33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07/2013
Aroma has hay, toffee, some oat and slight sour notes. Flavour is sourish with some oat. Finishes tart with some lemony and earthy notes. A stout in Belgian way even more sour than I expected.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a deep brown color with a big frothy sticky eggshell head that covers the glass and stays... The nose is a way subtle, just faint roasted grain and a ever so light touch of metallic chocolate. On the palate it delivers with nice carbonation to keep the mouthfeel pretty light but full bodied. Nice roasted chocolate malts and a smidgen of smoked grain. Clean finish and a easy drinking everyday Belgian style stout.

Maybe the glass was not well washed, because the first impression in nose was to detergent. Alongside, the fresh hop was very present, but I expect more from a stout. This one has a watery texture and a short development with a chocolate finishing very light. Disappointing.

TET (2737) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
A colablack beer with a medium, dense and beige head. Aroma is strongly roasted, even burned, coffee, some citrusfruity hops, hint of milky sourness and chocolate. Taste is roasted, quite dry, some sourness and black coffee. Taste is simple, but tastefull, roastiness is dominating, but still balanced. Medium bodied, quite smooth to drink. Roasted beer, but still tastefull, balanced and nice.

The only thing this stout has going for it is a decent bouquet of dark chocolate, cola and coffee. Its downhill from there. Its got a long aspirin finish with too much fizz on the side. Its got some substance, but mostly its too watery for a good stout.
