Bottle. Metal, grape juice, copper, blood, sweet pennies. Too sweet. Tastes like drinking a beer out of my change jay. Pass.

It doesnt taste like beer. There is a slight smell of stout. Smells and tastes too sweet. The taste of sugar hides all the other aromas/flavours. Right in the sink.

Zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is zoet met iets van anijs, drop en vanille. Erg goed.

Bierridder_S (796) - BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2016
28/12/2015 @home - 33cl bottle from Prik & Tik Edelare. Very dark brown with massive head. Way too much carbonation. Nose is dark malts, licorice, Sugar. Taste is dark malts, some licorice very sweet. However the heavy carbonation is spoiling the taste. No roast, no coffee, no mocha, heavy carbonation ruining the taste experience, but cant call it bad either

erickok (5689) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2015
Brown body, huge foamy head. Carbonation springs into your face. Burned and brown sugar, tea, absolutely sweet. I dont mind it so much, except the taste gets a bit annoying. Half a bottle would have sufficed. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)

kraddel (7034) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle . Foam rises, but doesnt gush . Pours dark clear brown, enormously big white head . Smell is bit sweet , dark sugar . Taste is sweet, metallic . Not much going on accept for the metallic sweetness . reminds a lot to their tripel Ive had earlier today ( also pure metallic ) . Simple, not complex. obviously not tasting as it would have been in the head of the brewer . Some fine touches like dark sugar, earthyness . Too high carbo , as expected . Again - just like the tripel - its obviously failed, but enjoyable in a weird way. It doesnt taste BAD , just not what youd want from a stout or any beer in general

Borresteijn (6670) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2014
33cl Bottle at Tripel. Almost black colour, big beige-grey head. Aroma is very sweet, saccharine, milk chocolate, fruits. Flavour is also very very sweet, light malty, saccharine, sugar, milk chocolate. Unpleasant, way too sweet.

Alengrin (4895) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2014
One of the very, very few newer sweet stouts in Belgium, a style once introduced by the English and very popular in especially West-Flanders, but since then all but disappeared. This one shows a thick and dense, deep brownish beige foam, stable, on a very dark ruby beer, almost black, revealing its red skin only under very bright light and only around the edges. Chocolatey and caramelly aroma, candied dates, raisins, grassy hops, brown sugar, pear, cinnamon, faint hint of coffee far away in the background. Sugary and caramelly sweet taste, soft and mellow, somewhat fluffy, estery fruitiness, a bit cloying in the finish with a very low hop bitterishness. Should indeed be evaluated as a sweet stout, which is a very different thing from dry or other stout substyles, and in that style this is one of the best I tasted so far.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2014
Poured dark brown with a huge beige head, almost a gusher. Aroma of dark fruit, dark chocolate and roast malt. Light to medium body, flavour as the aroma, candy sweetness.
