When you get to that time of day when that cup of hot coffee is no longer the answer, and you need something with a little extra kick, plait your bear, stick on your eye patch and grab a Black Perle. This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand full’s of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.

From cask at In de Wildeman. Clear, very dark brown to black with a thin, creamy, brown head. Roasty-malty aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and some caramel. Sweetish, roasty-malty taste of coffee, dark chocolate and caramel, followed by a short, roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. Nice!

5/XII/15 - on tap @ Billies Bier Kafétaria (Antwerpen) - BB: n/a (2015-1685) Thanks to my wife for sharing the beer!

Clear dark brown beer, almost black, creamy irregular beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very roasted, cocoa powder, coffee, vanilla, caramel, bit sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very roasted start, cocoa powder, caramel, malty, grains, bit sourish. Aftertaste: coffee, pretty roasted, bitter touch, "green" impression, spicy, some cinnamon, bitter, hoppy, come charcoal, green banana, little sweet in the finish. Amazing for a low alcohol beer!

ianwelby (1042) - SCOTLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Black beer with a thin, creamy head. Smell is coffee and strong, bitter chocolate. Flavour is a touch more easy-going than I expected. Malt, coffee, chocolate and a proper mily ky quality to match the name. Not the heartiest, richest stout you’ll have (or even milk stout) but it’s tasty, the flavours linger and the balance is great.
