solidfunk (3673) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2014
A wild kind of stout. Some roast malt, something that tastes like wild sour cherry, a little chocolate and a very robust smell all around. Pours black with very huge initial foamy head and some decent lacing. Finishes bitter and sour in equal big parts. A touch of booze in finish. Great foreign stout - getting near the Russian empire. Thick palate, low carbonation. Bottle.

northropfrye (2148) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Haven’t had many Belgian stouts and this is about what one would expect from one. Dark body with brown head, loads of head, a gusher. Roasted malt and tart funky notes as well. Taste is somewhere in between a stout and a flemish red, sour finish, also belgian sugar sweetness, cherries. Abv well masked. Cool and interesting beer.

Ragnampiza (346) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 12, 2014
330 ml from Birsciop, served in a snifter. Bottled on February 2013. Pitch black colour, no light passing through, with a huge, frothy, forever lasting dark beige head. Intriguing aroma, with tons of spices (cinnamon, vanilla, liquorice) dark fruits under spirit, sugar cane and a bit of booze. Some grassy hops as well, surprisingly after almost one year of the bottling date. Perfectly balanced in the mouth, with the roasted and chocolaty department on one side, complemented by a sweet, alchoolic and slightly tart/sour quality on the other side. A bit of smoke and ashy sensation on the tongue. Average carbonation, on the higher side of medium body, and oily finish. Some trace of the alchool during the aftertaste, but absolutely pleasent. A classic.

Frovigalning (2928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Fruity and yeasty smell with some chocolate and coffee. Similar taste. Roasted bitterness and some burned bread. Quite harsh mouthfeel. To much roasted malts.

JFGrind (1837) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Thick tan head, darkest brown full bodied Belgian style Stout. Chocolate, roasted malts and underlying sourness. I liked this Foreign Stout, had all the qualities true to style.

brinehart (206) - Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Oily dark and thick. Coffee and dark chocolate abound, with good hop balance and a touch of sour/funk keeping it interesting. Maybe Brett? Lends a sour pie cherry note, making the beer somewhat black Forrest like.

EddyBeer1 (849) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2013
Noire, effervescence moyenne, col brun moyen. Un peu de tout pour ce très bon stout: du corps, du café noir, du pain grillé, de la réglisse, du chocolat noir et un peu de fruits foncés. Excellent!

Plovmand (6320) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. 2006 edition. Pours pitch black with a dense creamy brown head. The aroma is chocolate, deep roasted malt and ripe dark fruit. The flavor is only light oxidized and has notes of prunes, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts and raisins. A little sour malty touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
