beer-yum (1334) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 30, 2015
Restrained aroma in a black pour. Unobjectionable taste is nothing to write home about - but no foul either.

SkillsFactory (549) - ITALY - NOV 13, 2015
Marrone scuro, praticamente nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma tra l'ocra ed il nocciola copiosa, irregolare di persistenza media, medio-bassa. Aroma di caramello, caffè tostato, leggerissimo cacao ed erbaceo, leggera vaniglia, lieve nota acida che ricorda i fondi di caffè. Al palato è sempre il caffè a prevalere, caramello, leggerissima vaniglia; nel finale nota di cioccolato e lieve nota etilica, coda amaricante tostata ed erbacea. Corpo medio, molto carbonata, anche troppo...

75 cl bottle thanks to Reza (non-ratebeer) on November 2, 2015.
BB 06/06/2015.
Very happy out of the bottle, keeps slowly foaming out of the bottle long after we poured the first glasses. Clear dark reddish brown color with some protein flakes and/or yeast flakes in the bottom of the glass (first pour still), settles to a small tan head, no lacing. Sweet, spicy, some light berries, malty, light roasted scent. Malty, bitter, roasted, grainy, pith taste. Bitter, light roasted, mineral aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.

Kauge (1580) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle from Eataly in Rome. BB 16.03.2016. Pours medium brown, appears black in the glass. The head’s thick, cream-coloured, and drops to a film, leaving little lacing. The nose is roasted malts, some bitter chocolate, red berry and black bread sourness. Tastes basically the same. Sweet. Very active, thin carbonation. Dry, roasty finish. Some hop bitterness. One-dimentional and rather simple - I tend not to make much of dryish stouts...
