michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Draught at TND: Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and slight wood. Poured very dark brown/ruby in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, tan/light brown head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer as well as around the edges. Clear. Not sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of light chocolate, roasted malt, hops, and a hint of pine. Light to medium body. Dry, slightly thin texture. Average carbonation. Chocolate, roasted malt finish is dry. Good amount of flavor for a session beer.

Reddish brown color; thick beige head. Chocolatey aroma, a little roast. Very dry flavor, while still giving a chocolate flavor. Gives the impression of tree bark.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Very pleasant and unexpectedly pleasant Stout from the old Belge. Light, fluffy texture, accompanied by a very subtle flavour, which is most notable for it’s sweetened coffee hues. Drinkable, not overbearing.

Dfonorow (2039) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2010
On tap at rattle n’ hum. Pours dark brown with a thin coffee-colored head. Aroma is nice and malty but with a good amount of spice added (pepper, cinnamon). Flavor is just like a normal dry stout to begin with but then it transitions into a spicy finish. Quite strange, but not bad, I can see why Belgium is not known for its stouts.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Brewed in Belgium !!! Pours a very dark brown color with a super foamy headt that dissipates in a few minutes. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, dark malts and earth. Taste is very similar to the aroma with the addition of some peppery notes. Mouthfeel is very thin and dry !!! Overall this stout drinkable, but not exciting.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Dark brown pour with a tiny tan head. aroma is cocoa powder, some bitter cocoa bean and a but of skim milk. Light but creamy in the mouth. Flavors are pretty straightforward, chocolate starts out sweet and ends a bit bitter in the back of the palate. Nothing extraordinary, but nonetheless a nice session stout.

Bottle. Pours black with brownish off white head. Nose of burnt chocolate and roasted malts. Taste of chocolate and dry grain. Thinnish body. Very little depth.
