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.

Found a bottle as a last one ( back of the fridge ) in a bar that wasn’t aware of the different versions. luck, I guess? Pours dark brown, very big white head. Smell is intense, roasty. Taste is roasted malts, some dark chocolate. dark fruits, indeed. very rich, yet a bit simple. Not silky, as I love in stouts, and has ( still) a certain level of bitterness I love in IPA’s, but not in stouts. A typical Belgian stout, of far above average quality, but Belgian stouts are in no way a match to what is being brewed in the rest of the world...

Kolor nieprzejrzy?cie czarny, Piana be?owa ?rednio wysoka, trwa?a. Aromat ciemnych owoców, kakao i kawy, jest troch? wanilii i lekka nuta cytryny. Smak jest powtórzeniem aromatów, kawa pojawia si? pierwsza dalej s? pralinki z nadzieniem kakao dopiero na ko?cu ciemne owoce. Goryczka delikatna, kojarzy sie z gorzkim kakao. Wysycenie ?rednie, alkohol schowany perfekcyjnie.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Vintage bottle tasted at 666 in Uccle near Brussels. Creamy, loose, off-white head over a deeply bronze beer, but not opaquely black. Pleasant aroma of home made caramel, chocolate and cocoa, bourbon, raisins, banana, sherry-like oxidation and walnuts. Candied sweet onset, but not too sugary or cloying, candied dates and raisins, banana, strong hearty umami flavour, soft carbo, roasted and caramelly malts, bittering and rich, toasted bread, peppery hops and brandy-like alcohol in the finish. Belgian style stout, not as roasted and ’dense’ as many other stouts, but a very good beer for sure.

RexTalionis (3522) - 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 (945) - 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.
