Full bodied stout that has everything your looking for. Good roasted bitterness, espresso, dark chocolate, full bodied with a silky mouthfeel, the only thing that is detrimental imo is the yeast they use. Imparts that funky belgian quality that while looked for and enjoyed in a nice triple kind of throws things askew in a stout. Still a nice beer and enjoyable for a change of pace.

Serapac (164) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from Malting Pot. Pours dark with huge brown creamy head. Minimal lacing, low carbonation. Aroma coffee, chocolate, roast malts. Medium to full body, somewhat harsh texture. Taste milk coffee, chocolate truffles, cinnamon, first sweet, later turning into malty tartness. Nicely complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark brown not quite opaque with a huge dense head and some legs. Aroma is fresh dark rustic bread with toasted crust. Flavor is roast. a tad lactic, cocoa, licorice, fairly mild sweetness and bitterness. Alcohol is totally hidden Feel is very full and lively but ends watery. Really nice and balanced. Not especially complex.

Robv (50) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2015
Wauw, this beer is powerful! It’s very bitter (that’s what I like) and you can compare it with dark chocolate of 80% cacao and coffee. It also contains a little bit of soy in the taste, which realy completes this beer.

Drank with Tijs, Thierry and Rik at home 21-12-2014. Beer has lots of carbonation. Taste is fairly one dimensional, dark like coffee and chocolate. Taste is fine but not that comprehensive or rich.
