ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at Drygate Glasgow. Almost black coloured, small brown head, mild roasty nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and cocoa powder with fruity and caramel notes. Touch of licorice in mild bitter finish. Pleasant but pretty ordinary stout.

Kolor: Czarny, całkowicie nieprzejrzysty. Piana: Średnio obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa. Szybko opada do niewielkiej warstewki. Pozostawia ładny lacing. Aromat: Na pierwszym planie paloność, trochę kawy i nutka czekolady. Poza tym ku mojemu zdumieniu rzeczywiście czuć odrobinę skórki pomarańczowej, ale już kolendry nie czuć wcale. Całość uzupełniona jest aromatem ciemnych owoców. Przy dolewaniu z butelki poczułem żelazo, choć wcześniej w aromacie i w smaku go nie wyczułem. Na teście skórnym rzeczywiście wylazło lekkie żelazo. Bardzo złożony aromat. Mimo żelaza w dalszym ciągu bardzo dobry. Smak: Tutaj na pierwszy plan wychodzą nuty ciemnych owoców, kawa i czekolada schowane są z tyłu, a nut pomarańczowych właściwie nie ma. Goryczka jest niska. Piwo jest kwaskowate, wytrawne, średnio pełne. Nie ma efektu wyklejania podniebienia, piwo wbrew opisowi na etykiecie nie jest kremowe. Jest to natomiast bardzo dobry foreign extra stout. Wysycenie: niskie do średniego - odpowiednie dla stylu. Opakowanie: Bardzo ładna stylowa etykieta. Miło, że chwalą się w składzie skórką pomarańczową i kolendrą. Szkoda, że nie podano pełnego składu w zakresie użytych słodów, chmieli i drożdży.

Coriander and orange? What?
Into a snifter at just on cool. Black as midnight, almost still with a thin wafer of suds atop. Nose hints at rich, milk chocolate, roasted coffee bean, sweet soy sauce and a little molasses. Quite mellow, dusty and gritty with a powdery, roasted malt feel and flavour that dominates. Light on in body with minimal effervescence. Quite sweet in the finish. Rich toffee and chocolate with a drawing hint of molasses and aniseed. Not long in the swallow. There is also a touch of smoke and ash amongst the heaving roasted malts. Overall a pleasant Stout, but still confused by the use of coriander and orange. (50cL, BBE 03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
