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.

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.

tomekk1978 (1278) - Z±bki, POLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Aromat: wyraźna czekolada chyba we wszystkich odmianach, do tego kakao, wiśnie w czekoladzie, spotykane raczej w mocniejszych stoutach, alkohol, nieco kawy, melano czy palności. Bardzo fajnie skomponowany. Byłoby nieźle, niestety po dolaniu wychodzi wyraźna kwaskowość, (obecna także w smaku), której być nie powinno, bo sugeruje problemy.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa / jasno brązowa, od drobnych do grubych pęcherzyków, potem redukuje się do tych mniejszych. Ogólnie bardzo obfita (jakby przegazowana), ale umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: niestety wyraźna kwaskowość i nadmierne wysycenie, co sugeruje, że piwo może być niestety stare. A szkoda, bo zapowiadało się bardzo dobrze. Mimo tego nuty czekoladowe czy palone są nadal wyraźnie wyczuwalne, wsparte alkoholem. Goryczka alkoholowo- palono- ziołowa jest w okolicach średniej, drażniąca i trwała. Krągła pełnia, wysokie (zbyt) wysycenie i kwaskowo popiołowy finisz z wyraźną nuta alkoholową. gdyby obniżyć wysycenie, a kwsakowość zastąpić słodyczą byłoby zapewne całkiem udane piwo. Obawy miałem już na początku, bowiem na butelce nie znalazłem żądnej daty przydatności do spożycia.

StoutHead (941) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours completely black with a huge tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and fruit. Taste is of roasted malts, fruits, lots of hops, spices, coffee, licorice and sugar and yeast. Medium to full body and high carbonation. Bitter and burned with a nice roasted finish that has that De Dolle tartness to it. Pretty damn good.

leghorn99 (205) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 16, 2016
Bellissimo l’aspetto, di colore nero impenetrabile; sontuosa anche la schiuma, compatta, a trama fine e cremosissima, molto persistente, di colore nocciola. Al naso sentori di mirtillo, mela verde, una leggera speziatura, orzo tostato; man mano che la birra si scalda emerga anche una leggera acidità (lattico). Annusandola ad occhi chiusi, difficilmente verrebbe da dire che si tratta di una stout. Anche il gusto è abbastanza particolare, ci sono le tostature, c’è qualche lieve nota di caffè e cioccolato che ogni tanto fa capolino, ma c’è soprattutto una marcata acidità lattica affiancata da note rustiche e terrose. Il gusto, poco pulito, è nel complesso gradevole e l’acidità fa sì che questa birra dal 9% di grado alcolico si beva con una facilità commuovente. Il finale è ancora più sorprendente: leggermente salino, una nota di pelle/cuioio, con un retrogusto morbido ed etilico di frutta sotto spirito (prugna, uvetta) e tostature.
