emandkey (71) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottled. Apprearance: Dark brown/ black color beer with stiff, long lasting creamy brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, plum, notes of raisins. Taste is light sweet in the beging and medium bitter in the end. Body is light to medium, slick texture, soft cabonation. Quite nice beer, but i would like more lasting taste.

austejaph (61) - LITHUANIA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottled. Visible fizz, thick head of the color light brown. Aroma: medium sweet, reminds dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet at first, later there comes the bitterness. Palate feels tickling on the tongue and on the roof of the mouth. Bitter comes from the throat to the roof of the mouth, it is felt for quite long time.

From Hipercor, last units. In Duvel glass. At dinner, with artisan pizza. The stout ive liked most. Im not a fan of the style, but ive enjoyed this one. Soft and easy drinking, without the typical coffee flavors I dislike and tasty and easy drinking

Bottle to snifter. No detailed notes - entering from older tasting. Slightly sweeter than expected for an oyster stout, with some red berry taste coming through.

ElDesmadre (2929) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Roast, chocolate, some metallic notes and a light milky mouthfeel. Light bitter, rather light bodied, toned down. Ok.

Pours black with pleasing tan brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, mild chocolate and coffee and slightly waxy in a nice way. Taste is medium bitter and sweet, nicely balanced. Smooth and easy drinking, a nice stout!

Bottle at the Black horse Pub -- Really good stout, on the sweeter side. Unknown after reading the bottle, if this was actually an Oyster Stout with real oysters.

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Negra, espuma rojiza. Aroma a chocolate, con algo de frutas. Y sabor también, más complejo (tostado, chocolate, fruta roja) de predominio dulce pero con amargor final típico de las stout. Buena de principio a fin. Redonda en boca. Y sobre todo super bebible ya que es muy ligera y en este caso es una virtud.
