Draft to 2 tasters at Dutchs. Pours a clear cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, hints of dark fruit and subtle vanilla, very drinkable, smooth, I would get this again.

33cl bottle from Geers in Oostakker, consumed some months later.
It’s a WHAT?! This is about as much a "Foreign Stout" as my dawg is. (I don’t have a dawg, or a dog.)
OK, now you suggest it, maybe ....
Up till now I was thinking it is best brown ale I have tasted in a decade. Hey ho. Maybe it is just the vanilla softening the roast. Or does that make it not so good?

On tap at Dutch’s. Very dark brown, near-black color. Thin tan head with great retention. Leaves great splotches of lace. Wonderful dark chocolate, nice earthiness, light to moderate smoke. Some mild vanilla bean, but not the ridiculous sweetness you get with American vanilla stouts. This has a moderate bitterness, and light to moderate sweet, not at all cloying nor sugary, decent dryness to it. Lighter body, mild chewiness. Lighter carbonation. Mild slick finish. Suprising swiggability to this guy. Makes for a nice one to enjoy a pint pour of.
