kermis (11268) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2014
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.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2013
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.

Abijen (2512) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2013
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.

PriorL (3069) - 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 (935) - 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 don’t like sweet beers). Carbonation is very strong in mouth, like drinking mineral water or cola with a lot CO2..

sfhodense (4789) - Odense NŘ, DENMARK - APR 28, 2013
Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and dark fruity yeast. Flavour is sweet roasted caramel, dark fruit, light coffee and yeast.

bartlebier (3507) - 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.
