3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one sports a sasparilla body, topped by a decent head. Aroma of molasses, anise, and roast barley deliver a moderate complexity. The body is sweet, with candi notes, some root beer, and perhaps even bubblegum. The finish contains a touch of skunk cabbage. A uniquely Belgian stout.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
ASPETTO: nera, praticamente impenetrabile. Schiuma decisamente abbondante e di color nocciola, fine e persistente. AROMA: fresco, liquoroso, tostato, floreale. Molto particolare e intenso. GUSTO: Si ripresentano i sentori avvertiti al naso, in maniera molto forte. In più si avverte una strana acidità che rende la birra molto particolare e un po’ strana a dire il vero. Una nota negativa al corpo, troppo acquoso per il tipo di birra e la graduazione. Per il resto, sicuramente una birra particolare e saporita.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, like a cross between a Dubbel and a Plum Stout . Cocoa, gravy and plum on the nose, dry-sweet and faintly tart with a roasty choc and wine edge. Delicious.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled@Delirium Café, Brussels. Black colour, mediumized beigeish brown head. Aroma is bigtime diacetyl, some roasted malts, toffee and butter scotch. Flavour is big time butter scotch with some berries, mild wooden notes along with some yeasty notes to it. With the yeast in the butter scotch wasn’t as disturbing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bb 2016-05-05. Opaque ebony with a thin disc of foam on top. Nose is tart berry and light funk with a bit of espresso and cream. Taste is the same plus some oxidized apple and red wine. Finish shows some milk chocolate and earthy mineral. Near-medium body is smooth and wispy and has a good balance. I think this was a bit infected.

33 cl bottle @ Delirium Café. BBE 10.02.2017. Aroma has strong butterscotch tones and some diacetyl. Feels English. Flavour has very strong butterscotch, some bush leaves and herbs. Also licorice. Like an English stout with some herbs added. Not my thing, becomes unpleasant after some sips.
