Wauw, this beer is powerful! It’s very bitter (that’s what I like) and you can compare it with dark chocolate of 80% cacao and coffee. It also contains a little bit of soy in the taste, which realy completes this beer.

Drank with Tijs, Thierry and Rik at home 21-12-2014. Beer has lots of carbonation. Taste is fairly one dimensional, dark like coffee and chocolate. Taste is fine but not that comprehensive or rich.

Moolesen (271) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.

dark brown / almost black color. unfiltered. very tense long lasting head. coffee colored head. smells malty, light smoky notes, light chocolate, fresh, light yeasty, light spices (cloves). medium body, light fruit notes. malt bitterness overlays and dominates all other tastes very quickly. very intense and long lasting bitterness. a bit too bitter and overwhelming for me.

Douberd (2829) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
(De Dolle Extra Export Stout) Bottle at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9% Totally black pour, with a huge dark brown head, really thick too, with very good retention helped by its size as well, leaving spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma has hops, fruity notes, light roasted malts, very appealing and inviting. Taste begins with a light acidity, then fruity touches, hops, leaves, chocolate, light coffee. Well hidden alcohol. The finish is what’s good here, as the acidity fades away and all the chocolate/roasted malts/coffee flavours dominate. Medium thick body with good carbonation. Very good, even better after it saat in the glass to warm up and breath a bit.
