Easy going but really great stout. Just wat a stout should be. Lots of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, resins. Roasty, malty, deep. I don’t know wether this is a good tribute to the original Van Vollenhoven Stout, but it certainly is a tribute to the style.

erickok (3702) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 7, 2012
Pitch black body, tan head. Creamy aroma, butterscotch, macaroons, light coffee. Medium full body, pretty smooth and with a mild carbonation. Good, even fierce amount of hop bitterness over the inherit roasted malt aroma. Sticky ending. Classic feel to this beer. Good amount of flavour for the ABV. Really nice actually. (33cl bottle, cheap)

Benzai (8549) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Joes. Note: old bottle, best before 01-11-2008. Pitch black color, small brown head. Smell malts, a hint of coffee, a little musty and hay. Smells like cow-food. Taste malts, musty, hint of coffee. Clearly a bottle that’s been left in the cellar for too long. Low to medium carbo and body.

A great stout with an astringent bitter after taste. A hint of licorice. Tried this beer with Erol and Anouk at the Pilsner Club near the Spui in Amsterdam.
