Blueshawk (392) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2016
- schwarz-undurchsichtig mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Kaffee, Röstmalz, Lakritz und etwas Toffee - leicht moussierende Kohlensäure - der Antrunk erinnert sofort an einen Espresso - der Körper bleibt durchgängig schlank, ohne ins Wässrige abzugleiten - im Abgang steigt die Hopfenbitternis erstmals etwas vordergründiger ein Fazit: Gehaltvolles und sehr gut ausbalanciertes Stout

Quite thin bodied... creamy, milk chocolate, mild roast, slight coffee... Nice, smooth and balanced. Decent stout.

I got a lot of liquorice on the nose and taste. It’s very distinctive but not something I’d want to drink consistently. Still a good beer that is well worth trying.

Kicsit, kesernyésebb a kelleténél, illetve, akarom mondani a kelletemnél, amúgy kávénak nem alkalmaznám. Roston sült maláta, ami még eszembe ötlik róla.

Demens (262) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 16, 2016
0,5l bottle. Dark brown/black colour with disappearing small beige head. Aroma: Caramel, dark chocolate, with notes of nuts and sweet chedar. Taste: Well balanced sweet, sour and bitter start, than the coffee caracter gets stronger and culminates in a pleasent bitter and a bit dry mouthfeel. Well done. Light/medium body with soft carbonation. Short bitter finish. A very good stout, I liked it.

Villyzzz (91) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle at home pours opaque black with medium beige head. Aroma is malty, roasted and a bit sweet. Taste is almost British ale like, really light for a stout to be honest. Hints of chocolate. Pretty short lasting and easy drinking. Nice beer but a bit disappointing because I can’t really taste the stout in this.
