3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från Beergium. Gravöl med kusin Mattias. Flaska som skummar över rejält. Svart vätska med högt, fluffigt skum i brun kulör. Fyllig arom, både av söt kola och riktigt mörk choklad tillsammans med kraftiga kaffetoner. Halvstor kropp. Något syrligare i smaken, med en del chark och ekfat. Fin strävhet tillsammans med lena chokladtoner. En del lakrits. Avslutar i rejält rostade toner med fin beska.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Corkscrew, Urbana. One of the better European stouts I’ve tasted. Rich and thick, notes of fudge and roasted coffee on the palate. Prune and date meets belgian yeasts for some added funkiness. Good balance of hops and malt. Fine work.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of me. Pours pure black with tan head. Strong roasty malt aroma, toffee, caramel, chocolate. Alcoholic nose. Flavor is heavy on the malt, more roasted and burnt flavors than other stouts I’ve tried. Almost a sharpness to the taste, but balance by malty sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Pitch black pour with a big beige head. Wonderfull aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee, wood, liquorice and roasted malts. Same hints in the taste. This beer has a near perfect balance. Good hop finish. Great brew!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ohh but for the carbonation this beer would defy all others. Dark...dark...dark beer. Head is massive, khaki. Nose softly wafts into the nose. Musky roasted malts, clean, clean yeast. Exquisite. Cocoa. Interesting when this one hits the tongue. This is as carbonated as most belgian strong ales are and that really cuts in between the folds of flavor. First a musty roasted grain, then a slight cheddar and sweetness. This comes to a sweet flavor coupled with alcohol. Lots of alcohol. Too carbonated I agree but from this brewer it isn’t all that strange.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Ar: Acedic sourness, some dark caramel.
Ap: Deep brown, lots of chunky yeast, with an enormous and rocky light tan head with great retention.
T: Acedic sourness up front, with a cherry and leather quality - some cola and plum - the sourness and acidity really dominate.
P: Medium body with exceptionally high carbonation - finish is very dry.
O: It is difficult to find the stout in this beer as the sourness has almost completely taken over.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Sprinkle: Pours black with a huge tan head. Smell of dried fruit, chocolate and spices. Taste is sour, maybe from the dried fruit. Also there was chocolate and coffee, very complex. I think this an awsome beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma sweet malty, some yeast, some chocolate. Pours dark brown with a rich beige head. Taste is richer than smell and a round palate.
Overall a drinkable nice stout
