(Draught at Little Delirium Café, Brussels, 26 Oct 2013) Black colour with creamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, black rye bread and a dry finish with a generous roasty bitterness. Almost full body, quite dry. Well made and tasty stout.

Black colour with a beige head. Coffee, roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium body and a dry texture. Low carbonation. Rich coffee and roasted malt flavour. Not very fit together with food, but nice in the evening with a good book.

Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2012
Bottle: Dark brown to black pour, a black body with a nice medium tan to light brown head which changes slowly into a closed and vast lacing. Looks good! The aromas are almost imperial stout like: liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate, rum, tar and coffee roast The flavour is coffee, dark roast and burned rubber at first, than it changes minimally into a fine mix of dark chocolate, coffee/espresso, roasted/burned barleys malts, roasted/burned wood, dark chocolate drenched hops/herbs. There’s an overall good growing bitterness in this beer which results in a long bitter roasted almost burned aftertaste with a touch of dryness. Low carbo, full body, watery to a light creamy mouthfeel and a light watery texture. Really good beer; lot of roast, bitterness and a fine body.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a hazy brownish-red color with a tan head. The aroma is brown sugar, toffee and some dark fruit. The flavor is slightly more complex. I get some iced tea notes, as well as some brown sugar, Belgian yeast, cherries and some earthy and piney hops notes. There is very little bitterness from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DutchDrebus (6034) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle @ Borefts ’13 thx to Illuvatarmilan (if I spelled that correctly). Pitch black coloured beer with a full sized, dark brown head (which looks lovely). Smells some iron, roasty and coffee. Tastes coffee, again iron, liquorice, slightly salty and roasty. I’m not a fan of liquorice taste in beer, but this beer does it quite nicely. Medium to full body and soft carbo.
