3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black bier with big bubbles and a nice bubbly head.
Smell is dominated by milk chocolate. Further, liquorice, leather, sour wood and some subtle hints of coffee. Salty, with some wood and light citric fruitiness.
Balance is brilliant: fizzy, salty, subtly sour-bitter and a refreshing wateriness. Taste adds fizziness and a nice dry sweetness.
Beautiful Belgian - stout fusion, and one of my favourite stouts.

Yeasty stout with indeed a salty touch of oyster. Gives the beer a tasty edge and makes it stand out from all the other Belgian stouts.

33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Dark ruby-brown color, high rocky brownish creamy head, very good lacing. Aroma dry fruits, roasty in the nose, flavor is medium roasted coffee, roasted malt, moderated licorice, light dates. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body with slightly watery sidetaste, creamy texture, average carbonation, moderated bitter finish. Fine dessert stout, not very strong flavor and quite simple aroma.

Bottle. Aroma very sweet milk chocolate, toffee, tempting. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is chocolate and biscuity. On the thinner side, but nicely drinkable. Quite good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer with a fading small lightly beige head. On the nose roasted malt aromas with some oyster traces and sea salt arise all pretty well balanced. The beer offers a full body with a lightly slick texture. Roasted bitterness is paired with hints of sweetness leading to a long pleasant yet soft finish.

Not what I’m looking for in a stout. A little pale, not much roast make goodness. Quite spicy and sweet but a bitter finish. Too much alcohol too.

Donker bier met een zachte smaak. Lekker bij bijv zalm. Nauwelijks reuk. Lekker aangenaam bier.
