Oh man, this was incredable. I never even thought of the possibility of a belgian stout. Only when I opened the mail i realized. Great looking bottle, easy open-built-in top. Nice thick stout. Great belgian yeast tastes with smokey character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft 0.25l at Cafe Hesp Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 01.03.2017. Pour it dark color with medium white head. Aroma light roasted malt, some chocolate. Taste lots of roasted malt with caramel, sweet sugary finish, pinch of bitter dark chocolate in the middle, but really thin feel with light body, lively, astringent finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 Bottle consumed at Het Waterhuis Aan de Bierkant. All of the usual suspects present for consumption. Dark black in color with a healthy tan head. Aroma is mild but features some cocoa, dark fruit, and a malty and bready characteristic. Taste is a pleasant mix of chocolate, malty cereal, and a slight coffee finish. Feels very much like a standard stout which is surprising given it?s a Belgian effort. A little bit thinner than I expected but it?s definitely smooth. Nothing unique but it?s drinkable.

Flesje gedeeld met TomHendriksen (tht juni 2015). Diep donkerbruin bier met depot. Weinig aroma, misschien door de ouderdom. Ook de smaak is vlak, iets houtig en hoppig. De nasmaak is licht bitter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle, BBE 23.1.18. Very dark brown, cola-coloured stout with a small beige head. Not much aromas straight off, too cold possibly, lots of licorice once it warms up. Flavour of malts, licorice, a little spicy with a crisp yet soft palate. Admittedly, I drank most of it before I got to the rating. Not even my favourite flavor profile, yet very nice.
