Black plum color, with some ruby shining and beige and foamy head. Dark chocolate, coffee and liquorice with a back of Porto wine. Slightly more bitter than a traditional stout, has a deep taste, very well balanced, to yeast, coffee and liquorice with nuts. Pretty good beer.

Nydt af flaske i pint. 01-07-14. MHT 01-07-16. Tydelig duft af gær, blandet med diverse kraftige malte; brændthed, kaffe, mørk chokolade, lakrids, karamel, vaniljesødme, brød, dertil også moderat humlebitterhed, også duft af bananer og anden frugt.Enorm brusende, lysebrun skumkrone, som tager nogen tid om at forsvinde, hvortil den efterlader sparsom blondekant. Ingen sigtbarhed, mousserende og mørkebrun. Den starter med moderat sødme; vanilje, karamel, brunt sukket og kraftig bitterhed; helt tydelige lakridsnoter, kaffe, citrus og moderat surhed; brændthed. Afslutningsvis tager sødmen til i styrke, men afbalanceres fint med bitterheden og stadig moderat surhed. Varigheden af smagsoplevelse er lang og nuanceret. Kroppen er medium med mineralsk tekstur, tør og livlig kulsyre. Afsluttende er den moderat harsk og lettere metallisk. Spændende, nærmest champagne stout. Blanding af belgisk ale og engelsk stout:)

Tight white coffee coloured head, which tops a bubbly black beer. Rich stout taste balanced so it is not too sweet or burnt. Does have a tendency to want to leave the bottle before your glass is ready, unless you chill it first. Problem you then have to wait till it warms to fully appreciate it's full on flavour

brianza_ale (171) - ITALY - FEB 4, 2015
Pours an Enormous, and very tanned, dark beige, frothy and creamy head (with incredible duration too); darkest brown to black impenetrable colour. Smells yeast, woody, dried fruits, toasted, some tobacco and basement notes; a really unique blend of aromas. Tastes roasted malts, nuts, cocoa, licorice, some pleasant alcohol hints; low to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, with some hops and coffee notes in the finish; umami. Llively carbonation, medium + body, fizzy and caressing on the tongue; extremly balanced, smooth and clean in the palate, delicate on the coffee. A great and classic De Dolle brew, it is in fact quite a real mix between an imp stout and a strong belgian, with an unusual "sparkling" character and with some very nice particular notes

Chocolate and rasin aroma. Pff white foamy head. Pretty sour yeast flavour. Prumes, dadels, ristretto. Not enough coffee and chocolade for me, not Thatcher good for a stout

poech73 (243) - BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2015
Bière brune à la robe noire opaque et au un beau col beige persistant. Son nez fort épais est gras, très parfumé développant des senteurs de réglisse, de malts chocolats avec des relents de café expresso fraîchement moulu, des effluves de pain de seigle allemand et une pointe fleurie. Ce nez élaboré détone un peu avec un bouche pesante: son maltage torréfié, quoique complexe, reste assez lourd en saveurs de café caramélisées, gras au palais et fort rond. Une sensation lactée accentue cette onctuosité avec une petite pointe fruitée surette. En finale, je reçois les saveurs d’orge grillé sur des notes aigres que houblonnage accentue un peu laissant la langue rêche. Bière à la signature régionale caractéristique.
