Douberd (2590) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
(De Dolle Extra Export Stout) Bottle at home, served into a snifter, ABV 9% Totally black pour, with a huge dark brown head, really thick too, with very good retention helped by its size as well, leaving spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma has hops, fruity notes, light roasted malts, very appealing and inviting. Taste begins with a light acidity, then fruity touches, hops, leaves, chocolate, light coffee. Well hidden alcohol. The finish is what’s good here, as the acidity fades away and all the chocolate/roasted malts/coffee flavours dominate. Medium thick body with good carbonation. Very good, even better after it saat in the glass to warm up and breath a bit.

Black, strong brown head. Some sweetness and roastiness, strong chocolate and coffee. Nuts, chocolate and coffee - sweet more than bitter. Finishes chocolatey bitter. Very nice.

12oz bottle pours dark brown black with big 3 finger foamy head. Nose has dried dark fruit, old leather, blackberry, dusty dark bitter chocolate and ash. Taste is similar with nice light mouthfeel brought on by high carbonation, some grape, blackberry, ash, leather, bitter chocolate dust, earth. Finish is dry with some fruity notes, coffee, dirt, and bitter ashy cocoa.

Thick deep colored head, actually still has sediment in the bottom. Charcoal taste with chocolate finishes. Some oak. Heavy but not overly filling. Would have again.

PapaSkeetSkeet (858) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 11, 2014
black like used automotive oil, with a warm, rich brown head, moderately fine, a cm thick, settles to an attractive film a couple mm thick. Aroma is coffee and hazelnuts, slightly sweet maple syrup and candy, some herb, soil, and forest floor. Body is medium-light with a very creamy mouthfeel. Fine, moderately intense carbonation. Flavor is Earthy wet leaf, coffee twinges the back of the palate (like a dry stout), herbs, and a slight, warm nuttiness in the finish. Hint of fruity (cherry) English yeast flavor as it warms. There aren’t many export stouts I’ve had in the last two years to compare this with. Reminds me of Guiness with a more complex, earthy flavor and some more sweetness. The candy, maple syrup, hazelnut notes in the aroma and the top-notch creamy-light body are the defining characteristic of this beer for me. Dank leaves are interesting, but don’t serve to make the beer more appetizing.

zaf (248) - ITALY - DEC 11, 2014
scurissima con schiuma marrone a grana grossolana,molto persistente..aroma tipico da stout (quasi imperial) ma il tostato era meno forte e si sentivano tantissimo i lieviti belga..gusto un pochetto troppo di liquirizia a centro degustazione,ma l’amaro finale (comunque non eccessivo per essere il Nugget) bilanciava il tutto..nemmeno troppo carbonata,è andata via con piacere!
