"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."

poech73 (531) - Braine-Le-Comte, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2018
From Carr** Wavre: Stout à la belge >> Plus une bière de désert que de dégustation. Comme souvent chez Cazaeu, la bière offre une dégustation fort équilibrée goûtue à l'amertume subtilement astringente sur la fin. Cependant, on reste dans un produit standard où les arômes torréfiés passe en arrière plan de son profil sirupeux. C'est plein de sucrosité cacaoté et épicé à la réglisse avec de la levure. Appréciable mais son caractère caramel au chocolat a du mal à surprendre tellement il est attendu. Trop convenue dans la ligne la qualité des bières belges.

rayaron (2185) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - FEB 17, 2018
Bottle shared at a tasting at troubles’s place. Cloudy brown with beige head. Sweetish aroma with notes of alcohol, yeasts, coffee, some chocolate and caramel. Sweet flavor, quite alcoholic with notes of coffee, hoppy bitterness, yeasts and some fruitiness. Medium to full-bodied.

AssKicker (774) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - FEB 6, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 Couleur bien sombre, plutôt sur le marron bien foncé. Grosse mousse beige qui tient pas mal. Nez... hum... ça paraît oxydé. En bouche c'est assez chocolat, un peu caramel et pruneaux, avec une fin de bouche qui paraît un peu poussiéreuse. Pas mauvais, mais un peu zarbi.

Moolesen (641) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Black with a foamy light brown head. Coffee aroma and some roasted tones. High carbonated beer. Nice taste, though, plenty of coffee. Medium length.

simontomlinson (758) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2017
Frothy beige head stayed on a jet black still body. Dates, dark berries, demerara & spicy aroma. Medium bodied feeling airy in the mouth with a clean dry back. Taste is much as the aroma with dark bitter berries, malt, licorice, coffee & a slightly burnt smoky finish.

daje (4554) - NORWAY - NOV 5, 2017
Bottle, november 18th 2016. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of dark malt, caramel, cocoa. Taste is sweet and chunky with a mild acidic berry note, grain coffee. A bit messy in balance. Dusty and roasted sweet finish.

zacgillbanks (5765) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Black-brown with red highlights and a thick tan head. It has a liquorice and dried fruit flavour with plum notes and a spicy chocolate, liquorice and smooth, warming oak-vanilla-currant finish. Good.

The_Osprey (9999) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
November 2017 - 330ml bottle at home in Richmond as 'Tournay Noire', 7.6%. Very dark brown with a huge brown head that endures. Very Belgian in appearance. Aroma is wholemeal bread, syrup, some Oreos or bourbon biscuit, Twix. Body is foamy with tingly carbonation. Taste is ashy, candi sugar and booze, burnt fudge, caramelised almonds, little harsh varnish note towards the finish. Pretty sweet and boozy which I can find a little grating. More of a Belgian strong ale than a stout in character for me, despite the way it looks. Interesting to try. (6-5-5-3-13=3.2)
