Glouglouburp's rating

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 7, 2012
In short: Roasted vanilla cookies dipped in a cup of black coffee. An amateurish but drinkable stout-ish beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Opaque dark brown body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is moderately roasted with notes of vanilla cookies. Taste is toasted grainy malts, sweet vanilla cookies, a cup of black coffee, an earthy mouth drying finish. Not a bad beer, and this is probably a fun treat for locals because this roasted stout-ish beer really stands out in the Lithuanian beer scene, but for the north-American palette this is just a below average stout attempt. But it doesn’t matter whether I like the beer or not, I’m supposedly adorable with a pint of beer in my hands, I’m like a bigger non-blue version of Drunk Smurf.

TaktikMTL (5700) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Bouteille de 330 ml dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de café. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de café et chocolat avec une pointe de vanille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence de café en arrière goût. (Rating #4218)

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2012 330ml bottle (Gintaro Baras) - gift from Gintaras - thanks! (6:4:7-:4:13=3.4-)
Rich estery aroma, that English ale yeast really shining through compared to the two lagers we had. Big on the roast too. Smooth chocolatey taste, some coffee. Hops relatively subdued, just adding to a little bit of dryness in the finish. Apparently it’s 100% chinook, but they’re used very subtly so it’s hard to tell. Full palate, as you would expect from an oatmeal stout.
Rerate: 330ml bottle - take hom gift from Gintaro in person - thanks!
Glassy black, almost no head. Pleasant roast aroma, touch of butter, perhaps. Lovely smooth sweet roast. Just a touch of bitter in the retronasals too. Less hopping than before. Still a good mellow stout, but perhaps getting a bit aged.

My Bottom Line:
Roasted malts are dominated by vanilla and sweetened coffee in this oily Sweet Stout interpretation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the blackened brown.
-Minty chocolate is also present.
-Carbonation is rather low, making the sweetness appear more important.
-Tart fruitiness gains momentum with every sip.
-This will undoubtedly get better with every batch. This was the first, I believe.

Bottle at the brewpub.
