Stouterik

After I sampled the lovely Noir de Dottignies in Chez Moeder Lambic, the waitress recommended I try a bottle of Stouterik. It’s from Brasserie de la Senne here in Brussels, makers of Zinne Bir.

Stouterik is, as you’d guess, dark. The initial mouthfeel is slightly thinner than I expected, though after a Noir de Dottignies, almost anything would be. The taste of Stouterik is bitter and quite raw, with notes of sawdust, burnt caramel, stewed apple... no, stewed sour cherries. Then, in the aftertaste, I get Raspberry leaf tea.

Not bad at all.

  1. I think this is a grand beer, the 'thinner' mouthfeel makes it quite drinkable on a night out for a dark beer. Try it at home with oyster beignets or braised chicory - really good from an innovative little brewery's take on what I understand to be a typical Brussels style.
