Aroma: Sour, Spicy and Floral with some faint roastiness Appearance: Dusty brown to black with a large lasting tan to light brown head Flavor: Open with flavor of roasted grains and coffee (these were not apparent in the nose) the sour and spicy elements show up with great restraint Palate: Sightly spritzy, Roasty toasty flavors finishing dry (dangerously drinkable) Overall: Expect the unexpected, a Belgian Stout very unique and uncommon. I really like to surprise in the sense that for an a such a big beer it is surprisingly light. The aroma is not what you expect from a stout

Ah Boston a town free of, well, the LCBO. Bottle from Charles Street, my new favourite place in the world. Ya De Dolle! Pours as a stout should dark opaque finger or two of tan head. Rich smell. Sweet molasses, roast caramel malts, little fruity red wine, touch of booze. Taste big booze, little sour wine, lot of roasted malts, nice balance. A stout brewed in Flemish beer country. Not your standard stout, but that’s OK with me. Suck it Guinness. Tiki you should try this. Tee hee.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Deep brown and a little overcarbonated with a huge tan head. Roasty aroma. The initial taste is all alcohol but then it fades quickly. Interesting beer. More chocolatety and malty flavor. Full bodied.

Bottle at Union Jacks. Pours black with a big brown head that has decent retention. The aroma is a bit boozy, some coffee, stove chocolate. The taste has some coffee, cacao, not as boozy as the aroma. High carbonation and a bit dark fruit . Not bad.

33 cl bottle. Quite possibly a 2010 vintage. Pours a dark brown with beige head that was nearly "gusher" level that faded to a thin wisp. Aroma is sweet malts with yeasty bread notes. Flavor is dark fruits, leading with prunes, plums, and slight coffee bitterness. Finish is slightly dry and bitter, with lingering black cherries. A certain Belgian yeast complexity is prominent throughout. A favorite for many years.

Bottle (330 ml). Black with a huge frothy brown head and some lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, roasted malt, liquorice, chocolate and grapes/winey notes. Taste is also quite Belgian with yeast, liquorice, roasted malt, chocolate, grapes/winey notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Slightly mouthfeel. Long lasting fruity (mostly grapes) finish with a touch of alcohol. Good complexity as it’s almost always the case with De Dolle. Quite tasty. Balance isn’t bad either. Interesting for sure.
