Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 13, 2003
Typical stout appereance, but the head lasts only few seconds. Malty aroma. The flavour is weak, dominated by a boring roasted matly sweetness, with traces of hazelnuts and almonds. Slightly bitter and smoked finish. Decent stout, but nothing more.

nephirem (540) - CROATIA - JUL 14, 2017
Nitro-can, 0.44l. No funky widget inside. Pours deep ruby with one finger beige head. Thick and long lasting, excellent retention. Pretty good lacing. This one’s a looker. Sweet on the nose, heavily malty with lots of caramel. Medium body, very softly carbonated, almost flat. Texture is creamy but somewhat light. Taste is sweet. Sugary sweet even. Well, sweet stout it is I guess! Anyways, aroma is pretty much similar to nose. Heavily malty, lots of caramel and toffee. Sugar. Loads of sugar. A bit of honey. Syrup. Some extremely faint bitter notes towards the finish. Finish itself is yes, you’ve guessed it - sweet. Overall, sweet and sugary beer. Complete lack of roastiness in this one. If you love your beers sweet then this one might be just what you need. Otherwise.. steer clear. Not my cup of tea.

rostetti (378) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Can. Pours dark red with creamy and smooth white head. Aroma and taste have sweet malts. Very smooth and soft. Very good in it’s style.

mircoas (314) - ITALY - APR 23, 2017
33cl @ bottle. Stout dignitosa, bell’aspetto, molto beverina grazie al poco alcol presente. Birra da pasto.

hrabren (1186) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2017
0.5 l canfrom Vrutak, Zagreb. Beer tasting at Brnja’s place. Clear dark red to brown, with small to medium off-white to tan head. Light roasty, very light caramel, a bit boring. Very sweet and sugary, to much lactose? Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, lasting finish but again to sweet. Not bad, but exaggerated.

3.4
FireGlider (590) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 18, 2017
Canned. Dark brown/amber color with big creamy brown head. Milk chocolate and light roasted malt aroma. Creamy and sweet taste. Medium body with solid lasting chocolate aftertaste.

Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2017
Boks 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune i heimen 2.2.17. Ultramørk amber. Småhissig. Høyt tett skum som daler til et ok nivå. God sjokoladearoma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken søt lakris. For søt. På grensen til kvalmende.

2.8
Rune (12803) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2017
500ml can kindly shared by Finn. Deep mahogany coloured body. Lasting fawn-coloured head. Spotty lacing. Smell of dark dough with dark fruity hints. Dark doughy flavours with hints of toffee and sweet dark fruits. Sweet and dry to the ending. Quite alright, just a bit unvaried and sweet (At Finn’s place in Tromsø 02.02.2017).

2.7
GhostS (368) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 27, 2016
medium aroma - well roasted malt (nearly burnt), a bit of burnt coffee, caramel, old cask’s wood, a bit of earthy and dump smack. medium taste - acidulous, carbonated (excessive for its body), sweetness a bit out of proportion, some malt and roasted coffee over there, raisins, sugar’s syrup and some vanilla. it’s not a stout, definitely no!

3.2
djoeye (4605) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2016
Aroma; milk chocolate, berries, sweet strong perfume coming up, plums, vanilla, caramels. Look; fawn dense smooth head, dark clear brown body, ruby edge. Taste; caramel, berries, plum, chocolate, roasted soft malts, smoothest backbone of peely sweet hops - soft smooth creamy malted fruity finish. Feel; smoothest ever, flat n slippery. Overall; cream fruit-stout, session-porter? [44cl.can 4.1% BB30APR17 [email protected]]
