Strong roasted coffee aroma ... nice! Ruby color, brown head, fair lace. Sweet, very strong flavors, coffee, roasted, overwhelming. Strong, full, soft, little alcoholic. Wow! So at least one brewer over here knows how to make a good stout!

Dark amber color. Strange aroma: malt, caramel, sweet, some phenol, sea water. Quite good, balanced, with some sweetness, caramel, liquorice… A light, undefined, original note.

very dark colour, nice foam, very burned flavour, but nothing further going fot it at all. Not to present it with shellfish at all, you could use it for beefstew's.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Brewed for the world famous beershop 'De Bierkoning' at A'dam)
Fully opaque black-brown, with purple shine; brown, dense & fine head. Sweet, liquorice nose, "jap", but with an edge. I dare not define it, but of course my ego screams "oystersauce". Taste is not really sweet, touch of bitterness and absolutely some saltiness. But the main characteristic is a smoked flavour, aromated as from charcoal or burning wood. Retronasal it reminds me of aged beer with saccharine;.. full bodied, very slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol remains hidden. Original, great idea. Certainly not the world beater in its class, but the merit of its existence suffices for me.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An opaque brown beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is sweet with hints of sourness, prunes, and chocolate. The flavor is very complex on a background of sweet malt it combines prunes, raisins, chocolate, licorice to end on a nice bitterness from a good hop.

Bottle. Acidic and dry for the most part. Smooth mouthfeel, with some light roastyness in the finish, was expecting a bit more, but then again i’ve never really come a across a Dutch stout that has been truly outstanding. I thought this was quite nice though.

Sweet aroma with sea-ish notes. Beer is almost black, small brown head. Quite sweet, malty, slightly salty as all Scheldebrews. Very nice long roasted finish, with alcoholic burn. This brew is just another confirmation that Schelde is a top-3 brewery of the Netherlands IMO.

Alcoholic aroma with notes of pruels and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate and a bit of salty liquorice. Very smooth, soft texture with caramel. Palate of dry fruit. Dark cloudy brown color.
