Medium roasted malt aroma. Medium tan head, dark brown color. Medium toffee sweet and roasted bitter. Light body but not thin, some nice bitter aftertaste.

MartR (308) - Aespa, ESTONIA - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle. Brewed in Belgium. Builds up a nice creamy tan head. Mild roast flavor and some ashes in the finish. Dry and light palate. Even so watery it becomes distracting at some point. This is quite bland and not the same as I remember it from tap.

labeerinthum (572) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 17, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rimanda a liquirizia, pane nero, orzo tostato e luppolo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello è di schiuma compatta, cremosa e persistente, con bollicine medie. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Il finale è lungo, secco e pulito. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, caffè, frutta secca e liquirizia.

Enteogenisk (158) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Probably one of the lightest stouts I have ever had. At least it doesn’t taste bad.

Gehbe (268) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 4, 2016
Big light brown head, some lacing. Aroma: cream, coffee, milk, dark bread and crust, cooked bread, lactic bacteria. Taste: medium acidity and somewhat lighter bitterness upfront, crisp light bitterness and some acidity on finish. Palate: light/medium body, quite smooth, medium carbonation. Overall roasty and crispy but too much lactic acid.

Turtles (2074) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Near black, big creamy tan head, good lacing. Roasted aroma, leather, chocolate and coffee. Medium carbonated, thin dry mouthfeel. Gentle roasted taste, chalky and dry, cocoa and chocolate. Easy to drink without real depth.
