330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a medium size, creamy beige head. Chocolate aroma with nuts and dark bread. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonated but kind bubbles. Chocolate and biscuity notes in the taste with dried fruit, yeast and slightly smoky. Lovely dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out of the bottle a rich black brown as all good stouts should. 40ºSRM.
Nose has some nice sweet barley-like aromas. Like a fresh baked barley loaf.
Carbonated mouthfeee. Gravid and full. Nice darkly roasted grain palate rounded off wih a slightly fruity tang to add a very nice body to the whole experience.
Finish is bitter that has some complexity to it, a charcoal, some herb-like flavors that are hoppy and a final clean almost fruit-like aftertaste.
A very carefully calibrated experience. The brewmaster poured some love into this batch.
Goes on Favorites List!

bottle at scott’s bar, brussels
quite roasty almost astringent and thin, missing the body that someBelgian Stouts have. a little herbal, roast barley, low carbonation. a standard dry stout with nothing stand out.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild, malty aroma. Huge, billowing tan head. Very spritzy. Roasty with a tinge of sour. Quite thin for a stout, but that doesn’t take away from my enjoyment. Just call it something else.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’ve had this one a number of times and never understood why it’s made. It’s similar to a stout, but not. Dark, but not too dark. Small head, off white to tan. Little lacing. Too much sugary notes and too roasty in the mouth. Not good.

Fresh floral aroma, and of course plenty of roasty, caramel and chocolate aroma. Not as dark as some stouts, but rather dark brown. Clear liquid. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness - loyal to the style. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, semi-long finish. Not much foam, which decreases fast.
