COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bičre d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sčchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

On tap @ Moeder Lambic. Quite light body, more watery than usual stouts. Not bad but too light for the style.

Freaky_tiki (673) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
Samples purloined from the soiled glass of Helsdon halfway through the Toronto Ratebeer Rollout session at the Only Cafe. Seems to hit all the right notes. Maybe a little closer to the London porter style. A tad sugary & a little waterd down.

AgentAle (894) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Aroma is rich sweet malts, floral hops and some vanilla. Taste is medium rich mouth feel with slight raisin and vanilla tones. Light well balanced bitterness follows and finishes smoothly. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 23 Oct 2014) Black colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, chocolate and a gentle touch of smoke. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, cacao, dark bread, hints of smoke and a dry finish with a generous cacao bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Well balanced and tasty stout. Nice one.

jgb9348 (4925) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Deep dark brown coloured body with a touch of a violet and ruby tint when held up to the light, all with a two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt ,dry oatmeal, nuts, caramel, prunes and a bit more earth. Light-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with a dry grain and oatmeal note and some very light plums/prunes around as well. Aftertaste is relatively mild with only a handful of bitterness from the malt and a mostly sweet caramel and cereal flavour at the very end with nibs of chocolate as well. Overall, a very low-key and easy-drinking beer, still showing some good flavours and a nice body. I sampled this 600 mL bottle purchased from Marche des Sauveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 20-September-2014 for CA$6,00 sampled at home in Washington a few hours after returning from Belgium/The Netherlands and in need of a ’typical’ beer from the Americas - this delivered. Bottled on date (On back) of: 07-July-2014.

sammyboyy (50) - Shawinigan, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
Probablement la meilleur dry stout au Québec. La version en fűt au pub est de loin meilleur qu’en bouteille. On peut goűter le chocolat, le café, légčre amertume, goűt léger et trčs bien balancé. Le palais pour la version en fűt avec de l’azote est sublime, texture crémeuse et une finale effervescente. L’apparence est classique d’une dry stout. Trčs bon produit pour stout ŕ 5%.

adster (475) - HUNGARY - JAN 10, 2015
Fotogén alkatú, szurokszínű kanadai főzet, a kategórián belül szinte festeni sem lehetne szebbet. Pörkölt dió, kakaópor és magas kakaótartalmú étcsokoládé illatát rejti, szépen megkomponált teste tejszerű pályát biztosít a pörkölvények játékának, hamus, fás és földes jegyek keverednek össze, elegánsan siklanak útjukon. Szárazsága a végletekig kihegyezett, lehullott levelek hangulatát rejtő végszavát élvezetes tartalom előzi meg. Bár a típus nem a mérhetetlen izgalmakat tartogató műfajok egyike, ez a főzet a kategória egy igen masszív és hibátlan darabja.
