Travlr (22062) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Chewy, chocolatey, bitter, thick stout in the American style. Reminds me of Bell’s Expedition Stout. Should age very well.

fiulijn (19644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
Dark color; huge creamy head, beige. Strong liquorice aroma. Good Strong Ale, with some more roasted malt dryness than usual. Roasted nuts; a lot of liquorice. Strong, dry ending bitterness. Very good as Foreign Stout, below standards for De Dolle.

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dried fruit and yeasty. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish. A good mix between a stout and a Belgian strong ale. A bit too sweet though. 270511

ZBF 2008 Voluminser Malzgeruch, etwas alkoholisch, was sofort von Rstmalz berdeckt wird. Rstiger Malzantrunk, eine leichte Se mildert die hintergrndige Bitterkeit. Erkennbar hopfig, angenehm harmonisch, die Bitterkeit wird zum trockenen Abgang hin strker. Test vom 11.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,11,10,12,-,11 - 11,21

harrisoni (17477) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2005
330ml bottle from the brewery. Dark brown/black with lasting thin dark tan head. This is an absolutely intense stout. Tar, liquorice and bitter dark chocolate on the aromas. God, this is intense. Almost primeval. Mouthfeel has the sour notes of a stout with some carbonation. Finish is like swallowing 200g of dark chocollate in one go. Definitely pleasant but it does feel as though you have been mugged by a lump of bitter chocolate wrapped around a prune brick. One hell of a beer though.

yngwie (16613) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a big, foamy beige head, too big actually, and a black body. Chocolate, roasted malt, sugar, berries and a touch of yeast in the aroma. Rather dry, effervescent, slightly warming in the mouth, with flavors of chocolate, dark sugar and some burnt malt. Even though theres this warming sensation, the flavors of alcohol is well hidden. A nice Belgian stout. (080118)
