Oakes (19362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Nice and black. Thin head. Hoppy and roasty aroma, just like I like. Full of roast but a little bit thin in the finish. Good drinking stout, to accompany the gorgeous view.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 22, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Re-rate 2/12: Bottle sample at a Stouts & Porters blind tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Black with a light brown head. Acidic vegetal and fruity aroma with a bit of roastiness. Acidic-sweetish fruity flavor with a bit of roastiness and a bit of chocolate. Light to medium-bodied. Infected. 4/4/4/3/8=2.3

Re-rate 12/8/10: Draught sample at the brewery in Yehiam. Roasty and coffee-ish. Aroma suggests something was a bit off with the fermentation (maybe the beer’s too young?). 5/4/7/3/12=3.1

Bottle. Black-colored with a huge, slowly-diminishing brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, some coffee, a bit of fruits and some acidic malt notes. Bittersweet roasty flavor with chocolate, coffee and some fruitiness. Finishes bitter with some herbal and smoky touches. Silky mouthfeel. Not bad. 6/4/7/4/13=3.4

Bottle. Best of the malka beers, tastes more like a sweet stout which is humorous, lots of milk chocoalte in there.
