smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - MAY 13, 2007
pours dark with mahogany highlights. aroma is spicy and fruity with some choco/exrpesso notes behind. taste fruity/spicy as you would expect from belgium with hints of dark fruit caramel malt, expresso, and chocolate. the later two flavors are mostly expressed in the finish. this is really a blend between abbey dubbel and stout but still good.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Dark brown appearance, little head on it. Smells of sweet malts. Taste is very thick, slightly hot. Some decent complexity, but something I wouldn’t drink again. Not too much fun as a sipping beer.

Bottle at Novari Res. Pours black with a lasting creamy beige head but leaves only a bit of lacing, Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, chocolate and coffee in that order. Medium to thick body, average carbonation, medium to heavy sweet, light bitterness in taste, oily texture and a dry bitter and sweet finish. Excellent.

RomanW70 (297) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 22, 2008
Pours dark chocolate brown with a thick dark tan head. aroma of dark chocolates, malt, caramel, and coffee. Initial taste of chocolate and coffee sliding into a medium bitter coffee finish. Has vineouss notes as well. High carbonation. Finish lacks bitterness, but the complexity of flavor more than makes up for it.

Moolesen (293) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.

2013.02.10 - De Dolle Extra Export Stout - 11.2oz bottle in goblet glass. Bottle cap marked "Bottled JUN2010". Pours a very nice deep chestnut brown which becomes dark brown to black when the glass is full. Huge 1-2 inch foamy caramel head settles to about a 1cm lacey foamy head. Aroma is basic Belgian earthy yeast. You get some peppery notes, and some roast aroma. Mouthfeel is medium heavy. Carbonation seems adequate but possibly a little light. A bit of a creamy feel but it's mostly from remaining foamy head, though some is from the malt. Taste is nice. Malty sweetness is evident on the front end, and then carbonation, roasty malt and a bit of tang on the middle. spicy and perhaps a bit pepper on the middle. Little to no alcohol for 9% abv. Maybe a bit of licorice as other reviewers noted. A nice Belgian stout. Aroma 6/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 7/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 16/20
