COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

Abijen (1510) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - OCT 6, 2013
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.

dnicolaescu (885) - 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 (1250) - 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 (2314) - 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 (2331) - 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.

Benzai (8747) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle @ home. Brownish color, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, sweet, brown sugar, caramel. Average body and carbonation.

jmgreenuk (4779) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle at Beer Passion 2014, Antwerp. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy off white head and some broken lace. The aroma is roasted malt, skunky, sweet sweaty socks. The flavour is medium sweet with a sweet malt light fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 16, 2014
Bottle: Deep chestnut-amber coloured, small - quickly collapsing - off-white loose head; mild to moderate sweetish-roasty nose with traces of caramel; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; moderate sweet-roasty finish-as well; followed by a slight balancing malty bitterness. Tastes not like a Stout; more like an average, souped-up german Malzbier…
