3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Dark amber body. (Stout?) Sugary butterscotch aroma. I can’t really detect anything else here. Sweet-dryish wild berry and roasty butterscotch taste with papery notes. Light body. Mild, soft, slick body. Dryish fruity caramel aftertaste is very light and short. Nice, and very light and fluffy. Probably not according to the purity law, this. Interesting beer, but definitely not a stout. (0.5l bottle, Maxima, Vilnius.)

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 4 years ago.
The colour is absolutely not stoutish, but is suits the doppelbock: brownish-reddish. The head was high and brown, but short-lasting.
Strong aroma, with a lot of hops, smells like pale lager.
Quite full in taste, with some caramelly nottes, a litte sweetness and strong alcohol.
Calling it a stout is utterly bizarre, but I’m rating it as a doppelbock.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle @ Poirotti, Helsinki. Reddish copper color, off-white head. Sweet flavor with chocolate and a rather alcohol-filled finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Wouldn’t really call this a "stout(s)". Too sweet to drink a second time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting that this beer is called a stout. It was bit confusing trying to figure out how they got stout out of this deep amber, boozy caramel banana bread beer, but whatever. A bit warming, but flavors were a bit underwhelming from what they could have been. Still fairly decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Over ripe bananas unsuccessfully try to hide behind raisins, heady winey malts and figs. Much more mild then the nose lets on. Toffee, figs, hints of earthy hops, more raisons, grape skins, and white bread. Finishes very clean with just a hint of dough.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 500ml bottle - Shared by Mirjukka - thanks!
Quite sweet sour fruity aroma. Very like Kauno Porteris. Caramelly. Drier than their Porteris, but still sweet and bocky. Enjoyed, would have again definitely.
Rerate: Tap (Kauno Alus Brewery Tap Bar, Kaunas)
Sweet, slightly sticky. Drinkable. And by that I mean very easy to drink. Covers 8% well. Toffee quite prominant this time. Smoother and cleaner than the bottle, from my memory.
