chocolate, black, off white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, oily feel, lively, light watery finish. Swaroga (2224) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 11, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 15cl sample. Black/brown with medium, tanned head.
NOSE : fresh coffee, orange zest; black chocolate, nuts, lactic aromas.
SIP : medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth. The beer is moderately sweet with strong flavor of burned malts. It gets dry and bitter. both hops and burned malts mix into a bitter finish. Well hopped, the beer develops metallic and zest like aftertaste together with coffee like dry feeling.
OVERALL : Fruity and fresh for a stout, it is easy to drink. I would love to try it on tap. italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
On Tap at Alewife for my anniversary dinner with the wife. Deep dark chocolate pour. Aroma is full of wet coffee grounds and belgian yeast. A dry stout with a surprising amount of belgian yeast. Really clean. Not overpowering. In fact, mellow flavors overall, but delicious. HenrikSoegaard (14620) - Randers, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2012

Draft at alewife. Pours a dark brownish black with thin lacing. Aroma is wood and earth. Mouthfeel is dry but full with notes of wood, dirt, earth, roast, and bitter chocolate. Great, unique stout.

Poured a very dark brown, almost black. Almost no head. Aroma is quite sweet with roasted malts and some milk chocolate. Some cherries as well. The taste is quite burnt yet a tiny bit watery. Some coffee as well. Aftertaste is slightly astringent with more burnt flavors. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 21, 2012
Clear dark ruby brown with a good ring head and splotchy lace. Considering the low abv, this is an exceptional brew - lots of roasted caramel/coffee for openers, with a clean, bitter toasted-malt finish, which is particularly satisfying. Refreshing to enjoy a stout that doesn’t follow the current formula: malt moving to bitter chocolate and/or coffee to finish. BeerLuvver (114) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle from Beautiful Beers. Pours ruby black with initial good head but goes too quickly. Nice lacing. Scent of strong roasted malts and slight fruitiness. Good dark roasted malt flavour with a hint of sourness and a good bitter finish. An excellent stout. Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Faint roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Dark brown with hidden suspension. Couldn’t get a head on pour. Flavor is very bitter, and not typical stout bitterness at that. Consistency is way too thin; it doesn’t outweigh most lagers. Nice to see a new brewer work out of the Belgian comfort zone, but this is not my cup of stout. dutchtuga (146) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2012
Too much like Guinness. Too watery for my taste. Very few hints of chocolate or coffee and not too much of an aroma. Not too bad, but a very regular beer.
