4oz sampler -

The waiter brought this as "just the regular stout". I thought it was funny that he chose those words...regular stout...as a description because it was nowhere near as tasty as the Eclips stout. Not bad, just kinda pedestrian. Aroma of toffee, alcohol, roasted malts and a touch of powdered chocolate. Flavor was strong with the alcohol, chocolate powder, roasted malts and a bit of coffee showing up. This is a kind of beer that can benefit from some age, but they serve it up fresh as a daisy.

Staffan47 (858) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
Inleder en blytung eclipse-provning. (2012 troligen). Bra pys. Fint skum. Vinös, vilket får mig att tro att det minst är en 2012a. Aningen spritig, men då inleder man strax efter frukost. Markerad beska.
