33 cl bottle, $1.90 at Binnys, April 2011. Another lower-alcohol beer I should have finished long ago. Yet when opened, theres a definite waft of alcohol in the air. Poured into a Nonick glass, its black with brown highlights, a slightly foamy stout head. Smell up close has slightly roasty stout grain. Taste has some coffee stout roast up front. Dry mouthfeel which still has nice hop bitterness. At this stage, it seems like more of a sharp German bitterness than English. And I like it just fine. Some dregs at the bottom. A secondary ferment? Maybe thats why this one has held up very well. I can slightly credit my beer cellar which stays at a nice 50F when I lean the door in front of it.

Barwa czarna, piana ponownie ładna, długo utrzymująca się. Aromat typowo stout-owy: mocna kawa, nuty palone i niunase kakao. W smaku lekkie, raczej wytrawne i wyraźnie palone, niemal popiołowe. Nuty gorzkiej czekolady wyczuwalne

LazyPyro (735) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2016
330ml bottle. Pour is almost black with a nice creamy light tan/beige head, decent retention. Aroma: toasted malts and dark fruit, bit of smoke. Taste: dark fruits, toasted malt, hint of smoke but I think thats more in the aroma, light chocolatey. Finish is dry, bitter. Fairly light body for a stout, drinkable though, well done.

Syfher (356) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tumbler glass ; from the fridge. Usual but good stout. Were in front of the typical light, dry stout that use to be pour at every glasses in pubs. Dark, with a creamy coffee head, the aroma is full of cocoa and spices. The taste is great, but the aftertaste is the usual of a light stout : water. But hey, go for it !

Grumpelmies (152) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle. Brownish black. Not much of a head. Aroma of malts, coffee, chocolate and some hops. Taste is the same plus tobacco and ashes. Tasty ashes I must add. Medium carbonation. Long finish with some hoppy bitternes. Very flavourful despite the rather low abv. Yummy.
