COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
”Bryggmästare Johan Spendrup har landat i en kolsvart brygd som är något torrare och dessutom lite hårdare rostad än världsstjärnan Guiness. Pricken över i är ett litet stänk av rökmalt som faktiskt lyfter Wisby Stout till en nivå över sin berömda förebild. Efter ett par Guiness är man ganska nöjd efter två Wisby Stout vill man ha en till.”

Thomas Berglund - Svenska Dagbladet

Doft
Tydlig maltrostad ton med inslag av kaffe och rostade mandlar.

Smak
Utpräglad karaktär av mörkrostad malt med inslag av choklad samt en lång efterbeska.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2013
A black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of hops and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Pyrmir (3352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2013
On tap. Aroma is smoky with tar notes. Tastes kinda thin, but with very nice smoke aroma embedded in nice malts. Also notes of smoked meat. Too bad the body is so thin

Leighton (10985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Keg at Ardbeg Embassy, Stockholm. Pours black-brown-red with a mocha-tan foam cap. Dark, toasty malt nose, burnt leaves, earth. Light sweet flavor with lots of dry, charred malts, gritty toast, soil, dirt, minerals and burnt grass bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Quite dry and bitter to finish, with rich charcoal, dark earth, dry cocoa, faint coffee grinds. Pretty gritty. Not bad. Nice charred wood notes, dustry cocoa.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
In short: A smooth creamy stout with a light smoky twist. Too airy and not flavourful enough. Boring.
How: Tap at Ölstugan 1892 Tullen, Göteborg Sweden
The look: See-through black-ish body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose is a tiny bit smoky (coal), an old pipe with tobacco, some roast. Taste is soft, creamy velvety malts, light smoky notes, a slice of black cake. Body is a bit too much on the light side. Body is a bit airty with big soft bubbles and a fluffy texture. The beer is very sessionnable but it is mainly because it doesn’t taste much of anything. Not bad, just very bland. My first beer in Sweden, I arrived unprepared and asked the barman to serve me something nice, that’s what I got, some people just don’t realize how lucky they are that it is illegal for me to carry a flame thrower.

Draft @ Arbeg in Stockholm: Black colour, creamy head. Aroma of dark choclate, coffee, and sweet maltynes. Flavor had a creamy mouth feeling of dark choclate, caramelly, some fruitynes was there too. Thin body, medium finish.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Black in color with an off-white head. Roasted malt with a hint of toast and coffee. Really quite bland and somewhat watery. A mild acidity to it, too. The flavor is just bland and roasty. Some coffee and perhaps cocoa powder. Very little sweetness. Very dry and somewhat acidic. A little bit bitter, too.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Draught@Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm (old backlog). Quite much pitch black colour with a slightly off-white head (quite Guinness like looks actually). Aroma is smooth roasted malts, some mild liquorice, ashes and mild caramel. Flavour is roasted malts, liquorice, ashes, some caramel and mild dry wooden notes.

KM (332) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
Tap (served in a tall fine glass). Almost black body, with a nice lasting beige creamy head. Light sweet roasted malty aroma. Well balanced flavour. Dry, light sweet. Coffee and hints of red berries. Not too heavy, easy drinking, with a relatively low ABV. (Glenfiddich Warehouse, Stockholm, 04.07.2011)

mansquito (3388) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Restaurant Pelikan: Pours a black body with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Taste is unfortunately a step down from the aroma. It is mostly weak chocolate and weak roast. The body is too thin, as oft is the case for the dry stout. Quite mediocre.
