Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2007
Almost murky black with fine thick creamy fully lasting white head. Aroma of dark roasted malts. Coffee & chocolate. A vinous sweet aroma as well. Fizzy carbonation - lively mouthfeel. Yeasty dolle feel. Full body. Taste of bitter hops & chocolate. Little liquirice also. This and Ellezelloise Hercule, is without a doubt the two best stouts from Belgium! Really great!

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Bottle. Sweet, spicy liquorice aroma. Unclear, almost black colour. Very big, stable, creamy, light brown head. Very flavourful, roasted coffee. Also quite fruity and salty. Sweet coffeeish aftertaste, also very bitter. ABV is noticable in the finish, but not very clear before that. Very high carbonation.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2005
330ml bottle from the brewery. Dark brown/black with lasting thin dark tan head. This is an absolutely intense stout. Tar, liquorice and bitter dark chocolate on the aromas. God, this is intense. Almost primeval. Mouthfeel has the sour notes of a stout with some carbonation. Finish is like swallowing 200g of dark chocollate in one go. Definitely pleasant but it does feel as though you have been mugged by a lump of bitter chocolate wrapped around a prune brick. One hell of a beer though.

Theis (13354) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2006
Bottle at home. Black, light brown head. Sweet, roasted malts, raisins, prunes, licorice, coffee (espresso), a bit sour and some bitterness. Not so smooth and pleasant as I prefer a stout.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a big, foamy beige head, too big actually, and a black body. Chocolate, roasted malt, sugar, berries and a touch of yeast in the aroma. Rather dry, effervescent, slightly warming in the mouth, with flavors of chocolate, dark sugar and some burnt malt. Even though there’s this warming sensation, the flavors of alcohol is well hidden. A nice Belgian stout. (080118)

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
Bottled
Opaque black, huge brown head. Aroma has black coffee, roasted malts and cardboard. Medium-bodied (hides 9 % extrelemely well). Dry, chocolaty with lots of roast.Overhelming complex flavors. Long roasted, slightly alcoholic aftertaste. This is like Guinness on drugs or Westy12 mixed with stout. Another masterpiece from DDB.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Opaque dark brown colour. Lasting light brown head. The aroma is sweet - plummy and fruitcakey with roasty, nutty notes. Rather fizzy, and this distracts the palate from what appears to be good flavour underneath. What I can taste is rich black malt flavour, with hints of roast, toast and hop. There is a lingering roasty bitterness, but this too bows down before Emperor CO2. Sweet flavours, terribly body due to overcarbonation.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a black body with a moderate light brown head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malt, and bread. Alcoholic texture with a bitter finish. Flavor of bitter coffee and dark fruits.
