Maak_d (10) - - NOV 21, 2012
Aroma of roasty, chocolate, with a hint of fruity ester. Pours a gorgeous thick head with a boatload of lacing, color appears as a sort of dark dark black red. Taste is very malt forward - roasty and toasty with perhaps a hint of belgian yeast but less than expected. Palate is thick and coating but finishes dry. Very good stout but less Belgian-y than expected.

Alengrin (1254) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Medium-strength stout (something we are not used to anymore in this country after all those strong ones micro breweries make nowadays). Colour as good as black, beige head. Coffee, toasted bread, bitter chocolate, sweetish onset of dark fruits and chocolate but drying in the course of the palate and ending in a strong roasted bitterness making it closer to an Irish-style dry stout than an English-style sweet stout.

domienS (90) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2014
Pours a dark beer with a nice beige head. Smells fruity, sweet and a little bit malty. Has a really fresh aroma for a stout. Tastes like roasted malts but very balanced. Palate is lightly roasted malts. Very accessible and balanced stout.

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Dark brown pour, beige head. Simple and straight forward milk stout. Creamy, very light roasted notes, lactose sugar, cocoa powder. Easy drinking.

corkyrory66 (553) - 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 !!!

Flavours of roast, coffee, bitters, some bay leaf, wood roast, some hints of raisin and berries, very light smokey and some coal.

Douberd (2217) - 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 (137) - 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 (4069) - 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.
