ARMed (613) - 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!

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.

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.

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

Guerde (1207) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2008
(bottle) Pours black with a fluffy off-white head. The initial aroma is quite tart (berry skin) with a dark chocolate undertone and hints of pepper. This is a really dry aroma, with additional light hints of smoke and dark roasted coffee. The aroma switches to more chocolate with walnuts as the beer warms further. The taste is similar to the aroma, very dry with a dominant flavor of dark chocolate and hints of roasted coffee. There is a peppery note in the finish as well, that spikes up above the substantial dark chocolate base. The finish becomes more bitter, and a flavor of smoked beef jerky appears long after consumption. Mouthfeel is fairly light for a stout, but it’s good nonetheless.

rederic (3202) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2008
Black color, with a creamy tan-colored head, with laces, yeasty, fruity, roasted malt nose, with some dark dried raisins, plums, and a light coffee bean accent, a hint of black chocolate in the aroma follows through a light-bodied palate with a yeasty, roasty, fruity character, with a nice note of black chocolate, and a faint cocoa mochaish flavor, with a leafy flowery hop citrusy, leading towards a roasty, lingering hop bitterness finish.

Bottle @ The Rake, London.
Pours completely black with ruby-red edges. Nice, creamy, beige-brown head. Great chocolate aroma, light yeast and subdued coffee. A bit fizzy and lightly thin mouthfeel. Flavour has good coffee, light chocolate and a long, lingering coffee bitter aftertaste.
