Countbeer (6404) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle: Strange thing is that I have had this beer before and thought I hadd rated it. The good thing is, it will get a decent rating from me now than it would have gotten years ago. Deep dark brown pour. Bigger sized ashy tan colored head which disappears or changes very slow, on top of a very deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aromas of cacoa, chocolate, some toasted malts, chalk dusty, toasted/roasted herbs and floral nettle/hop tones. Flavours of roast, roasted malts and grains, hops, something floral, nice bitter tones, hint of coffee, nettle, something light creamy and cacoa. Aftertaste is good bitter with roast, some bitter chocolate, floral, nettle hops and something light creamy. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium to just a lightly bit fuller body and a smooth light creamy texture. 4.5 ABV and a hell of a beer! Balanced, full of taste, light harsher on the bitter floral grains, but smooth.

BitchPls (800) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Cola brown beer with a big dark beige head. Slight roastiness in the aroma. Pretty sweet. Coffee, chocolate, sweet red berries, bitterness. Very very good for a supermarket stout. Not too light bodied and a more complex flavor than usual market beers.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a faint off-white head. Aroma of sour fruits, sweet orange and some roastiness. Flavour of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, sweet orange, sour fruits, floral bitterness and some floral notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Rather sour for a stout, but still good.

Kaatuu lasiin mustana ja reunoilta hieman valoa lpisevn. Vaahto on 3 sormen paksuinen ja mattomainen, reunoille ja reilusti pitsi. Hajussa on vahvana tummaa kahvia ja paahteisuutta, taustalta lytyy hivenen multaa, tuhkaa ja tummaa suklaata. Paahde ja kahvi kuitenkin jyllvt. Maussa on niin ikn paahde ja kahvi vahvana, mutta nyt tummaa suklaata on reippaasti mukana tasaamassa sit. Hieman mys tuhkaa ja maata on joukossa. Suutuntuma on yllttvnkin tuhti prosentteihin nhden, tasainen ja miellyttv. Tss stoutissa maku on todella miellyttv ja tytelinen, kun hajussa on selke tunkkaisuutta. Positiivinen ylltys.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Dark brown, average carbonation. Roasty aroma with notes of coffee and chocolate. Bitter taste with a light sweet touch. Medium body. Not a very long finish.
