3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Excellent stout, mellow but not weak. Hazy dark brown, ever so slight watery start followed by a fuller mouth feel. Smells of milk chocolate ("koetjesreep", if you know it) with a hint of minerals and some hop. I’m often in the mood for a bit more ’bite’ but this is a nice thirst quenching, lighter stout that is very well balanced.

I guess it should be a stout, but - sadly - it is too weak. I didn’t found any aroma, but the taste is there, still softly, but it is present.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Daaark brown color and huge tan head, kind of thin, thou. Aroma is chocolate, some hops. Taste is great, chocolate, vanilla, nice hoppy flavor and hoppy bitterness, even some smoke. Thin body (shame for that), disappointingly watery, average carbonation. Finish is again great, roasty, hoppy with long coffee aftertaste. Could be hell of a Stout if it is more complex.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Though it is quite dark and labelled as a stout - not much roasted malts there. You get some warm roast grains in the aroma, and subtle ashes in the finish. But the green grassy and lemony hops are quite strong, on the other hand, as is the „Belgian” yeasty spice. The bitterness is also strong, but it remains somewhat uncovered in the thin finish. The thin body is its only weakness, but eve that is acceptable for a session strength beer. In the end, it more a hybrid between a spicy Belgian stout and a hoppy ale. Very nice.
