33cl bottle ought at the Brussels xmas market. Certainly the best offering out of the 6 beers that were available from Br. du Nord. Brune foncée, col moka laissant un fin filament doré au verre. Arôme est axé sur les malts, ici des notes de chocolaté, caramel, torréfié, pointe de noisette et subtile touche de réglisse. Palais malté, profond côté toffee tout en gardant un malt type belge-pâle qui laissant une fine amertume en fin de bouche. Le tout est léger alternant un agréable café-cacao avec une belle effervescence. Se termine toujours en gardant ce côté noisette et subtile touche de réglisse.

dandeman (553) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
Aroma: Roasting, coffee, smoked meat, with notes of black chocolate. Average stout nose sticking out moderately. Appearance: Opaque black, head is average, creamy and sparkling at the same time,long lasting with a little lacing. Taste: Coffee accents are dominant and texture is kind of smooth and oily. We can also find notes of roasted caramel. A good but not exceptional stout. Ça faisait 2 ans et demi que je ne l’avais pas dégustée et à l’époque alors que je débutais, je l’avais trouvée excellente. Aujourd’hui, après en avoir gouté beaucoup d’autres, elle m’apparait comme très acceptable mais pas exceptionnelle comme à l’époque.

Havent had this in years, my palate changed a lot. overall id say the same thing as their IPA Boreale never does anything spectacular or out of the ordinary but they make pretty good beer.

ACD (670) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 8, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours jet black with thin tan head; very light lacing. Aroma is liquorice, very light coffee, roasted malt and a fairly strong smoked note. Taste again mixes liquorice, molasses, and coffee - touch of light chocolate in there too. Again a slightly sweet smokiness is in there, almost reminiscent of a Rauchbier...but I've had a couple of beers before this so maybe that's down to a bit of palate fatigue on my part. Very light body for a stout - lighter even than dry Irish style stouts - so it actually remains pretty refreshing and easy going. Residual hop bitterness comes through and the smokey coffee notes stick around in the aftertaste for a while. Not bad at all.

341ml bottle. Nice dark black pour with a light brown head. Roasted malts, bit of molasses and lactose, chocolate, some caramelized brown sugar. Slight bitterness, moderate body and carbonation, more malt and chocolate. Nice.

Aroma of molasses, licorice, roasted malts. Taste of the same. No discernable hops flavor or aroma, but there is a balancing bitterness. Medium lasting roasty bitterness. Wish I could get it regularly in Ontario. Great go to beer.
