   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
Demise (57) - Wellington, - MAR 17, 2009
Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Coffee and roast malt aromas dominate, with caramel and dark chocolate notes and a hint of alcohol on the nose. Roasted malt and coffee flavours hit immediately, moving though to the sweeter characters of caramel, dark chocolate and an almost syrupy alcohol taste. The finish is very bitter, however, with burnt malt and a smokey finish giving the beer a real kick to end. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is a bit unpleasant, with the mix of alcohol and bitter malt leaving a syrupy-burnt flavour lingering for quite some time. A lot of flavour and a smooth texture make this stout very enjoyable and surprising, the aftertaste just leaves a bad impression.

330ml bottle from Tesco, Fermanagh (£1.68):
This one was a very nice beer from Guinness & easily one of the best, if not the very best, that I've tried from the brewery so far. There was a lot more complexity to the beer than anticipated with it coming through quite rich & sweet, plenty of chocolate & darker fruits featuring alongside some nice coffee & roasted flavours. It was a balanced & smooth offering that went down much easier than I thought it would & it's definitely a beer that I'll be on the look out for again.

Lekko palone, wytrawne, dość mocno alkoholowe, jak na takie piwo. Szału to nie ma

(bottle as Guinness Antwerpen Stout) Velvety, highly-alcoholic stout. Very warming and embracing. Goes down easy. Got for £1 in Tesco, discontinued.

blariacum (173) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2017
Flesje. Natuurlijk gewoon goed, al blijft een getapt glas altijd te prefereren (en dan t liefst in een pub in Ierland zelf). Mooi van smaak, zacht smakende stout, mag minder zoet.Die 8% viel trouwens niet eens op, klasse, want de alcohol overheerst op geen enkel moment.

Beese (3051) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
330ml bottle from Tesco Extra, Watford (as 'Antwerpen Stout'). Black, with a beige head. Nice toasty aroma, very dry flavour, with big burnt notes and dried fruit. Slight boozy hint at the end.

Cimbasso (927) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Sampled as Guinness Antwerpen Stout in a bottle from Tesco’s. Black with a thick, creamy beige head. Deceptively easy to drink the high ABV is quite well disguised. A little sweeter than regular Guinness but with a vast amount of bitterness and roasted flavours. Complex taste of dark chocolate, strong black coffee, leather and wood and a long and lingering aftertaste. A really excellent stout.

Kinda malty... brown color. Medium mouth feel. Nutty and a sight bitter. Bottle

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Bought under the label Guinness Antwerp. Thick, strong and creamy very good take on a Belgian strong ale

Boothman (21) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Not much on the nose, but touches of blackcurrant liquorices. Pours opaque black, with a tan head (same colour as the original Guinness). Tastes of gorgeous roast malt, hints of liquorice, black treacle, slightly cough syrup, great mouthfeel and without a hint of the 8% abv. Slight fizziness. Great stuff.
