3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours black color with a small, creamy and steady beige head. Aroma of yeast, toasted malts, dark ripe fruits and some sourish dark berries, some subtle barnyard notes also. Flavour of dark malts, earth, yeast, sorish fruits and mild spice notes. Not your typical stout with the barnyardy notes but decent anyways.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu
Aroma is sweetish with roasted notes, fruit candy, some urinal cake and hints of tobacco. Flavour is a bit unusual with hops, some gooseberry bush, urinal cake (maybe even some urea!) and roasted notes. Lactic notes at the end of the glass. A Belgian sour(ish) stout with extra hops. Unusual but good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very stable, dense, nearly solid cream-coloured head, leaving shards of lace over deep dark brown beer with orange reflections. Aromatic hoppy nose, with hops that are clearly anything but English, as suggested by the label. Roasted notes too, evidently. Aromas are seriously hampered by the quasi solidifying head. Bitter, roasted, weak coffee, galls/ink. Not very refined. Hints at roasted malts essentialy retronasal getting also a tad peppery. Maybe medium bodied; velvety head, slightly creamy MF overall. "Bland" might be too harsh, "plain" certainly isn’t. Comparing this to the Lion à Plume stout....
