COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at Jandrain-Jandrenouille for NovaBirra in Braine L’Alleud by Emanuele Corazzini of NovaBirra. Big Mama Stout La Big Mama est un stout de 6,2% alc. Les malts utilisés lors de son brassage lui confèrent sa couleur noire intense et de délicieux arômes de café et de chocolat. En bouche, elle développe une douceur maltée balancée par une amertume délicate. Bière au goût évolutif, elle se bonifiera au cours de la première année de garde en cave. Elle accompagnera à merveille un moelleux au chocolat et coeur de fruits rouges.

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.

RexTalionis (2590) - FINLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours near black in color with a nice and steady off-white head. Roasted coffee and dark somewhat bitter notes in aroma at first. After that appears some hints of nuttyness and dried dark fruits. Lots of roasted notes in taste with additional notes of some licorice and dark fruits. After awhile some slightly bitter and green herbal notes gets to one. Cocoa and coffee with subtle fruity citrus notes in finish.

Dark brown to black with nice tan head, aromas of chocolate and coffee, good balance between sweet malts and light bitterness. complex and well crafted.

StoutHead (685) - DENMARK - OCT 19, 2014
75cl. bottle. Pours a very deep red color - almost black, with a two-finger foamy light brown head. Aroma of malt and coffee. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice, fruits and yeast. The finish is dry, bitter and a bit sour. Medium body and average carbonation. Well, it looks great in that bottle and with that label, but after two years in my cupboard I’d hoped for something more. It’s a bit boring really - not bad just not anything special. I think it gave me more pleasure looking at the unopened bottle.

Bottle (at Craig’s?). Pours black, nose is chocolatey, taste is sweet roast chocolate, too fizzy.

At moedic lambic, on tap. Coffee, chocolate, toasty. Good depth. Not the intensity of an imperial stout, but excellent.

oliodnb (369) - ITALY - APR 10, 2014
Dark reddish brown, beige uneven fluffy head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, red fruits and some dough. Very rich taste, a lot of roasted malts and chocolate again with a lot of coffee, sweeter than what expected. Some hops in the finish.

Draft at Chez Moeder, rated from memory. Black w thin head. Roasty bitterness with some mild smokey notes. Decent stout - especially for a Belgian which is rare!

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium to big beige head. Aroma of licorice, dried fruit, chocolate, pumpernickel, bread and light ash. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, bread, light ash and dried fruit. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Quite OK.

Bouteille(750ml):Deep brownish-black coloured, big loose tanned head, solid sweetish-bitter chocolatey and fruity (dried red berries) nose, hints of vanilla and chocolate cake; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and relatively soft; lingering soft sweetish chocolatey and fruity finish, caramel included, followed by a bitter aftertaste. Very fine and well crafted stuff…
