Pours a dark red clear beer with a good white head. Smells honey, yeast and sweet. Sugar bomb. Only sugar, caramelish and honey. No carbo, thin body and a watery texture. Filthy.

Bottle 33cl. Clear deep chestnut brown, small frothy beige head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, brown sugar, caramel; taste is heavy sweet, sugary, licorice; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, sweet sugary aftertaste, hint of bitterness in the finish; old-school Belgian stout, very much like a Dutch Oud Bruin.

T: very sweet, caramel, malt, some like fruity tones, light body, average carbonation, for stout very bad, I don’t understand why they brewed this.

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.

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

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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.
