4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - A dense off- white heads sets on top of a jet blacked body.
S - Fresh woody malt. Spicy Belgain yeast esters. Fresh green coffee beans. Sweetened dark chocolate.
T - Sweet dark chocolate malt, sour agave, over ripened apples, roasted grain, sweetened coffee, golden raisins. Has a roasted oat finish. Velvety smooth.
Very complex. You could drink this 10 times and not figure out everything. Just a well crafted brew. The elegant body matches the complex flavors. This is a world class beer.

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.
