at De Prael Proeflokaal, Amsterdam as Hijs’M oatmeal stout) Very dark brown, opaque, with a ring head on top. Roasted and maple aroma, with a bit of dark chocolate. Some maple in the mouth also, along with dark bread.
Fairly soft in the mouth, and I’d have given this a 4 for palate, but I’d have liked a slightly fuller feel from the oatmeal.
This gets a little sweeter as the glass empties, but it’s still not too sweet at the bottom. Not at all bad.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Grainy roasty cvreamy aroma. Cream, rye bread, some sour milky notes and chocolate cake in the flavor. Easy drinker, sweet, quite likeable.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of fudge, light chocolate, caramel and sweet malt. Flavour I’d moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2016
Sample @ Stadsbrouwhuis, Leiden. Ambrée, brune col beige. Arôme au nez malté, caramel, crystal, carafa avec un rétro pâle, léger côté chocolaté étant accompagné d’effluves de fruits noirs. Palais est malté mettant bien en avant le s8%, pomme caramel, fruité noir, sucre candy et pointe de malt crystal. Le tout est finemetn collant aux lèvres avec une levure laissant penser à une phase belge et un chocolat ayant la belle part de ce stout. Pas forcément retrouvé l’épaisseur de l’avoine.
