Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 7, 2015
Deep dark brown color with a nice lasting light brown head. Aroma includes chocolate, toasted malt and coffee, with some alcoholic notes. Flavor is a balanced combination of sweetness and bitterness. Body is average and the carbonation is high. Long bitter and carbonated end.

ShivanDragon (2300) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
rood/bruin met minimale kaki kraag. aroma van caramel en veel héél veel donker fruit. smaken zijn redelijk zoetig, veel donkere fruiten, wat caramel, iets koffie en geroosterde mout. Nou niet echt een typische Stout, eerder qua fruitigheid en zoetigheid neigende naar een bock maar dan één met koffie en wat geroosterde mout. er zit wel smaak in... mwah

adamnowek (717) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2015
Pours just like a cola with a slight red tinge in the brown. Notes of espresso and malts. Really warming alcohol.

Leepe_steven (202) - Lede, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2015
Pours a dark ruby red beer with beige head. Does not really look and taste like a stout to me, its more like a quadrupel.

tricksta_p (2079) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2015
Aroma of dark malt, caramel, yeast, hint of coffee. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bitter finish. Not much of a Stout, but a decent Belgian Strong Dark Ale.

ontzettend matig bier dit. je kan er doorheen kijken. slap zoet en niet echt een stout te noemen. misschien goed voor een instap stoutje ofzo

thirstyrabbit (1458) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown body, small head. Medium hoppy aroma with sugar and mild roast. Something metallic too. Medium yeasty taste with a mild roast. Damp cellary malt and hops in the finish. High carbonation. No real character. What stout? This is an unremarkable Belgian dark ale. Please quit your false advertising.

Rammer (360) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 28, 2015
An Imperial Stout is not very similar, most Belgian strong ale. Density is not enough. Coffee, Belgian yeast is.

Bosbouw (1944) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Donkere chocolade bruine kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt zoetig, drop, en nog iets. Smaakt zoetig, laurier, drop. Raar biertje.
