3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. Pours black with tan head. Aroma: smoky, coffee, chocolate with hints of something sour. Flavour is chocolate with coffee coming in later. A bit too watery for the high abv. Sticky mouthfeel. Overall quite an OK stout. I wonder what these are going to do next.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is deep roast, some mocca and liquorice, touch of metal/vegetable and regular malt. Flavour is quite dry indeed, loads of roast and liquorice, with a strong metallic sidenote. Some baltic notes, but unfortunately the metal dominates a bit too much.

Yum I love a good stout. And this is one, though the percentage is quite high (7,5% on my label). It has all the things that make a stout nice: the dryness, the coffee tones etc. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled April 7, 2011. Nearly perfect black. Very familiar stout smell, strong in malt, sweet and smoky. First taste is blunt and a bit harsh. After taste is more subtle, but lets try. The bang comes from plain amount of material put to this beer. The aroma develops to earthly basement style stout. This is quite dry stout, like the categorization says. Very decent, but not the world class prime example of this style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Arend’s Nest. Black pour with bubbly off white head. Chocolate and coffee in aroma with a certain yeastiness. Flavor is initially chocolate the a strong coffee kick. A slight sour dryness spoils it overall.

Nice small vast tan head on top of a black beer.
Smell earth, coffee, espresso, hint of dark chocolate, dark fruits, spices, speculaas.
Taste is a mix of roasted malts, coffee, coffee beans, spices, dark chocolate, bitter, light caramel, hint of hops and light earthy.
Light dry aftertaste of bitter, coffee and grass.
Low carbo, soft light oily mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture. Nice brew!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at Arendsnest on 5 April 2011. My first beer from this new brewery and, overall, a quite promising effort. Very dark colour. Good coffee & chocolate in the aroma. There’s just a hint of cooked vegetable which I sometimes liken to baked beans too. Some roast coffee in the flavour. Quite creamy, but dry mouthfeel. Looking forward to trying some more beers from this brewer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Bierkoning. Black body with slight head. Nose of licorice, malts and some vanilla. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, licorice. Sort of all over the place. Quite a prickly stout.
