On Tap at Alewife for my anniversary dinner with the wife. Deep dark chocolate pour. Aroma is full of wet coffee grounds and belgian yeast. A dry stout with a surprising amount of belgian yeast. Really clean. Not overpowering. In fact, mellow flavors overall, but delicious.

Draft at alewife. Pours a dark brownish black with thin lacing. Aroma is wood and earth. Mouthfeel is dry but full with notes of wood, dirt, earth, roast, and bitter chocolate. Great, unique stout.

Poured a very dark brown, almost black. Almost no head. Aroma is quite sweet with roasted malts and some milk chocolate. Some cherries as well. The taste is quite burnt yet a tiny bit watery. Some coffee as well. Aftertaste is slightly astringent with more burnt flavors.

Clear dark ruby brown with a good ring head and splotchy lace. Considering the low abv, this is an exceptional brew - lots of roasted caramel/coffee for openers, with a clean, bitter toasted-malt finish, which is particularly satisfying. Refreshing to enjoy a stout that doesn’t follow the current formula: malt moving to bitter chocolate and/or coffee to finish.

BeerLuvver (91) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle from Beautiful Beers. Pours ruby black with initial good head but goes too quickly. Nice lacing. Scent of strong roasted malts and slight fruitiness. Good dark roasted malt flavour with a hint of sourness and a good bitter finish. An excellent stout.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Faint roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Dark brown with hidden suspension. Couldn’t get a head on pour. Flavor is very bitter, and not typical stout bitterness at that. Consistency is way too thin; it doesn’t outweigh most lagers. Nice to see a new brewer work out of the Belgian comfort zone, but this is not my cup of stout.

Too much like Guinness. Too watery for my taste. Very few hints of chocolate or coffee and not too much of an aroma. Not too bad, but a very regular beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured an opaque dark brown color. The head was tall and light brown with good retention and a bit of lace. Chocolate, raisin, toffee, and subdued roasty malt in the nose. Light to medium bodied and dryish with carbonation on the bubbly end of the spectrum. Roasty dark malt flavor with a hint of smoke.

Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dark chocolate brown colour, big golden head. Aroma is chocolate and creamy malt, ovaltine almost, bit roasty. Taste is very smooth and chocolatey. Quite dry too. Lots of grain and wheat. Really malty. Some subtle bitterness towards the end. Lovely.
