Kauge (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2015
Tap at the brewpub. Black with well-retaining creamy head. Very roasty, ashy character with hints of smokiness and even chocolate. Soft and light on the palate with ashy dry finish. Textbook, with what seems to be a tiny hint of hops? Nice.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at Stillwell, Halifax. It pours black with a long-lasting creamy tan head. The nose is soft, ash, sweet roast, coffee, cocoa, creamy, earth, dried fruits and liquorice. The taste is bitter, earthy, charred wood, burnt malt, light pepper, treacle, ash, cocoa, liquorice and coffee grounds with a dryish finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Has decent body, but not much flavour to carry it. Fine.

Bamsen78 (4605) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2015
Draught @ Barvolo, Toronto. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and roast with caramellish notes and hints of fruit. Roasty flavour with notes of coffee and touches of yeast and hints of fruit. Roasty and coffeelike aftertaste. Low carbonation. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Decent.

Tranquillity (1577) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
This is amazing. The body is light but the flavour just amazing, like a kick in the butt! Nice long smokey finish.

Stewiacke (4) - - AUG 29, 2014 does not count
Draft – This stout seems to change keg by keg even if only slightly, usually with a fruity finish from time to time. Not the most interesting beer I've ever had, but not bad at all.

Beer is poured a very dark brown with a difinite blackening around the edges and a creamy dark tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, nuts, and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is nutty malt, with roast and coffee. Quite enjoyable.
