Dark brown with tan soap suddish head. Hints of ripe fruit in the aroma, charcoal, yeast. Mixed bag really. Low carbonation so thickish texture. Taste is burnt wood, coffee dregs , fag-end (but in a good way) with some sweetness throw in. A mild stout that’s quite pleasant.

heavy (2736) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 14, 2016
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured, I guess, lightly hazy, very typical almost black body with a small brownish head. Fine coffee and chocolate aroma. A bit woody as well. Flavor was lightly bitter, roasted, too with caramel, chocolate, coffee. Medium to full body, creamy on palate. Nice long bitterish roasted finish. Clean, roasted flawless. Great and quite tasty for such a low ABV.

Dégustée à température de 14,8°C à 18,2°C. Corps acajou sombre couronné d’une très jolie mousse beige foncé à reflets orange, persistante, crémeuse. Arômes de café au lait intense, réglisse, cacao amer, candi. Saveurs de café très aromatique, cacao à 90%; une acidité et aussi une certaine rondeur qui équilibre; le côté savoureux se développe avec la température qui augmente. Remarquable stout compte tenu du degré d’alcool. Très bien avec une tomme de brebis au lait cru ou une mimolette vieille. De la Senne montre bien, encore une fois, que pour s’imposer il vaut mieux être élégant plutôt qu’un gros bourrin !

Poor at the nose with hints of coffee and chocolate, very dark brown with a rocky and creamy beige head, light body, medium carbonation, a very simple but convincing taste dominated by coffee and some cocoa...de la senne means quality.

Bottle from Belgian e-shop. Pours dark brown with low tan head. Aroma is intense, strong roasted malts, coffee, nutty, chocolate. Sweet wor-ish aroma. Taste is say sauce, liquorice, very dark caramel. Aftertaste is mainly roasted malts but not very long. Light to medium bodied, light carb. Very intense for the 4.5 abv, very nice brew...

Couleur noire, mousse modérément, tenue moyenne. Des arômes de café, noix, tourbes. Texture crêmeuse, une stout plutôt réussie.

Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2016: Birra interessante, fresca, complessa nelle sue sfumature. Al naso aroma di cioccolato al latte e leggero caffè in giunzione ad un pizzico di arancia. Nel bicchiere la birra è molto scura con schiuma cremosa color caffelatte. Nella bevuta prevale la dolcezza inizialmente mentre verso la fine l’amaro si fa strada, anche un po’ troppo. Il corpo è leggero, la carbonazione un po’ spinta, non piacevolissima su questo stile, e nel finale si avverte una leggera astringenza.

Bottle. Lasting small head. Aroma is mostly roasted, but also some coffee. The same in the taste but licorice and nuts also. Onesided...

butelka, warka z 02/07/2015. sympatyczny wyglad, piana brudzi szklo. aromaty niezbyt intensywne, kawa, ciemne owoce, lekka palonosc, czekolada troszke. w ustach zaskakujaco gladki (az sprawdzilem, czy platkow jakichs nie bylo w zasypie, ale nic tam madrego nie pisza), powtorka aromatow tylko w intensywniejszej formie, slodkawy, dosc dlugie posmaki, niska ale sympatyczna, kakaowa jakby w odbiorze goryczka, drobne wysycenie. bardzo zachecajacy do kolejnych lykow. sniadaniowy ;)
