Erzengel (5079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
Nose of very ripe dry fruit. The beer starts smooth and sourish-fresh. Roast, bitterness, dark roasted grains. Sticky, way stickier than 5.5%. Round, ripe dry fruit! And very dry. Smooth beer, round, great. A bit bitter-roasted in the end.

PotjeBier (1940) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Notes from 2012. From bottle. Very dark color, but not quite black or opaque. Beige head - bottom layer is dense, top is uneven with bigger bubbles. Aroma’s: malty sweet, dark malts, roasted, light drop/zoethout (licorice), aniseed. Also light coffee retronasal. Flavor is roasted, light sweet, moderate bitter. Medium bodied, not bad for 5.5%. Long finish, droppig, moderate to full bitter, a little ash. Very nice!

bkurtz (955) - PERU - MAY 4, 2015
Draft - Pours very dark with a head like whipped cream, beauty. Sweet malt and tobacco aromas. A little aqueous, but well balanced with a slight tart finish.

Reconqvista (322) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 26, 2015
Deep black color beer with a light brown big frothy and lasting head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and toffee and coffee notes. Flavor is bitter with a lot of roasted notes; some final sweetness. Body is medium and the end is dry and sharp. Low carbonation.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 Irish-inspired dry stout with creamy, dense, yellow beige, sticky head and dark burgundy colour, transparent and clearly not as black as usual in this style but still pretty, cristal clear. Pretty straightforward aroma of espresso and black coffee grounds, bitter chocolate, caramel, bayleaf and very faint cloves, toasted bread, subtle iron touch but not disturbing, cookies, raisins and a weak hint of cooked vegetables. Soft and fluffy mouthfeel with subdued sweetishness, hint of candi syrup and raisins, bit metallic, creamy but lacking a bit in body; caramelly malts dominate the middle phase, roasted bitterness comes up in the end, drying, with a slight sourish accent as well as herbal hop bitterness, but the caramelly malt sweetness also persists. In all: okay for the style, nothing out of the ordinary here, but delivering what it promises and in that sense simply enjoyable.

Batavi (97) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn bierglas. Diep donkerbruine kleur tegen zwart, wel helder met volle beige schuimkraag die snel terugzakt. Geuren van gebrande mout en koffie. De smaak is onmiskenbaar een Stout, gebrande mout, espressokoffie, pure chocolade, ook wat laurier en drop. Krachtig bier met een fijn aroma en volle smaak, ondanks het vrij lichte alcoholpercentage van 5,5%. De afdronk is droog met een aangename en lange bitterheid.

suurjuust (1618) - ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Brown beer, small tan head. Nose is malts, caramel, coffee hints, some roast. Flavor is roast, dry notes, malt, caramel and more mild coffee. Finishes dry and with grainy sour notes. Bit bland, but very drinkable.
