skoisirius (1882) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Draft at the 2009 Great Elysian Beer Festival. Big roasty sweet nose through a jet black pour. Sweet in the dark fruit range up front with cocoa and sugary roast in the back. Yum!

On Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a black with some red highs topped with a tan head. Aro ma was of roast, Belgian yeast, and some sweetness. Taste was more of the belg yeast, some spice, along with plenty of dark roast.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Must have lost my write up on this, but I remember sampling it! Poured dark brown to near black with beige head atop. Flavor wasnít overly Belgian nor complex. Your basic roasty, toasty, choco malts with a bit more yeast and vanilla than your average Stout. Donít get me wrong, very nice but I wish there was some more creativity in this offering.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
RattleíníHum: Pours a nice brown/ black, small head, no lacing. The aroma boaders on peppery, almost like Jaegermeister. The taste reveals coffee, chocolate, bitter malts. Also possibly some unripened fruits, but very minor. Also some dark sugars coming through, most likely the yeasts. I would like to see more complexity but very drinkable.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2009

BillKismet (3562) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Black bodied with adequate head. Roast barley aroma, very dry, and with pinches of milk chocolate. Roasty body with some Belgian yeast dankness that also appears in the aroma, and sour wood. Bitterish barley finish. This Belgian Stout style has been cropping up over the last year, but nothing earth shattering so far.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2009
On tap at Capitol Hill. Aroma is a touch sour with hints of sugars, Belgian Yeast notes, and roasted and black malts. Pours more or less black with a thin head. The flavor has a hint of sour fruit - which was probably unintended, some sugars, yeasty notes, and a shit ton of roasted malts, coffee, and ash. A touch astringent, light tart in the finish. I didnít think it was as bad as the dudes at Stout Night said it was, but I donít think it was intended to be that way. Oh well, not bad.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2009
On tap at Elysian Fields for SBW. Pours jet black with a nice mocha head. Mild aroma but dominated by chocolate with hints of smoke. A nice sweet chocolate and coffee flavor with a touch of smoke. This interestingly was more sour than expected with a nice pucker on the finish. Great unique stout.
