hotstuff (4230) - Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Huge very fizzy tan head with poor retention, one ring of lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Malty, chocolate, coffee, roasty, and some caramel for the aroma. The flavor was malty, chocolate, coffee, burnt, and a dry finish. Tingly mouthfeel and medium bodied. Just an okay stout IMO.

ARMed (609) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2008
This stout has been under-rated in my opinion. The beer pours with an exceptional long lasting head with excellent lacing. It has a smokey crisp licorice flavor with a nice smooth aftertone of hickory. It has a very smooth stout flavorwith a subtle roasted malt taste. There is nothing obtrusive with this very fine Beligium stout. Very enjoyable!

Skinnyviking (7178) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Very dark red brown brown body. Caramel roasted maalt aroma with dried fruit. Sour flavor of roasted malt and dried fruit. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2008
20081130 11.2oz bottle from Supersaver Pennington. Sudsy tan foam laces and coats the bowl while a lingering eighth inch of the stuff is incessant. Aroma is mildly metallic, roasty dark malts, hints of coffee and prune. Mouthfeel is ashy, dry, and astringent with nice burnt roast notes and perhaps lighter than I’d like. Finishes quickly without loitering sweetness; its dryness persists! Utterly lacking complexity, but on a simple take it is a pleasant, quick, mild, dry stout and I dig it.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
FrankJohansen (3604) - Sabro, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a large mostly lasting head. aroma and taste of roasted malts and coffee with a semi dry finish.

2.3
   AROMA 1/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 10/20
JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2008
NEPA case split. Slightly metallic undertone with a milky bittery nut envelope with this walnut finish I don’t really dig. Kind of reminds me of what guinness might taste like if it sat in a chimney and was mixed with soot. I like the dry palate. Overrated on RB.

Dedollewaitor (14085) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 33cl @ VinensVerden, Odense. Nearly black with a creamy head. Roasted malts, coffee mainly, With a vague hint of dark fruits. Medium bodied. Very drinkable & well made stout! Fine bitterness in the end! Re-rate okt 14. Ashy, roasted, coffee and cigarette smoke. And this yeast.. House De La senne flavor. For a 4.5 stout world class. No question! 3.4-3.8
