# 3302 ersma: die brauerei mag ich, weil sie gerne zutaten verwendet, die nicht dem reinheitsgebot entsprechen, aber stets sehr gut zu den bieren passen. in diesem fall koriander und orangenschalen. tiefschwarz mit mittelviel, eher flüchtigem schaum. der geruch ist röstmalzig mit lakritz, kaffe und gebrannten nüssen. der antrunk ist ebenso röstmalzig mit aromen von kaffee, lakritz und dörrpflaume. die mitte bringt einen schwung hopfen mit, dessen herbe die aromen unterstreicht. der abgang bringt mehr malzigkeit mit, bei deutlicher herbe. noten von kaffe und sehr dezenter fruchtigkeit (die orangenschalen?). koriander schmeck ich nicht wirklich heraus. die flasche ist ansehnlich. fazit: rundes stout mit merkwürdigem namen. probierenswert. 10,12,11,11,12,11 - 10,95 - 9/5

50cl bottle at the Waiting Room, Edinburgh. Pours opaque black with a nice fawn head. The nose has chocolate orange with some nuttiness. The taste confirms this. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly elegant finish. Overall, a tasty beer.

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.
