2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(draught) pours a clear darkest ruby colour with a frothy beige head. acrid aroma of toasted malts, herbal hops and heavily roasted coffee. flavour is almost the same, light dark chocolate and coffee, with little complexity and lots of astringent toasted grain. light-bodied with average carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle, $1.90 at Binny’s, April 2011. Another lower-alcohol beer I should have finished long ago. Yet when opened, there’s a definite waft of alcohol in the air. Poured into a Nonick glass, it’s black with brown highlights, a slightly foamy stout head. Smell up close has slightly roasty stout grain. Taste has some coffee stout roast up front. Dry mouthfeel which still has nice hop bitterness. At this stage, it seems like more of a sharp German bitterness than English. And I like it just fine. Some dregs at the bottom. A secondary ferment? Maybe that’s why this one has held up very well. I can slightly credit my beer cellar which stays at a nice 50°F when I lean the door in front of it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up at State Line in Elkton, MD. Served in a De La Senne tulip.
Pours a dark brown color with a good light tan head and some lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose carries distinctive Belgian yeast along with some chocolate and roast. Flavor hits on the roast and chocolate with yeast and fruit in the background. Some light spice. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty good.

25 cl. draft in a De la Senne glass @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas – I have been on the look out for this one for quite some time – A: black going to dark brown, seemingly clear with a very thick & first tanned head – S: slightly roasted chocolate malts, liquorish & hops – T: sweet roasted chocolate malts, Belgian yeast, strong touch of darker, sweeter berries (especially aftertaste), coffee, winter spices, touch liquorish, slight hint of bitterness buried in the finish, plenty of sweet cold coffee – B: medium but very firm, slightly sticky - yummy, yummy goodness

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle: Appearance is pitch black with large tan head. Aroma is basic with just roasted malt. Flavor is mostly roasted malt with hints of spice. Pretty basic for a Belgian brew, but overall a decent stout.

If you never tryed that one,
you don’t know what a stout is.
The Legend says that the brewer says you need to eat oysters with.
Nice coffee taste, well present. Contrebalanced by a strong fresh hoppy side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Polku’s tasting session. Originally rated on 21.9.2010. Okay for such a low ABV, but slightly light bodied and watery stout.
