COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Roasted malts give this stout its classic chocolate, toast and malty taste, and contribute to chocolate notes and a hint of roasted coffee in the aroma. The Black is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and refermented in the bottle with the methode champenoise to make this beer truly unique.

Pours a dark brown, not black, color. Head is very foamy, and it stays for a while. Very lager-like malty taste. You can taste the roastiness, not much coffee but a little bit of roasted oat. Lots of fruit flavors, but Banana is the dominant note. Fairly sweet stout - it definitely lives up to its name of being a Belgian Style Stout.

Smooth and silky indeed. Great stout, I could keep this in regular rotation during the winter if it wasnt so hard to come across. The oats really thicken the mouthfeel and when combined with the opaque body you would really think you were drinking and imperial stout. Very nice.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Dark body with a small tan head. Flavor is bittersweet, hoppy and roasty. It has that distinct Belgian sweetness and yeastiness as well. Finishes smooth. Im definitely a fan of Foreign Stouts; the combination of Belgian characteristics with big chocolate and coffee roastiness is a winner.

swoopjones (5602) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2008
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Pours a pretty dark cola color. Aromas of roasted malts, cocoa, coffee. Light body but nice flavor. Mild bitterness, sweetness in finish. Has a little strange twist probably due to Belgian yeast. Pretty good

josarah (111) - Hinesburg, Vermont, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Draft at brewery, This is a hard beer to categorize, not really a stout but darn close. Roasty fragrance, light brown head, deep brown color. Nice beer, but nothing exceptional.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Draft...I was hopeful about this beer. Very dark in color, very much like a brown more so than a stout. Average sweetness. Little head. Carbonation was minimal. Alcohol not really noticeable. One thing I did not like was that it went flat quickly. May try again.

750 ml bottle. Black pour with a medium sized, light brown head. Roasted aroma. Flavor has hints of chocolate and roasted malts. Just ok.

Mohogany black with big amber head. Rich, deep dark malts, bitter chocolate, molassas, burnt toffes, a little funky...slight sour wood, powder sugar, cocoa, carob...

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Almost black beer with a nice tan head. Light roasty, light yeasty, caramel malt aroma. Light roasty, coffee, caramel flavor with earthy yeast and a bit of woodsy hops. Medium bodied. Lingering earthy yeast, caramel, and light roast. Lighter than other Belgian stouts, but nice.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a deep brown to almost black with a lacy white head. Aroma is roasted malt and that unmistakable Belgian yeast characteristic. Taste is a wonderful experience of light roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and Belgian yeast, remaining smooth throughout. Finish is crisp and the alcohol isnt noticeable in the least. Very enjoyable experience, and another hit from our boys in Maine.
