Thanks to Erwin for sharing! 75cl bottle @ RBBSG II. Pours a super dark brown with small loose brown head. Smell is coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and dark fruit. Active carbonation and medium body. Niall73 (2459) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
bb 08/07/14. Went for a fairly aggressive pour which resulted in a dense black/brown beer with a pale tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet choc, a bit of licorice, rum... Light to medium body, mild carbonation. A touch of burnt treacle, bitter coffee, and there's was sweeter choc earlier in the proceedings. Nice.

Clear dark brown beer, small irregular beige head, unstable, non adhesive. aroma: dried fruits, caramel, some chloride, bit medicinal, disinfectant. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of mocha, caramel, bit sweet, coffee, bit citric, very dark chocolate. Aftertaste: cocoa powder, caramel, dry, some coffee.
Bottle from Biérocratie, Paris.
Dark brown color, almost inexistent tan head. Smell is a good balance between sweet and bitter, like roasty mocha. Taste is rather "light", would be nice if a bit more full-bodied I think. Aromas of strong milk chocolate with notes of malty caramel, coffee, spices. Low carbonation. Long and nice sweet spicy/liquorice/cocoa flavor sticks in the mouth, without too much bitterness.
Pleasant and rather easy to drink stout. ruigo (3080) - PORTUGAL - AUG 19, 2013
Shared 750ml bottle from the brewery itself. It pours a dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Very smooth. Dry, sweet and long finish. A very pleasant stout without the heaviness of this kind of beers. Very good! Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. Opaque pitch black color, small to medium sized light brown head. Smell malts, slightly roasty, dark and overripe fruits. Taste malts, slightly roasty, dark and overripe fruits, average bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice.
