COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Profanity Stout is the first in the Williams Bros ’chapeau’ series, in which we celebrate the skills of amateur brewers whose beers we think are exceptoinal and should be made available to a wider audience. With Profanity Stout we doff our caps to Peter and Craig, the ’Balls to the Wall’ brewing duo, who developed this recipe as students on the brewing course at Edinburgh’s Heriot Watt University. The beer is a blend of rich coffee and intensely fruity hop aromas on a base of full velvety malty mouthfeel.

Das Bier hat einen sehr angenehmen Geruch nach Kaffee, Hopfen, Röstaroma. Geschmack dann sehr trocken mit angenehmer Bittere, allerdings leicht medizinischer Nachgeschmack. Erinnert mich ein bisschen ab Campari

Leicht säuerlich-malziges Aroma, dazu Schokolade und Rosinen. Mundgefühl bekömmlich leicht. Leicht alkoholisch. Tolle "Malzblume".

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black body with a small beige head. Not particular strong, but very nice aroma of roasted, dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate and dry fruit. Flavor is sweet and malty, roasted, coffee, chocolate, dry fruit and balanced bitter. Fine body and good in aftertaste. A well-made, not extreme, tasty and complex stout.

33 cl brown bottle, available in a limited range of Vinmonopolet shops, Norway - my beer a gift from Rune, thanks man! Chocolate beige head, coffee body. Coffee and licorice and chocolate malts to the nose. Chocolate, grain, cream, roasted dark malts to the tongue. Round alright to palate. Finish bittersweet, roasted malts, warming chocolate. Overall an easy stout.

Buongiorgio00 (720) - - JAN 10, 2014
Scura e impenetrabile, corpo denso e gusto cioccolatoso, con note leggere di caffé e un guizzo amaro penetrante che si infila astutamente tra il sapore tostato dei malti. Profanatrice di palati a tutti gli effetti.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @home black (almost). Fruity, hoppy nose with some malts as well. Chocolate on the palate, hoppy bitterness and some light coffee.

stefannilssons (1447) - SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Det här var en stout i det märkligaste laget, aromen gav toalettkänsla och smaken var förvånansvärt frisk med svaga toner av malt och choklad. Slutsats; konstig stout, men god öl!

Not too happy about this one. The appearance is to thin for me. The aroma reminds me of a urinal. Okey flavor, coffee notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lite lätt och citrus inslag i aromen, lite mer åt det friska hållet. Men är den inte lite för frisk och lätt för en iimperial stout.
