3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
18/08 Draught at the BBF 2011. As I was told, different that their dark beer normally offered in the brewpubs, now we couldn’t find it and it’s not listed anymore on brewer’s website, so it might be replaced by this stout? Anyway, its dark brown body had small head and smelled on caramel and coffee malt with inevitable herbal hops. Flavor was elegant coffee, sourish and dry, complemented a bit with caramel notes. Quite watery, thin bodied. Simple and shorter dry coffee and tobacco finish. A decent stout, unfortunately more body would help a lot to pronounce its fine malt. Thumbs up for the Black Turtle anyway!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BBF 2011. Lots of residual sweetness, which is a signature at this brewery it seems. Decent dose of coffee (turkish style) on nose and in taste. Dry and sweet, bit wattery, but not bad full flavor. Dark fruit, raisins and plums. Wet/fresh tabacco. Pretty ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at BBF 2011. They had released this at the beginning of April (well, 31.3., but close enough) and since there was none at the outlets, we’d hoped that it’d be there on the festival and lo! It was. This poured an opaque very dark brown body with an off white head. Slightly papery nose, some oily maltiness, vague lemon and coffee that’s vague at first and then takes over as it warms. Nice, soft coffee taste, some light bacon/dried meat. Sweetish, not much hop. Not terrific but great for the Serbian standards. None of these "ales", the White Clover ones and the TBT ones are particularly aleish, if there was top fermentation going on, it didn’t left much trace, but some of them, especially these new TBT beers, are way above the local average anyway.
