Yves (2491) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2009 Brown coloured beer with a medium diminishing off-white head. Roasted aroma with some malts. Full palate bit bitter and dry. Finish is bitter malty and roasted hinted with some yeast. Nice stout.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Dark red brown body with a fast disappering beige head; Very malty milk chocolate nose with a slight salty chalky background; Quite thin texture still soft, huge carbonation, sweet, slightly salt body; Malt bitter finish that has some length, strange chalk aromas I guess from the shells.

thebeertourist (5046) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2008
From bottle at In de Wildeman. Almost black with a beige head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate and milk. Good milk chocolate and fruity flavours, quite sweet throughout, but some roast adds a bit of bitterness. A bit light-bodied for all the flavours. A strong sweet beer that nonetheless is quite pleasing.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2008
Bière brun foncée, nébuleuse, elle ne laisse pas de mousse, mais une mince dentelle beige persiste. Parfum aux notes surettes et sucrées, prunes, pommes, dattes, caramel. Il y a un peu de fumée. Nuances très intéressantes de salé, suret et sucré. Le palais est frais et vivant. Bonne bière qui se boit bien

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 28, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -Muddy brown coloured, medium sized cappuccino head, dusty light roasted nose. Roasted malts, milk chocolate and dried fruits with notes of prunes and coffee. Oysters-to be honest I haven’t felt anything like that. Overall very good and enjoyable stout.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2008
My Bottom Line:
The candied sweetness of vanilla and milk chocolate personifies this slick and very drinkable strong Stout for sweet teeth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the brown-sleeved blackness.
-Diplomatic roastiness and earthiness stand nearby.
-Small, friendly bubbles enhance the slick impression provided by the dextrins and malty flavor profile.
-There is no sign of the alcohol in the flavor profile.
-The flavor profile is mostly sweet, but never overly so.
-There are fruity undertones in the vanilla-like sweetness.
-This is not super complex for a strong Stout, but it remains quite enjoyable and well crafted.

Bottle; best before 2010.

Dark beer with a small head. A typical stout with coffee and caramel notes. A very long lasting aftertaste

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2008
bottle- pours light black dark tan. no head. nose is wet leaves. muddy murky earth. root beer. peach. taste is light butter. and cloyingly sweet. what a let down. way to sweet with only a subtle hint of tart to balance.

leaparsons (8669) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown and purple with an off-white foam. Aromas are sweet and smoky with traces of salt. Smooth chocolate with some peppery notes. Flavours are smooth chocolate and light coffee with caramel. Spicy and sweet.
