My night-cap on 23rd Oct 2012 in the excellent Cafe De Grendelpoort in Valkenburg, Holland. 33cl bottle poured with its sediment into the correct brewery glass. The beer poured almost black, very dark brown maybe (the pub is dark to start with): on top a thin tanned foam. Mixed bag in the nose and tastes: malts first and foremost, mild liquorice front with sweeter molassses taking over, a mini hop, dry finish completes the flavours but there is a lot more going on inbetween. My bottle had a nice, but unexpected and unusual ’semi-sour’ feel (for a Stout) to it throughout the tasting. I also thought the alcohol level isn’t hidden to any great extent. Complexed and different with a variety of fruit notes and malty levels of roasted/toasted chocolate and coffee.

Nice looking pour from bottle into Chimay glass. Dark brown, tan head - smooth and creamy. Pretty hot - very sweet. Slight harshness but evens out as you drink it. Overall pretty nice beer.

mmyohane (70) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Aroma has roasted malts and chocolate. Pours black with a small head that leaves some lacing. Taste has medium sweetness, light bitterness and light sourness. Some salt or umami also. Full bodied with average carbonation and bitter / salty finish. Overall nice individual components but the combination of salt and sweetness doesn’t work for me.
