I expected a little more. Its quite bland and boring actually. Its the usual stout flavor profile, but without the flavor. I know many better stouts. The only thing that makes this stand out a little is the typical Scheldebrouwerij salty (seawater) flavor added to it. Which works in some of their beers, but not in all of them.

Gangstergafje (867) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
The beer is clearly a stout, based on the looks. The color of the beer is dark brown with a lovely ruby red glow. It isnt black, like some stouts can be. It is slightly lighter. The beer is very cloudy. On top of the beer a lovely layer of soft, creamy slightly brownish foam is formed. The foam stays on the beer for quite some time. After a while a nice soft drape of foam remains on top. Good. The smell is nice, but not typical stout. There is a lovely firm malt aroma, giving some sweet caramel aromas. This blends very well with a sweet, creamy yeas smell. It doesnt have that toasty chocolate and coffee aroma from roasted malts, which normally clearly identifies a stout. I also smell some liquorice. The yeast aromas are clearly caused by Belgian yeast. It is a bit doughy, rather sweet and creamy. I also smell some plums. It is nice. But it has a bit to much Belgian touches and to little stout. Not entirely like the style should be, but it is very nice. The taste has the same. There is a lovely licorice flavour, strong malts, some sweet caramel touches and a hoppy bitterness. Also yeast is clearly present. All is in nice balance. The beer is mainly sweet. It is nice, but again not stout-like. Mor Belgian dubbel or something like that. Maybe a bit barley wine like. The palate of the beer is good. Medium body, medium high carbonation. The finish is nice. It is quite long and diverse. Nice sweet licorice and some creaminess at first and more bitters later on. Also some nice alcohol warmth. I like it, even though I expected more toasty stout aspects.

MarkoNm (2556) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 19, 2017
Pours almost completely black, topped with medium small beige ehad. Vanilla in the front, with some chocolate following. A bit of fruits later on. Plums and black currant. Sweet start, a bit chocolatey with some warming alcohol present. A bit yeasty feel in the finish with medium bitterness. Medium body, silky texture.

guzgorog (799) - FRANCE - FEB 11, 2017
Couleur brune fonce tendant vers le noir, mousse beige fonce haute mais de tenue moyenne. Nez assez malte, caramel, candi, une pointe de malt grill. En bouche, idem, plutt sucre, caramel, fin de bouche caf et chocolat. Corps dense, longueur moyenne, pas damertume. Au final a resemble plus une brune belge qu une stout, le caractre grill des malts est trop peu prsent, a ne trenscende pas les genres, dommage...

Inoven (478) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2017
Flesje gekregen. Diep donkerbruin helder bier met grof schuim. Aroma is fruitig en caramelachtig. Smaak van caramel, drop en fruit. Jammer dat de smaak snel wegebt.

Icedwarf (1424) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Zwart bier met bruin schuim. Smaak is krachtig, zoet en licht bitter met iets van koffie, chocolade en stroop. Best goed.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2016 Ziltig aroma. De smaak is zit lichte koffie en rozijn en een toets sojasaus. Redelijk eenvoudig, ok maar niks spectaculair. Hetzelfde geldt voor de afdronk.

Decent toasted/roasted maltiness, coffee, soy. Moderate sweetness with some bitterness. Decent, but nothing exciting
