Draught @ Oluthuone Panimomestari
Aroma is rather light with some roastiness and butter. Feels like rich czech lager. Flavour has roasted malt, coffee, butter and hints of vegetables. Feels like bohemian pils and not like dry stout at all.

While drinking this last night on draft at the Villi Waino pub I thought it might be a bit spoiled, but now I see it’s described as an Irish stout, so maybe that tart tang was intended. Served with a thin fine tan head and some lace. color was an opaque brown black. Aroma was malt, roast, licorice, medicinal. Flavor is similar but tartness comes out and medicinal character is also forward, plus has some coffee. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and long. Not a session for me.
