Plevna’s Stout has become a true classic: Irish-style dry stout with a creamy head and a round, soft flavour. Recommended to anyone who enjoys a good stout.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2004 Draught at Plevna Brewery Pub
Almost opaque. Steady dark brown head. Alcoholic and hoppy aroma. Taste is hoppy and warming. This is actually "dry stout": not so smooth palate as Guinness has but so dry either.Long bitter hoppy finish plus some sweet tones in aftertaste. (7/5/8/5/16 4.1)
Re-rated, draught @Plevna
Full. Roasted, hoppy, sweet, lots of chocolate and licorice. Rich. (7/5/9/5/18 4.4)

FatPhil (9723) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2008 Draught (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Full malty nose. Beautiful creamy malty bitter and ginger taste. Dark notes of coffee and ginger, but the bitterness is very prominant. A classic well-balanced stout.
rerate: (6-5-8-4-14=3.7)
Not quite so amazing. Sweet smoky bacon taste, fades to yesterday’s coffee grounds. Beautifully mellow finish, very drinkable.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2004
near black, thick and nice brown head with lots of lace. Roasted, coffee-like and smooth nose. Pretty full body. Taste is also roasted and coffee-like with some sweetness. Long coffee-like finish. Definitely one of the best beers from Finland.

Erasmus_ro (1525) - Alabama, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draught at Kaisla. Pours black with some wooden, colaish tinges against the light and a large, thick, foamy, milk chocolate-colored head. Beautiful. Aroma is strongly of piney hops with some roasted malts and coffee underneath. The pour is very cold and as the beer warms up, the coffee and espresso tones become stronger while the pine lessens. One can even detect some bitter chocolate in there. Taste is very piney as well though the coffee and espresso flavors are very strong as well. Again, as the beer warms up, the hops recede and roasted malts and espresso become stronger and dark chocolate shows up with his buddy, liquorice. Palate is full and sticky.

Gedronken van het vat in Brouwerij. Bier met romige schuim en volle smaak. Een aanrader voor de Stout-liefhebbers.

Marstonlad (490) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Tap at Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours black with a little white head. Aroma is full of strong roasty maltiness, chocolate and some coffee. Taste is dryish, very roasty and very malty; coffee, chocolate and a little licorice combine in a rich, varied mix. The finish displays hoppy notes and medium bitterness. The palate is medium to full bodied and smooth, the carbonation moderate. This is probably the best Finnish stout I have had and one of my favourite beers. The taste contains all the best characteristics a stout can have: it is balanced, full bodied and rich in both malts and hops.

Suunmyötäinen Stout. Jukan kanssa plevnassa vedettiin pyttipannut ja kävin puheenjohtajavaaleissa.
