Nice stout with a good biterness. Like many product of that browery , it have a good taste and not to much alcohol.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Opaque black, even strong light does not penetrate. Foamy carmel cream head. Surprisingly light coffee and and burnt linen/flax aroma. Fizzy, strong burnt wood flavor with a hint of weak, dark coffee. Reminds me of a smoke flavored tea called Lapsang Souchong. This beer is very dry with a lingering finish of bitters. It is so different it will be worth offering to others some day as a surprising experience.

Fin (7674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Gent, Belgium, had this 19-03-08 A nice dry stout, very dark brown in colour with a a tan head. Nice dry woody bitterness, almost like sucking on a stick. This is wonderful, there is a nice coffee bitterness that doesn’t scream out at you it just sits below very subtle. This is a well made beautiful little stout and along with the Wagtail Black Shuck stout tried recently this is exactly what I look for in a stout, great stuff.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2008
ZBF 2008: Black with a tight and creamy tan head. A cold cup of coffee with one lump of sugar. Black malt aroma with a touch of charcoal. Some hay but no real hop aroma. This stout is significantly drier than most belgian stouts. Lightly chalky. Black malt and roasted barley. Alcohol kicks the darkness through. The aroma makes it seem that this beer will be on the astringent black malt side but it is very smooth. The only bite comes from the alcohol. Creamy smooth. No real distinguishable fruit besides some black cherry. Rather "cold-brewed" coffee like.
