@Malting Pot. Plutôt un "Dry Stout", selon moi. Copie d’un original mais je préfère l’original.
De visu: c’est une bière noire à la densité moyenne, assez parfumée développant des senteurs caractéristiques du style, la puissance en moins: effluves de malts grillés, de café moulu, de la levure, de la chicorée torréfiée, de grains d’orge rôtis avec une pointe de douceur et un houblon très fleuri. La bouche est très douce: je goûte le , malt caramélisé, la chicorée torréfié, une petite douceur fruitée, le tout assez sec. Ce n’est qu’en arrière goût que reviennent les arômes de café torréfié, d’orge grillé finissant sur une amertume assez tenace gentillement acre et surette à la fois. Les saveurs de cette bière offre une dégustation évolutive: se faisant plus douce avec des arômes exaltés de malt torréfié et grillé plus prégniants sur la longueur. Certainement un tout bon Stout dans la tradition. Mais il lui manque un peu plus de virilité sur les malts à mon goût!

Flaska hamnmästaren - doftar något unket. Mörk och beigt skum. Brända toner och försiktigt.

Dark black but some red hue. Short creamy tan head. light lace. Roasted malts,chocolate, caramel bit of sweetness. Smooth roast,chocolate malts. Rich with an equally balanced sweet bitter. Pine hop character under the roast with more pine in bitter.Bit of citrus tang to it. Sweet and bitter linger. I enjoy this stout way more than average stouts. Great stout.

Muggus69 (1308) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2014
355mL bottle Near black, near opaque beer. Pours a good sized rocky tan head. Punchy aroma packed full of grapefruit, pine & grassy malts, backed by a solid measure of chocolatey, caramelly, nutty malt. Full body with good carbonation, has a slickness to the texture. Palate comes through with more bitter chocolate & roast nutty malts combining with citrus peel, & woody pine hops. Firm bitterness on long finish. Very nice American-style stout
