Bottle courtesy Trappistenbier. Thanks Filip. Pours black with a large tan head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, and chocolate.

Funny, I just stumbled on some of my notes from my first order from belgianshop.com. I shared this with my neighbor and we both really enjoyed this one. Much sweeter, much maltier and creamier(wow)than the one you get here in America. By looks you might not know the difference. But by smell and flavor you certainly would. Chocolate and coffee abound. Yum.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jet black with a beige rocky head. Strong roasted aroma. Bitter coffee flavour, fruity and dry, with a mildly unpleasant light tartness. I expected a lot from this beer, and although its a pretty decent stout, I am a little disappointed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330cl bottle. Dated 12.07.09. A creamy lactose sweetness initially dominates the aroma. Dry bakers chocolate and sweeter malted milk balls. Cinnamon and nutmeg with a decent dose of wed cardboard. Watered down coffee and lightly charred malt. Pours a near opaque black with a good sized thick and creamy khaki head. Dry chocolate malt at first on the palate followed by a good dose of lactose. Toasted, but not quite charred malt. Thicker cold press. A good dose of slightly funky yeast as well. Medium bodied with a sweeter lacto finish. Odd, but thanks for the rare treat Dan!
