joergen (24402) - Frederiksberg, - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle at Papsø. Hazy orange-red coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel and berries. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel with notes of cherries. Fruity finish.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2015
Belgian oatmeal stout (a rarity as such) with irregular, cream white, dense, thickly cobweb-lacing head and translucent deep bronze colour with burgundy hue, blackish but not quite. Aroma of liquorish, caramel candy, bayleaf, chestnut, white pepper, straw, dried fruit. Restrained but sweet fruitiness in the onset, raisin, plum, hint banana, strong carbo (overcarbonated for its style!) but otherwise soft and smooth mouthfeel, caramelly maltiness with toasted and very lightly coffeeish accents, bittering but mildly so, with a peppery hop touch in the end; leaves a bittersweet coating after swallowing, quite pleasant. More than decent.

corkyrory66 (1007) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
Un stout à l’avoine pour 1/3, cette belle céréale, beaucoup trop peu exploitée. Aussi 3 variétés de malt d’orge : ambré, cara et roast. Niveau abv de 6,5 % et ebu de 40. Couleur noir à reflets roux (80 ebc). Clarté nette. Mousse beige moyen, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm. Arômes de chocolat, malt chocolat, ponte de cannelle, ganache, pointe de vanille. Nez spécialement soft et très joli. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée, sur un mélange de malt grillé et café, un peu de tourbe. L’ensemble étant beaucoup plus fort que le nez. Arrière-bouche avec de l’amertume, du tabac brun et blond mêlés, complexe. 2ème aux belles céréales, et bel équilibre. Arrière-bouche forte, bien typée, avec de la dynamique. 3ème à la fois douce et forte. Arrière-bouche où passe enfin le chocolat du nez. Longueur avec un très bel équilibre, de grandes nuances sur divers malts grillés, quelques pointes de Guinness, du chocolat ensuite. Jambes fines et très groupées. Levure douce, assez complète. Alcool correct pour le genre, il travaille à l’ensemble. Finale un peu plus rêche (mais il est vrai que l’on n’est pas sur une quadruple …). CONCLUSION : encore une fois l’avoine fait parler d’elle. Grande céréale, qui permet de fabuleux équilibres dans les brassins. De la texture, du grain. Quelques bouches assez complexes. On n’est pas loin du sommet, avec une plus grande finale ...

erickok (4459) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Almost black, large head, looks good. Roasted, rye, brown sugar, clove and cinnamon. Fine Belgian stout. Good bitterness from the roast and classic hops. But sweet too. Much better than expected. Reasonable alcohol too. (Bottle at De Fiere Margriet during Leuven house visiting)

NosirIwont (2184) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle. 6.5%. Best before 31.08.15. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a big tan head. Rather sweet aroma, with roasted, malty, fruity and melon (cantaloupe?) notes. Feels a bit unbalanced, but somehow works anyway. Flavour is sweet, roasted and fruity, with a hint of a metallic overtone. Feels a bit cloying. Roasted finish with a lingering grassy note. Overall okay, though a bit peculiar for the style. 20.06.15.

First taste @ home from bottle march ’12, and summertasting WBF ’13. Yesterday again from tap @ de Proeverij. Darkbrown color, with beige head. Aroma: light coffee, roated malts, sour touch. Medium body. Taste: softsweet, more roasted malts, coffee notes, bitterness. Good.

Takairo (1) - - APR 21, 2015 does not count
Look: pours pitch black with a very thick foam that does not fit into Duvel glass. The foam dissipated over few minutes Smell: Minerally smell which gives a hint brett, faint roasted grains Taste: creamy oaty maltiness with roasted/ coffee tones. an earthy hop bitterness that gives a hint of coco/chocolate. the bitterness lingers on the tongue. i am not sure whether "leathery note" i feel comes from brett. roast/bitterness seem to overwhelm this aspect. Feel: it feels dry on mouth Overall: this is a dry stout with Belgian twist. definitely lacks caramel notes that i expected. but this is OK. interesting, but brettiness does not seem to shine here.

330cc bottle. Pours reddish brown with beige thick head. Roared coffee and caramel. Dense and highly carbonated for a stout. realy dry and bitter but not hop bitterness. Tastes a bit "Belgic"

MarcoDL (3199) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Black beer, white head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is dry and biter, with spicey oat and roasted coffee. Surprisingly good for a Belgian stout, I liked this one.
