kajser27 (641) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 12, 2015
Black colored, frothy tan head, nice lasting and lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, some yeast and citrus hops, bit resin. Taste is medium to low sweet chocolate, some brown sugar, lots of coffee and some roasted malt. Quite bitter coffee dry finish and aftertaste. Medium to light bodied and average carbonation. Hops were more pronounced in the aroma than the flavor which is dominated by ground coffee. (bottle, Delirium Caffe, Brussels)

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mademoiselle Haddock. Pours black but gushy. Herbal plummy aroma. Quite a complex taste considering it’s just 4.3%. Grains, coffee with a big, dry tobacco finish. Not too much citra but still quite an interesting one.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
0.75 litre bottle: bought at De Bierboom, Brugge and shared between five at the Aug 2015 Shrewsbury bottle exchange evening. It was a gusher, so each glass had a huge rich tanned head on it’s swirling black beer. Nose of chocolate and tobacco, earthy and peaty. The taste followed the aroma closely ending with a dry finish. Good effort and plenty of flavour for such a weak ABV Belgian beer.

Super agréable cette stout ni trop dry ni trop impériale. Généreuse, douce et crémeuse, sans excès de : torréfaction, douceur, alcool, amertume. Par contre la mienne à abondamment moussé à l’ouverture : gaffe !

alexsdad06 (7462) - Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Draft to taster at Liberty’s from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, nutty character, some chocolate, earthy, a splash of citrus, mild to moderate earthy bitterness to the finish, decent for a lower abv stout.

kermis (8085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle at Rootz. Pours dark brown with massive lively tan head. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, overripe dark fruits and a touch of citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodies with way too high carbonation.

MonsterMagnet (753) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle, pours dark brown with a beige head. Coffee, roast, resin, citrus, brown sugar. Medium sweet and bitter, suprising body given the abv (4.3% on the bottle), lingering bittersweet roasted coffee finish.
