Alengrin (2180) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2014
One of the very, very few ’newer’ sweet stouts in Belgium, a style once introduced by the English and very popular in especially West-Flanders, but since then all but disappeared. This one shows a thick and dense, deep brownish beige foam, stable, on a very dark ruby beer, almost black, revealing its red skin only under very bright light and only around the edges. Chocolatey and caramelly aroma, candied dates, raisins, grassy hops, brown sugar, pear, cinnamon, faint hint of coffee far away in the background. Sugary and caramelly sweet taste, soft and mellow, somewhat fluffy, estery fruitiness, a bit cloying in the finish with a very low hop bitterishness. Should indeed be evaluated as a sweet stout, which is a very different thing from dry or other stout substyles, and in that style this is one of the best I tasted so far.

Poured dark brown with a huge beige head, almost a gusher. Aroma of dark fruit, dark chocolate and roast malt. Light to medium body, flavour as the aroma, candy sweetness.

Een lekkere stout, niet de doorsnee stout, maar ik vond het wel iets hebben.

Moolesen (208) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a small brown head. Surprisingly there was almost no aroma. A bit of alcohol is though present. The taste is a bit disappointing. Not what I expected of a stout. This is a thin variant and is not lasting long. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the beer, it’s just not fitting to the style in my opinion.

corkyrory66 (648) - 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...

SimonBeer (102) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
(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

Importerad från Belgien på flaska. Mörk, nästan svart i färgen. Doftar kola. Tunn lite spritsig och mycket söt smak
