For those who don’t like an overly aggressive stout this the stout for you. ABV is not overpowering makes for a good year round stout. I would buy this again not on my top of the list beers but for sure an easy go to beer.

Such a good beer. I got it in the 750 ml bottle. The 2 Row barley, torrified wheat and oats give is a silkey mouthfeel. The roasted and chocolate malt and the generous portion of dark caramelized candi sugar contribute to the apperance and aroma, and the Belgian yeast combines it all to such a great palate.
I will be getting this one again..

As Belgian style stouts go, this is a very well balanced beer. It is a very smooth drink that avoids any type of hoppy finish. If I came came across this at a bar I would for sure order 2 or 3 :-)

On tap at MacGregor’s Greece. Dark pour with minimal head. Nose is standard - dominated by roasted/toasted malt, a touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel starts oily and sweet then turns dry and grainy as it is held in the mouth. Interesting, I liked it. Chocolate malt taste in the palate.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
APPEARANCE - nice black body, super light head.
NOSE - mostly Belgian on the nose initially.
FLAVOR - surprisingly light flavor considering the advertisement on the bottle of roastiness.
NOTES - good, but more like a Belgian than a roasty dark beer.
