11.2 oz bottle Label has a man laughing and holding a glass of beer. Pours a nice head that falls into a thin layer and a nice lacing. Smell is very nice: dark, coffee flavors and dark fruit undertones with some spicyness. Taste is very smooth and refreshing, it doesnt have the hard coffee flavors of a regular stout, but it has different flavors of nutmeg and dark fruit tones that are very good. It also has a strong pepper flavor due the higher alcohol content. Mouthfeel is very enjoyable and smooth. It floats down my throat very nicely. I really enjoyed this stout and without a doubt will have another one.

On tap at the Shaper Edge. Pours a wonderful dark reddish brown with a nice light brown head. The aroma is a sweet fruity mix with some burnt malts. The taste is yeast, a semi-sweet slightly burnt malt, some dark fruit, some alcohol warmth and a tiny bitter finish. What a good drink! More Belgian stouts please.

Bottle coutesy of pepsican. Sweet roasted malt, wood and toffee aromas. Brown body color with big beige head on pour. Sweetness laquers the touge with a tobacco flavor. Roated chocolate also present and some dry coffee flavor as well. Sweet tobacco aftertaste lingers on palate and some wet wood aromas from an empty glass below my snoot as I type this wishess for one more.
