UPDATED: JUL 22, 2005 Very light brownish red color with a great looking beady white head. Nice sheet of Belgian Lace on top. Great looking head on this beer. Fruity aroma with hints of chocolate and alcohol. A bit hot to my nose. VERY carbonated. The carbonation feels like burning to my tounge. Like WAY over carbonated homebrew. Fruity, sweet flavors with a ton of alcohol on the finish. I would suggest these gusy go back to the drawing board with the idea of a stout.

Pours a dark black with a thick rocky head that thins a little bit and lasts the duration of the beer. Big whiff of alcohol burns my nose(wow),roasted malt and a touch of belgian yeast also noted. The taste is a mouthful of coffee, chocolate and alcohol with a big finish of bittering hops, a bit of sour is also detected and some spicy belgian yeast.Finishes quite dry. I wonder what a few years of cellaring could do for this?

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.

The aroma was very interesting, smelled toffee, honey and a hint of coriander (or something like it). The appearance was frothy and creamy with a light brown head. The lacing was very good and the head was mostly diminishing. The body was cloudy and the hue was Black. The initial flavor was sweet and the finish was sweet and bitter and long. The body was medium, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was soft.

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.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2010
Opaque black pour, slightly brown/red ’round the edges. Big frothy tan head, diminishing quite quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, fruits, some dark berries, caramel, alcohol, faint hints of coffee and sour yeast. Taste is of roasted malts, a bit of caramel, coffee, some sweetness, but dominated by roasty bitterness. Not much hop. Roasty and rather tiresome finish. Heavy and overwhelming carbonation, not exactly graceful. Medium body, medium duration, low viscosity. The aroma writes out checks, that the taste simply can’t cash, which is a shame.

Nez démonstratif. Nougat, réglisse et café en bouche. Assez liquide et mousseuse. Des notes herbacées et épicées aussi ( genre cardamone ... ) Du fruité confit ( griottes )... Pas mal d’arômes, mais avec un côté aqueux ... Presque une porter donc. Pas si équilibrée que ça ... Bien, mais je ne sis pas fan.

Black, strong brown head. Some sweetness and roastiness, strong chocolate and coffee. Nuts, chocolate and coffee - sweet more than bitter. Finishes chocolatey bitter. Very nice.

Ottima. Nel bicchiere nera con abbondante schiuma. Aroma di cioccolato al latte e di cappucino. Il malto tostato è relegato da qualche parte sotto quel manto nero e fa fatica ad uscire. Al palato cremosa, liscia, suadente. Ritornato i sentori di cappuccino e cioccolato al latte resi caldi e suadenti dalla presenza notevole dell’alcol (9 di ABV). A me è piaciuta un casino. Il papillon colpisce ancora.

Hot damn! I’ve been waiting for something new out of these guys. This tastes like an Imperial Stout, with a ton of fruity and roasty flavors. Tastes strong, but not too bitter. Very nicely done.
