Bottle from Dépanneur Rahman. Pours a thin looking dark black with a hefty tan head, though the bubbles are kind of ugly, and with the volume I’m suspecting it’s infected, but fortunately it didn’t gush. Aromas are… unexpected. Old cardboard, smoke, and some berries?. Rather thin, and oddly sweet, with more off flavors. Finishes with a bit more smoke, grain, and cardboard, and more berries. Better than I was expecting, but nothing crazy.

Tap at Vices et Versa. Deep black beer. The aroma is quite interesting. Lots of heavy dried/charred fruit. Intensely fruity with a heavy brown sugary sweetness. There is a bit of tarry, black licorice and a lingering herbal spiciness. A bit of cinnamon and clove in back of the chewy, sweet dark malts.

1,89$ for 341ml. I personnaly think this stout is somewhat unique, but not all for the best. The aroma is more of caramel than other stouts I had. The texture is a little thin, even close from watery. Carbonation is a little strange, like patched fizzyness. Chocolate and espresso are obvious but an also rather unique kind of bitterness, interesting and long-lasting, dominates much of the mouthfeel. A good stout, distinct, that offers something different than many bland stouts. But I don’t like it that much...

Bottle. Pours a dark black pour with a quickly disappearing head. Aromas of roasted malts & chocolate. Could swear i had olive but who knows. Smooth tasting, little light bodied. Not real complex at 4,8% but solid.

341ml bottle in english pint. Poured black with big beige head fast gone. Aroma is strong roasted malt, light cofee and bit chocolate. Less powerfull than many stout I had. Quite some carbonation. Mouthfel is not bad but carbonation makes it lighter than many other stout. Taste is quite discrete for a stout. Nice roastiness. Slight bitterness on the finish. Ok overall. Quite drinkable but a bit simple. Straightforward but nice. Rating #60

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2009
Good, dense dark-beige head over black beer with a suspicion of purple-brown reflections. Black chocolate aroma, as well as cigarette:ashes and dry-roasted malts. Balanced by a sweet smell as from hard <i> speculoos </i> cookies. Very dry, ashy-roasted taste, with only a glimpse of sweetness, and a serious hoppy kick at the end. Roasted character remains dominant, but there’s a lot going on underneath, with a nice acidic stout-lining. Excellent balance. Medium bodied, spritzy but not overcarbonated; initial dryness turning to velvety lingering. Excellent light stout, amongst the better in its class; well worth searching out. <i>Many thanks for ferreting out and bringing over this gem, I&I ! </i>

Thanks MartinT! Black body with a small brown lacing head. Roasted aroma with coffee, dark chocolate, some vanilla. Medium bodied, dry with tons of roasted grains, dark chocolate and coffee. Some wooden character in the dry finish and aftertaste.
