lamas (1400) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2005
11.2 oz. bottle. Hazy, thick dark-brown pour with HUGE effervescent dark-tan head. Roasty malts, chocolate, anise, plums, pears and alcohol in the nose. Carbonation is VERY high. Starts off with roasty, malty sweetness along with some hints of licorice and chocolate. Finishes with some bitterness and yeastiness. Pretty warming alcohol flavors throughout.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2005
When I poured this beer it looked a beautiful ebony black with a thin tan head. The aromas were a rich chocolate with a fainter scent of caramel malt. The taste failed to impress me though, as it wasn’t like a stout at all. The flavor was malty sweet with very high carbonation. There was also the strong tate of alcohol as if someone was trying to make a champagne version of a stout beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2005
dark brown, big foamy light brown head. fruity aroma of fruit candy, pears and dark chocolate. Flavour starts yeasty and fruity of apricot and pear but dry bitter notes of chocolate and black chocolate is getting more appearent in the finish. Long bitter, burned and yeasty finish. A delicate stout!

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
Not yer typical stout by any means, there’s a great Belgian laughing under this heady foam. Dark as night, full of delicately burned notes, De Dolle can pour me a stout their way any day.

desurfer (1233) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2005
Nearly opaque brown with some cloudy yeast, whopping tan head. Aroma is very ’Belgian’; yeasty, fruity, vinous, and sweet. Flavor is odd but tasty...like a Westy 8, all the complex vinous and fruit flavors, but with roasted malts. Interesting and delicious.
