2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with huge tan head. Smell of dark roasted malts and some chocolate. Taste follows up. Thin to medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Taste improves letting it adjust to room temperature. Doesn?t feel like a stout eventhough it contains everything a stout needs. Might be the lacking of body and the high carbo. Just okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Very Dark Brown (almost Black) in colour. Malty; roasted/burnt malts, brown sugar, caramel, light chocolate and coffee. Spicy, peppery. Fruity; dark fruits. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Sweetish roast malty throughout, leading to a dry bitter finish. Very tasty considering low ABV. Decent.

Typical Belgian stout. Has the roastedness, but also a sweet yeasty taste. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 3-07-2010 (Flip-top bottle) When poured, this beer has a large very fizzy tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque dark brown body with a red tint, and no lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste mimics the aromas plus light coffee bitterness. This beer has a short dry finish. The palate is smooth, watery and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied and borders on being more on the light side. Overall, this beer is quaffable, almost too quaffable, due to the thin texture. It is worth trying nonetheless.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl. bottle sampled thx! to Kraddel. No BBF. Very dark brown with a pretty big, descending tanned head. Nose is meaty with soy sauce (pretty odd for a beer of this ABV), lightly milky, lots of liquorish, roasted & charred malts, the milky notes donít mix well with the rest with is not too stellar either. Taste is soy sauce upfront, burned coffee grounds, overripe fruits, liquorish, finishes like spoiled milk (in a way that makes me think of an infection) with burned grounds. Touch ligher, coffee grounds, grainy body. This one didnít feel all that all-right to me.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown beer with a good tan head. Smells chocolate, fruity and coffee. Tastes roasty, chocolate and coffee. Way too much carbo, thin body and a watery texture. The carbo destroys this beer.
