I thought this was gross......for the most part...it had a weird wintergreen flavor that I found super distracting......maybe I had a bad bottle.....looked great though

geproeft in ít Rusteel te Gullegem. Het zwarte bier heeft veel overvloedig rotjesschuim maar weinig aroma. Er is een ietwat platte koolzuurprikkeling. Een bittere basissmaak met een droog maar zwaar mondgevoel door de hopbitterheid.De bittere nasmaak blijft heel lang hangen

smells like a funky stout. not like other belgian stouts I have had. very malty smell. lots of chocolate - and FUNK. crazy lacing, underlying earthy herb type taste. puckering. and interesting beer that everyone should try. but onlly buy one bottle

Higly carbonated with a lightly astringent mouthfeel. Aroma and flavor of cocoa nibs and alcohol in a suspension of roasted malt. Sweet coffee stirred with a stick of chocolate. Odd little beer, but nice enough.

gusher! opaque brown, thick foamy tan head. aroma is sweet and sour bread. just sour malt, i donít know about this one. taste is similar with odd artificial black licorice sourness in finish, but otherwise tasty. sweet. medium body, over carbonation. i donít know, maybe it was bad, i mean it really exploded, and the odd finish was not good.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Weird stout, uses belgian yeast strains to make a stout resulting in very fruity stout. KInd of works for it, but just very odd. Wasnít an initial fan.

Appearance: very dark brown with a full, foamy beige head and thick lace curtains. Aroma: espresso and licorice immediately, then some lactic tang, then some spice (cinnamon, clove), then a little chocolate and toast. Taste: slightly sour and tangy dark fruit (almost like a red wine), with a dose licorice right up front, but then a pleasant wave of bittersweet chocolate, Finish: toasty malts give way to a talc-like dryness, with a hint of basement mustiness and, eventually, an alcohol burn. Notes: Really liked certain characteristics of this beer--the roasty chocolate flavor and the medium-bodied easy-drinking palate. Other aspects I didnít love--the sour, lactic tang and the funky, dusty finish. Overall, not bad. Sunday morning breakfast stout of the week.

11.2 oz bottle, bottled Jan. 2011. Huge foamy light brown head. Black color. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Pretty chunky sediment on the bottom of the glass, here. Drier finish. Roasty aroma, with some molasses, licorice. Bitter light - sour taste. Lightly acidic. Fine, but didnít really hit the spot. The opposite of hearty. Little coffee. Disappointed. Most De Dolle beers Iíve tried so far get better as I let them sit for a long period, but this one just stayed kind of "meh".
