An interesting hybrid. Kind of an English malt character but with Belgian yeast. Roasted malt and nuts. Big frothy head and black in color. A nice beer, but shouldn’t it be an imperial at this abv?

Had 6/20 at Dulle Griet in Gent. Pors dark ruby caramel with a minimal tan head and beautiful lacing. Roast aroma full of dark fruits and caramel. taste is fairly complex with some vineous notes. Don’t know that I’d call this a stout. Pretty thick mouthfeel.

Someone below referred to it as "awkward" which seems right to me. It’s got a great aroma, and there are lots of flavors here, but I can’t quite tell what it wants to be--trying too much to be a bit of everything? Roasty, yeasty, hoppy, malty, fruity, with a bit of cola in the mix. Very interesting, but just doesn’t fully come together for me.

Bottle. One of the stouts I’ve personally most enjoyed. Pours a dark body with small off-white lacing. The aroma is slightly roasty. The flavor is also roasty - but with a spritzer carbonation similar to Unibroue beers. Couldn’t really taste the alcohol either.

Bottle. Dark pour with red around the edges, yellow-white head. Carmel malt, vanilla, toffee, belgian yeast. Prunes and dates in the nose also. Maple syrup. Flavor is toasty malt with a sharp bitter finish. This is more of a super dry and toasty, dark chocolatey BSA than a stout to me.

11.2oz bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a murky dark brown with a big billowing beige head. An insane amount of lacing was left on the glass. Big nose of sweet malts and dark fruits. A very full bodied beer with a sweet, lingering after taste.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2008
[Bottle] pours a hazy brown with a medium tan head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is pretty sweet. Roasted barley, maybe a little lactose, some oats, and toasted caramel. Mouthfeel is really nice and light with plenty of carbonation. Flavor is very nice and rich, with tons of roasted barley flavors, sweet chocolate, and a hint of coffee.

Brown pour with a thin tan head. Carrot cake on the nose. Watery texture. Boozy sugar with molasses and brown sugar.

First i think of english brown-ale, but i guess this has to much rosted malt to be that, so it must be a stout, or something like that. Notes of coca, and dark rosted malt, but not so much sweet. the alc. give this good volume.
