3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(De Dolle Extra Export Stout) Bottle at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9%
Totally black pour, with a huge dark brown head, really thick too, with very good retention helped by its size as well, leaving spots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma has hops, fruity notes, light roasted malts, very appealing and inviting.
Taste begins with a light acidity, then fruity touches, hops, leaves, chocolate, light coffee. Well hidden alcohol. The finish is what’s good here, as the acidity fades away and all the chocolate/roasted malts/coffee flavours dominate.
Medium thick body with good carbonation.
Very good, even better after it saat in the glass to warm up and breath a bit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
black like used automotive oil, with a warm, rich brown head, moderately fine, a cm thick, settles to an attractive film a couple mm thick. Aroma is coffee and hazelnuts, slightly sweet maple syrup and candy, some herb, soil, and forest floor. Body is medium-light with a very creamy mouthfeel. Fine, moderately intense carbonation. Flavor is Earthy wet leaf, coffee twinges the back of the palate (like a dry stout), herbs, and a slight, warm nuttiness in the finish. Hint of fruity (cherry) English yeast flavor as it warms. There aren’t many export stouts I’ve had in the last two years to compare this with. Reminds me of Guiness with a more complex, earthy flavor and some more sweetness. The candy, maple syrup, hazelnut notes in the aroma and the top-notch creamy-light body are the defining characteristic of this beer for me. Dank leaves are interesting, but don’t serve to make the beer more appetizing.

scurissima con schiuma marrone a grana grossolana,molto persistente..aroma tipico da stout (quasi imperial) ma il tostato era meno forte e si sentivano tantissimo i lieviti belga..gusto un pochetto troppo di liquirizia a centro degustazione,ma l’amaro finale (comunque non eccessivo per essere il Nugget) bilanciava il tutto..nemmeno troppo carbonata,è andata via con piacere!
