Flaska från Beergium. Gravöl med kusin Mattias. Flaska som skummar över rejält. Svart vätska med högt, fluffigt skum i brun kulör. Fyllig arom, både av söt kola och riktigt mörk choklad tillsammans med kraftiga kaffetoner. Halvstor kropp. Något syrligare i smaken, med en del chark och ekfat. Fin strävhet tillsammans med lena chokladtoner. En del lakrits. Avslutar i rejält rostade toner med fin beska.

bonkiedeaap (578) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is almost black colored and has a nice cream colored head, with livingly CO2. The aroma is malty, sweet and spicy and has notes of caramel, liquorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste starts sweets with tones of malts, caramel and chocolate and changes into a nice and medium bitterness with tones of hazelnuts, espresso and roasted malts. In the finish the strong coffee (espresso) comes back and leaves a dry taste.

Antonio369 (106) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 33cl bottle, vintage 2014. Served in snifter glass. Poured a very dark brown, almost black with a 4 finger light brown head, very little carbonation. Waited a while for the head to dissipate to get to the aromas. Aromas of licorice, dark fruits, caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, nuts, port, oak, pipe smoke. Taste: currants, licorice, black fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, spices, caramel fudge, whole wheat raisin bread, walnuts, some sour notes in the back as found in the ’Oerbier’, very vinous almost portlike. Full body with a quite dry espresso and dark chocolate finish. Very sticky on the palate. Overall a very good, quite unusual stout from De Dolle Brouwers who have given their own ’dolle’ twist to this beerstyle.

imdownthepub (12664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Keg at La Capsule, Lille, France. Very dark brown with cream head. There is a full on darkly roasted malt body to this, quite heavy on the palate with a roast nut character. Quite complex with fruity hints and a light herby flavour then liquorice. Very enjoyable.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - FEB 18, 2016
33cl bottle. Cloudy very dark brown (rather than black). Fruity aroma of sour cherries, bitter chocolate. Highly sweet with a sour caracter. For me it is a carbonated version of a Struise Pannepot, very much more like a pannepot than a stout.

yourilevesque (1104) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2016
Un bière dégustée à l’apéro. Le liquide reste coi dans la bouteille au moment où saute la capsule. Je ne me méfie pas. Par contre celui-ci grimpe dans mon verre tel une fusée dès les premières gouttes versées. Une mousse explosive et ridiculement vigoureuse se forme tel un dôme dans mon verre alors qu’il n’y a pas un quart de pouce de liquide au fond. Une fois redescendue, au bout d’une minute tout au plus, aucune trace sur mon verre. Celui-ci est rutilant. Des arômes de réglisse noire, d’anis (non pas de badiane ni de fenouil, de la réglisse), d fruit noir, du sable poussiéreux. Ce n’est pas mal construit, mais j’aime peu. En bouche le liquide est franchement très mince. Des saveurs terreuses se mêlent à une acidité importante. Très sèche et courte, je suis à cheval entre le café noir, la fumée et la cerise de terre. Encore une fois ce n’est pas mal construit, mais loin d’être dans mes cordes.

Dark brown colour. Light brown medium head. Dark bread and roasted coffee beans in the aroma. Salty caramel at first. Black bread and coffee. Bitter finish. Not oily. Rather medium bodied. Medium carbonated. Well balanced and convincive.
