omhper (23430) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2006
[Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Very black with small beige head. Dry with light body and soft mouthfeel. Lightly salty and discretely flavourful. There’s roasty malt and tobacco. The hop rate is fairly low, so the lightly salty finish has less than medium bitterness. An excellently balanced session stout. The antipode to US microbrews.

A BBE Feb 08 bottle - stored cool and dark. Opaque brown stout . Rich without being overly roasty or thick. Sharpish tang to this - the oysters? Dry finish. Not bad but could not drink loads.
