Really really great beer. Foam is delightful, light brown. Smell has hints of coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts and toasted bread. Taste is round, fulfilling and strong - just the way I like it. Highly recommended as a beer for some nice red meat!

Donkerbruin bier met beige wandklevende schuimkraag. Geur: brood, moutig en wat rood fruit (framboos). Smaak: zoetig - bitterig, wat geroosterde mout. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: iets bitterig.

AssKicker (127) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
Bue à la bouteille. Plutôt torréfiée au nez, dotée d’une belle mousse, mais douce en bouche, ce qui est du coup assez surprenant. Grosse rondeur qui masque bien le haut degré d’alcool. Grosse présence des malts caramels, houblons totalement absents. Bière agréable.

Bit lacking in aroma but a nice moderate dark fruity, boozy taste and moderate body.

I think this bottle has been aged several years, but no date to confirm. From Pacific Liquor in San Diego. The abv is 8.2% in a 750 ml bottle with a raised decal on the dark brown glass. First class appearance, dark brown with a reddish hue...sustaining, creamy, tan head with a blanket of lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, cherry, raisin, bubblegum. Very similar to a doppelbock in many aspects. There is a slight chocolate presence. Smooth, sweet and fruity finish. Would repeat.

Una Strong Ale oscura que hace una guiño a las mild stout. Con una espuma marrón muy cremosa y un fuerte carácter de malta, con ligero toque a tostado. Su amargor es ligero y se acentúa al final. Tiene aroma de maltas y madera quemada que se complementa con un toque de chocolate. El sabor consigue un equilibrio entre la malta tostada y el café con ese presencia de levadura belga. Amargura presente en todo momento. Final con regusto complejo y matices de regaliz.

Let sprittet med en klar lugt af frugter som dog ikke kan smages i øllen. De 8 procent kan smages

Interesting brew. Bottle reads 9% Mild Stout but I can’t find a reason to believe this is one and the same. I found there to be more going on in my glass than what I see in the deScription...I sensed a fruitiness. No bitter though not sweet, just mild and easy to drink. Though not a brew that I would seek out...I do enjoy the malt of this and didn’t have bit of a problem drinking it.

Pours dark brown with ample tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, malts, and maybe chocolate. Taste is rich, Belgian-like but darker. Smooth and drinkable. An interesting and tasty brew. Thumbs up.
