Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Well balanced full of chocolate and coffee notes with the right amount of sweetness. Rich and flavourful. Really tasty.

Bierridder_S (663) - BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2016
18/03/2016 - 25cl from draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Dark brown with nice creamy light tanned head. Nose is fully chocolate, taste also, no roast, mocha or other influences. Very easy drinking, maybe too easy. Nice beer to start with stouts for someone who never had one, but not really for the exercised stout drinker.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4457) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 6, 2016
Brasserie de la Senne’s Belgian Chocolate Stout 2016 vintage 6.2% I wouldn’t be surprised if this was brewed at the request of the Japanese importer as this winter seasonal fits squarely into the Japanese Chocolate Valentine beer style. Ah seems these are designed by Rio Brewing Co. (Japanese contract Brewers) and made in Belgium. Pouring an inky black with a light beige head and a fudge like chocolate syrup aroma. Medium bodied the flavor is dark chocolate, s bit artificial with some floral notes and brownie chocolate cake like maltiness. Not bad.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. Roasty and meaty nose, with chocolate nand mild yeastiness. Dark translucent brown, 1-2cm dark tan head. Sweet dark chocolate initial flavor, followed by vanilla, a lactose-like note, and light coffee. Medium body (a touch too light, actually). Light, unassuming, and fairly tasty.

Keg at Moeder Lambic. Very dark brown, red hue, opaque, small foamy brown head, thick lacing. Aroma is light chocolate, mint and Jamaica ginger cake. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is chocolate, biscuity malt, a touch of mint, soft dry finish. Decent.

SirLimpsalot (3677) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
@ Moeder Lambic 15-10-30: Mycket lätt med små, lite beska toner av choklad. Något blek och obalanserad.

zinneke (205) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2015
vintage 2014 (bottled 2013) De la senne always brews a good beer. This one ages real well, as do all their beers (even the hoppy ones!) Bought a case last year and must say I was dissapointed as it seemed close to their already amazing Stouterik. Too bad they didnt actually put any chocolate in there, as we Belgians are surrounded by ,on a daily basis. Especially for a beer that is mostly exported. The chocolate aromas and taste coming from the malt just dont push it to make it the chocolate stout im looking for. Ace beer, but nothing more.

Benzai (13635) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2014
Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub De La Senne Tap Takeover. Very dark brown to black color, average sized tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, a lot of chocolate and cocoa, lightly earthy. Taste malts, dark malts, chocolate strongly again, lightly earthy, a hint of roast, moderately bitter. Decent body and carbonation.
