3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jet-black beer, small beige head. Lovely aroma, malty, coffee, caramel, red fruits, burned malts. Flavour light sweet, slighlty sourish. Reminding of liquorice water and diluted coffee. Quite light body, but not bad for the ABV. Really nice for a 2% ABV brew. Interesting, great little trick, but not sure if this mini stout would hold up as a session beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ ACBF 2012: black with a huge, thick mocha head, sure looks like a stout, smells like bitter coffee beans, mocha, cacao, taste is light upfront, lightly roasted malts & berries, followed by lots of cold coffee, touch grains & ashes, body is touch light upfront, like a great cold coffee, not sure where this fits in but it is quite good for its alcohol percentage, not sure if it would hold up to a regular stout, probably not or I would want to drink one or more glasses of this but technically this is a quite nice feat

Draught at ACBF 2012. Black - big brown head. Burned and roasted notes, licorice, salty, cornflakes, caramel notes, thin, bitterness. Thin and boring. Black water. Not bad - just boring.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Very thick coffee-cream head over jet-black beer. Chocolate, liquorice and coffee in the nose. Sourish, stout-like, but especially lots and lots of jap/liquorice. Not much to back that up... Light body, but not empty. Nice as an in-between, but apart as a true session beer for a long night, not really what you want to continue drinking.

Clear dark brown beer, no head, small brown rim. Aroma: lots of caramel, vanilla, mocha, pretty sweet. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: mocha, slight hoppiness, some coffee. Aftertaste: coffee, little bitter and a sour twist. Not bad for a stout, amazing for the alcohol in it!

Draft @ the struise family farm. Roasted barely on the nose very mild aroma. Pours black with dense tan head that dissipates. Coffee and roasted malts upfront somewhat of a thin body but still very flavorful. An excellent session beer.

Ja hagues estat impossible si aquesta cervesa hagués continuat millorant lo immillorable. És recent la falta d’alcohol. De toptes maneres la millor cervesa que he provat mai amb 2 graus.

Borefts Beer Festival 3. Opaque black beer, tan head. Fresh minerally palate. Pleasantly tangy and very mild dark malt. Plummy fruits underneath. Crisp, fresh and tasty! Urbain can do low alcohol as well as super high and all inbetween!
