3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12/IX/2012 33cl bottle from Koelschip (Oostende) @ home - BB: VI/15 (2012-1020)
Very cloudy dark brown beer, lots of beige sediment floating around under a light beige aery head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of dried fruits, alcohol (at 6.5%?), dark caramel, overripe fruits, sugary. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: some (carbon?) sour first, milk chocolate, big sugary, some mocha, little bitter, alcohol, fruity hops. Aftertaste: chocolate, some mocha, dried fruits, little sour. Actually pretty good, but the alcohol is too noticeable for only a 6.5% beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bottle split by 2 @ Rampkrot. Shared cost & picked up @ Bar Oud Postje. Color is dark red fruits brown with a tanned head. Nose is pure dust, light mould & lots of sugar. Taste is very dusty, light mould, sugary, sweet malts, cobwebs, herbs, soy souce, bitter herbs, too much off-flavours going in all directions, ruining it a bit. Touch mineral in the back. Carb. is high.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
The notes of this beer got lost somewhere but 2/3 of the paper got luckily captured on a photo. So this is quite short I’m afraid.
Dark brown colour with a small tan head.
Malt, Belgian style yeast, mild spices and caramel in the aroma.
Mild hops, caramel malt, Belgian yeast, mild chocolate and mild dark fruity sweetness. Not very typical Stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours ruby red color with a medium sized head. Aroma of licorice, caramel malts, some toffee, dark berries, yeast and faint spice notes. Flavour of ripe and somewhat sour fruits, mild chocolate, earthy notes, caramel malts and spices. Some mild vegetables appear on the background. Medium carbonation with mild sourish fruity finish. Sadly some minor off-flavors ruin otherwise decent brew.
