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 doesn’t come off. Mild aroma is subtle malt. It’s very smooth with lingering toasty finish and honey notes. Not the best Porterhouse stout but still good.

Hermod (4043) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2011
Tap @Kaunis Kampela. Poured dark brown with a creamy looking head. Wonderful coffee aroma and roasted malt. Flavor is coffee and chocolate, almost burnt malt. Finish is somewhat dry. Thin, but quite enjoyable.

gunnar (6339) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a huge frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some dark chocolate as well. Taste is strong of robust roasted malts, coffee and some dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Medium sticky and smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

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

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Glossy pitch pour- detectably ruby at the edges, with an attractive, dimpled grey-tan collar. Nose is a dribble-maker; Nutella on burnt (not inedible) toast, streaks of blackcurrant jam deep down, a glossy black carapace of waxed carbon and carob draped with Young’s-like Cadbury’s lushness. Fuck, I’m having a bit of a rave about this, and it probably isn’t even very good. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken delivery of a box of treats, which this is; fag ash on toast, burnt pistachios, the faint grittiness of Galena wrapped up in a soft, slightly lactic chocolate sweetness. Slick and full-bodied. Tastes and feels like Gwince still does in some of the pubs in Dublin (really). Impressive- I dare say highly sessionable, conversational stuff. Could drink this until it came out of my eyes. Sometimes 330ml of plain’s your only man.

JaBier (5454) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottle brought back by a friend. Pours a clear reddish brown with a medium beige head. One of the best smelling beers I’ve experienced. Like chocolate milk and a bit of roasty coffee. Flavor is roasted malt and ashy grain with a bit of chocolate before a creamy and bitter finish.

esox (1177) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Draught. Dark brown colour, rich and creamy head. Nice, bell balanced aroma of dry and moderately roasted malts, a hint of dried fruits and resins of hops. Dry and slightly sour-roasty taste, a hint of coffee in the finish. Balanced mouthfeel is enjoyably dry and soft.
