Onslow (1438) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky black brew with two fingers of tan head, great head retention and lacing. Nice aroma of toasted grain, a little smoke, coffee, wood and caramel. Taste follows aroma. Surprisingly light and agile palate and lack of booziness. A really excellent twist on the Guinness stout I’m familiar with.

Bottle, as "Antwerpen." Dark brown, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, lactic twang. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, minty hops. Medium bodied, well balanced. Nice.

Bottle. Near black with one finger head. Roasty malt, chocolate, dark fruit, smoke and some black licorice. Slight bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Jabic (443) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Ar: Medium-intensity char and pineapple esters; light diacetyl and some tannins. Ap: Deep brown with red highlights, clear where light reveals highlights; medium-large tanned brown head with good retention, leaving an airy, fluffy cap of foam. T: Sweet burnt caramel and medium-low diacetyl; medium bitterness, herbal and very earthy; heavy roast, tar-like; phenolic smoke on the finish, with lingering bitterness and blackstrap molasses. P: Medium-full body with medium carbonation, medium-dry finish. O: Big stout with a fair level of complexity, including char, smoke, and dark caramel; some diacetyl, but not unbalancing in light of the style and yeast character; sweetness is nice, melding well with the dark malt, sugar, and fruit flavors.

hershiser2 (2516) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottled as Antwerpen Stout. From Total Wine & More - West Richmond. $2.99. Pours nearly black with a small tan head. Nice aroma - raisins, chocolate, smoke, honey. Flavor is similar- raisins, chocolates, honey, light smoke, light coffee. Quite fucking tasty. Why isn’t this the Guinness that’s all over America? Lightly sweet finish...

Bottle. Very dark with tan head. Smells like good dark bread with honey. Flavor follows with some lemon. Lightly bitter.
