http://www.reuzenbieren.nl De ReuZ Stout, regionaal verkrijgbaar als Reuzenbieren Peer Poarel, is qua type een Belgian Imperial Stout. Een stout is vaak pikzwart , imperial wil zeggen dat het veel alcohol kent. De Imperial Stout was vroeger namelijk bedoeld voor de Russische tsaar, werd gebrouwen in Engeland en kon dankzij het hoge alcoholgehalte de lange reis doorstaan. Belgian is toegevoegd omdat deze stout een combinatie is van een stout met een Belgische trappist. Het bier kent een uiterst complexe smaak met toetsen van koffie en drop. Het heeft prachtig donker stevig schuim en geeft een warm alcohol gevoel. De nasmaak is lang, droog, bitter, moutig en kruidig. Dit bier moet u ooit gedronken hebben. U zult geen last hebben van de 9,5% alcohol.

Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts strong-malty, modest roasty with woody notes. Mild-fruity like raisins. Well balanced finish. Almost mild for an Imperial Stout. Nice!

Hermod (2805) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
33cl bottle @Helsinki Beer Festival 2014. BB 12/2018. Poured near black with a thin brown head. Aroma has licorice notes and roasted malt. Flavor is similar with licorice on top. Quite malty brew. Roasty, and gets abit salty at the end. Hint of coffee as well in the finish. Basic, simple stuff. Surprisingly thin for this ABV.

RW80 (341) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml. Appearance: black with a brown head, leaves quite some lacing. Aroma: Some roasted malts and grapes, not so strong for an Imperial Stout. Taste: tons of roasted malts, some light vanilla, chocolate and a little bit of grapes in the background. Aftertaste is more offee and mild bitterness. Thick body and sticky on the palate. medium carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Neutral smell. Appearance is nice and dark. Taste is bitter and dark chocolate. Drank again 26-3-14 with Masum at Kandinsky. Was a good beer. Still agree with my last rating regarding description, though I increased the final mark. It’s just a good beer. Begins with salmaniak but good dark beer typical taste afterwards. Just fine.

TrefwoordPunk (732) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
bottle 33 cl. Pours opaque black with a big khaki head and an aroma of wet earth, dark malts, chocolate, coffee and toffee. The taste is medium sweet with notes of candy sugar, yeast, some bitterness, dark fruits, heavy malts, coffee, black chocolate and it’s slightly alcoholic. The body is pretty thin for an imperial stout. Nice beer, but I know some better ones in this style.

Douberd (1693) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml. At home, poured into a snifter glass. ABV 9.5% Almost totally black, absorbing every light that tries to pass though. Tall and thick beige head, with good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Roasted malts on the aroma, black grapes, wine-like. Nice taste, tons of roasted malts, some light vanilla, the alcohol very well hidden. Lots of coffee and mild bitterness on the aftertaste. Thick body and sticky on the palate. Overall a quite good imperial stout, high quality for a low price. Recommended also as an everyday impy.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013. The chalkboard listed Reuzenbieren Reuz Stout, they had bottles, I assume that this was the beer I had. If I had indeed a new beer not on RB yet, please let me know. Black with a mocha head. Nose is mellow roast, mocha & coffee, slight metallic touch. Taste is bitter liquorish, coffee, sweet mocha, bitter herbal, candy, sweet coffee, chocolate milk & some roast in the bask. Body is not too heavy & creamy. Nice. More of an RIS than Stout taste-wise.
