Pours black with a quickly diminishing light brown head. Lovely smooth roasted flavours, licorice, chocolate etc. Nothing to really grab you by the bollards, but this is a very fine stout. Lengthy bitter finish.

Dorstig (51) - Oegstgeest, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2010
Pours brownish/blaclk with a beige head which leaves a nice lacing. Aroma’s of chocolat, nuts, coffee, dried fruits. Light/medium body with mild carbonation. Dry, salty with enough malt to balance it out in a nice dry warming finish. Excellent stuff and an almost unsurpassed price/quality value. Will buy and drink this again with pleasure!

Bottle consumed a few months after best before date. Pour is almost opaque black, small tan head and lots of lacing left on the glass. The big nose of roast and coffee that has been enjoyed with ’fresh’ bottles is kind of absent here. Earthy aroma., smoke, and like a smoked oysters? Flavour is pretty similar as aroma with a little leather, slight metallic edge, with some good bitterness present. Also getting some sweet alcohol like a port or something? I kinda really like this.

Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

This is definitely one of the more wild and interesting stouts I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy, thanks to fellow RateBeerian BrewGoblin. Pours black with a frothy brown head. Aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, chiles, and earth. Has the aromas you’d expect in a stout, only with some surprises along the way. This has a lighter body than i’d expect for such a strong stout and had a rather soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. There’s a delicious sweet malty vanilla flavor. Definitely some boozy flavor present, but just enough to be warming. Has a nice fruity espresso aftertaste.

330ml can into pint glass. Pours jet black with minimal head. Roasty taste with a little hint of chocolate. Would drink again.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 I was having one hell of a time getting any kind of scent off this beer. Not much of an aroma, I could dectect some very slight chocolate scents but that was about it. Pour is a nice opaque black with your typical copper/brown head. Now the taste. This stuff is light as hell. This one definately does not share the typical flavor characteristics of a stout. Its smooth but not malty, and has a bit of a sweet taste to it. Overall I would rate this one slightly above average.
