BlackHaddock (5635) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
Shared from a bottle on 5th Feb 2016 at the 4th International Beer Swap in De bierboom, Brugge. I thought this very highly carbonated, not a gusher, but not far off. It poured a very dark brown/black, the head a lively off-beige. The nose was all about the yeast with some dark fruit esters vying with a malty chocolate trace to calm the yeasty dominance. The taste followed the aroma nicely, yeast first, dark malts second with the fruity element a poor third. Fairly dry finish but to ’fizzy’ for a Stout in my eyes.

@ Bryssel 15-10-30: Ganska tunn vätska och ganska torr munnkänsla. En viss het smak med toner av trokadero.

kraddel (5559) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle . Pours dark brown, foam rises out of the bottle . In the pour its rather small though, and it dissapears completely within a minute . Smell is Sweet, copper . Taste is bit sweet, some bitterness, some very hidden coffee character from the roasted malts. Very overcarbonated . Alcohol is very hidden . Taste is balanced, complex a bit as well , but the intensity is not at all what it should be for 11 ABV . Just as well as the mouthfeel . I would have guessed this beer was about 6 ABV ... Nevertheless, an enjoyable beer.

Leighton (17193) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle shared at Gainsbar with Bruce and Colin - Kortrijk, Belgium. Pours clear, red-brown with a tight, tan cream head. Lots of ripe, dark fruits on the nose, some grapes, raisins, dates. Hugely sweet flavor, very boozy, with burnt toast, dark fruits. Full bodied with average, high carbonation. Sweet and hot on the finish with burnt earth bitterness, more raisins and other dried fruits. Quite heavy. Not very cohesive or drinkable.

mikske79 (1381) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - SEP 5, 2014
Een stout die heel zoet ruikt en de smaak heeft dat vergelijkbaar is met een saisonbier.

Yves (2757) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Alone at home. Dark brown colored beer with large diminishing brown head and only few carbonation visible. Rather malty roasted and smoked aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is very smokey, alcoholic, fruity hints ending bitter dry.
