3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was not a bad beer at all, but I canít say Iíve had anything else from this brewery. Found it at Penafidelis, a Portuguese cafe around the square from Moeder Lambic in the Brussels neighborhood of Saint-Gilles. Poured a nearly impenetrable black with a tall, tan head. Faint, sweetish, roast-malt nose with some fruity notes. Lightly sweet flavor (again, those dark fruit notes) with a thin layer of dark-roast bitterness (weak, black coffee) that carries the finish. Thin for a stout, but thick for a dunkel. Average carbonation. Quaffable, in the end.

Surprising that a country that produces mainly boring pils can come up with this one. More like a stout than a dunkel it was slightly dry with some roast flavour that really lingers. Very drinkable and highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black colour with just a little bit of brown head. A slightly sweet smell, although not particularly strong. The taste has initial notes of coffee followed by some bitter, slightly sour notes and then a sweet, malty aftertaste. Itís not particularly full of flavour, considering the style, but itís still quite pleasant. I could definitely drink it all night.

Bottle. Pours nice dark with a deep red edge. A small fizzy beige head. Sweet aroma with a roasted edge and a feel of wet dog. Low carbonation. Flavour is surprisingly fruity with a light roasted edge - quite dry bitter at the end. Round but a touch thin.
