caesar (4954) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
Bottled from Burg Bieren, BB 03 Oct 2015, large sample, served into a tulip glass. Dark brown color, medium frothy light-brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, slight coffee, sweet candy, hint of mocha, not as much roasted malts. Taste is bit bitter, medium sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Like their Magma, with a Belgian twist to an American style, but with the balance on the right side. It still is a RIS, but with some sweet candy notes. Very likeable.

raoulgreco (10) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle Moeder. Pours a dark blackish color with a brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, lots of dark fruit, sweet sugary notes, chocolate, coffee and some liqourice. The flavor again is very dark fruity with some Beglian yeasty flavors, along with brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and the liqourice. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid Belgian Stout.

Plovmand (6320) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. The aroma is sweet roasted malt with chocolate and bread notes. The flavor is toasted caramel, roasted malt and chocolate. Hoppy notes in the finish. Kind of mixture of a barley wine and a stout.
