fantti (763) - FINLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin tumman punaruskeana ja kirkkaana, 3 sormen paksuinen vaahto jättää vahvaa pitsiä. Tuoksussa on vahvaa marjaisuutta, makeaa tummaa hedelmää, paahdettua sokeria ja hiven mausteista yrttisyyttä. Maussa jatkuu sama marjaisuus ja tummaa rypäleisyyttä, joiden alla on yrttisyyttä ja lakritsista juurisuutta. Makeaa otettakin on, muttei liikaa. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen, makeahko ja yllättävänkin helposti juotava. Enemmän vahva belgi kuin portteri, marjat ja rypäleet eniten esillä. Pelottavan helposti juotava.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2005
Very dark brown with intens creamy brown head. Typical stout aroma’s of burned malts, black chocolate, and fresh roasted coffee-beans. It has a nise and expressive nose with dominant burned hints and also some herbal fresh accents. That taste is round and elegant for this type of beer. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy texture, chocolate and coffee taste and elegant bitterness.

Barwa: ciemna, pod światło rubinowa, lekko zmętniona. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, gęsta i obfita. Aromat: ciemne słody, lekka paloność, czekolada, melanoidyny oraz karmel. Początkowo kuszący, ale po chwili dochodzą do tego nuty miodowe (utlenienie) oraz metaliczne, co potwierdził test skórny. Smak: pełne, dość słodki, czekoladowe z alkoholową końcówką i wyczuwalna lekką goryczką. Niestety nieco miodowe, na szczęście mnogość ciemnych akcentów przykrywa metaliczność. Piwo kupione trochę przypadkiem ze względu na "okazyjną" cenę, związaną ze zbliżającym terminem minimalnej przydatności do spożycia. Piłem je już wcześniej i wywarło na mnie dobre wrażenie. Obecnie nie było złe, jednak nuty utlenienia były dość wyraźne. Ogólnie zatem nie najgorzej, ale chyba nie o to chodzi żeby kupować piwa nieco "uszkodzone" nawet za niższą cenę.

bmerz (728) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark almost opaque brown with reddish large and fully lasting frothy head leaving nice lace. The aroma is a soapy fresh pealed orange, banana, light chocolate, and roast. The flavor is fairly sweet but well balanced by light roast bitterness orange finish. The mouthfeel is lively, fresh, soft, but with heavier sticky finish. It’s fairly unique and quite refreshing while having a robust flavor. Seems very well constructed.

The Belgium’s do know how to do it right, and this one is a great example. The flavor is special not like any other stout.
