Dervock (616) - Emu plains, - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle - pours black with a deep ran head. Hints of smoky chocolate and caramel malt in the nose. Not a lot on the taste, dryness across the palate, again something in there registering as smokey. Nice full mouthfeel.

Swaroga (1761) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Award winning beer but nothing extraordinary. It’s my first beer in this day so my taste buds are sharp still I don’t get much oysters in there. Roasted malts are very delicate still it is quite dark in color with a beautiful brown head. Easy to drink with a chocolate background. Aftertaste is a bit ash. Still it isn’t an intensively flavored beer ; mellow and dull.

Deep dark brown color with a off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Flavor is malty and sweet, slightly bitter. Low carbonation and medium body with a sweet finish.

emandkey (19) - 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 (17) - 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.

beeebon (308) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
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!
