Very good beige head over deep-brown beer with orange lining. Roasted bread, pure Maillard (=breadcrust), meatroast, Pumpernickel. Drier, ashier flavour, virtually no sweetness, and more really bready flavours retronasal. Medium to well-bodied, dry, but gristslickness. Decent, if not great dry stout. In my book, Dupont fares better on light beers. Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle at The Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgie, 18.03.11 Pours black with a light beige head. This is roasty in the mouth but with an undercurrent of tangy sourness. A very pleasant stout better for not being too sweet or too dry. Its a challenging number which is very reasonable. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4 thewolf (12949) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2011

Deep brown, bordering on black with a fine, staying, frothy, beige head. Aroma is mild smokey, some dark chocolate, light esters, mild coffee. Mild carbonation, fairly light and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour is mild coffee roasted, some nuttiness, mild smoke. Fair grainy dry finish. Okay.

smell: roasted malts, coffee, bit bitter, sweet
taste: start is watery cold coffee, some smokeyness/roastyness, bit sour to the tongue, irony, dry / grassy end
Near black with faint red highlights, big and steady off-white head. Roasted aroma with a bit of licorice and some fruit and spice that could easily come from Dupont yeast. Dry and hard roasted flavour again with fruit and spicy notes. Hard roasted charcoal finish

Bottle. Pours black with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is yeast, light spices, toasted caramel, light roast and light coffee. The flavour is a bit tart, light spicy and has notes of roasted malt, yeast and quite a bitterness. Quite bitter finish. Belgian stouts are weird. This is no exception.

330 ml bottle in Germany. Pours black with massive beige head. Aroma is mainly roasted malts and coffee. Taste is a bit sweet but also dry and a little thin. Palate is mellow which I like. It makes a nice stout. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours black with a small stable greyish head on top. Flavor and nose combines sweet and mild roast, chocolate, vague ashes, fruit and grain. Medium bodied. Dry end with hints of ashes and cold coffee. Pretty decent. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2011
On tap. Pours a dark brown - close to black - with a warm orangey red hue and a small, creamy beige head. The nose is mainly fruity not particularly roasty. Medium-bodied, some notes of dark fruit, a little funk and quite some yeast. Has a lightly bitter finish. Not much of a Stout really but very Belgian and very Dupont! 040311 yespr (48968) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2011
