Dark color, almost black; creamy beige head. Light roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor, a bit creamy; does it have some some smoke? Maybe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of lightly roasted malt, smoke, light chocolate, some coffee, a little vanilla. Flavour is slighly roasty, chocolate, smoked. Thankfully sweetness is kept to a minimum. Very smooth and easily drinkable Stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A smooth stout with trapist leanings. Little bit of smokiness in there, some soft fruity tones as well. Palate is smoooooth but not sickly. At it’s best at room temperature. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 66cl bottle. Pours an hazy dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Chocolate, malt, wood and roasted in the aroma. Average to soft carbonation and medium to full oily body. Taste is dry, medium bitter and with some vanilla notes. Overall, a well balanced beer with an interesting complexity.

Bottle. Good stuff, smoky spiciness, bit meaty, lots of roast, with little bit of sweetness at the end but subtle. Almost lemon sherbert like.

Subtle vanilla aroma, pours a very dark Brown with a light head. Subtle taste with a hint of vanilla, with a strong wood aftertaste with a hint of smoke. Very full beer with a complex taste. Every sip brings a different experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
65cl bottle shared@1st Freiburg Tri-state tasting, chocolate mousse pairing. Very appealing fluffy chestnut brown pour with mocha head. Some vanilla, beechwood, whipped up roast in the nose, with a very fresh, yeast-enhanced feel to it, almost as of a Wit. More yeast dryness in the taste provides that trademark DvdK subtlety, meshing in roast, whisps of ash smoke, dark chocolate and vanilla without shooting them onto the palate. Yeast-astringent finish, almost some tartness. Inwardly brimming with character, rather than bombastically exploding with adjuncts.
