3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer is very dark with thin beige head. The aroma is strong with roasted grains - reminiscent of dark toast with hints of molasses and chicory. There is also a distinct fruitiness to the aroma and a noticable whiff of yeast. The flavor is quite nice - it starts bitter sweet on the tip of the tongue like espresso with hints of sugar and cocoa (okay - maybe not that bitter, but you get the idea). On the middle of the tongue are interesting yeast and fruit flavors along with sweet malt flavors. The finish is somewhat dry and bitter with a pleasantly bitter after-taste (blend of hop bitterness and dark chocolate). The mouthfeel is full bodied. Overall, very nice. The label says "mild stout". Considering how roasty it tastes and that the bottle indicated 8.5%ABV, I almost shudder with delight at the thought of their idea of a "strong stout" :)

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with red highlights and a short off-white head. Aroma was soap, funky yeast, marshmallows, prunes, and cocoa. Taste was much better. Rich chocolate, mocha, coffee, and toasty malt. It rapidly turns to cherries, yeast, and caramel/spun sugar/too sweet raisins. Interesting Belgian take on a stout.

Reddish mahogany body with a creamy tan head with great retention Toffee aroma mostly, dark fruit, and yeast. Roasty flavor with sweet dark fruit. A bit dry and watery, but has a soft mouthfeel. Pretty mellow and comes off lighter than a porter even.

Decent stout with the nice flavour of roasted malts. Might have to retry it to give it a fairer rating.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown, fairly bright with healthy, fizzy, light-brown carbonation. Aroma is earthy, mossy, yeasty and refreshing with slight nut and even slighter roast and chocolate. Flavor is of fruity yeast up front with earthy and refreshing yeast notes blending into a clean hop bitterness in finish. Nutty. Less apparent is the roastiness. More of a Dubbel than a stout; it’s not even that dark. It is delicious.

Bottle. I don´t really understand that this one shoud be a stout ? Dark amber with huge brown head. Aroma sweet malt, dates. Taste sweet malty, figs, dates dried fruits. Quite like a "light" quad, but lacks a little in taste and aroma.
