UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 10.08.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich, dark malts, licorice, cocoa, chocolate, caramel, rubber, broth, dark sugar, vanilla. Taste is slightly dry and grassy, dark malts, grass, licorice powder, cocoa, green soap, hay. Medium bitterness, thin mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little boring when it comes to taste.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - many thanks to Matteo for this one! Pours black-brown with a large, dark tan foam head. Lightly tangy dark malt nose, lightly floral, with notes of citrus. Moderately tangy flavor, light to medium sweet, with a bit of ash and burnt toast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly tangy dark malt finish with more ashy roast. Decent.

Bottle. Cheers to Colin (I think!) for bringing this along. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The aroma’s of cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg and spice. The taste is mildly tangy jammy red berries. Hints of peppery hot. Ashy chocolate body. Nice roasty dry finish. Medium/full body. Soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell. This was a good surprise. It pours a deep dark brown colour with a large beige head. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey with a definite tartness. Taste is similarly well balanced between sweet caramel, roasted malts, coffee flavours and the tartness. As it warms up the acidic character comes through and make this a very interesting offering. I didn’t see that coming.

this black stout is a very good one . Full body, nice taste of dark chocolate and cold coffee with a slightly bitter ending. It’s brewed in Belgium together with an Italian brewer. This kind of beer is one of my favourites.
