stijnemans90 (173) - - FEB 4, 2017
Lokaal bier uit spa. Combinatie tussen stout en dubbel. Zoet maar moutig, tonen van chocolade, makkelijke doordrinker. Lekker biertje.

chimayx (50) - FRANCE - JAN 18, 2017
Elle porte bien son nom, puisque elle est trs brune, presque noire, pas autant quune stout, mais pas loin, la lumire arrivant percer tout de mme un peu. Les odeurs sont marques et intressantes: fortement marqus par la prsence de liqueur, de fruits macrs dans lalcool. On trouve donc dune part une prsence importante de liqueur, dautre part beaucoup de fruits sombres et macrs, comme de la figue, cerise, sureau. Armes la encore puissants de liqueur, qui est en fond de dgustation en permanence. Fruits noirs macrs, figues, mures, prunes lalcool, notes de noix, rglisse. Cot malt on trouve pas mal de caramel, mais qui napporte pas de sirupeux ou de sucre, et des notes torrfies voir grilles. Grosse prsence de lalcool tout le long, mais dun alcool fin, qui ne rend pas la bouche trop chaude. Corps relativement dense, lgre acidit, peu sucre, carbonatation moyenne. Une brune qui sloigne des standards!

Alusmamuts (1700) - LATVIA - NOV 8, 2016
Dark brown with rich beige creamy head. Fruity aroma. Not bad taste, but probably this one sample is bit defective - something of old butter notes, while otherwise roasted grain and quite strong bitterness.
