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."

Draft. A fine, fine stout indeed: velvety foam, terrific smooth body and a delicate oat-ish character. One of my favorite stouts, good to drink at all times, even non-fans of the genre are impressed.

Svart �l med ett st�rre brunt skum. Doften �r s�t med choklad och rostad malt. Smaken �r bittrare med cacao och bitter m�rk choklad. �ven en l�ttare syrlighet i eftersmaken.

Syfher (455) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Certainly not the best stout in the world, but one of the good ones in Belgium for sure ! The colour is dark-brown with a nice creamy-coffee fuzzy head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate, and the taste is surely stouty, but this the chocolate that overhelmed us for once, not the coffee. Pleasant aftertaste.

Very dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma: coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, tobacco and caramel. Fairly dry.

Silvan7 (1251) - 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 (273) - 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.

Svart med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter fløte, kakaopulver og svisker. Fyldig. Salt lakris, kaffe, tørket frukt og noe vanilje. Middels lang.

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

Lore (2775) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2017
dark brown colour, large dense beige head; aroma of roasted and ash notes, some coffee and unripe fruits; taste of dark chocolate, pear and syrupy notes, some coffee and yeast; good one

Noire, collet moyen Aromes café mais un peu faiblards Les notes chocolat et cafe s’expriment bien plus en bouche. c’est assez rond, bien long sur les notes torrefies, caramel

Sigmund (7656) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2016
Shared bottle at local tasting. ABV 7.6%. Black colour, beige head. Dusty and grainy aroma, a hint of vanilla and mild coffee, some liquorice. Fairly well balanced flavour, some chocolate and mild coffee.
