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 (1567) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - 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.

Benzai (8234) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized light brown head that leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma of malts, chocolate, lightly hops, lightly a citrus touch and some roastyness. Taste malts, barley, roastyness, slightly liquorice, light to moderately orange peel. Medium body, low to medium carbonation.

mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Dark, malty chocolate, Beige head. Nice lacing. Quite cream tasting although slightly watery. Coriander and orange come through at the finish. Nice but a bit too carbonated for me.

More coffee than choc but a nice bit of both. Bit thin. Tasty though, really glad I got.

Palme (3382) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a small bubbly light beige top. It smells quite nice this. Nice roasted sweetness with brown sugar, coffee, malt and good quality chocolate. Really nice, and it tastes just as nice. Soft gentle and balanced. It has chocolate, coffee, brown caramel and a really balanced bitterness. Ends with a soft burned and roasted finish and aftertaste. One of the better I’ve had from these guys. 09.01.2013

Medium bodied, smooth texture, head thinnish. Tastes of toasted roasted malts, chocolate and liquorice. Interesting and worth getting again.

Flaske på Cardinaltreff jan-13: stout med hvete, koriander og appelsinskall høres forlokkende ut, og selv med sitt beskjedne vitamininnhold 4,9% er dette godsaker. Tydelig og behagelig aroma allerede på 10 cm avstand (kanskje luktesansen ikke er helt ødelagt allikevel). "A smooth creamy stout" fastslår bryggeriet, og det er ikke selvskryt. Rund fruktighet og med balanse som en konkurransedanser. Litt vandig ettersmak sammenliknet med ølen vi hadde før denne, men det er en urettferdig sammenligning.
