gwpom (297) - Akron, New York, USA - APR 30, 2009
11.2 oz bottle. Nice dark Belgian beer but I would not consider this a stout, mild or otherwise. It is a nice brew however, and I’m glad I got the four pack. Smooth with a great kick, recommended.

Pours a murky dark brown with a firm beige head. The aroma is medium sweet with chocolate and coffee as well as some earthy hops. The flavor is roasted and malty with coffee, chocolate caramel and raisins. More bitter toward the finish.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2009
bottle from the goat shared at the bockyhorsey household tasting...

pours a hazy reddish brown... dark amber black with a lasting off white film where the head once stood. initial aroma is a bit cheese-y... this turns into a mild sourness which joins with grainy silage, chocolate, some woody bugs from the yeast and something akin to rubber or tar. the palate is a bit sweet... fruity sweet with an underlying sourness, toasted nuts, chocolate, grain, wood and a sharp spiciness on the finish. the body is lighter with more carbonation than i would have expected but that keeps it easier to suck down... 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

sebletitje (9268) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2009
pours dark brown, with frothy white head. This bottle seem to have some age on it. The aroma was just superb, light bitter chocolate with aged fruits nose of dark cherries giving the aroma a subtle oak like nose. Taste was outstanding as well, very sweet, plenty of dark fruits, Starts off sweet followed by light bitter notes finishing with a light coat of chocolate, cocoa nibs mouthfeel. Enjoyable from beginning to end

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2009
One of my few contributions to the bockyhorsey tasting. Pours a super dark brown with thin white head to cover. Aroma is of chocolate and a light sour funk...this should be interesting... Taste is caramel, nuts, funky sourness, some oak, and a bit of diacetyl. Quite a bubbly and strange concoction, and nothing like a stout. Tasty nonetheless.

BiddleBrau (1163) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
11.2 oz bottle at East Side B. Café in NYC - Clear brown (or is it reddish highlights? – can’t tell with these lights) and a nice creamy head. Sweet chocolate/malty aroma. Big malty flavor with underlying hop spiciness. Although the label classifies this as a ‘mild stout’ it is reminiscent of a dopple bock to my given the high level of malt sweetness.
