darkseduction (647) - Zweibrücken, - JAN 26, 2013
Flasche 30cl. Tiefdunkles Bier, kaum durchsichtig aber vermutlich filtriert. Nougatfarbener Schaum. In der Nase Röstaromen, im Antrunk Espresso, Lakritz, Kakao. Relativ bitterer, hopfenlastiger Abgang.

Alengrin (2885) - 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 (79) - 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 (1538) - 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.

ZodiacM (220) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Mooi donkerbruin bier met een cremekleurige kraag. Geuren van gebrand mout, koffie en caramel. Smaken van gebrand mout, caramel, koffie. Een licht bittere smaak met een klein zoetje. Ondanks het lage alcohol-percentage is hij niet zo waterig als de stouts die ik heb geproefd met dit alcohol-percentage. Drinkt lekker weg, maar is geen stout die bijblijft.

TheFoamhead (158) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2015
Immediately when having the first sip, I was irritated by a sour taste that I wouldn’t expect to find in a Stout. And it doesn’t fit the beer… The rest is undoubtable Stout-ish: dark chocolate, a subtle hop-bitterness, a sweet side kick and hints of caramel fudge. The finish is dry hoppy, sticks to your palate and is somehow spicy. A solid beer with an useless sour side taste.

Gurthnar (2618) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle, thanks to MisoW. Aroma sweet, dark, chocolate, milk ch. Clear very dark brown colour. Okay head. Light to moderate astringency from reckless use of roasted malt, at least to my taste. Breached the delicate border of unpleasantness. Other than that classic roasted flavours. Good, but not my favourite.
