"Objectively the best stout in the world! Savour it with your dessert - with an ice cream and spculoos, for example - and close your eyes: its like entering a torrefaction workshop This beer is the favourite of the brewer, who has always adored stout. But I mean real Stout, not oversweet gassy liquids!. With an aim of finding a fairly marked coffee after-taste, we have chosen to use the most torrefied barley malt that can be found on the market - Black malt at 1400 EBC. As this malt is a bit acrid, we have corrected it by using another slightly caramelized malt (150 EBC), and some brown sugar. So that the hops can exist alongside these strong caramelized and torrefied malt flavours, we have mainly opted for the strong American hop, Tomahawk."

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt p RBHD-treff hos Odd Gunnar nov-16: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Mild aroma men pregnant smak med mrke br, sjokolade, mrk karamell og litt lakris. Elegant bitterhet i den lange, halvtrre og myke ettersmaken.

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2016
Very deep brown body with a tan and fully lasting head that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma of roasted malt and bakers yeast, with a generic fruity background, raisins and ash. Strong flavour of dark roasted malt, Belgian yeast and spices, and coffee, fruits and hints of solvent in the back. Moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. An ok brew, but both the bakers yeast in the aroma and the unclean alcohol notes make this one a bit too close to a homebrew.

33cl-fles van bij Tabac&Co - Palais des bires te Dottenijs (in Famiflora) U: zwart met kleine bruine schuimkraag die snel helemaal weg ebt G: geroosterde mout, pure chocolade, metallisch, beetje alcohol en een lichte hint van koffie S: karamel- en chocoladezoet, jammer genoeg ook wat metallisch. Geroosterde mout in de afdronk. M: jammer genoeg niet sticky en te veel carbonatie naar mijn smaak voor een stout
