corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - APR 5, 2014
Cette bière n’est pas du tout un « sweet stout », comme le site la classifie, mais plutôt un « sour stout » par la dégustation … En fait, comme indiqué sur la nouvelle étiquette beaucoup plus psychédélique que celle du site (avec un joueur de flûte de pan chevelu et un peu hippy...), c’est un « belgian stout »... Voilà, c’est dit... Couleur marron très profond, quasi totalement opaque. Bulles fines pas vives tout au fond. Mousse beige moyen à très gros flocons en bas, crémeuse en haut. Arômes sur l’aigreur d’un lambic, vieux fût mouillé, cerises du Nord. 1ère bouche souple sur du café (mais pas un grand cru!!), aigreur du lambic. Arrière-bouche moka, mais avec une pointe de moisi, assez désagréable. 2ème sur un fût avec beaucoup de tanins rêches, café arabica bas de gamme. 3ème où l’aigreur est encore plus prenante. Arrière-bouche où les goûts se chevauchent, un peu indéfinissables. La longueur n’arrange rien. La levure est d’une souche bizarre … (vous avez dit bizarre?). L’alcool tellement banal (5,5 % abv) ne peut absolument rien sauver. La finale, n’en parlons pas. CONCLUSION : drôle de bête que cette bière !! Elle pourrait rivaliser avec les lambics les plus aigres... Elle est imprécise au maximum, instable, et n’offre aucune finale.... Je comprends qu’elle donne le blues !!!

Douberd (4403) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
330 ml bottle at home, into a snifter, ABV 5.5% Very dark brown colour on the body, huge tan head, thick, with excellent retention, leaving light lacing on the glass after it has collapsed. Aroma is sweet, toasted malts, light olive pit at least at the beginning, oats, light chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, light bitter chocolate, oats, coffee that brings a moderate bitterness. Medium body, good carbonation. Very good, highly drinkable.

Mpuntmuts (142) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2014
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.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
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.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2014
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.

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 don’t 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 didn’t feel all that all-right to me.
