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.

tiong (6438) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle @ Polku’s tasting session. Originally rated on 21.9.2010. Okay for such a low ABV, but slightly light bodied and watery stout.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a pillowy tan head Nose of sweet coffee and chocolate, with some burnt grain and mild Belgian yeast notes. Taste shows the same. Packs a great deal of flavor into a low ABV beer, so that’s a definite plus.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - 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 (5280) - 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 (4139) - 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.
