ogivlado (7174) - 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.

SaintMatty (6734) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
500ml Bottle - Very dark brown with some red tinges and a foamy head. Roasted malt, chocolate orange and a hint of coffee in the aroma. Roasted and zesty taste with orange, chocolate, coffee and roasted malt detected. Interesting and easy to drink.

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2012
500 ml bottle, a gift. ABV is 4.9%. Black colour, large to moderate brown head, nice lacing. The aroma has moderate roasty notes (mild coffee, chocolate and liquorice), also strong fruity and acidic notes (hops, lemons and orange peel), hints of coriander. The aroma seems a bit misplaced, but that might just be due to old habit. Smooth flavour, very pleasant to drink, mild roasty notes. Not much acidity in the flavour, just a hint of orange peel in the background. Moderate hops. Not sure if I could identify the coriander, if I did not know that it should be there. Don’t know if March of the Penguins will be imported to Norway (most other WB beers are, so it is likely that it will) - I would buy again.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, bread, spices and coriander. Very light bitter hoppy finish. Nice beer and I enjoyed it a lot.

MichaelAwesome (6428) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Classy stout with some malt, coffee, dark chocolate and leaves. A really classy piwo which offers a deep body and high drinkability.

Hermod (6331) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2012
50cl bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured almost black with a beige head. Aroma has coffee, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavor very similar, nice roasted ness, oat and coffee coming through quite a lot in the slightly dry finish. Light to medium body.

Idiosynkrasie (6311) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear dark brown with fingerthick, creamy, fading, beige head. Spicy aroma, orange zest, a peppery note on cautious dark malt basis. Taste is dry, a note of roasted malt, some orange in the second half, finish has a tendency to soapiness.

Finn (6281) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2012
Flaske 0,5l spandert av Rune og delt med ham under rateseanse hos ham 20 Sep 12. Egentlig svart men i sterkt lys slipper det en dyp rødfarge igjennom. Svakt farget kremaktig skum som fester seg godt til glasset. God sjokoladearoma. Smaken er sammensatt: Sjokolade & lakris. Antydning til bær i ettersmaken. Bra men uspennende.

BlackHaddock (6220) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
500ml Bottle, best before Dec 2012, poured into a vase shaped ’Old Speckled Hen’ pint glass on 29 Nov 2011. Deep, dark ruby red body, weak, thin wispy covering on top. Smell of chocolate, ground coffee beans and baked shortbread biscuits. I might try this beer hot next time! The taste is very simular to the aromas, with some keen carbonisation to give the sweet malty flavours a spritzy feel in the mouth. Some of the ingrediants listed on the label (Coriander and Orange Zest) I couldn’t find, although it was a lovely tasting beer. Without a doubt a Stout, not a Scottish Ale at all. My enjoyment of this beer was hightened by my football team winning 6-0 as I reviewed it!
