commonmac (1313) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2017
On tap nitro style at The Pine Box with blonderedhead. Pint glass. Darker brown, basically black with a creamy tan head. Great lacing as you would expect from this style. Aroma has a healthy coffee quality with just a hint of chocolate. Taste has characteristics of coffee and chocolate with a chocolate milk like consistency and flavor profile winning out. There is a nuttiness working through and making its hazelnut presence felt towards the end. Minimal bitterness until the finish. The nitro fits the style but doesn’t really do much to enhance the drinking experience for me. Decent but not one of my favorites from this brewery.

KW92 (1634) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - MAR 25, 2017

Data zabutelkowania: 01.12.2016
AROMAT : Intensywny. Dominują ciemne słody (paloność, prażoność) oraz nuta zbożowa.
SMAK : Wytrawne. Lekko palone. Posmak gorzkiego kakaa. Zaskakująco wodniste. Ekstremalnie pijalne.
WYGLĄD : Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska.
OGÓLNIE : Lekki, dobry stout. Cieszy mnie fakt, że w Polsce mamy już takich na pęczki.

TeijoA (73) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
35,5 cl bottle, bottled on 01/12/2016. Black color with a small beige head. Roasty coffee and chocolate aromas, some sweetness, true to style, nothing much unexpected. Mouthfeel has some weird fizzy thing going on that is the first thing one notices, not totally sold on the creaminess either. Body could definitely be fuller, but then again it’s to be expected for 5,5 %. On the drier side of stouts, which works alright. Nice coffee with chocolate hiding in the back in taste, but a bit muted. Just needs more body.

Smooth black colour with a light brown head. Cocoa, chocolate, caramel, smoothness. Good.

dysenteri (325) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2017
35,5 cl bottle from Beergium. Pours pitch black with beige head. Aroma is roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, malts, liquorice. Medium sweetness, a bit smokey roastiness in taste. Creamy mouthfeel, it kinda "foams" up in the mouth when you take a sip, growing greatly in volume (dunno how to explain it...). Great balanced stout, feels a bit luxurious.

Idiosynkrasie (7847) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2017
355ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of coffee, burnt coffee bones, cocoa, a touch of liquorice and tobacco. Taste is roasty dark malty, notes of espresso, coffee, cocoa, subtle sweetness with a touch of treacle and liquorice, mildly bitter hoppy counterweight with minimally metallic touch. Superbly balanced, smooth palate, highly drinkable.

Pours a dark black with a two finger creamy tan head with good retention. The aroma is roasted barley, faint chocolate, oatmeal. Flavor is more of the same with a prominent oatmeal taste.

martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle, bottled 01.12.2016 (from beergium). Pours dark brown-black with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, roast, coffee, some oatas. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, coffee, malt. Finish is roast bitter. Feels light but not watery, really well balanced. Overall: great beer, really well balanced, really clean (but not dead), Reminds Fuller’s Porter for some reason.
