Intresting beer this,didnt know it was a stout until i started putting this rating in, and had i known so it may have been different. Pours excellent with good lacing. Aroma is malty and nutyy, with dark fruits kicking in behind a mainly yeasty background. Taste is very similar though the carbonation is harsher than i expected from its appearance. Good beer, but i thought i was drinking a brune.

Robe brune aux reflets acajou surmontée d’une mousse brune qui s’estompe. Arômes de café, de chocolat et de cerise. Saveurs de café, de chocolat, de sucre, de cerise et de tabac. Texture moelleuse. Plus une belgian dark qu’une stout par exemple...

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2005
Bottle. Dark color, nice beige head fully lasting and nice lacing. Malt caramel, chocolate, yeast and alcohol aroma. Taste of malt caramel (scotish), wiskey and alcohol. Fully bodied, nice beer but i tought it was a strong ale and not a stout. Bière de couleur foncé avec un bon collet beige qui perdure et qui colle bien au verre. Odeur de malt caramel, chocolat, levure et alcool. Au goût, c’est le malt caramel (écossais), le wiskey et alcool. Elle est bien réussis mais, je pensait que c’était une ale forte de type belge et non une stout.

A Mes rate: Spicy and minty with a touch of the De Dolles about it. Very drinkable. A more mellow Belgian stout.

sayravai (4671) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2005
(Bottled, 8.5% ABV) Very dark brown color with a small, lacy, beige head. Roasted-malty aroma with salty licorice and dark chocolate hints. Some sweetish, smooth alcohol, too. Very malty and roasty-ashy, yet a bit raw flavor with a quite strong alcohol kick in the finish. Quite full-bodied, ashy and roasty, dryish palate with slightly fizzy-foamy carbonation. Not at all a bad try for a Belgian stout, but could use some more body and less carbonation.

Bottle: Deep ruby brown with a lasting tan head. Wonderful caramel, plum and chocolate aroma. Flavour is a blend of plums, caramel and a hint of port. Some spicy notes there too. Tasty!

Draught, @ a Belgium Beer Fest in East Croydon.
The first beer of several in what was my official comeback to the rating seen. A lovely decadent dark brown opener. Dark brown, with lovely form and shap. Dry tabaco flavours with hints of noble spice. Very exciting.
