Swaroga (1469) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
Good looking stout with a refreshing aroma comparable to pale ale with some chocolate in it. The taste is watery with notes of nuts and chocolate. Bread and flowers too. Nothing to be excited for.

Sampled on tap. Black color, creamy brownish nitro head with cascade. Aroma classic stout with burnt malts, but surprisingly a nice hops bite. Taste balanced. Medium bodied, no carbonation, dry finish. Very nice.

@Malts Attack. Encore un beau stout dans la tradition caractérisé par sa légèreté et son caractère lactée. Le nez assez doux offre de belles effluves lactées d’avoine, de malts chocolats, une pointe d’aigreur, un houblon fleuri assez discret. La bouche forte des apports de l’avoine, est fort grasse, légèrement sirupeuse, accompagnée de saveurs chocolatées des malts torréfiés qui laissent un grain sur la langue. Je note aussi en arrière goût, des saveurs de malts grillés qui se terminent sur une petite aigreur. Sensation de café au lait. Sympa!

Goût très léger pour un stout. un peu aqueuse .Arrière goût plus prononcé et typique du stout. Bière légère dans l’ensemble

HourGlass13 (131) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a slight red tint. Nice lasting tan head. Looks nice in the glass. Aroma is dark fruit, chocolate, caramel and some roast. Taste is very smooth, roast, dried fruits, raisin and fig, and a hint of chocolate. Full body, yet smooth and creamy. Excellent stout.
