DrnkMcDermott (3058) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
33 cl bottle, $1.90 at Binnys, April 2011. Another lower-alcohol beer I should have finished long ago. Yet when opened, theres a definite waft of alcohol in the air. Poured into a Nonick glass, its black with brown highlights, a slightly foamy stout head. Smell up close has slightly roasty stout grain. Taste has some coffee stout roast up front. Dry mouthfeel which still has nice hop bitterness. At this stage, it seems like more of a sharp German bitterness than English. And I like it just fine. Some dregs at the bottom. A secondary ferment? Maybe thats why this one has held up very well. I can slightly credit my beer cellar which stays at a nice 50F when I lean the door in front of it.

Zilverenmaan (130) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2017
Aroma of burnt malts not overpowering. Taste of burnt malts a bit faint as well but well balanced with a fine, complex and lingering bitterness in the finish with no taste of alcohol getting in the way. Mouthfeel thin. Actually very enjoyable if you take your time to appreciate it.

Flat out boring. Some dry maltiness, moderate carbonation. Some hoppyness, but lacking complexity and flavour.

Hamirubi (578) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2017 33cl bottle at home (17 III 2017), shared with the Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. Finally got the chance to savour this beer at a quiet pace. A good dark stout with beige to even white, small collar on top. Good looking. A coffee and minth nose accentuate the typical stout flavours. There is some "speculoos" in there as well, making this brew quite appealing. The hoppy notes are rather subtle, yet present for sure. Now for the taste. The dryness really makes up for a pleasant mouthfeel. A great sensation for a pretty light and modest stout beer, with fizzy carbonation and a lovely, keen coffee dash. The ending is quite strong, for this light 4.5% ABV brew. Great modest dry stout, with grand hoppy sensations.

Dguste la bouteille au Vaudre 1 Lige. Aspect : noir profond avec peu de mousse. Nez peu affirm vers le caf, le chocolat et un peu plus tard, les fruits noirs. Bouche vachement sur le fum, la tourbe mme ! Le liquide est facile boire, porte sur le caf bien sr. Il montre une carbonatation moyenne, une amertume moyenne et une dgustation moyenne +
