The traditional brewed stout, used to be a part of every brewery. This tradition may have been forgotten by some, but our locally brewed stout is still alive and kicking. The dark brown color with a slightly tanned foamy head, are inviting you to enjoy the slightly sugary sweet and very discreet candy aroma with slightly toasted malty notes. The sweet flavor, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation brings out the dark caramel taste.. The aftermath complements the slightly fusty woody touch and sweet finish. 10.8°

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Dark brown body with small light tan head. Odd dry caramel aroma with cereal and artificial malt extract. But that didn’t prepare me for the taste... Oh boy. Artificial sweetener, bubble gum, astringent ending.... What a mess. I was happy to find a stout in a French bar, but if the curious yet uninformed French would drink this... I feel for them. Even for a sweet stout it’s sweet, but the real problem is the artificial taste. Bleh. Perseverance and determination required to finish this monstrosity. If you have to tick this, keep another beer to the site to get rid of the nasty aftertaste. (33cl bottle at Gambrinus in Tours)

Robe brune, assez limpide. Pas de mousse. Saveurs de cafés et fruits noirs. Peu de texture. Moyennement longue en bouche. Une Stout passable.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly deminishing head. Dark red amber colour. MOderate malty and light hoppy and light yeasty aroma. Light bitter flavor. Molre fruity notes than roast and chocolate. Average finish. Oily palate. Typical belgian stout. More fruit than dark malts.

mikkellund42 (618) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with small light brown head. Aroma is vague with hints of malt, coffee, apple pie and barnyard. Taste is very sweet, light acidic and faint bitter. Body is oily with light carbonation. Finish is long and mostly sweet with notes that follow the nose. It’s more like a sweet schwartz bier than a stout.

Deu (865) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Hezy red-brown dark, creamy disappearing head. Liquorica and coca in nose. Midlle body, some carbon BUT! Too sweet, even more than too sweet, badly sweet.

berntholer (1207) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2014
beige dense head leaves some lacing. brown colour. so far so good. aroma is very sugary sweet, faint hit of roasted malts. taste is a complete sugary mess that tastes like sugar and nothing else. calling this "beer" is a total insult, calling it "stout" even more. no body, over carbonated. a repulsive mess, even my sink didn’t like to swallow it! bottle 33cl

dnicolaescu (1075) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 24, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: clear deep red-brown, big beige head. Aroma: lageresque, sulphury aroma, a hint of black malts and toasted bread. A touch of hops. Taste: sugary sweetness, brown sugar, never really balanced by hop bitterness, as the after taste remain cloying.

JorgeLee (1338) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Thin dark brown coloured beer, pretty high carbonation. Sweet and sugary. Some malt loaf and chocolate hints, but mostly sugar. It’s not violently unpleasant but way too sweet for my taste.

vipinvelp (2589) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Clear dark brown light brown foam head. Sweet caramel aroma, when tasted initially sweet, turning little bitter, then turning sweet again. Banana there. Not a stout, more a Dubbel. (Velp 201409)

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Sweet stout completely in compliance with the style as it has been brewed in Flanders for many decades in the 20th century. A dark chestnut beer with sweet, even sugary, malty profile with some candied fruits, straightforward, caramelly, smooth and thin with a very subtle bitterishness in the finish - exactly what English-style sweet stouts were like in the old days. Again: respect for a brewery that seems to have changed nothing about either their range or their beers in fifty years.
