Fin (8699) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from Thistledown Farm campsite farmshop. Consumed at home, Sunday 20th September 2015. Pours dark brown, a safe easy going stout , a little thin and perhaps even a touch watery, but that said it still tastes fine with all the usual stout attributes shining through. I am getting some cucumber, however that is likely to be from the Fattoush salad that I have been making. Malty with a little caramel and a little sweet edge, I am being unfair this isn’t a bad stout at all. A6 A4 T7 P2 Ov13 3.2

TBone (14782) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle 500ml (from K-Supermarket City)
Dark brown color, mostly vanishing brownish head. Aroma has ash, coffee and toasted malts. Light bodied, even watery palate. Coffeish, dry flavor. Hints of coffee beans & vegetables. Uninspiring light stout.

rosenbergh (9144) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2015
500 ml bottle. BBE Apr/16. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Mild hops, malt and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same. Boring. Not my kind of stout.

panzerwolf (223) - FINLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Pours very dark brown. Taste has chocolate, malts, coffee, a little bit toffee. Despite all these things, it does end up being a bit on the watery side, not a very strong taste. Ok to drink, anyway, mostly due to the slight taste of coffee.

FatPhil (11818) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2015
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Nice nearly black, ruby glints. Nice chocolatey aroma, some esters that remind me of orange because of the chocolatey backdrop. Fairly watery palate, a little flat and dead. Pleasantly roasty body, less eplicitly chocolatey. Pleasant estery retronasals, I like that in a stout. Finish is gently bitter and dry, a little like dry autumnal leaves. A bit cocoaey in the late finish. Good stout. With a better palate, this would be really damn good, at least 3.5, as the fullness would let me latch onto the flavours more too.

imdownthepub (11929) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Wyevale Garden Centre, Bicester, Oxon. Dark brown with volcanic fizzed tan head that was ultimately short lived. After the trauma of opening this ended just a sweet, fruity, malty beer, quite tired and flat despite the short BBF date. Not great.
