COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Objectively … the best stout in the world! Savour it with your dessert - with an ice cream and spéculoos, for example - and close your eyes: it’s like entering a torrefaction workshop … This beer is the favourite of the brewer, who has always adored stout. “But I mean real Stout, not oversweet gassy liquids!”. With an aim of finding a fairly marked coffee after-taste, we have chosen to use the most torrefied barley malt that can be found on the market - Black malt at 1400 EBC. As this malt is a bit acrid, we have “corrected” it by using another slightly caramelized malt (150 EBC), and some brown sugar. So that the hops can exist alongside these strong caramelized and torrefied malt flavours, we have mainly opted for the strong American hop, Tomahawk."

Draft. A fine, fine stout indeed: velvety foam, terrific smooth body and a delicate oat-ish character. One of my favorite stouts, good to drink at all times, even non-fans of the genre are impressed.

Trolleo (1164) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 29, 2016
Completely dark body, big tan head. Gassy belgian sweet aroma, boring. Sweet sweet choco taste. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. Fine, i guess. //bottle from Magic Beer Room

rami_pl (1474) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Butelka, warka do 08/2017. Bardzo ladna i dosc trwala jasnobezowa piana na ciemnobrazowym piwie. aromaty ciemnych owocow w duzej roznorodnosci, nieco kawowe, nieco drozdzowe, czekoladowe, o dziwo wszystko w takiej rownowadze, ze zapach sprawia wrazenie kwaskowatego. sa tez dziwne i ciekawe nutki - cos a la delikatny ser plesniowy. W ustach bardzo fajna, puszysta faktura, nieco kwaskowate, dosc wytrwane, z posmakami gorzkiej czekolady. bardzo dobre

BeerViking (3848) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Belgibeer, pours dark red-brown with a fluffy head, red fruit and roasty nose, dry-sweet and lightly fruity, slightly ashy with dark dried fruit in the finish. Like a Schwarzbier /Stout hybrid.

fkoolen (832) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown, big beige foamy head. Roasted malty tones dominate with dark chocolate and coffee, dark red fruits (berries), grainy, bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation, (too) smooth mouthfeel. Decent stout.

pivnizub (9900) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2016
Butilka(750ml): Very deep amber coloured, loose but stable tanned head; sourish-sweetish nose, coffee, dried fruits and a certain mineralic touch detectable; moderate bitter-sweet and sourish flavour, soft and medium bodied; lingering fruity and coffeish finish, toasted dark malt is detectable as expected. Surely not bad, but all in all a bit disappointing…

Alusmamuts (1391) - LATVIA - MAR 9, 2016
Black with small beige head. Not too intense taste of roasted grain, some touch of fruit and coffee, certain hops bitterness on the background. Slight dried fruit aftertaste.
