akbar (4) - ITALY - DEC 23, 2009 does not count
Very sweet, cidery, wine, sultanine and above all honey (may be acacia) taste. Light brown foam, dark opaque color, cherries, sultanine, some note of vinegar in the nose. A very nice disovery for a stout!

Zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is zoet met iets van anijs, drop en vanille. Erg goed.

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.

Countbeer (6192) - 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.

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