ciocanelu (176) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 11, 2015
Dark brown color, almost black. Head fizzes away quickly. Aroma is quite nice with roasty and caramel notes. Taste is kind of hard to detect at first because of the overly high carbonation. Aftertaste lingers with roasty notes. The medium-light body and high carbonation make it not live up to it’s name. Not smooth at all.

kajser27 (395) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2015
Black colored, moderate strong tan head, decent lasting. Aroma is some caramel, chocolate and mostly roasted malt with a hint of roasted acidity. Taste is low to medium sweet caramel, chocolate, dark chocolate, strong roasted malt, grassy, some roasted malt acidity and a dry bitter chocolate finish. Low to medium bodied and carbonation, a bit watery.

MonsterMagnet (629) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle, thanks Geiserich! Pours black with a thin beige head. Coffee, roast, light ash, plums, bit of red fruit, bread. Light-medium sweet and bitterness, oily, somewhat thin, average carbonation. Not remarkable, but a nice and smooth stout.

Saeglopur (1110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 14, 2015
330 ml bottle from Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Black body, with a big, creamy, dark beige head.
Quite light aroma of roast, cocoa, some coffee, slight ash, dark fruits.
Taste is also a bit light, with cocoa, coffee, chocolate, ash, dark fruits.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes soft, roasty, slightly dry, with coffee, cocoa, slight ash.

Nice. A quite light Stout, that is easy to drink and with a good balance. Overall too light for my taste though, not among the best Stouts from Austria in my opinion.
