3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is rich sweet malt, light chocolate, light smoky notes. The flavour is moderate sweet with a slightly light, roasty, burnt treacle, yeast, ight hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Fairly drinkable but a little light and lacking flavours that I like!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic sweet stout with a long history, named after Buffalo Bill when he came to town in Sint-Lievens-Esse more than a century ago. Nowadays effectively labelled ’stout’ but till recently, this was a kind of Flemish sweet stout, an old-fashioned style nobody drinks anymore, in disguise. Bronze beer with medium, light beige head; caramelly maltiness, candi syrup sweetness, some fruity esters, biscuit, light and thin body, smooth, lightly bitterish finish; a bit straightforward but this is perfectly acceptable for this particular style; simple, but tasty and ’honest’. A flashback into Belgian brewing history, like many old regional beers from old family brewers that are still kept alive.
