33 cl bottle. Quite possibly a 2010 vintage. Pours a dark brown with beige head that was nearly "gusher" level that faded to a thin wisp. Aroma is sweet malts with yeasty bread notes. Flavor is dark fruits, leading with prunes, plums, and slight coffee bitterness. Finish is slightly dry and bitter, with lingering black cherries. A certain Belgian yeast complexity is prominent throughout. A favorite for many years.

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Black with a huge frothy brown head and some lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, roasted malt, liquorice, chocolate and grapes/winey notes. Taste is also quite Belgian with yeast, liquorice, roasted malt, chocolate, grapes/winey notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Slightly mouthfeel. Long lasting fruity (mostly grapes) finish with a touch of alcohol. Good complexity as it’s almost always the case with De Dolle. Quite tasty. Balance isn’t bad either. Interesting for sure.

chucklemation (509) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours a jet black with a very foamy off-white head. Aroma is oak and malts. I also get a very strong oak flavor, as though this was aged in bourbon barrels for a while. There are some roasted malts, chocolate, and a decent amount of bitterness. While I do like this, it also comes off as a bit much in terms of the combination of oak and bitterness. There’s a touch of sweetness that goes too far, in a way, but another part that makes it a very nice sipper as it warms up.

Aroma: iron, toasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Appearance: dark brown/black, medium creamy beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: quite some bitterness expanding, turning dry in three average-long finish. Overall: great Foreign Stout, nice dryness. Pint at The Times, Ypres.

Osprey87 (1797) - WALES - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle, 18 months old. Dark brown with a huge foamy beige head. Aroma - dishwater, yeast, slight smoke, touch of booze. Body - medium to light, low carbonation, quite foamy. Taste - dank caramel, sweet date, red berries, milky coffee, finishes dry and tart with some alcohol. A bit weird - it has a sharp tartness that I assume isn’t meant to be there. Drinkable (slowly).
