Bottle. Dark lighting, but from what I could tell pours black with a thin light brown head. Lots of roasted malt and tobacco on the nose, dry mouthfeel with notes of roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, and some sourness. Light hop character to help round it out. Overall, felt it was a bit watery and not quite what I look for in a stout, but still enjoyable.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07/2013
Aroma has hay, toffee, some oat and slight sour notes. Flavour is sourish with some oat. Finishes tart with some lemony and earthy notes. A stout in Belgian way even more sour than I expected.

Lukaduke (3196) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a deep brown color with a big frothy sticky eggshell head that covers the glass and stays... The nose is a way subtle, just faint roasted grain and a ever so light touch of metallic chocolate. On the palate it delivers with nice carbonation to keep the mouthfeel pretty light but full bodied. Nice roasted chocolate malts and a smidgen of smoked grain. Clean finish and a easy drinking everyday Belgian style stout.

Maybe the glass was not well washed, because the first impression in nose was to detergent. Alongside, the fresh hop was very present, but I expect more from a stout. This one has a watery texture and a short development with a chocolate finishing very light. Disappointing.
