Bottle @ home. Dark brown to black colour with a medium sized beige head that doesn’t last very long. Smells roasty, red fruits, slightly sour. Tastes roasty, sourish, some chocolate, hint of mint. Medium body, soft carbo. Kinda weird, not bad but also not how I prefer my stouts to be. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2012
Big smoke when opening... Pours a deep black body and big foamy tan head. Nice! Interesting aroma, with a mix of roasted malts and pecan nuts at first, a light funky fruityness later. Light resin, some lemon even. Strangely, only some reviews here many notice of that sourness.. Taste is richer than I expected. Not an impy of course, but rather a well drinkable yet roasted and interesting drink. Long licorice aftertaste. Quite a positive surprise for me!

Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7%
Totally black in colour with one finger of thick head, dark brown in colour, with surprisingly good retention. Thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma has a ton of roasted malts, some light chocolate, a hint of black olives too.
Great taste with liquorice in it, again a ton of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, light vanilla. Nice bitterness on the aftertaste.
Thick body with the correct amount of carbonation. Really dry on the palate.
Really good beer, can easily stand next to stouts from better known breweries. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle from Bierkoning. Black body with slight head. Nose of licorice, malts and some vanilla. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, licorice. Sort of all over the place. Quite a prickly stout. Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from a Dutch supermarket, thanks to Craftmember. One of these ’virtuous’ beers with double names from this brewery. Thick, dense, pale yellowish beige head retaining very well, colour very dark reddish chestnut brown, blackish in overall appearance but transparent on the edges. Pleasant, typical stout aroma of bitter chocolate nibs, coffee grounds, burnt toast, beef stock, bayleaf, subtle hints of salmiac, wet leather, iron shavings (but feeling ’natural’ here), dried banana, vanilla and cigar ashes. Despite being characterized as a dry stout, it kicks off with a dense, almost candied, yet restrained sweetness, a bit liquorice-like, along with raisins, baked banana and candied dates, but drying as the liquid travels over the tongue, with a slick, oily, caramelly, nutty and deeply toasted malt body with soft carbonation, turning roasted in the end with a lovely, profoundly ’fondant chocolate’-like bittersweetness further bittered with late but quite assertive, spicy, leafy hops in the end and a dash of warming, but non-disturbing alcohol. I love a good stout and this surely is one, makes me curious about the rest of this brewery’s range.

33cl, at 7.5%Vol, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2011, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, not complex dry Stout, roasted/malty and slightly spicy, yet balanced, hazy, small head, nice brew MarcoDL (5468) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Bit better than the other beers from 7 Deugden. Decent stout with the usual notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Has a more rich taste than the other beers from this brewery. tricksta_p (5341) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. A bit on the light side and easily drinkable. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is sweet with a touch of licorice. Taste is a coffee assault with an aluminum tinge. sjogro (4999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2015
Tasting bij mij thuis. Soepele stout met lichte vleug barley zoetheid (of dat is de nasmaak van de vorige, kan ook). Maar lekker iig. Backlog from 2014/12/12.
