MichaelAwesome (5676) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Dickes, klassisches Stout mit einem ordentlichen Kracher an dunkler Schokolade, Kaffee und Röstmalzen zum Schluss. Weiterhin nicht mein Stil, daher schwer, gut zu finden. Dass jedoch was hintersteckt, ist jederzeit zu schmecken.

33cl bottle, many thanks to DSG. Smooth fresh nose of roasted barley. Hints of woody sourness. Nice sourish beginning, rich and round with dry smooth roasted barley. Very dry, nice sourness in the body. Fresh, smooth, malty smooth, easy to drink but still thick. Great malty-dry sourish aftertaste with a bit of bitterness. Great.
