nihtila (1317) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2015
20.9.2014. Very dark beer with big brownish head. Roasty aroma with coffee, brown sugar. Taste has dried fruits, plum, slight liquorice, hops. Quite smooth. Not maybe bipa style but rather complex and nice. Could be heavier with the abv.

Tometclo (37) - FRANCE - MAR 19, 2015
Une mousse abondante de couleur crème, une bière couleur caramel, le café arrive sur la fin, laissant une sensation de sécheresse. Ce n’est pas le style que j’apprécie le plus. 33Cl Biérocratie

JorgeLee (1340) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Deep black colour, decent head, some burgundy in the bottom of the glass. Full, complex taste, dark malts, mild marmite, bitter, herbal hop, some yeast spice. Good beer, I’m still not convinced this style really delivers though.

artemb (34) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 27, 2015
Aroma: complex roasted and burned notes, grassy hop, cacao beans, roasted hazelnuts. Taste: Sweet with light to moderate spicy bitterness. Slightly oily aftertaste with some yeasts, spice herbs, some dry fuits, some coffee. Alcohol is very light. Overall this looks like a belgian-style stout with beligan yeasts and grassy hops (what is slightly unusual for this style). Very good.

Bottle from Hippo Beers. Dark brown body with a large beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of Coca-Cola, coffee grounds, fig and Marmite. Flavour of earthy hops, raisin, pine and plum. Quite boozy. Medium body with a smooth texture. Light fizz. An unusual, tasty beer.
