3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It pours a very dark brown, almost black and yields the same color body in my chalice. A small soft filmy one centimeter tan head appears and dies within fifteen seconds. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen. No lacing is seen. The smell is very complex and inviting with some dark chocolate coming in very lightly along with some banana and raisins. The taste brings back the dark chocolate, banana and raisins yet also has a bit of roasted coffee. The alcohol comes out a bit as the beer warms. The palate is about a medium to heavy with nothing bad on the tongue. It gets pretty creamy and the carbonation is light all around. Overall, I’m glad I tried it and am pretty sure I would have this again.

Not very aromatic in my opinion. Taste a bit like caramel and coffee, clean, crisp finish. Light body. Meh.

Very carbonated in bottle. Deep black, smooth and creamy, not overpowering. Initial Belgian character that fades quickly.

Very good, not much of an aroma, what I found on usual. However it tastes like a very good stout. Smooth finish.

Pours a translucent black with medium head and minimal lacing. Aromas of bourbon, sweet citrus, and chocolate. Taste of sweet malts, licorice, raisin, and honey. Nice Belgian stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice black pour w/ a tan head that leaves a good ring of lacing. The aroma has a light roastiness to it. The flavor is fairly complex. The chocolate is quite soft & the finishing bitterness is mellow but it makes for a well rounded beer. I love the silky smooth mouthfeel. A very solid beer overall!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml. bottle poured in to a snifter. Dark brown colour with a dense, lightly tanned head. Roasted aroma with caramel, coffee, chocolate, liquorice and a typical Belgian yeasty note with an almost sour impression. More delicate than it sounds like. Taste is light sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted bitter with liquorice and yeasts. Very pleasant and smooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Veramente ricca e gustosa, con un corpo setoso e un gusto prevalentemente dolce, con note di canditi, cioccolata, caramello e una speziatura indecifrabile. Delle stout ha ben poco, ma non si può certo definire una dubbel belga, quindi liberiamoci del basso istinto a classificare e apprezziamone l’unicità!

Bottle to glass. Pours dark brown out of bottle with small tan head. Aromas of yest, malt and spice. Taste of chocolate roast and coffee followed by a bitter spiciness. Creamy and full bodied with lively carbonation. I really enjoyed this. Would buy again.
