"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.

Ok. I really don’t remember rating this, but there it is - marked as Saturday, the note saved while I was at the Magic Beer Room, so that makes sense. Dark brown body, tan head. Nothing marked by a mixture of yeasty and chocolate notes, both in the taste and the aroma, and a marked "no". So, yeah, not impressed. Should rerate, perhaps.

Bottle at Moeder. 7.6% Stout 2014 Cazeau Tournay Noire a bit of heat, medicinal, big umami chocolate stout sweetness and a bit roasty. It gives me balanced roastiness with chocolate chip cookie notes. A decent stout. 3.6

Ysok02 (466) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
Un très beau Stout à la robe noire, mousse crémeuse, un nez marqué par le caramel, le café, un coté lacté. La bouche est à la fois fraîche et crémeuse avec une finale sur l’amertume du café. Un beau stout équilibré.

Bottle shared at Leighton’s gaff. Picked up ages ago from God knows where. Back of the cellar probably about 5 years old. Reddy mahogany brown coloured pour with a lasting cream coloured head. Aroma is sweet biscuit, Belgian yeast, strawberry, cakey malts, little paper. Flavour is composed of spicy strawberry, nutty malts, little age, papery, but not at all bad.
