corkyrory66 (1007) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Stout artisanal de 5,5 % abv, avec sucre et épices. Couleur quasi noire, d’une opacité totale. Grande saturation au décapsulage, mousse caramel bien constituée avec texture d’oeuf battu en haut. Arômes de malt noir, candi brun, zeste d’orange, mirabelle, pierre à aiguiser. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur du malt foncé, pain noir (de la guerre). Arrière-bouche pas très harmonieuse, plutôt plate. 2ème avec un très mauvais assemblage de saveurs. 3ème sur des fruits trempés à l’eau. Arrière-bouche assez fade. La longueur ne relève rien. La levure est d’une ligne faible. L’alcool est banal. La finale est nulle, sans envol, sans harmonie. CONCLUSION : bière très basique, à la limite du banal. Les abeilles (de bij) volent très bas ici … (il suffit de voir l’étiquette...) Mais on trouvera une pure merveille avec la « zatte bie », donc pas de regret...

(Drinking date: 30 June 2014) The beer keeps foaming and foaming.... woow. The beer looks good. Very dark brown to black, with beige foam. Almost no aroma. Bit sweet aroma. Very sweet, honey-like taste, with bit of metal. Also bit of liqorice in the taste. I don’t like it.... Mouthfeel is good. Flat to medium carbonation with medium body. This beer will go through the drain after I finish this rating. It ends with a total score of 2.8

Flaska från Belgianbeerz.com. Mörk nästan svart vätska med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar fantastiskt, typ pecannöt kolaglass. Smaken lever inte upp till doften. Lite sliskig men ok.

Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Gushed a hazy dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is earthy peat dry light resin hop. The flavour is medium to strong sweet with a light creamy malt yeast bubbly palate. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. A real sugar bomb. I can feel my teeth rotting already!

Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a big bubbly beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, alcohol, yeast. Flavor is heavy sweet like spoonfuls of sugar have been poured in. Some lactose, chocolate and fudge evident in the palate. Light bodied with high carbonation.

The Belgians find it hard to let go their trademark sweetness in this beer. This stout is way too sweet.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. Bottled on 03/2013. Ruby very dark brown with fizzing away beige head. Smell is very grainy, cocoa powder, grainy chocolate, roast & something off, metallic, liquorish, something fermenting spoiled,… Taste is bitter grainy chocolate, high carb, thin metallic, thick liquorish, old chocolate, huge sweet banana, overripe, touch metals, touch honey, light minerals in the back,… Grainy cocoa & too high carb. Ah, messed up stout.

Pours a dark brown beer with a huge rocky head. Smells malts and yeasts. Also bit metalic. Tastes very sweet, metalic and honey. Damn sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.
