3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
4/16/12. 750mL bottle. Black pour, maybe deep, rich brown, with a big, frothy tan head that fades and laces in small rings. Interesting aroma with some chocolate, coffee, and chalk, but with a definite yeasty and almost tart aspect. Light coffee and chocolate with more hints of tartness. All of this in combination with a somewhat light body and high carbonation makes this almost a refreshing stout. Interesting!

Beautiful light brown foam. The aroma is toasted malt and coffee and a bit of acidity of indeterminate nature. The taste is different from usual stouts, probably because of its Belgian origin. The taste of brown sugar, bitter dark chocolate (maybe even a little chocolate biscuits), and so it has this slightly fruity impression that really do not belong in a stout, but as many Belgian stouts nevertheless has in the baggage. I simply believe it is due to the traditional Belgian fermentation methods and yeasts. Hop bitterness is something distinctive for type, but the stout is easy to drink and delicately spicy to finish. Excellent stout.

Nice. No big spectacle but well brewed. I am drinking this on a warm summer night and it is nice to have a stout that’s refreshing. There is slight sourness a funky element, some coffee, bitter hops and buned malts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
For a stout, very Belgian. Dark, initially with a coffee coloured head, but not for long. Medium body and carb. Nose starts with sour cherries and finishes with chocolate. Taste also has red and black cherry. It’s beautifully fragrant, but it’s not a stout.
