sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de Malt Attacks, BB 31/12/2014. Brune foncée, presque noire, col épais crémeux moka laissant un léger doré au verre. Arôme met de suite l’accent sur les notes douces du lactose. Ces dernières sont ponctuées par le bouquet distinct, mais timide, du cèdre qui apporte des effluves épicées et boisées. Ayant Cigar City comme exemple, le cèdre reste plus mitigé dans son usage. La malt chocolaté et le cacao arrivent à percer en rétro. Palais est profond au niveau malté avec un fini sec au palais attirant l’attention sur l’effet boisé du cèdre. Ce dernier reste présent tout en étant un peu plus discret dans sa complexité. On retrouve un fini épicé lié au boisé typique du cèdre. Le chocolat est également présent avec une petite note amer sur la fin. Le lactose reste également bien présent ajoutant un fini adouci et typique, ce dernier se mariant bien au côté plus sec du cèdre.

Bottle from BeerRitz, Leeds. An inky black beer that pours with a thin tan head. It has a very rich chocolate and cherry flavour, vanilla notes and a sweet and tart fruity, slight roasted chocolate finish.

Lilja (1944) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av choklad, rostad malt, karamell, kakao, trä med toner av torkad frukt. Rund och len, lagom sötma, lätt syrlighet, beska med smak av bitter mörk choklad. Mycket elegant.

Poured from a bottle (Best Before 31 December 2014) into a teku glass. Pours coffee black with a thin but somewhat generous coffee brown head. A lot of the cacao and cypress wood on the nose. Not so much the lactose. Also a good amount of roast malts. Upon warming up a lot of the tropical fruits such as passion fruit. The palate is medium bodied but quite foamy. The attack is very cacao/dark chocolate forward. A slight tartness and sweetness from the milk sugar also becomes very apparent. Just a slight coffee bitterness in the middle but overall, a very easy drinking stout. The darkness of the chocolate is balanced by the brighter flavors of the milk sugar. Tropical fruit flavors also appear a lot more upon warming up. In general, the flavors are not very intense as expected from this style. If you’re looking for something a little more, I’d recommend the Shattered Dream.
