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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Alcohol: 7.5%
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle@Home. Chocolate and laurel aroma but not very strong. Opaque, light brown head, fair lace. Very floral start, roasted coffee bitter, nasty bitter finish, hint of black berries. Sparkling and thinnish. More Belgian than English and a bit out of balance.
