PriorL (2796) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2013
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: very dark brown, almost black beer. Somewhat of a gusher, huge unstable brown bubbly head. NOSE: rather grainy, dark malts, rather sugary, liquorice. TASTE: too much sugar, not that balanced, somewhat sour even (intended?). Again rather disappointed in this brewery... Though credit for getting quite some taste in a stout with only 5,5%!

CanCrusher (758) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Dark, almost black beer with huge light brown head and lively or I could even say fizzy carbonation. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate and nuts. Moderate sweet taste and aftertaste, but still acceptable for me (although I donít like sweet beers). Carbonation is very strong in mouth, like drinking mineral water or cola with a lot CO2..

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 25, 2013
33cl sampled@B-home. - pours a promising opaque jet-brown with little head and rather watery MF and carbonation. Ominous sweet nose with distinct alcoholic tang for a stout of only 5.5ABV. Taste has some hop bitterness and light roast, but the caramel sugar and watery mouthfeel make this sub-par, and hard to take seriously as a stout.

Countbeer (5500) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle: Woohoo, just in time. After the cap is removed I was ready for the upcoming gusher, it poured black and brown an created a black beer with a big brown head that changes slowly into a fluffy big foamy island. Aromas of metallic, some coffee with milk, (roasted) malts, french fries, grains and some floral tones. Flavours of sweets like honey and brown sugars, some hints spices like bay leaf and a sprinkle of something clove/cinnamon a like, caramel, some bark, ligt roast, grass, light bitter, some cream and a sweet liquorice tone. Aftertaste is a mix of sweet liquorice, brown sugars, some sweet roast and grassy grains. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. Bit sweet, bit roast, bit stout, decent a would say, fits the style.

Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2013
So dark, deep black it doesnít let any light pass through; a dark brown/red head. Roasted scent with a touch of sour and definitely sweetness as well, really a smell of its own with plenty of character. The taste is a bit roasted, iron-like with again a bit of sourness. Thereís sugars in there as well, adding to the complex taste. Itís a little weird; not really heavy though a full taste. Itís often labeled as a sweet stout which is probably the most accurate way to describe it. Interesting taste though not for everyone and not something to drink too often either. The aftertaste is quite smooth but long lasting, could have been a bit stronger, though perhaps thatís too much to ask for seeing that itís only a 5.5% beer. All in all itís rather sweet, good and really original.

Swaroga (1826) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium tanned head. Nose : Chocolate, soap, cheese, some aromas of fresh coffee, apple. Sip : low to medium body with slightly oily texture. low carbonation. Overall this beer has a very little flavor in it. Not enough burned, not enough sweet, not enough smoky. Not even enough dry or smooth. All of that balanced with some strange apple background. Still all this is too balanced and mellow. The aftertaste is gone quickly.
