Bottle - under the Barbe Black moniker. Black pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with ripened dark fruits, yeast notes, soft chocolate, cocoa and mild roasted malt. Taste is chocolate candy, roasted malt, light coffee, dark fruits, yeast notes and cocoa. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation.

Idiosynkrasie (3249) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, hints of red fruit, a slightly metallic touch, some dust. Taste is initially fruity, dark malty, notes of red berries, later dry, slightly roasty, minimally metallic; lively to fizzy carbonation. Not overly stout-ish, too highly carbonated.

Csouye (21) - OLNE, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2014
Pas un Stout irlandais, un Stout belge, avec tout ce que cela comporte en saveurs riches, un rien moelleuse...

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Fruity, spicy nose. Belgian stout. Some berries, honey, chocolate, orange. Shiny pitch black with a nice lacy head. Sweet and spicy, fruity, jammy, berries. Not really a stout, but more like a slightly roasty Belgian dark. Tasty though a bit simple, and light-bodied.

freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 8, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur noire intense et une mousse assez blanche et qui descend pas trop vite, en bouche il y a une attaque sur le café mais elle se compléxifie en chauffant, ça attaque sur les noix et ça se termine sur le miel très sympa

Super qualité. Équilibrée et complexe, élégante. Une stout efficace et surprenante.

Icedwarf (110) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Smak heeft veel weg van Guiness, alleen iets zoeter. Sterke rooksmaak met fruitige ondertoon.

after4ever (5935) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013
330. Labeled as Barbe Black for the US market. Pours a grainy dark black with a light thin creamy tan head. Nice big roasty nose, black bread, grainy like a stout, fairly reserved ester profile. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Roasty black bread mid palate. Very pleasant and flavorful. Long roasty sweet malty finish.

Grzesiek79 (2969) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Dobre i szczegolnie piekna piana. W tym piwie to sie wyroznia. Wilelka i nawet pare minut po przelaniu jakby byla jeszcze wieksza i stoji jak slup i nie chce opasc co utrudnialo skosztowanie tego ciemnego stouta. Moze nie jest przezroczyste ale wystarczajaco ciemne. Troche tez zbyt slodkie.
