Bottle from trade with Boutip. Thanks Phil! Pours a rich dark brown color with a monster tan head that last forever. Aroma is of sweet malts and fresh bread dough then you get a wiff of the fermented fruit. Taste is of malt and spices. Finishes with a bit of a dry hop flavor. Nice complex brew.

Courtesy Knightly Spirits. Pours dark chocolate with a huge 2-inch brown head with staying power. Absorbing, foamy lace. Strong dark fruit, caramel, and oak on the nose. Mmmm...toasty malts in the mouth with more fired oak, subtle coffee and Fantome-esque funk, slight acidic finish. High carbonation and full bodied. The rounded mouthfeel is balanced and satisfying. Great beer. I like these sour stouts like Jolly Pumpkins Madrugada Obscura. Nice work.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Dark brown body, huge effervescent tan head. Sugary dark fruit aromas, some roast, like sweetened coffee. Slick and somewhat syrupy body, but cut by high carbonation. Flavors of sweet coffee, alcohol, some chocolate, salt, licorice. Late bitterness. All a bit messy due to high carbonation. Syrupy when left to warm and off-gas.

The aroma was very interesting, smelled toffee, honey and a hint of coriander (or something like it). The appearance was frothy and creamy with a light brown head. The lacing was very good and the head was mostly diminishing. The body was cloudy and the hue was Black. The initial flavor was sweet and the finish was sweet and bitter and long. The body was medium, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was soft.

eManu (544) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2010
Pours a very dark brown color with a very thick and dense dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, dark fruits and spices. Flavors of roasted malts, black chocolate coffee, liquorice, nuts, a hint of dark berries, caramels, and some spices. Good carbonation, very bitter dry, with a cream end in mouth. Very powerfull taste, a havy punch, not so easy to drink, quite thick, full body. Great complexity and great ballance of flavors. Really wonderfull stout.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Spicy aroma, clove and black pepper, chocolate, toffee, and a little caramel, mixed berries. Very dark brown, tan head. Flavor matches the aroma, evenly balanced. Medium-full bodied, but with a lively carbonation. There arent a lot of Belgian stouts out there - maybe there should be more because this is pretty damn tasty.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2007
dark color very volcanic, spewing tan head. nice aroma of chocolate, malt, fruit. The rich malted (chocolate, nutty) components do not come through complely in the flavor, nevertheless, this brew is not lacking in complexity sporting a huge range of notes from toasty chocolate to slightly sour fruits. a wonderful wintertime beverage.

Moolesen (532) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.

Lele (531) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2017
Imperial stout dai chiarissimi e sentori di cacao, cioccolato, caff e liquosori. Leggermente acida e pi scorrevole di quanto si pensi. Molto bella allaspetto, non particolarmente intensa per al naso.

I wasnt very careful with pouring the beer and the head filled majority of the glass. Very rich thick flavor and mouthfeel with a rather salty flavor. A rather dry stout with definite coffee flavors mainly in the finish. A good beer, but not something I will go back to.
