baggio (333) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle@Brew on Quay. Apperance: Dark brown with a huge creamy head. Aroma: Chocolate, Caramel, Hint of coffee, Roasted malts. Taste: Caramel, Roasted malts, Hint of coffee, Hint of oak, Chocolate. Palate: Creamy and balanced but a rather thin body. Could use more of everything. A very drinkable stout that lacks a bit of everything. Esp i’d like to see a fuller body and some more hops. Nice try!

Mattburns (114) - USA - AUG 20, 2010
Interesting stout. Really dominated by citrus and grassy hop flavors which I found a surprise. A little toasting and nuts as well. Maybe the hoppy flavors stood out because I wasn’t expecting them. A dark body and a aggressive head. Heaps of carb too which I didn’t enjoy. Still, a good beer which I could have again no worries.
