bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours deep clear brown with substantial mocha head and lacing. The intoxicating aroma was strongly of roasted malts with a bit of molasses or toffee. Flavor was richly endowed with roasted malt and some dark fruits. The sweetness was happily restrained. This was delicious and drinkable and I’ll definately seek it out again.

Pours a cloudy dark brown with tan head. Sweetness, chocolate, bread, and biscuit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a bready choclatey sweetness.

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours a very dark color with a huge head. Aroma is chocolate, bread, malt, stone fruit, cacao bean bitter, roasty, nutty. Taste is chocolate, coffee, bread, raisins, cacao beans, roasty, butty, overall just huge malts. Overall a fantastic sweet stout, the style is sweet by nature so with that in mind this is awesome.

Ulysse (299) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2015
Dark color with a brown head. Thin bubbles that stick to the glass. Candy sugar aroma. Roasted taste. A bit watery. A tad light for a stout.

Beerhunter111 (10497) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2015
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein fast schwarzes Bier mit einer ordentlichen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, Schokolade, würzig. Geschmack würzig röstmalzig, leichter Rauch, Schokolade, auch zum Ende hin wieder leicht rauchig.

BVBEERbE (37) - BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2015
Gusher but a 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

tricksta_p (1955) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, sweet malts, chocolate, some coffee. Flavour is roasty and sweet, with a light bitter finish. A bit on the thin side. Nice and easily drinkable Stout.

Alengrin (3240) - 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 (226) - 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 (10280) - 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.

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 !!!
