fiammanghilla (990) - Genova, ITALY - APR 29, 2013
Bottiglia 33 cl Scura schiuma marroncina fine e persistente. In bocca prevale una tostatura leggermente cioccolatosa, comunque non dolce, bilanciata. Ottima! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iFox

Gerbeer (4022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013

3.3
visionthing (5535) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 15, 2013
33cl bottle from Ølhandleriet, Oslo. Pours black with a beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malt with dark chocolate and hints of coffee, dark fruits and hops with some yeasty notes. Fairly light body with a bit soft carbonation. Moderate sweet and malty with a fairly dry and pleasantly bitter finish. Nice and easy stout that goes down easy.

3.2
Theydon_Bois (20646) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottle, from Dranken Geers, at the 500 miles tasting in the Sham, 23/03/13. Very dark mahogony brown with a thin beige head. Nose is roast malt, light chocolate, mineral notes, yeast, dates and other dark fruits. Taste comprises roast malt, dark chocolate, ash, burnt tones, light smoke. Medium bodied, a little over spritzy in the carbonation, dry in the finish. Ok for a Belgian stout, I’ve encountered much worse in my time!

3.6
bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 12, 2013
33cl - Light-bodied but tasteful Belgian take on the Guinness Foreign Stout tradition with the low UK/IRL-ABV of a duller regular Guinness. All elements are in place: roast and dark chocolate bitterness; somewhat lacking: creamy mouthfeel (OK considering low ABV, makes for more to sample); not sincerely missed: stout sweetness; extra present: distinct De la Senne yeast spice and pronounced earthy hops. - Convincing brew, slightly departing from EU-insular traditions.

3.4
gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2013
330 ml bottle - pours dark brown with a light beige head. roasted and lightly smoked aromas, some soy sauce and some liquorice. Light mouthfeel with bitter roastiness. Nice for such low alcohol, would’ve liked it a bit sweeter.
