Saeglopur (953) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle shared by Cuso at Bratislava Slovak-Austrian RB Tasting, thanks!
Black body, with a massive, stable, frothy, rocky, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa, slight ash, some dark fruits.
Taste follows this, with some more liquorice.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, with coffee, liquorice, some cocoa.

Nice one. A typical, straight Stout, full roasty, but also quite easy to drink. Nothing outstanding, but quite pleasant.

mariovanni (3) - ITALY - APR 12, 2015 does not count
Colore marrone scuro con lievi riflessi ramati. Cappello di schiuma abbastanza fine, beige, abbastanza persistente. Al naso torrefatto, caffe’ e un deciso fruttato a stemperare i malti tostati. In bocca un po’ sgraziata, non particolarmente morbida, con note di caffe e lieve cioccolato. Finale secco e decisamente amaro. Lotto 2014120, bottiglia da 33 cl.

330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. Pours a black color forming a beautiful creamy and very soapy head. Excellent retention and tons of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass. Strong notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee beans and flowery hops in the nose. Taste follows the nose: Strong notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee. Some fruity phenols. Taste is dry and bitter with a persistent hops bitterness finish. Medium body. Smooth. Good carbonation. Roasted and grassy persistent aftertaste. Good drinkability. Great hops profile. Excellent dry Stout.
