2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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)

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.
