lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2010
Dark brown, light tan head. Weird thin roasty and metallic aroma. Taste is coffee, roasty, chocolate, estery but way way too thin.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours a nice deep dark brown(almost black) color. Aromas of chocolate, smoke, and some sweetness. Flavor is dark chocolate, a touch of berry, and smokey. Creamy with a dry finish and a bittersweet aftertaste.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear black body with a large frothy and foamy light brown head that left tons of lacing. Roasty fruity Belgian Stout nose with lots of yeast character. Lots of nice dark chocolate and cocoa powder. The flavor is really quite nice for a style that I ususally donít care for. The roast and cocoa notes outshine the yeastiness thatís usually what turns me off of this style. Just slightly sweet and very chocolaty, finishing with a light earthiness. Medium bodied with a nice smooth easy drinking texture and soft carbonation. This was a really pleasant surprise. I will buy this again.

Lubiere (10997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2010
A clear dark brown stout with a thick big bubbled brown head. In aroma, herbaceous chocolate with notes of catnip, metallic points. In mouth, a strong bitter chocolate with roasted malts, astringent notes, like burned carbon. Surprisingly rich given the strenght. Bieropholie import.

Suttree (5474) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Light black - is that possible? Well, youíve got gray, I suppose, which isnít really accurate, so I guess itís more of a brown, or a very ark brown thatís almost black. And a beige head, too. Traditional stout aromas - chocolate and coffee, and traditional stout aromas, as well. Some red wine in the finish. Not particularly sweet, but I liked it. From a Christmas in Belgium Mix pack.

wouter (6) - , NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2010 does not count
Excellent stout, mellow but not weak. Hazy dark brown, ever so slight watery start followed by a fuller mouth feel. Smells of milk chocolate ("koetjesreep", if you know it) with a hint of minerals and some hop. Iím often in the mood for a bit more íbiteí but this is a nice thirst quenching, lighter stout that is very well balanced.

nimbleprop (5785) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Sampled this on cask at La Cervezateca in Barcelona. The hand pump leaves the glass not quite opaque, slightly watery black with a lasting, frothy, slightly beige head. Nice coffee, toasty aroma with a hint of chocolate and a hint of black pepper. Flavor is sweet, bread, toast, light milk chocolate. Dry finish. Very nice.

pivnizub (9195) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle: Deep dark amber coloured, presumably hazy, smaller but firm beige head; dry roast-malty nose, almost a bit ashy, traces of tobacco, liquorice and a subtle fruitiness underneath; smootrh, medium bodied, moderate to solid bitter flavour, combined with a light acidity; tobacco returns in the dry roasty and ashy finish. Surprise: a great belgian beer, that is not sweet........

Ernest (6649) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, cocoa), lightly hoppy (herbs), with a light note of blackberry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. A simple but enjoyable dry stout.

BelgiskOlklub (961) - Viby J, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2009
Small brown diminishing head and a hazy brown body. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and lots of hops. Creamy texture and a bitter finish bite. The taste is medium/heavy bitter and medium sweet.
