GT2 (9102) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Tap at recommendation of the waiter. Big mistake. I reluctantly tried this because every other beer listed on the menu was out, even though Paradiso has paper menus they print daily so apparently four beers ran out a few hours before I go there... The pour is interesting- I think it was meant to be on nitro but there is just no natural head formation coming out of this beer. No lace. Just, flat, deep ruby water. Aroma is really not that much, maybe some roast and coffee, but as it warms and sits there, no one wanted to drink it at the table, Iím getting some diacetyl. Ugh. Taste is watery with cheap hotel coffee, light smoke and ash, maybe bitter licorice. Bleh.

DalzAle (2001) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Tap. Probably my least informative rating ever, but the only thing I can say about this beer is that itís a slightly worse(and more expensive) version of Guiness

Draught @ Hilpeš hauki, Helsinki. Almost black with a dark reddish-brown hue when viewed against light source, and with a creamy, tan head. Aroma of liqurice, chocolate and some coffee. Flavour of roasted malts with similar impressions as in the aroma. Dry, hoppy bitter finish. Typical dry stout.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap, Temple Bar. Has the appearance of a dark lager, with a reddish tint and a thick head. Served too cold, and the aroma doesnít come off. Mild aroma is subtle malt. Itís very smooth with lingering toasty finish and honey notes. Not the best Porterhouse stout but still good.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark brown close to opaque but with a vague orange hue and a creamy beige head. Sweetish hard roasted malt in the nose and a little dried dark fruit. Medium body, again hard roasted malt and dark fruit with a lightly smoky whiff. Ends dryish but not overly hoppy. A solid light Porter. 280211
