Bottle into a De La Senne glass. Black with a good foamy yellow-brown head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Smooth and tasty, with zest. Tastes to me more like a black IPA than a stout. Still its nice and different for a Belgian beer. Not bad.

Bardzo dobry i wytrawny stout. Czarny, metny i gesty jak smola, nieprzeswitujaca czarna i gleboka barwa. Mocna i wielka piana, czapowata i daszkowa. Drobnoziarnista. Piwo nasycone srednio dwutlenkiem wegla oraz niski poziom alkoholu jak na belgie, to same plusy bo milo dla odmiany napic sie czegos odbiegajacego od przyjetych norm. Polecam

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Opaque brown pour with a big foamy tan head. Sweeter dry chocolate stout off the top but lots of dark leather ashy flavors in the middle. Good notes but a bit inquonsquential.

Bottle 0.33l from Marlou Zonhoven. Pours almost black with a beige head and soft carbonation. Aroma is toasted malt with a sour touch. Taste is a perfect blend of roasted malt, bitterness and toffee sweetness. I am always impressed how these guys brew beer under 5 ABV with such a complex taste. Cheers.

pours very dark brown with a very nice creamy medium dark beige head, good retention and lacing. fresh roastiness and fruitiness, plums, coffee, hint of smoke, some belgiumness - spices mainly but also that dark candied fruitiness, hint of vanilla, maple, bit of earthiness and minerals. average to moderate carbonation, light to medium body - very silky too, impressive for the abv, slightly harsh grassy-resinous finish. i like what these guys are brewing.
