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)

A disaster. Has nothing to do with porter. Very water like, no taste of coffee, roasted beans or dark chocolate. Instead I tasted milk chocolate and brown sugar.

gopherfan99 (983) - CROATIA - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle; pours dark brown with some reddish tints with a beige head; aroma is sweet with roast malt, sugar, and a little caramel; taste is quite sweet with no really stout bitterness; kind of disappointed in this one

MrBlueSky93 (503) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Pours dark brown/black half a finger off white head. Aroma of malts, spices, toasty malts, sugary sweetness, caramel, honey. Taste of initial sugar, caramel, almost a malt liquor, toffee, sarsaparilla, light smokiness. Not bad, just very sweet.

Hanoi (636) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2015
Bottle. Bought this a little blind. Nose: Non-existant slight malt a little sugar and wet cardboard. Taste is horrific. Sugar and sweet malts, with a sickly finish. Slight emerging milk chocolate, but really it’s just sugar. My first Het Sas beer, and I will not be rushing back, I can’t recall a worse Belgian beer.

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