Bottle. Bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a deep mahogany red with a big whipped-cream-ish off white head with big bubbles and good lacing. Aroma is very fruity, with prunes, raisins and plums prevailing. Some yeast, strawberries and roasted malts as well. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavour is right the way, I want it! Vinious, dark fruits, roasted malts, slight tartness, lots of bitter dark chocolate. Some nuttyness and yeast as well. This is realy a very great beer - and should be a Foreign Stout in my book.

Lubiere (11380) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2007
A dark brown ale with a thick moka head. Pleasant sweet smokey malt aroma with notes of coffee , bread and figs. In mouth, a light sweet chocolate malt with roasted malts, peaty notes, figs, light coriander notes, and warming alcohol. The body is enticing and keeps you interested. A rather complex belgian nterpretation of a stout.

Pretty strong for a "mild stout". Biting aftertaste reminds me of a sour milk stout. Definitely notice some brown sugar and earthy tones in this one. Rated 9/20/08
