75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, big brown bubbles in the pour, dissipating fast to no head, loads of yellow/beige chunks. Aroma is sweet, milk chocolate, coffee, hard roasted malts, some sweet spices, rivella. Flavour is sweet, whey, roasted malts, coffee/moccha, milk chocolate, light bitter finish. Taste becomes cloying after a while. Lots of carbonation, very fizzy, but not really disturbing.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 26/I/13 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel @ Nieuwjaarsreceptie Gentse Biervereniging - BB: n/a (2013-101) Thanks to Jan for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy dark brown beer, no head, like cola: lots of big bubbles while pouring, then dissipates immediately (probably from the fat off the whey?). Aroma: some chocolate and mocha, cheesy, pretty dirty, caramel, sugary, some dried fruits, dusty, cocoa powder. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: caramel, bit sour, dried fruits, mocha, sugary, coffee, bitter touch. Aftertaste: sweet and sour, mocha, some chocolate, dried fruits, cheesy, dirty ending. This is a failed attempt. Who would have a thought, De Molen makes a stout and it sucks... that’s new!

Cuso (7828) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from bierkompass.de. Very dark brown color with huge quickly disappearing beige head. Pieces of whey or whatever it is are quite disgusting. Over carbonated. Aroma of coffee, milk, dark chocolate. Taste, dark malt, coffee, milk, caramel, sweet milk chocolate. sweet finish. Not very tasty beer.

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 17, 2012
Würzig malziger, etwas zu süßer Start. Zuckrig, wenig herb, unangenehme Bitterkeit zum Schluss. Leicht bitter, merkwürdig. 8/8/7/8//7

Utterly suspicious looking yellowish head, reducing itself to some mucky-looking bubbles on extremely liveley pearling, muddy cola-coloured beer. Wood, chocolate, nuts, coffee and leftover dough. Sourish, lactic, coffeeish, roasted to burnt, on a generally sweet-roasted main flavour. Permanent quasi-explosive carbonation, keeping the MF thin - not much else going on. OK, I won’t argue about the taste, but whey? Seriously, Menno, it looks appaling!

The head is medium, the body black. It smells coffee, a bit milky, a bit sweet, sour. Medium, not much caracter. 10/8/7/7/-/7

Bottle 75 cl, tnx to rlgk. Pours murky dark brown with a small quickly diminishing tanned head. Aroma is acidy roasted malty bready salty. Flavor is nicely stouty acidy chocolate licorice roasted salty cheesy and a bit bitter. Finishes bitter roasted malty.

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is malt, roasted, lactose and fruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.
