BREWMUSKCLES (2397) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2010
a toasty stout that is just a bit acrid and creamy with a vibrant pour and a brown head. a bit of fruit in there and an interesting sweetness that to me seemed rather complex.

Sammy (9664) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Beer bistro. Black, with a little permanent off-whte head, lace on the sides of the glass, and rising carbonation bubbles. Sourish aromas, mild roast as well. The mouthfeel is below average. The taste is a mild stout, with roast right there. Sourish roast, a tad astringent, in the finish.

mumares (98) - BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2010
Black beer with a thick brown head. Nose is dark chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts and some hops. Taste is very roasty, slightly acidic and peppery, with some sweetness running through to balance it out. Medium bodied, but that’s normal for a 4.5 ABV beer. Good stout!

drpimento (2494) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Poured with a nice, light brown to tan, medium sized head and no lace. Color is an almost opaque dark brown with amber highlights. Nose is roast malt, cocoa, coffee, a hint of skunk. Flavor is a litlte like nose minus the skunk. Dry stout with a bit of fruit arond the edges. Not a lot of depth. Body is ok but carbonation is a little too fizzy for the style. Finish is like flavor with some legs. Neat label though.

Aroma of light chocolate and hops. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Taste is of chocolate and some malt. Thin. Just an average stout at best.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2010
33cl bottle. pours dark brown, tan head. aroma, some bitter dark fruits, yeasty nose, light chocolate malts. flavors have the distinct Belgian stout approach keeping a nice yeasty profile that is not overdone. Lots of good roasted malts, coffee, dry and grainy mouthfeel, hints of biscuits with a mild bitter chocolate finish. Light abv and a beer full of flavors.

guzzler67 (1569) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Cloudy, deep brown appearance with a small beige head and good lacing. Roasted, caramel malt aroma intertwined with coffee. Taste is earthy, peaty, bittersweet. Moderately carbonated; palate is a little thin. Dry, bitter, lingering finish.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours a slightly thin black with a big, light tan head. Aroma is roasty with some sweet chocolate and a bit of lactose. Taste is dry with some coffee, bitter roast, licorice, and a bit of clove, but remains light and quaffable. Finish is mildly bitter with some chocolate and roast.

Abio (1783) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2010
Very dark brown, close to black coloured. Good looking lightly beige big head that holds nice. Burned-sour smell. Less goed then "equinox", wich seems to have a more balanced taste. Watery first nip, that turns into burned coffee and spices mix. More bitter aftertaste. A bitter aftertaste that holds a long time. Drinkeable, but many better beers around.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2010
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Black with beige head. Aroma is full of lightly roasted coffee and dark chocolate, but in an elegant rather than heavy way. Also a hint of dark fruits in the background. There is a slight acidity from the roasted malts, and they seem to be responsible for the bitter aftertaste too. Medium carbonation, medium body. A very nice stout!
