750ml bottle pours a black color without much head. Medium bitterness a little harsh and lingers after. Overpowers the malt.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is nearly black colored a pours a large cream colored head, with a average carbonation. In the aroma a nice palate of cacao, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, hop notes and some dark fruits in the background. The taste is full bodied, to start with the sweetness of dark fruits, to end in a nice a pleasant bitterness from the cacao and bitter chocolate. The finish is dry and light bitter which is very pleasant.

APPEARANCE: deep dark brown color and opaque. average light brown head with good retention. TASTE: moderate roasted grains flavour with notes of coffe and cocoa. low bitterness with an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a commercial stout with good aromas and flavours that would benefit from a fuller body.

Nose is chocolate, coffee, plum pudding. A black hole of a beer, no light escapes. It makes the room darker. Light brown head turning to soapy film. Taste is zingy on the tongue, body is quite light (Australian stouts tend to be light bodied). Aftertaste is dark chocolate leading to lingering hop bitterness. Really good. At 6.3% hides it well. You could drink these like lagers then have a little sleep. Goodnight...........

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer with a thin beige head with a malty aroma. Smells stronger than it actually is, too. At first I thought it was going to be really sweet but that soon makes way for toasty malt. The fruit does linger but the initial tartness doesn’t, thankfully. It’s rich, balanced and gets better as you go alomg. Really good.

Rica stout, de las que beberías varias seguidas, de color negro casi total con tonos rubí, la espuma poca y de color marrón clarp, muy equilibrada, me empieza sabiendo a caramelo/toffee y el retrogusto a cafe, y según va cogiendo temperatura (al menos en mi caso) el retrogusto tiraba a ratos a chocolate negro, excelente para esta época del año, y gran relación calidad precio
