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.

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.

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.

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.

Bottle at home picked up from Tesco. As "Guinness Antwerpen". Surprised i hadn’t ticked this before. A dark caramel brown coloured pour with a rocky mid tan head that fades. Aroma holds some sweet malt loaf, blackberry, jam, vanilla. Little meaty on the nose. Flavour is composed of sweet tangy brown malts, brown sugars liquorice and treacle, apple and dark berries, earth. Palate is medium bodied, frothy carbonation medium sweet with a tang in the finish. Archetypal for the style.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated body opaque black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was dark malt. The thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium mild roasted malt aftertaste. The thick flavor contained notes of roasted malt brown malt and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bottle, 330ml, as Guinness Antwerpen Stout. A deep black colour with a large frothy brown head. Aroma of dough, sweet malt, roasted barley. Flavour is deeply malty with coffee and some barley notes. Berries in the finish along with a little alcohol burn. High carbonation. Very tasty.

Bottle from Tesco online, Antwerpen Stout. Cunning rebranding! Dark black colour, off white foam. For me way overcarbonated for the style, almost fizzy. Roasty, slightly boozy, but something in there feels rather sweet maybe slightly underfermented. It’s ok but I’d have liked it drier, more bitter, more roasty and less fizzy.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2017 Butelka 330ml. Pite jako Antwerpen Stout. Ciemny ,prawie czarny kolor. Piana brazowa ,natychmiast zanika. Aromat raczej subtelny i malo intensywny z owocami na pierwszym planie i czekolada,kawa i slodami w tle. Dosc duza karbonacja jak na stouta. W smaku dosc slodkie z owocowa nuta dobrze zbalansowana przez kawe i czekolade. Rodzynki wanilia sliwki i czarna porzeczka.Bardzo pijalne lecz zapach troche rozczarowuje. Na plus alkohol dobrze ukryty.
