TET (1867) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
An almost black beer wit a medium and nicely brown head. The aroma is roasted, chocolate, some liquirice and coffee. Taste has strong black coffee and roastiness, some sweetness of chocolate and fresh herbs in the end. Almost medium bodied, low carbonation. Despites of low abv. there are lots of flavours and palate isn’t too light. Good beer.

Tap (St. Urho’s Porter & Stout Days 2015)
ice milky coffe aroma, but quite gentle. Soft palate, carbonation low for forced beer. Roast tiptop, that’s nice to have on the tongue. The finish is a little dry in burntness, but some of that is hop bitterness too. Perhaps just a little too drying. But a pretty solid stout, liked it, and it’s quaffability.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, lactic sweetness, coffee, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, burnt and bitter. A tasty thin stout.

Keg @ St Urho’s pub, portteri - ja stout päivät 2015. Black colored, thin brown head. Roasted malty, milky sweetness, coffee notes. Thin bodied, but quite flavorful. milk coffee, some chocolate notes I kind of like the milk sugar thing in this beer at least.

Beerheart65 (1069) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Dark brown/black, huge creamy light brown head. Ash, coffee, licorice, dry. Light to medium body, light feel, soft carbonation, dry, milk chocolate. Simple but I liked it. Sometimes result is more than the sum of its parts as is the case here. For Some reason this works surprisingly well.

laiti (6261) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 08/2015
Aroma has milk chocolate, some coffee, ash and toffee typical to English ales. Flavour is rather ashy with tobacco, licorice and some coffee too roasted. Feels somewhat watery. Not sure what to think of this; feels somewhat pleasant but also messy and thin.

fedexs (22) - ITALY - OCT 30, 2014
Aroma is coffee with chocolate notes and also foam have coffee aroma. Black beer with nice foam and the taste is coffee persistant. The final is dark chocolate with a little bitter that remain at the palate. Nice stout really drinkable due to its 4%

Mortlach (1053) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 12, 2014
On tap @ Mad for Beer. Nera, non molto densa, schiuma biancastra morbida, mediamente persistente. Al naso leggeri sentori di tostato e cioccolato fondente, bella equilibrata anche se non particolarmente potente. In bocca conferma un ottimo equilibrio, mostrando discreta personalità, pur mantenendo una gran beva, tostato, caffé e cioccolato, una leggera sapidità, si sposano bene senza mai eccedere. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Davvero una ottima birra!
