Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours almost black with a red tinge and a thin tan head. Light roasted malts, chocolate and faint coffee aromas, which are repeated in the flavour, but a bit more forcefully. Whisky peat can be found in the bitter finish. Medium body, but thin for a stout and with some carbonation. Easy drinking, nice.

Jak na stout dobry, jak na piwo od braci Williamsów też dobre, ale dlaczego nie jest bardzo dobre? Smak jak stout palony ale niezbyt mocny, tu oczekiwałem więcej tych nut, piana średnia i raczej mało trwała. Finisz taki jaki oczekiwałem gożki i wytrawny, przez które przebijają się nuty palone i przyprawy typu kolendra. Tak więc finisz zdecydowanie najlepszy był w tym piwie.

Opaque dark brown - black beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light. Mellow dark malt, tangy with a touch of roast. Mild bubblegum ester. Dry finish. Okay.

ThirstyBird (2516) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Pours opaque black/brown with a brown head that falls to a skim. Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, molasses. The taste is roasty and dry, a bit of bitter chocolate. It ends dry, roasty and slightly bitter. The body is medium and the carbonation is active and finely structured - pretty smooth. Overall a decent beer that boast a lot of roast.

Nice penguin looks to it, very black and white. Stouty aroma with fairly stouty smooth flavour. Nice roast barley kick with some sweet to smooth it up, and a good dose of fruit. Actually, this is surprisingly spicy and fruity for a stout-like beer.
