COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Objectively … the best stout in the world! Savour it with your dessert - with an ice cream and spéculoos, for example - and close your eyes: it’s 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."

Taste bay leaf, light liquorice, good herby, hint of toast, light roasted barley malts, some hay roast, bitters and toasted/loght roasted herbs. Aftertaste is good bitter with toasted malts, spices, Low carbo, sof spicy mouthfeel, good medium body and a light creamy texture. Good beer, fine.

Silvan7 (1242) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 18, 2017
Bottle @ home. Marrone scuro, quasi nero, velato, schiuma beige, fine e persistente. Aroma piacevolmente complesso, intenso. Tostatura, caramello, lievito belga, zucchero di canna, cioccolato e frutta secca (mandorle). Gusto abboccato, tostato, cacao amaro e caffè, erbaceo da luppolo, liquirizia in abbondanza nel retrolfattivo. Calda, abbastanza carbonata, rotonda, corposa, di buona carbonatazione. Armonica ed equilibrata.

SylvainCFC (225) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2017
Robe noire avec légers reflets rouges. Col de mousse court à moyen, beige, moyennement aérée. Tenue assez bonne. Nez sur le malt torréfié, toast grillé, petit fumé. Attaque fort carbonatée, torréfié, café. Suivent ensuite des saveurs plus caractéristiques d’une brune : fruits mûrs, confits, caramel, liquoreux. Le houblon amérisant, herbeux perce légèrement en troisième vague. Texture moyennement aqueuse, carbonatation assez forte. Une bière noire qui s’appuie sur une brune pour donner une belge complexe.

Beertobealive (576) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - FEB 17, 2017
75cl bottle from la caisse de Bieres. Pours a quick fainting brown head, with strong caramel and fat candy butter aromas. Dark black colored body. In mouth, less sweetness and middle class malts.tentative classy Belgian dubbel but lacks roundness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (5836) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2016
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt på RBHD-treff hos Odd Gunnar nov-16: brunsvart med fint skum som varer. Mild aroma men pregnant smak med mørke bær, sjokolade, mørk karamell og litt lakris. Elegant bitterhet i den lange, halvtørre og myke ettersmaken.
