Bottle; Pour is murky brown, with a modest khaki colored heat into this glass; it retains average / above average, with some light spotting present. This is what you want out of the style ; the nose is licorice, spice, coffee bean, with sweet bread and a certain nuttiness present. The flavor profile reveals a cola like body and carbonation ; moving to grasses, light smoke, chocolate, caramel, with some grassy hops and a bit of licorice. It has a lingering finish that has a nice feeling -

Nische (652) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a huge tan head on it. Nose is slightly roasty with some very subtle non-sweet chocolate notes and some hints at some licorice. Taste is slightly sour with some subtle roasting in there.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Typical Belgian stout, sweet and full of extra ingredients like nuts, licorice and spices. Good one.

Silvan7 (655) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 27, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 bottle @ home. schiuma beige abbastanza grossolana per una stout, molto persistente. birra di colore marrone scuro riflessi ramati, velata. aroma abbastanza intenso fruttato di ciliegia acerba, luppolo vecchio, un po’ di tostatura ed un odore acre che ricorda le fermentazioni miste. Note di zucchero di canna grezzo. il gusto è totalmente diverso. intenso e persistente è abbastanza acido, dolce abboccato poi sul finale amaro da tostatura. si riconoscono caffè, noce e liquirizia. molto carbonata, corposa, ha un ottimo equilibrio, infatti i 9 gradi sono scomparsi, ma non é totalmente armonica. annusandola ci siaspetterebbe tutt’altro. sembra una belgian dark strong amara... stranissima ma molto buona.

Bardzo dobre piwo tresciwe i przede wszystkim palone i moze troche za slodkie w pierwszej chwili, ale potem przechodzi w dlugi wytrawny finisz i lekko gozki. Piwo niesamowicie wyglada, czarne jak prawdziwy stout, piana bezowa i lekko brazowawa, gigantyczna i drobno pecherzykowa, rosnie w oczach, do konca utrzymuje sie. Polecam milosnikom dobrych stoutow.

Réservée uniquement à l'exportation, de plus en plus rare, un brassin d'exception, à déguster sans modération.

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - NOV 10, 2013
33cl bottle into tulip. Lille. Appearance: dark brown with slight ruby tint. Tan head with good stability. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, spice notes, alcohol. Taste: on the sweeter side with a nice bitter coffee finish. Palate: full body from very active carbonation. Somewhat tingly on your tongue. Good long finish. Overall: not what I would typically consider a stout, but very good jut the same. A very nice aroma and flavor are this beers best attributes. Feels very warm in my stomach.

rikstar (686) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2013
0,33l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Donker bruin met gistdeeltjes. Brood en hop in de geur, smaak is wat wrang en droog. Lijkt ook erg op een barley wine, jammer maar deze tussenweg tussen een barley wine en stout komt niet helemaal uit de verf.

mikedR (1101) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2013
A good Belgian stout, but I still think the American stouts have them beat. This one is nicely nuanced, with good stout malt base and an initial sweetness that gives way to a coffee-flavored dryness before surfacing again. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel tho for the ABV. Overall, B+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Schwarz, schöne beige schaumkrone, eher stark karbonisiert, malzig kaffig im aroma, im geschmack und nachklang kafferöstig, abgang etwas rasch und "fad", mässige bittere ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
