Bottle, 6.3%. OK aroma of hard roasted malts. Very dark brown colour, red shine, seems clear. Stable tan head. The flavour is mildly roasted, dark malts, hint of fresh-ground coffee. A little paper in the finish.

pours dark brown, beige head.
aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and lightly yeasty.
taste, plenty of good roastiness here, light in body, some nice coffee and malts.
Light sparkly mouthfeel, thin and light with hints of dark fruits and yeasty. Reminded more of a stout than an old ale. Overall mouthfeel is just superb, highly drinkable.

bottle, pours dark brown, tall frothy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Flavors start crisp with lots of carbonation bringing a sweet malt body that fades into a lightly bitter roasted malt finish. Malt through and through. Nice brew.

The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, licorice, and the finish has some slightly dry citrus. It is very stout-like, smooth and nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 Re-rating after a much better bottle, also at Moeder Lambic St-Gilles. None of that out-of-place tartness from before. Incredibly roasty but quit dry and quaffable. Simple, honest stout. Grainy tannins are not unwelcome. Phenols are there but subdued. First rate: Bottle at Moeder Lambic. Pours black with tight-laced and very sturdy tan head. Lightly sweetish nose like cola with faint roasted coffee notes. Flavor has some slight lactic tartness and a subtly roasty backdrop, mildly bitter and going quite dry. Medium body, soft and airy carbonation. Pretty light. Interesting and attractive beer but it didn’t hit my sweet spots.
