Well, wasn’t expecting that at all. I managed to read the word stout, but it didn’t look like one when poured. Dark brown in color with hardly any head. First taste is musky and dry, but hugely carbonated. A very nice sipper, as it would take a few of these to pick out all the flavors. Thanks to BillVanE!

Enormous head! Bubbled up over the top of the glass eve. Smell is of cake batter and brownie mix. Loads of chocolate with coffee and espresso notes on the tongue. Quite vinous finish, which means this bottle could have some age on it. The candi sugar is a beautiful touch, and adds greatly to the already creamy nature of this stout. I’d call it an Imperial Milk, Minus the Lactose, Stout. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and full. Gotta love these new school Belgian stouts. Did you know back in the day in Belgium they used to drink, for breakfast, stout with a raw egg in the glass? I know what I’m waking up with from here on out. Great brew!

deep and dark brown that is nearly the absense of color. what hit me first about this beer is the strength of the hopping, different for a stout. nose is simple drip coffe, candy, and hops. drinks smooth and with a hop kick to a finish. great approach to the style.

Molto abbondante e spumosa la schiuma, ottima persistenza.Profumo molto complesso alcoolico con note di caffè, liquirizia, legno bruciato e liquore di caffè. Sapore asciutto e denso, con forte impatto di liquirizia e caffè torrefatto. Finale alcoolico e durevole.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with an intensely thick head that took awhile to settle down. The flavor is interesting. A bit sweet, but with plenty of malts coming through with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Very lively with plenty of carbonation.

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.

Pours black with a gigantic tan head. Nice malt and chocolate aroma. Complex flavor of coffee, dark fruits, and alcohol. A strange beer but definitely worth drinking.
