Black colour with a beige head. Coffee, roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium body and a dry texture. Low carbonation. Rich coffee and roasted malt flavour. Not very fit together with food, but nice in the evening with a good book.

bartlebier (3504) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2012
Pitch-black, opaque, roasted malt- chocolate bitter, uncompromising imperial stout, extremely smooth and velvety, with absolutely no hints of alcohol at 9% and no residual cloying sweetness. Took me 2 attempts to get into this one’s slow blossoming taste variety but the 2nd 75cl bottle (bought at the brewer’s MiOrge MiHoublon in Arlon) had me hooked for the rest of the evening/night. World-class, not for beginners.

SaintMatty (6846) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
Draught (Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels) - Black with a foamy tan head. Roasted and chocolatey aroma with notes of cocoa and liquorice. Rich, chocolatey and slightly sweet taste with notes of chocolate, hops, coffee, soap and liquorice. Very rich and full-bodied.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2012
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Black with a very nice, light brown and creamy head. Bitter chocolate aroma galore, hints of smoke and fruit. Well-balanced. Dark and mysterious.
