UHB Rasputin Stout 3.8
On tap @ Erzbierschof Zurich. Almost pitch black with a brownish-beige head. Aroma of coffee and some sweet thing, not sure if chocolate or vanilla, but certainly sweet. Taste is milder than expected; light bitterness after a first sweet touch. Soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a great aftertaste. I knew it, it was Vanilla. Overall pretty nice!

Yellow color with little foam. The taste is real smokey peaty. The taste is a little peaty and plain boring. The aftertaste is okay. Nice experiment but not that great.

UHB Amarillo Blond 2.7
Golden color without special characteristics. Insanely malty smell. The taste is boringly malty without having significant characteristics. Malty aftertaste. Nothing worth trying.
