A decent enough Stout, nice aroma, good palate. Pours like a typical Stout with beige head. It has more hops than I’d expect from a regular Stout but they are not to over powering. It goes down well but lacks the character to make it stand out on it’s own.

suurjuust (1881) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2015
Black beer, tan head. Pretty nice lacing. Nose is roasty, chocolate hints, soy sauce. Flavor is roasty malt, dark chocolate, soy sauce, hoppy bitterness in the dry finish. Simple, but well balanced.

Good solid stout. Roasted, medium bitter, dry. Nothing to write home about, but nothing wrong with it either.

As a lot of people have already commented, this is a solid beer. All components are well-balanced: roasted malts vs aromatic hop aromas, and a coffee and chocolate sweetness balanced out by a decent bitterness in the finish. I also get cola and some peat-like flavours. Excellent and a good benchmark for the style

Colore nero con schiuma beige persistente. Buon aroma di caffè e malto tostato. Al palato caffè, note poco amare, buon equilibrio e sapori non eccessivi. Media carbonazione. Buona stout.

On tap at Mills River. Can’t believe I haven’t tried this until now. Super solid- would expect nothing less from SN. Chocolate, coffee, roasty, sweet, and not an overly heavy mouthfeel. Actually thought the porter had more depth to it, but will have to try them side by side. Decent, not outstanding.

SkillsFactory (196) - ITALY - JUL 5, 2015
Marrone scurissimo, quasi nera, riflessi caramello, schiuma beige non molto persistente. Aroma di mirtilli rossi, caffè tostato, zucchero caramellato, cioccolato amaro e leggera liquirizia. Al palato un po' acida, prevale il caffè tostato, cioccolato amaro e frutti rossi, leggera nota alcolica, leggermente acquosa. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata.
