Flat stout that is a little too sweet for my taste. Could use some more depth and spices.

0,33 pullo@ Kaunis Kampela. Ruskeaan taittava musta, täysin samea. Tuoksussa paahteisuutta, portviiniä, makeita maltaita ja taateleita. Olut ehkä turhan viileää maisteltavaksi. Maussa kirpeää kirsikkaa, tanniinista punaviiniä ja raakakaakaota.

0,33l bottle @ Kaunis Kampela. Pours very dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, dark fruits and alcohol. Flavor is sweet roasted malts with some milk and fruits with a hoppy and slightly chocolatey finish. Good.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Black Door, 20140906) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had sourness, tarness, lingoberry and burnt malts. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, sweetness, tartness, burnt malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, sweet and bitter. A confusing brew. If the end result was the one that was attempted I’m really annoyed.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is creamy caramel malt. The flavour is medium sweet, light bitter with a chewy sweet creamy malt caramel palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

TrefwoordPunk (808) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle 33 cl, maybe my bottle is a bit old, there is some mud-like dirt inside the cap and to the glass on in inside of the botlle. The beer pours black with a beige head and an aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffe with milk and sugar and toffee. The taste is sweet, a bit watery, with some slight hoppiness in the finish. Nothing special.

On tap at de Prael. Black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts an lactose. Taste is sweet with a sharp sour overtone. Not sure if this is intenser. Roasted malts, lactose, some chocolate and coffee. Bit thin and not do good due to sournish.

Bosskie (398) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Pitch black with a nice foamy head and bubbles. Coffee smell with sourwood and charcoal like in a bbq. Subtle fruitiness with a citric bitter sourness. Fizzy sour watery with subtle touches of sweetness. The fizziness is delicious and has a subtle burnt smokey feel to it. Oily creamy finish.

Extremely good beer from a brewery that I did not know before. The taste of chocolate and caramel are the main. Drank at Arendsnest, Amsterdam.
