COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Panty we want to be a rich stout that is still an easy drinker. Roasted, caramelized and some rye malts enhance the body of this beer. Together with Cascade hops the flavours of Panty are mostly roasty, chocolately and licorice-like.

Gangstergafje (1273) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2017
18-11-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Plus supermarket in Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands). Hmmmmmmmm, what an extremely good looking beer. The beer has a Stout look like a Stout look is supposed to be. The beer is literally pitch black. With a very strong light behind it, a ruby red glow can be seen. Lovely. On top of the beer a rather thick and froth layer of light brown foam is formed. Foam retention is good, very good. Unofrtuanely this makes it hard for the beer to propel all the aromas. I will describe the flavours at firs, since the foam layer keeps all the aromas inside of the beer. The taste of the beer is lovely! It has been a long time since I had a good tasting Stout like this one from a Dutch brewery (in my opinion most Dutch stouts lack a bit of power, body and depth). This one is very nice. The beer is filled with strong malt flavours. I taste a strong bittersweet chocolate flavour, that is really pure. This is accompanied by some nice coffee flavours, some plain roasted and toasted barley and just a touch of liquorice. Amazing. Those strong and dark malts give a good load of bitterness and sweetness. Hops give a nice fresh touch to this. Not to strong, but just enough to enhance the malts and to balance them out a bit. Lovely. After many minutes, when the foam has somewhat settled, the lovely aromas of this stout are unveiled. They are quite similar to the taste. I smell the same lovely malts, overflowing the nostrils with lovely bittersweet chocolate, toasted and roasted barley, a touch of coffee and a minor hint of liquorice. The chocolate also comes in a creamy chocolate milk touch, that is extra nice. Love this one. Hops are a bit stronger in the taste. They give lovely floral and fruity notes. There is also a touch of berry. The hops go along with the chocolatey malts remarkably well. Lovely. The palate of the beer is nice. The beer has a medium-full body. It is not as full as some stouts can be. The texture is a bit thin and carbonation is high. I think that this is the 'easy drinker' factor. Might be nice for the peeps that ain't big on heavy stouts, but for me it is a bit weak. I like my stout to be full and soft, but thats just a personal preference. The finish of the beer is fine. It contains some bittersweet chocolate at first, but it is followed by a quite bitter dry thing...that lacks a bit of balance. This gives the beer some room for improvement. So, all in all, a nice beer, but the palate is a bit to average for me. For me this could be improved, to make it a 5/5 beer instead of a 4.7/5 beer, which is a great score already.

Marrón muy oscura, opaca, casi negra. Muy abundante espuma ocre, que le da un gran aspecto aunque la retención no es muy buena. Deja película bastante duradera. Rico aroma, tostado, con notas de chocolate. En boca presenta gas abundante, excesivo para el estilo. Paso un tanto aguado, y un sabor agradable, malteado, de amargor contenido, y notas de chocolate.

Surprenante cette Oedipus Panty, mais malheureusement cela ne convainc guère pour un stout. Surprenant en premier lieu en verre avec une effervescence très marquée formant une mousse beige de plusieurs centimètres d'épaisseur et mettant du temps à s'atténuer. Belle robe noire profond. Derrière la mousse, le nez est plutôt appréciable avec des arômes de café, caramel et chocolats parcourus par une fraîche amertume. Surprenant ensuite à la dégustation car la forte effervescence ne permet pas aux arômes de café et chocolat de se fixer. Ce stout possède un corps et une ampleur en bouche très limitée de fait. Surprenant également car il possède de plus une acidité marquée sur la première partie de la dégustation qui en complément de la forte effervescence donne de la fraîcheur mais casse les autres arômes (café, chocolat, café et blackberry) et l'amertume qui de base n'est pas très intense (IBU de 30). L'alcool quant à lui, à 6 % Abv, ne structure pas assez l'ensemble. Le sucre est peu dosé, et même pas assez important pour donner un peu de densité à l'ensemble. Heureusement le final finit sur une note un peu plus intéressante. celui-ci, relativement long, est sur de belles notes de café, simples mais belles. Finalement, j'aurais presque du attendre 30 mn que la bière perde de son effervescence avant de la déguster.
