labeerinthum (611) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 27, 2016
Bottiglia. Il naso si riempie di orzo tostato. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č flebile e la persistenza olfattiva č corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e finisce con un ampio pizzo sul bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine č media. Il colore č scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo č pieno. Il dolce č medio e l’amaro č medio: non si surclassano. L’intensitŕ gustativa č elevata e la persistenza gustativa č sufficiente. Il gusto č piacevole. Il finale č pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto č di media intensitŕ. Il palato riporta sentori di miele, cioccolato, frutta secca e pane tostato.

AnG_BrgNor (574) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Black with brown lasting head. Much chocolate in the aroma and tast, but not to much. Taste is a bit tart witch combines great with the swwet chocolate taste and the bitter aftertaste. A different and intersting chocolate stout.

Kraftig mřrk farge, kremet skum ved skjenking. Litt skuffende lite smak en hva jeg hadde forventet utifra navnet. Men en god stout.

Fules (912) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2016
Dobozosból ittam, nitrogéngolyó van benne, mint a guinnes-ben, ettől csodás, bár kisebb, de hasonlóan krémes és tömör, nagyon sokáig tartó habja van. Színe fekete. Enyhe, csokis illat. Csodás krémes, csokis ízvilág, enyhe édes, pörkölt malátás háttérrel. Jelzés értékű keserű, közepes test, enyhe szénsavtartalom. Nagyon jól kiegyensúlyozott, nagyon finom stout.

mice (842) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Musta olut runsaalla, höttöisellä beigellä vaahdolla. Pehmeän viettelevä tuoksu on kevyen paahteinen, suklainen, lakritsinen, toffeinen ja vaniljainen sekä hieman kahvinen, makea ja oikeinkin toimiva. Maku paahteinen, kahvinen, pehmeän lakritsainen ja vaniljainen sekä suklainen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, melko nahkea ja kuiva kokonaisuus.

Rich aroma of cocoa and espresso. Opaque near-black colour. Flavours of roasty malt, coffee, with dark chocolate notes; smooth front with a sustained bitter finish. Heavy body with medium carbonation. This is a rich and enjoyable brew.
