BillKismet (3520) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2015
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.

Lele (256) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 30, 2015
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 piů si avverte una strana aciditŕ 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.

BeerViking (3263) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
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.

oh6gdx (22983) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
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.

Arve_Christian (3985) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Black color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; malty, licorice, dried fruits, cherry and nice yeast influence. Medium/ full body & complexity. Some sourness and bitterness- balances very well. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nearbeer (4239) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2015
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.

laiti (7642) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
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.

wlajwl (4695) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Aroma is bandaid, paint and a hint of Belgian yeast. The flavor is fruit/citrus, bandaid, malts and a mix of tart and slight sweetness in the finish.
