Een typische stout met zijn heel uitgesproken smaak. Maar dat is niet echt mijn ding

Bottle: pours dark brown with tan head. I taste some semi- chocolate but not coffee. fairly mild beer overall taste wise. The booze seems pretty hidden too. Good beer, but I can find stouts I like more for less money.

Dark pour with beige head. Aroma is sweetish roasted malts, dark berries. Roasted malts, slight sweetness, alcohol warmth on the finish. Dry. Like an imperial Guinness. A bit bland.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beers of the World. I had this years ago, remember an empty bottle adorning our beer bottle room decoration at university, also vaguely remember being slightly underwhelmed. So here’s another try. Dark brown colour, reddish brown hints, thick white head, quite high carbonation. Initial thoughts are a bit thin, bit of booze, long ash tray roasty malt finish. It’s ok. I really don’t get the excitement of this highly rated beer though - I’ve actually found nearly all Belgian stouts or beers with a darker malt bill than a kind of ruddy brown to be a bit underwhelming, even from breweries I normally love.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Tom L. Black with beige head. Slightly vegetal, a little smooth and sweet taste that then turns smoky. Dry, wood and roastiness in the mouth. medium-bodied, long, roasty finish. Really good.

Black. Beige head. Wonderful aroma of dark berries and roasted barley. Lots of roasted barley in taste, and in the long, moderately bitter, aftertaste.
