"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."

cphbeerking (154) - København K, - JUL 9, 2008
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.

Ulysse (389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
Medium to low roasting aroma. Light brown head looking like a galaxy made of large bubbles in a space made of tightly knit micro bubbles. But the space adventure is short lived. Well-balanced stout. No exotic flavours just the good ol’ roasted malt.

weark (539) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au Grain d?Orge - De couleur noire avec une bonne mousse fauve qui diminue assez vite mais pas complètement - Au nez des arômes de café, de malt torrefié, houblon terreux, une pointe d?alcool et de sucre - En bouche des arômes de café sucré, de houblon terreux, légèrement réglisse, toujours cette pointe d?alcool - Corp moyen, amertume moyenne, carbonation pétillante, douce et amère, final café sucré - une stout typiquement belge, le sucre apporte ces pointes d?alcool pas toujours agréable mais apporte aussi ce côté doux et sucré qui la differencie des stout anglaise ou d?autre pays
