Koelschtrinker (16798) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Malzig-bitterer Antrunk. Die Bitterkeit steigt schnell stark an und erreicht einen schon unangenehmen Intensitätsgrad. Dabei ist die Malzigkeit vorerst noch wichtig, die Bedeutung nimmt mit der zunehmenden Bitterkeit aber deutlich ab. Untertönig hopfig, im Nachgeschmack kommt dieses Aroma in den Vordergrund und bildet mit der Bitterkeit und deutlicher Getreidigkeit den Abschluss dieses merkwürdigen Bieres. Test vom 26.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,5,9,6,8 - 8,00

Very dark brown beer under a beige small head, unstable. Aroma: chocolate, some mocha, a little hops. MF: lots of carbon, full body. Taste: dark chocolate up front, some red berries (sour), little caramel, then mocha. Aftertaste: coffee bitterness and hop dryness.

jkwood04 (5260) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 5, 2011
11.2oz bottle in an English pint. Pours deep brown with a thick, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light hops, light fruits, and a little spice. Flavor a little light on the malts, but good overall. Average texture. A decent beer but could be more.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle. Certain;y better than some Belgian stouts I’ve had. Although certainly far from as good as others. So that means sod all. Alan Shearer has given more insight than that in one of his legendarily boring Match Of The Day slots. Poured dark brown black with a beige head. Has some chocolate, some typically Belgian characteristics. It’s ok.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2011
Pours black with a medium sized foamy white head. Roasted aroma, mainly coffee. The flavour is surprising in it’s robust roasted malt quality considering it’s abv. Quite bitter, big hit of chocolate that provides a nice sweet contrast to the long dry finish. The palate is disappointingly thin.

robinvboyer (4106) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2011
dark roasted malts, light coffee, ad some light soy. flavor was very savory, big on roasted malts, and a dry quickly bitter coffee finish. a solid stout, super sessionable stout.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle at the GBBF Babblebelt meet up at the White Horse on 4 August 2006. Creamy light aroma. Fizzy. Quite sharp. Light mouthfeel. Fairly dry and not very rich. Typical Belgian style stout. Ended up quite enjoyable though.

Frank (3971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
This beer is a halfway decent stout which is more along the lines of what I’d expect from an American micro than from a Belgian brewer or even an English one for that matter. It is mild an chocolatey w/ a bit of coffee-like bitterness. It is perhaps a bit over-carbonated it’s lightly sweet and reasonably well balanced so decent enough.

Bov (11866) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2011
courtesy of Laurent Mousson - black coloured and with a solid creamy dark beige foam; nice lacework; the nose is gently lactic with notes of roasted chocolatey malts; a moderate carbonation and a rather thin malt backbone, a decent bitterness and a pretty long roasted coffeish aftertaste - gentle and quite nice

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Bottled 33cl. Banana, dark chocolate, caramel and cress in the nose which is rather inviting. Nicely balanced. Slight acidity. Good bitterness. Dry finish which is reminiscent of sage and dark chocolate. A delicious beer with plenty of character. The taste is drier than the nose might suggest. Underrated. Another impressive beer from this brewery.
