3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brewed in Belgium !!! Pours a very dark brown color with a super foamy headt that dissipates in a few minutes. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, dark malts and earth. Taste is very similar to the aroma with the addition of some peppery notes. Mouthfeel is very thin and dry !!! Overall this stout drinkable, but not exciting.

33cl bottle from Ølhandleriet, Oslo. Pours black with a beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malt with dark chocolate and hints of coffee, dark fruits and hops with some yeasty notes. Fairly light body with a bit soft carbonation. Moderate sweet and malty with a fairly dry and pleasantly bitter finish. Nice and easy stout that goes down easy.

Nose is roast malt, light chocolate, mineral notes, yeast, dates and other dark fruits.

Medium bodied, a little over spritzy in the carbonation, dry in the finish.
Ok for a Belgian stout, I’ve encountered much worse in my time!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl - Light-bodied but tasteful Belgian take on the Guinness Foreign Stout tradition with the low UK/IRL-ABV of a duller regular Guinness. All elements are in place: roast and dark chocolate bitterness; somewhat lacking: creamy mouthfeel (OK considering low ABV, makes for more to sample); not sincerely missed: stout sweetness; extra present: distinct De la Senne yeast spice and pronounced earthy hops. - Convincing brew, slightly departing from EU-insular traditions.
