I am drinking a 3 year old bottle of Stouterik and it has held up well. It pours brilliant deep dark brown under a finely bubbled 2” lightly tan tinted foam collar. It has a big sherry nose with a whiff of toast in the background. Sherry, dark dried fruit with mild roast and traces of caramel and chocolate form the palate. It is very smooth, creamy and surprisingly light bodied with above average carbonation.

Billed as a stout, but tasted more like a lager with some caramel malt. Pretty drinkable, some nice flavor, but not the big stout flavor I was expecting. Overall not very exciting.

As the world of beer continues to expand, and is becoming more homogenous in taste, the classic stout of Ireland makes its way inland to Belgium as the De La Senne brewers try their hand at the dry dark ale.

Stouterik pours dark garnet, a smidgeon from black and red. With the nose hovering above, sweet char becomes pronounced with the character of burnt toast, dark chocolate, roasted nuts and coffee. Its taste of burnt sugar is characteristic of caramel and cola.

Across the middle, the sweetness quivers and the roast pulls forth- bittersweet chocolate pulls from the seared sweetness and highlights a calm nutty, coffee and cola taste as well. Woodish hops and aniseed spice play on the taste just ahead of finish.

Semi-dry and medium bodied, the ale closes with a sense of lightness (dangerously close to watering), light acrid char and campfire bitterness close the session even as colanut flavors persist in aftertaste.
