"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 (1794) - 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.

AaronTDubs (377) - - JUL 19, 2016
Dark brown color. Has a bright aroma of rum, dried fruits, and some roasted notes. No hop aroma. Lighter body with a bright stout. High attenuation (it is Belgian after all), making this a very easy to drink stout. Notes of light chocolate, rum, roasted malts, touch of lighter roasted coffee, dried fruits, herbs, and a noticable alcohol. Good stuff. A nice change from the heavy chocolate milk bombs that are seeming to take over the high gravity stout world.
