Stew41 (1964) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 5, 2017
Much better than expected. Nice roast and milk chocolate, low(ish) fizz, holds a chill well. Makes for a nice dark beer in the tropics.

vinivini (1702) - BELARUS - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle at 4.7% ABV. Pours opaque deep brown. Lush frothy beige head. Decent retention. The foam leaves sophisticated pattern laces on glassware. Bread and wort on nose. Also molasses, roasred malts. Light to medium body. Oily palate. Rich malts on flavour. Bready, toasty, minor roastiness. Semidry. Light grassy bitterness on ending. Highly drinkable and well made.
