Kobracai (165) - FINLAND - SEP 24, 2016
0,5l can from Viking Line Tax Free. Pours almost black. Aroma is roasted coffee and some chocolate. The aroma is alright but I’m very disappointed with the taste. It was watery and bitter. And bitter as if something was wrong. As if all the taste was run through water too many times. Don’t see the hype.

On tap @ O'Reilly's St. John's, NL. Pours opaque with a thick, creamy, mocha head. Aromas are vanilla, and chocolate. Tastes are coffee, bittersweet chocolate, wood,and chalk. Full body, smooth and creamy, medium chalky, bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pint at the Big Jug, Durham. Dark brownish-red, with a thick and fine mocha head. Roasted malt aroma with cream. Heavy flavours of roasted malts, slight cream, and plastic sheeting.

Frisch vom Hahn in Jelenia Gora. Dunkley Rotbraun im Glas. Malzig-kratzig, wie ein Stout sein muss.

mice (962) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
Musta olut paksulla kermaisella parin sentin vaahtokerroksella, joka jättää kivasti pitsiä. Typpikapselin ansiota toki. Tuoksu paahteisen maltainen, kahvinen ja suklainen. Maku paahteinen, kahvinen ja suklainen sekä "maitoinen". Hieman vetinen. Keskitäyteläinen kermainen suutuntuma. Pesee Guinnessin vastaavan yllättävän selvästi.

LazyPyro (1202) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
440ml nitro can (as Murphy’s Draught Irish Stout) poured into a Guinness pint glass :)
Black appearance with a one-two finger thick creamy and perfectly smooth beige head, good retention. Aroma: lightly roasted malt, chocolate. Taste: same as the aroma, chocolate and roasted malt flavours, coffee, bittersweet. Very low carbonation, smooth but quite watery texture. Quite similar to Guinness, probably not as good in my opinion, but it’s a standard drinkable stout.

Good standby dry stout, I like it better than Guinness (maybe just cuz it’s indier) but also I find it creamier and less variable.

GhostS (365) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 4, 2016
medium and sour aroma - a lot of roasted malt, moderate roasted coffee, fresh black bread, soured fruits. absolutely dry taste with some bitter in the final - slightly roasted cold coffee, moderate roasted malt, dark chocolate. light body, but creamy, low carbonization and acidity. very good!
