Belgian Stout in the Irish style with 4.5% alc.: light, dry, and freshly bitter with complex roasted notes. The scent is pleasantly fragranced by the presence of an English aromatic hop particularly appreciated by connoisseurs.

If you never tryed that one, you don’t know what a stout is. The Legend says that the brewer says you need to eat oysters with. Nice coffee taste, well present. Contrebalanced by a strong fresh hoppy side.

33cl bottle. Appearence - dark brown, nice head. Aroma - dark fruits and good coffee. Taste - torrefied and bit fruity with dry bitter finish. Overall - so good for the strength. Another great beer from Brasserie de la Senne.

25 cl. draft in a De la Senne glass @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas – I have been on the look out for this one for quite some time – A: black going to dark brown, seemingly clear with a very thick & first tanned head – S: slightly roasted chocolate malts, liquorish & hops – T: sweet roasted chocolate malts, Belgian yeast, strong touch of darker, sweeter berries (especially aftertaste), coffee, winter spices, touch liquorish, slight hint of bitterness buried in the finish, plenty of sweet cold coffee – B: medium but very firm, slightly sticky - yummy, yummy goodness

Inky black color in the glass. Large and in charge faomy bubbled capping of light tanned foam. Sits a good while before settling to an always present frim collar ring and skimming. Great lacing is caked on in a thin frosting of interwoven particles. Aroma is quite nice with a smokey/charred dry sense over a bit of dry cocoa, pepper, anise, and dark malt husks. Slight sweetness undrneath, but sticks to the dryness with a well balanced tone. Taste is just as good as the smell delivers with a well formed display of dark huskyness, charred leafyness/earthyness, deep dark cocoa bean, thin bitterness within the cocoa and char adding tin and ash notes as it developes into a nice placid realm of dryness into the finish with touches of charred pepper spice and espresso chocolate. Well balanced, even though its overall dry from front to back. It has an ease about it that is encouragably tolerable throughout each sip. Medium bodied to closing in on fullish. Loads up the dryness on the palate, but some how fills up the throat and belly with a roasty warmth and tender little sweetness underneath. Very nice. The dryness takes a bit of getting use to, but once its flow has started to take place its easy to follow. A nice surprising find and will go back for more.

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

Un petit stout à 4,5 qui est donc à 0,4 au dessus de la Guinness … que le brasseur appelle le « brussels stout ». Couleur noir charbon. Mousse qui tombe vite et nappe sans aucune crème. Arômes de café pur, chocolat noir à 70%, candi brun, pointe d’anis. Texture assez rude. 1ère bouche sur un bon café arabica. Arrière-bouche remarquable, belle ampleur, assez vaste pour un stout, sur du malt et du candi. 2ème bouche fantastique où le malt le dispute au café, pointe d’anis en arrière. 3ème nez de Médoc. Excellent mixte café/malt. Arrière-bouche plaine, très complète, longue. La longueur est plutôt constante, et ne grandit pas. La levure est très gradée pour ce genre de bière. L’alcool est agréablement surprenant pour du 4,5 … mais on ne peut parler de grand travail. La finale est sur une ligne conventionnelle. Conclusion : une bière qui commence très fort, puis s’épuise au travail, mais on ne peut pas réussir tous les brassins !!! (et puis ce n’est qu’un « foreign stout » comme dit ratebeer...). Bon, si vous cherchez mieux, vous allez trouver facilement chez ce brasseur ...

Jet black with small brown head. Mild but complex aroma, Very dry and bitter. Taste of dark roasted malt, chocolate, fruit and hops. Exceptionally drinkable dry stout, medium bodied and very enjoyable.
