Black colour. Huge brown head. Liquorice and toffee aroma. The body was surprisingly light. Dry, very rostay flavour with notes of coffee. Bitter finish. A nice Foreign Stout, but I’ve had better.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Another huge stout: near-black pour with a minimal lightish head. Bold aroma of malt and fruit, approaching red wine. Tastes like strongly roasted malt with a wine/alcohol finish. An excellent stout!

Very dark brown color...opaque, with a medium light brown head. The aroma was unique...Belgian candy sugar, whiskey, dark (tart) chocolate, cough medicine, and some earthy tones. The flavor was more of the same with a distinctive roasty/smokey aftertaste. This reminds me of the first batch of Avery The Czar Imperial Stout...with it’s Belgian Ale/Stout characteristics. The feel was a litle thin for me...coating finish, but at the same time kinda dry.

thedm (4928) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 22, 2005
This bottled brew poured a very large sized light brown colored foamy fine to medium sized long lasting head that left behind a opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation and an excellent lacing. It had a mild dark malt aroma. The mouth feel was thick tingly and malty with a lingering tingly aftertaste with a nice malt bite to it. The flavor was malty with brown malt notes and some roasted toffee mild coffee notes thrown in.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2005
At ZBF 2005 Caramel-brown, creamy head, fully lasting. Tawny body, excellent lace. Light malts in the aroma (typical stout). Lightly sweet, heavily bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Pours with a black body topped by a medium thick, brown head with some lacing. The aroma is bitter yet malty with notes of alcohol adn a touch of sweetness. Rather mellow flavor...it’s a little bitter and malty with a slight roastiness. Full bodied and smooth.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Rocky balooning head that sticks around for the whole beer. Dark, but not a black hole by any means. Musty sour aroma with some hints of dark malts: chocolate, roasted, maybe Special B. Some alcohol presence ... not quite a stout, but not quite a belgian dark ale -- the roastiness makes it a definable stout. An interesting juxtaposition of two favorite beer countries.
