Nice balanced beer, but lacks something special. It has a malts and grains base, some mild spices and a caramel hint to it.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue to it. Small tan head that diminishes, with normal lacing. The aromas are reminiscent of tomato juice, rich and fruity. The flavours are also fruity, this time apricot is especially notable, with a mild spiciness to it too (but not peppery, just a round nutmeg-like tone--not as powerful as nutmeg either), along with a soft nutty background. A hop bitterness bites in during the long finish, very pleasant. Creamy texture, but not mouth-filling. Medium carbonation. Medium body, not yet medium-full. The alcohol, 6.5º, is detectable and not perfectly balanced, which gives it a very slight alcohol flavour. I thought that I should write that because, coming from 9º and 11º ones I tried that hid the alcohol surprisingly well, this was noticeable. However, not an unpleasant taste of excess alcohol at all, it did not ruin the beer. Just a remark.

In La Trappe Glass. Browsing Birraire. At first it reminded me the disgustimg taste of guinness vagely, but as it warms it gets better, that taste dissappears and becomes a beer that never tires you

Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head and some lacing. Aroma is lots of phenols from the Belgian yeast, dark fruits, and toffee. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, toffee, caramel, and a much more muted Belgian yeast. I enjoy this a lot, but the aroma is way too sharp.

Suave y dulce pero sin empalagar, aroma y complejidad sin caer en el terreno más fuerte de las Stout. Para beber a todas horas.

Rjen (24) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2015
Brown with a short lasting off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus, cane sugar and minerals. Taste is sweet, mild bitter and light acidic. Body is light and texture is oily.

CurbDog (27) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
Big mousy off-white head. Great lacing. Very dark brownish ruby. Clear. Banana, spice, caramel aroma. Matching flavours, slight smoke. Banana esters a little too strong for my preference of this style, mutes some of the nice dark fruit character. Med carbonation. Med mouthfeel.

On tap. Pours a pitch black body with a healthy white head. Initially a weak malt flavour, slowly developing darker bitter flavours with hints of banana and caramel. Small hints of coffee, vanilla and chocolate.
