Sweet: malty, caramel. A bit metallic and watery (considering this is a stout). Not a very good stout, but its not a bad beer.

Deep dark with small of head. Extremly sweet with some stout hints in the quickly vanishing finish. More malzbier than stout to me.

Very decent. Nice roasted flavours and aroma, somewhat caremal-ish and slightly hoppy. Nice lingering finish. Fairly low carbonation.

bixo (4) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2017 does not count
Ruikt naar donker fruit, pruimen. Alcoholsmaak iets te sterk, had iets bitterder gemogen. Globaal gesproken had dit bier iets stouter moeten zijn.

PowY (651) - AUSTRIA - MAR 4, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a tan colored head. The aroma is medium malty with roasted malt (toffee and chocolate) and lightly yeasty with a light fruitiness. Medium to full body with a medium carbonation, a light bitterness and a medium sweetness. The taste is full of roasted malt, lots of chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, raisins, nuts and some coffee in the aftertaste.

A bit of a netallic aftertaste. Seems also a bit too sweet. Other than that everything as promised, malty, coffee, caramel.

Zilverenmaan (150) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2017
Taste rather sweet chocolate, coffee, alcohol. It might be hindsight but it has a bit of a seawater quality to it ( the oysters? ). No bitterness, taste fading quickly. Nice but as a stout a bit underwhelming and too alcoholic.

Gangstergafje (1036) - 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.
