Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Sweet, slightly toasted and caramel malt aroma. Deep amber in color and a lasting, fairly creamy head. Flavor is malty, again faintly toasted and sweet caramel. Very lightly spicy bitterness comes in a bit towards the finish. Palate is a little on the fizzy side, body is light to medium. Drinkable but surely not exciting.

On tap: looks like they were pouring this with a nitro tap by looking at the head. If not, that's a pretty impressive head! Nice color too - a clear, but deep orangy amber. Too bad the appearance was the best part of this beer. Almost no nose. I was getting distinct sulfur tones in the body that were generally unpleasant. Otherwise a light, caramelly malt flavor with little bitterness. Thin body but with a creamy mouth feel.

Tried this in a netherland restaurant called "de brave Hendrik" in Hamburg, really a funny but also bad headache causing evening - I*m still suffering! Nice bricket red color with a little smooth layer of a head. Hoppy nose - nutty taste with some hops - medium lasting bitter aftertaste. Not bad but nothing more than average.

boto (1981) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 Draught: This one poured a clear amber color. It had a tight, white nitro head. Almost solid lacing down the glass. The aroma was lighter, but decent. Somewhat sweet, caramel, floral. The taste is OK. A bit creamy. Fairly neutral on the bitter/sweetness divide. Malts, faint fruits. Hint of roast. Drinkable.

Nice head and color, but there are some unpleasant off-flavors. A bit thin and ordinary.

Time to rate this beer that isn't even available in the US, according to its deScription. Apparently that excludes common supermarkets in Illinois! Anyway, this beer starts with a medium carmel color and large, slightly off white head. Aroma is fairly weak, in this case, and not overly attractive. Flavor is lightly malty and SLIGHTLY bitter with a mild dry finish. This is drinkable, but not anything great, by any stretch of the imagination.

Not bad! Main reason I tried this was it was in the cold section and I hadn't tried it yet. It was good! A nice surprise

Stick with the cream stout. This came off thin with a mild taste. I'm still trying to recall why I bought this beer.
