1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Where: Café de Wijngaard, Poperinge.
Appearance: Dark red-brown colour with a beige head.
Aroma: Sweet sugar, some malt.
Body: Thin and watery. Ok carbonation.
Flavour: Sweet, some malt. Might be some hints of something else in there that makes it a stout, but it is too well hidden.
Comment: Too artificially sweet and thin. Sure it is a sweet stout, but still there should be some stout in it as well.

Finding stout in Belgium is quite a challenge, so when I found this one on a list, I ordered it immediately. What a disapointment! Sweet, sweet, sweet. Just sugar, a hint of bad coffee, horrible aftertaste. No. I did not finish it.

Pas d'arôme agréable (herbe pisseuse) et un palais fade.

Bottle at Delirium Café. Opaque dark brown liquid with small off-white head. Way too pale. Aroma of pumpernickel, bread, sugar (lots of it), banana, british yeast esters and caramel. Taste is very, very sweet and light bitter with notes of pumpernickel, raw sugar and caramel. Light bodied with way too high carbonation. Awful. Way too sweet.

Deep red black, good off white head and moderate condition. Sweet and gentle roasted coffee and delicate buttery notes in the nose, low sweet caramel and a little roasted bitterness in the mouth and a gentle sweet roasty finish.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
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)

I usually like to elaborate when rating a beer but I have no idea what the hell this is even supposed to be. Who even classed this as a stout? If anything this is a (very) sweet brown ale along the lines of a VERY bad version of a Heineken Oud Bruin. It’s thin and watery with pretty much no mouthfeel at all. The one thing about this that hits you the most is the diabetes inducing assault of sugary sweetness on the tastebuds, which makes this beer insufferable. I actually feel annoyed that I paid money for this!
