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 (485) - 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.

Bottle at Fermentoren. Pours Black with a big tan head. Aroma has licorice, roast, dried plums, figs, port wine. Maybe a little banana. Taste is much more roasted, dry and with Dark chocolate. Tarcoal and ashy roast. Semi-Full Body, but Fairly High carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmzl (89) - SLOVENIA - AUG 22, 2014

Look: Pours with huge, thick, darker mocha head. It has a very slow, rock solid retention, leaves a thick layer for the whole ride. Dark, dark brown, some carbonation visible.

Smell: Fresh! Bit of chocolate milkiness in the dominant dark coffee; caramel and candy more hidden but still there. Also some dark berries (wild cherries) and dry fruits, fresh cacao and earthy, spicy notes.

Taste: Dark fruit freshness, great start, acidity well represented. Continues to medium, lively middle sweetness, again mostly coffee driven. Ends with medium bitterness with small boozy spike towards the end. Strong dark coffee dominates in the after but mellows down with more sips.

Mouthfeel: Full body, light heavy, lively carbonation, almost dry finish.

Overall: A pleasant surprise, was searching for a fat stout and the bartender offered me this one, was not disappointed. Rich and could easily slip in the imperial stout style.

rbrazell (1629) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Black pour with a large frothy tan head that hangs out through the entire beer. Aroma of bitter sweet cocoa powder, roasted malts, light hints of dark fruits, candy sugars, yeast funk, star anise with notes of spice. Fairly complex nose. Raisin and plum notes enter the mouth, fading into bittersweet chocolate, coffee, anise, yeast with a spicy and slightly bitter finish. Lively carbonation hides the alcohol. Truely complex and tasty beer.

Stout fantastica della De Dolle, colore nero intenso, aromi di cioccolato e caffè, gusto ricco e corpo alcolico ben nascosto. Fantastica

Helsdon (148) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 15, 2014
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.
