Bottle at home bought from Beer Gonzo. Pours with a beige head, not a strong stout aroma, but good dry stout flavour and sweet on the palate. Not a bad stout.

Caiu muito bem com o chocolate e fechou perfeitamente a noite de degustação. Coloração negra opaca. Creme bastante denso e castanho. Aroma forte de chocolate. Sabor de café e de bom amargor. Carbonatação média.

Alengrin (5718) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Classic dry stout with a long historical heritage; thick, light beige, sticky, stable head, black colour with a wine-red hue only visible under bright light, clear. Strong aroma of coffee and bitter chocolate, leafy hops, iron, walnuts, peat, leather. Dry taste with subtle presence of dark fruits, smooth, bit oily mouthfeel, bit sourish carbonation, caramel malts in the middle, supple, mild but nevertheless clearly roasted bitterness in the finish (black coffee) which also shows some peppery hops.
