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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark, dark brown color. Smell is fruity, with possibly some coffee and smoke. I tasted some sourness to this, but it was very subtle. Seems like a real stretch calling this a stout. Seemed like a dark belgian strong ale, or even a porter to me. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium mahogany brown body, very light tan-brown, buttery head. Aroma is fine ingredients, sugar, sweet grapes maybe, some tart, acidic notes. Taste is also sweet, well-proportioned with grapes, alcohol, dark honey/molasses and bitter hops, drying coffee-like. Smooth, almost oily on palate. A little too sweet, reminds me of a lot of the Russian/Eastern European porters lately, just with better hops. Not a stout at all. Average.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from aBelgian stout, but in hindsight I should’ve anticipated what I got - this beer is somewhat roasty (like a lot of American stouts) but balanced with a bit of sourness. The beer finishes rather dry, and the fruity sourness in this beer is imparted without any fruity stickiness. All in all this beer is quite solid all the way around, and I’d highly recommend it.
I had this at Roman’s Pub in Milwaukee, served (as always) in appropriate glassware (a Unibroue tulip if I remember correctly). Appearance was black with some red "legs" as the light shone through it.

11.2 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a three inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, yeast and fruit. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a boozy finish. Overall, pretty good.

Nice tasty mild stout. Does have a reddish tint to it, interesting and complex with its flavors. Does have a nice balance to the beer. I plan on having another.

Sweet malty roasty molasses things going on. Orange-brown color. Chocolate in the taste as well with a banana-yeasty finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very dark ruby that has some head that does not stay around for too long. Nose is strong with sweetness and some firm caramel. I get a sense that there is a coffee tone that is very far in the background that is just barely peeking through. Flavor is beautiful. Outstandingly unique. Sweet for a bit, and then the stout characteristics kick in. Slight coffee accents follow the thick sweet and then it ends with a bubbly sensation on your tongue. Almost seems to be a touch of port to it. Feel is extremely well balanced. Slight bubble. Drinkability. This is not one to really drink hard and fast. Definitely a sipper...but sippable for your entire night and then some. Beyond worth trying. If you have the opportunity, trying this is imperative.
