fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
lot 330, bottled 28/09/12, bb 04/2014

Dark brown color, almost black, with generous creamy head. Mild aroma of cacao and light aroma of roasted malts; a bit dusty. The mouthfeel is dry, but smooth, there is some roasted malt and some chocolate; also a light astringency, from the yeast maybe; the final is drier and weaker.
An average Stout, with a chocolate hint, but without vibe.

3fourths (8029) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2014
33cl bottle from Brasserie Thiriez. Aroma comes across with a strong black patent chicory roast quality, chocolate in the sense of chocolate malt but not in the sense of nibs, which is a good thing IMO. It’s a bit too burnt / char-heavy, but otherwise enjoyable: dusty, herbal, clove-like... In the mouth it’s medium bodied, off-dry, roast-heavy with low hop bitterness. Creamy carbonation release but the mouthfeel is more husky / starchy afterwards into the finish.

Benzai (8226) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Dark brown to black color, medium sized lightly creamy beige head that lasts for quite a while and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, sweetish, cocoa, a hint of iron, liquorice. Taste malts, dark malts, lightly cocoa, lightly bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Thought it would be more outspoken. A decent beer though.

DutchDrebus (4018) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle @ benzai. Pitch black with a medium sized beige head. Smells soapy, roasty, chocolate, sweetish. Tastes sweet, some iron, cacao, hint of liquorice, slightly roasty. Medium body, soft to medium carbo.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours dark brown with a large off-white head. Nose shows subtle nutty and toast notes, Belgian phenols and soft cocoa. Flavours include more nutty malt, cocoa, spicy noble hops and a Belgian note reminiscent of a tripel. Carbonation is too high.

mike_77 (3120) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Dark red-brown colour with lots of residue from the bottle hanging in suspension in the glass. Quite a strong aroma. Roasted malts, coffee, cocoa. Smooth texture. Flavour has some sweet cocoa, perhaps some vanilla too.

thebeertourist (4816) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Dark brown with a big yellowish head. Roasted and sweet malts throughout. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Taboada (332) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 2, 2014
Tasted on tap at 02/06/2014. Black Colour with a white beige head. Aroma of chocolate and light caramel. Taste is very sweet with predominance of roasted malts and milk chocolate. Aftertaste is lightly waterly and this is the reason of the low score on the taste. With a most intense aftertaste this beer would be awesome. Next one please!

Idiosynkrasie (3805) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
330ml bottle. Opaque, quasi black colour with late awakening, huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma has a fruity cocoa touch with hints of apple purée, a a "background-ish" touch of jalapeño. Taste is slightly metallic, chocolately dark malty, some dry cocoa, very cautious fruity hints of red berries. Imparts a sentiment of "I would like to give a better score", but even ample deliberation can’t hoist any vindicatory aspect.

JulienHuxley (3054) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Opaque cloudy brown with foamy off white head. Aroma of cocoa, very powdery, chocolate, light roast, light fruitiness. Taste is sweet, chocolaty, light-roasty character, a bit yeasty on the palate. Palate is med bodied, light carbonation. Pretty easy drinking brown stout.
