This pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a short lived brown head. On the nose there is chocolate and alcohol. The taste is very dense. Dark chocolate, espresso, toffee, berries, figs, liquorice, and underneath it all hot alcohol, like vodka. There is no hop presence. It is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. The beer leans a little to the sweet side, though nearly balanced by bitterness. Truly, the dessert of beers.

Jolie robe noire intense avec une mousse beige assez persistante et une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de fruits noirs alcoolisés, malts torréfiés,chocolat noir et café.....La bouche nous amène sur une douceur mêlée à une légère amertume avec les saveurs des arômes sentis.La finale est excellente nous laissant sur une douce amertume .Un grand stout très équilibré et d’une grande finesse que le petit chat a bien adopté!!!!!!! 18,5/20

Dégustée dans un verre Charles Quint. Température de début 7 à 8°. Magnifique robe brun sombre opaque surmontée d’une fine mousse beige assez tenace; bonne carbonatation. Nez très délicat sur le chocolat avec une touche vineuse(madère,vin cuit) et un soupçon de levure très agréable. Le goût est fantastique et combine parfaitement les saveurs de type Chocolat/cacao/café avec les notes fruitées(prunes,figues) le tout dans une parfaite harmonie douceur/amertume. La richesse et la complexité de cette bière nous obligeront à la regoûter prochainement ce qui ne sera pas une pénible affaire!!! La finale est très longue et plaisante et nous ramène toutes les flaveurs en ajoutant la chaleur appréciable d’un alcool idéalement intégré. Un merveilleux stout!!! 18,5/20

I was only going to include pre-Ratebeer beers as ticks, but I want the country on my map so I am breaking my own rules! Better than I expected. A perfectly nice stout, even if it’s not particularly interesting.

Jounipel (2) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2016 does not count
This stuff what one couldn’t call a stout even with a good will is way overrated. It tastes like the same breweries strong lager- same tastes of dark rum, coffee, pear, apple and light malt. This one was way more than just a disappointment - this one was pure waste of money and time.

Pours dark black colour and has big tanned head that leaves lots of lacing behind. Lasts long too. Not sweet like other stouts at all, and you can’t tell it has over 8 percent of alcohol. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted barley, espresso with a sourness and burnt notes. This beer was so smooth with a slick medium body and low carbonation. Good at hiding its alcohol and very warming.

Bottiglia. Nel gusto al naso c’è il sapore forte dell’orzo tostato che sopravanza tutti gli altri. L’intensità olfattiva è più che normale e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello è di schiuma cremosa, aderente, dalla buona tenuta e con merletti a contornare il vetro come finale. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La carbonazione è media. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è deciso. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona.Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate e di tostato. Il finale è lungo, secco e asciutto. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, cioccolato, caffè, frutta secca, pane tostato. Alcol presente non invadente.

Pours opaque dark brown, with small coffee-coloured head that doesn’t last beyond the first few sips. Firm chocolate and butterscotch punch on the nose, some hints of cherry and grape. Taste is roasty and somewhat creamy, with some brown sugar sweetness - not getting the fruity notes as much. Leafy hop presence, finish is comparatively dry Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Solid, worthwhile stout.
