Bottle.Dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, a hint of coffee. Medium body. Taste is sweeet and and reminds me of a danish hvidtøl - not much stout here.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Black colour with a big head but disappearing fast. Aroma of moca. The Taste of sugar was so strong that it was covering everything. 5 people in the room and nobody was able to drink it. Finished in the sink. Very bad. Y

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
mocha head that disappears quickly with lacing. coffee coloured beer. aroma of toasted malts, earthy. (here is where it goes wrong). very very sweet taste, almost like sugar water with a very weak liquorice note in the aftertaste. quite a lot of carbonation thin body. hmm perhaps the ’pony’ in the name is an alias for ’sugar’? the label does read ’with added sweetener’, but really, was this vast amount of sugar necessary or are the masquerading something?? :) bottle 25 cl / best before 11-04-2014

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Grainy and somewhat metallic aroma. Light brown head disappears quickly. Syrup and metal flavour. Almost like drinking a fizzy burnt caramel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20100722.
Pours dark brown color with a large off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and sourish fruits. Flavor of sour fruits, cocoa, roasted malts and some cocoa. Too thin-bodied and the sourness doesn’t quite fit here.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
11/II/13 - 25cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB:n/a (2013-159)
Clear dark brown beer, small aery beige head with fine bubbles, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: grassy hops, surprisingly enough, this smells like a pilsener, grains, a bit sweet, hay, stable (which is pretty fitting given the name). MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, more sugar, caramel, hay, bitter hops, grains, more sugar still. Aftertaste: little bitter, lots of sugar, caramel, bit grassy, hay, ersatz chocolate. Man this is really bad stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Rated on 16.07.2010
Aroma has oat, some sweetish chocolate and also some harsh notes. Flavour is sweet and feels a bit artficial. It has semi‐dark chocolate, some licorice and cocoa. Nothing much.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours red-brown with a quickly fading, red-beige foam head. Sweet chocolate snout, some cocoa candies. Sickly sweet flavor, some dark bread, sugary artificial chocolate syrup. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sickly sweet finish, all dark sugar and artificial chocolate, a bit of well-done meat. I’m just really not sure there’s a good ’Sweet Stout’ out there. Please, someone, somewhere, make a decent Sweet Stout.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at Dahlbergs. Helsingborg, March 2012.
Thanks to PeaceRich for sharing these. Frankly one of the worst stout I’ve ever tasted. Aromas of skunky malts, wet hay and grains. Alcoholic taste with a small note of something toasted and soy.
