3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Creme marrom com incrível densidade e consistência. Aroma de malte, chocolate e caramelo, fugindo do lugar-comum das stout. Amargor moderado e seca na medida.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 Bottle, poured into snifter. Dark black, brown edge, bubbles and foams up like it thinks it’s a coca-cola and wants to overflow. Nose is soft coffee, toffee, chocolate and biscuity. Flavor is most suprising! A sharp fizzy bitter malt bite hits the tongue as if to say, "I dare you to keep drinking me". Definitely espresso and a rough hint of licorice. Almost a fizzy ’cola’ backing to the palate. A very odd taste, and interesting to say the least. It would have to grow on me, and I don’t know if it will get the chance to. (as if I were predicting the future, shortly after I finished this rating the second half of my glass found itself leaping from my glass towards the unsuspecting carpet below, I have no idea how this even happened, and now I guess this beer will indeed never get the chance to grow on me, in fact I am quite pissed at the carpet stain it has left behind)

2012 stored at cellar temp, big earthy brett character with some pineapple, cherry and dark fruit roll into chocolate malts on a well carbonated body with rounded texture, clean and smooth with great depth

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pour cautiously as this giant beautiful tan head explodes up the glass and lasts. Dark brown brew emminating aromas of roasted caramal. Very smooth, roasted coffee and semi sweet chocolate. Mostly malty raison and dark fruit but slight bitter, gentle warmth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a really lively head that took 15 min to settle. Awesome looking beer. Nose is tobacco and roasted malt, with a hint of yeastiness. Flavor is pretty interesting...a little anise and slight funky cherries to start, massive carbonation gives it a seltzer water mouthfeel. THe high carbonation is a little much early on, but as it warms, more of the chocolate and sourness come out as well as the dusty de dolle signature yeast. As I’ve come to expect from these guys, a very unique and very well constructed beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark roasted malt aromas with coffee and some cacao. Taste is a nice bitter-sweet moment, just like that feeling when the glass is empty way too soon. Some alcohol taste during the finish.

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.
