Similar to the traditional Guinness, but this belgian variety lacks body. Aroma is nice. Bread, cereal and toast. Color is very dark with a good head. On palate, bitterness dominates, but here is where it becomes different. It felt watery and weak. The only distinguishable hints were toast, a little coffee and lots of hops. I’ve tried Guinness before and I love it, but this particular variety lacks the features that make this beer so distinguishable.

Dégustée dans un verre Mille et une bières,belle robe brune opaque surmontée d’une mousse de couleur crème assez persistante avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de chocolat,fruits noirs avec des notes vineuses.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec un agréable velouté mêlé à une fine amertume qui se prolonge en finale nous laissant sur une sensation de légèreté et de complexité.Un ensemble très harmonieux nous donnant envie d’y retourner!

Dégustée dans un verre Mille et une bières. Température de début 9 à 10°. Superbe robe opaque de couleur ébène surmontée d’une mousse crème à grosses bulles et plutôt persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez très plaisant et subtil mêlant les arômes de torréfaction et les senteurs fruitées et houblonnées. Le goût est riche et complexe: café, fruits noirs dans un équilibre idéal; en deuxième bouche d’autres saveurs de chocolat se révèlent discrètement et une agréable amertume se profile. La finale est longue, légèrement astringente et sans la moindre lourdeur. Délicieuse comme un Irish blues de Rory Gallagher!

330ml bottle of Antwerpen Stout, from Tesco, Warfield. An opaque mahogany coloured pour with an amber glint and a loose beige head; rich aroma of mollasses with a touch of spice; taste of burnt sugar with some coffee and licorice; and a cinder toffee finish. rather good.

Great stout but lacks it's own unique flavor. Body is not strong but we'll balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamesie1857 (2111) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
330ml Antwerpen from Tesco - Solid black body, thick tan head. Looks great. Nose is burnt grains and nuts, lots of coffee grinds, bit of smoke and liquorice. Taste is fine, not as powerful as expected, a little muted version of all the aroma notes. Good mouthfeel though, big and syrupy. ABV well masked.

"Antwerpen Stout" Bottle at home, all alone. Roasty, fruity nose. Notes of cherry, raisin, cinnamon, cereal, strawberry. Full bodied and chewy. Roasted malts, wood, berry jam, molasses, vegemite notes. Long complex finish, with sweet woody flavors developing.

3.9
J_man (996) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 18, 2017
This was labeled "Antwerpen Stout". NIce roasted malt aroma. Dark brown body with a ruddy tinge and thick tan head. Cocoa, dark chocolate and raisins in the taste. Fuller bodied than regular Guinness and a definite alcohol bite. Still has some of the original Guinness flavor with more roasted notes and dark fruit. Very nice heavy stout.

Sircatis (284) - FRANCE - MAY 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2017 Achetée au Hyper U de Sierentz. Bière noire à la mousse beige. Nez caramélisé, et whisky. En bouche elle est ronde, on retrouve le caramel et le malt. Très bonne bière.

3.8
Cokemonkey11 (845) - - MAY 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours black with a thick brown foam residing like ice cream. Scent is medium notes of caramel malt and brown sugar. Taste is consistent with light sour properties. Finish is dense and smooth like an ale of much higher ABV. Lingering notes of proper fresh malt. Great.
