fkoolen (217) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2014
Pitch black with a beige brown creamy head. Thin-ish aroma but powerful taste big on roasted grainy malts (or actually wheat) on a background of chocolate and coffee. As it warms it gets more sweet/vanilla and (almost barrel-aged) boozy. Very nicely balanced sweet, bitter and even slightly sour tones, all lingering as well. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation, medium-big bodied. Enjoyable Belgium-style stout.

Russo (1650) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 15, 2014
Very Black color with a mediu tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is like the aroma with more coffee and slightly toffee notes. Soft carbonation and medium body with a light balancing between bitterness and sweetness finish.

corkyrory66 (513) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2014
Bière noire comme son nom l’indique, étiquette noire, bouchon noir... Au compteur des Kale Riders, un 8 % abv pour faire tourner le moteur... Couleur noire quasi totale. Mousse caramel qui nappe en nuage central. Arômes de malt torréfié, chocolat noir de haut vol. 1ère bouche structurée de café fort, pâte aux œufs, pelure de pomme rouge. Arrière-bouche liée. 2ème plus forte encore avec du fumé, du tabac, des mûres. 3ème plus liée maintenant, avec du malt et du café. Arrière-bouche avec épices et poivre. La longueur tend vers l’équilibre, avec un côté torréfié dominant, mais souple, et des fruits noirs. La levure est intense, concentrée. L’alcool est très correct et joue son rôle, même s’il ne ferait pas tourner une Chevrolet... La finale est de densité importante. CONCLUSION : une vraie bière de caractère qui possède un bel éventail de nuances, et une belle progression. Un stout même pas marqué, notez-le bien, foreign stout … Bref, un bon stout.

Fles 33cl @home . Zwarter dan zwart schenkt hij uit met een dikke bruin/goudkleurig schuimkraag . Koffie met zwarte chokolade smaak en geur. Lekker bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2014
Noire, effervescence légère, crémeuse, col brun clair moyen persistant. Le chocolat noir le dispute aux malts rôtis dans ce qui se révèle être un excellent stout à la belge.

bièregourmet (33) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2014
33cl - Black with brown foam, very nice aroma. Taste is roasted malts, coffee beans, dark chocolate, bittering hops, barley infuse. Long aftertaste. Not impressive however.

henkjanwiegers (118) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown color with a light brown, foamy head. Smells of chocolate, sweet and roasted. Foam tastes of roasted malts and chocolate, quite bitter actually. Taste is full bodied at first, chocolate and a little bitter. Very foamy moussy mouthfeel. The taste doesn’t last long, but a bitter taste of dark chocolate lingers afterwards. No hint of the 8% ABV. Nice beer!
