altonbrownd (5450) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2011
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.

jfb (5429) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2012
(bottle) pours a darkest ruby-brown colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and toasted malts, dark chocolate and herbal hops, with a hint of citrus fruits. flavour is mostly the same, lots of toasted malts and espresso, dark fruit, bubble gum and a light citric tartness in the earthy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

erickok (5269) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2012
Big smoke when opening... Pours a deep black body and big foamy tan head. Nice! Interesting aroma, with a mix of roasted malts and pecan nuts at first, a light funky fruityness later. Light resin, some lemon even. Strangely, only some reviews here many notice of that sourness.. Taste is richer than I expected. Not an impy of course, but rather a well drinkable yet roasted and interesting drink. Long licorice aftertaste. Quite a positive surprise for me! (33cl bottle from bottle shop at Utrecht Centraal)

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2013
Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with berry fruit. Medium body, flavour as the aroma with some bitterness and a lingering bitter finish.

Douberd (4751) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7% Totally black in colour with one finger of thick head, dark brown in colour, with surprisingly good retention. Thick lacing on the glass. Aroma has a ton of roasted malts, some light chocolate, a hint of black olives too. Great taste with liquorice in it, again a ton of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, light vanilla. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste. Thick body with the correct amount of carbonation. Really dry on the palate. Really good beer, can easily stand next to stouts from better known breweries.

Alengrin (4429) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from a Dutch supermarket, thanks to Craftmember. One of these ’virtuous’ beers with double names from this brewery. Thick, dense, pale yellowish beige head retaining very well, colour very dark reddish chestnut brown, blackish in overall appearance but transparent on the edges. Pleasant, typical stout aroma of bitter chocolate nibs, coffee grounds, burnt toast, beef stock, bayleaf, subtle hints of salmiac, wet leather, iron shavings (but feeling ’natural’ here), dried banana, vanilla and cigar ashes. Despite being characterized as a dry stout, it kicks off with a dense, almost candied, yet restrained sweetness, a bit liquorice-like, along with raisins, baked banana and candied dates, but drying as the liquid travels over the tongue, with a slick, oily, caramelly, nutty and deeply toasted malt body with soft carbonation, turning roasted in the end with a lovely, profoundly ’fondant chocolate’-like bittersweetness further bittered with late but quite assertive, spicy, leafy hops in the end and a dash of warming, but non-disturbing alcohol. I love a good stout and this surely is one, makes me curious about the rest of this brewery’s range.

Bullit (4398) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle from Berts Bierhuis. Very dark brown colour, beige head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, coffee cream. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee and coffee cream, bit of fruityness. Medium carbonation, chewy mouthfeeling. Good stuff.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2011
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.

Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet with a touch of licorice. Taste is a coffee assault with an aluminum tinge.

MarcoDL (3979) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Bit better than the other beers from 7 Deugden. Decent stout with the usual notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Has a more rich taste than the other beers from this brewery.
