Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Rocky balooning head that sticks around for the whole beer. Dark, but not a black hole by any means. Musty sour aroma with some hints of dark malts: chocolate, roasted, maybe Special B. Some alcohol presence ... not quite a stout, but not quite a belgian dark ale -- the roastiness makes it a definable stout. An interesting juxtaposition of two favorite beer countries.

bottiglia. Aroma alcolico che copre un i malti. si sente caffé e liquirizia. In bocca si ripropone con maggiore presenza di liquirizia (eccessiva) Alti livelli ma mi ha un po’ deluso

ippopotamo36 (202) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at a private tasting in Belgrade/Serbia. It pours black bronish with a tan head. Nose of choccolate, coffee, tons of cappuccinos. Mouth is typical stout with a slight sour feel and a bitter aftertaste.

Tuuker (21) - - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma: sour cherry, tiny bit of sweet malt Appearance: black, opaque, brown edges, big bubbles settles to thin foam ring Taste: complex, vaniilla, cherries, chocolate bitterness Palate: Low carbonation, medium bodied, warming Overall: Very suprising stout, like mix of flanders red and regular porter, takes some time to finish but offers lots to tastes buds and warms up really nice!

Unde (366) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Deep dark brown looks with big and fluffy head on top. Aroma has dried fruits, roasted malts and some coffee. Taste has licorice, roasted malts, fruits maybe even pear? Ending with some chocolate. Full body and very high carbonation, which in my mind didn’t do justice to this beer. Taste was a lot better than the aroma, so in the end this was a nice Stout from Belgium.

angel77 (983) - oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 6, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de zombier, tomada en septiembre de 2013. stout fácil de beber con tonos de cacaos y maltas tostadas con fácil paso por boca y buena sensación alcohólica con sus 9 vol. Tonos algo ácidos y algo ligera para una stout. No esta mal. Habría que repetirla..

stevoj (2191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Yeast compliments the dark stout malts. Dried fruit character as well in both aroma and taste. Sweet, nutty, bitter, yeast, very complex beer.

Bozo_skeleton (507) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 24, 2014
Noire d?encre collet brun et cremeux.Aromes magnifiques de chocolat liqueur café. A la fois onctueuse et vive elle surprend agréablement. Les flaveurs de café prennent de l?ampleur et le final amer et long fini de compléter la dégustation.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, nearly black, half finger nut brown head. Aroma is slightly roasted, burnt figs, hint of ripe banana. Some grass and acidity. Taste is slight sweet and then more and more roasted and finish is bitter from the dark malts and dry roast mouth. Body is medium.
