imdownthepub (14333) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
Bottled, 330ml at Trappistlokaal t klooster. Black with tan head. The heavyish carbonation fizz was the one downfall, otherwis fruity, quite light for a stout, but still roasty and a little sweet. Good find.

hawthorne00 (3851) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle, 11C. Pours very dark brown with some chunks. Tan head fades quickly to an incomplete coat. Smells of the sea, with liqueur port, licorice, stewed plums and bitter chocolate. Just oily body, quite noticeable alcohol. Has some dark fruit sweetness and medium roasted malt, with some sourness and quite a lot of brine. Theres some bitterness in the salty finish. For a beer of this weight the roasted character is light for a stout (not that it matters). The saltiest beer I can recall having. Good, unusual and dangerously drinkable.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle at Waterhuis @ Gent. Have seen this beer some times at shops, but for some reason never took one home with me... Now it was one of the few beers that was at the "menu" that got my interest more or less. Pitch black. Beige medium head that holds good. Burned/roasted fruity-sweet smell. Lightly sour smell. Sweet lightly bitter taste with some weird stuff comes up. Maybe its the salt? Some chocolate-coffee. To sweet, unbalanced, not bitter enough stout, misses some body. Not a bad beer at all, but I prefer some other stouts... Ok beer, not good stout for me.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Pours nearly black deep ruby with a good tan head with excellent retention. Sweet, black cherries, vanilla in the nose and body. Taste adds some milk chocolate, vanilla bean ice cream. Fairly light-bodied and sessionable. Excellent!

Travlr (23980) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Herman asked me 3 questions, and based on my answers he chose this beer for me at the Waterhuis in Gent - perfect choice! Black, thick tan head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla beans, scotch, licorice. Chocolate taste, light spice, dry and bitter finish. Very nice.

Hansen (8562) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2010
Dark brown colour. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet, malty, faint roasted/burnt. Perhaps salt? Creamy texture. Lively carbonation.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2010
Brownish black pour, small bubbly head. Weak aroma of coffee, malts and silt. Flavour is malty, salty, slight smoke and coffee. Very nice beer, but less stoutish than expected.
