Cloudy brown/blackish pour, small brown head. Aroma of chocolate malt and alcohol. Chocolate maltedness dominates the flavor, with some coffee notes. Light alchohol burn, finishes hoppy and leaves a chalky feel on my tongue. Interesting stout.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Bottle with a marked as best before date of 2011 and 8.2% ABV. Pours with a large, creamy, khaki over a murky brown body, that is more the hue of a barely wine than a stout. Full retention. Aroma of chocolate, concorde grape, fig, dark fruits, more chocolate, metal and umami. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, yeast, light smoke, currants, raisins, and dark fruits. Medium bubbles and a water like mouthfeel. Good Belgian Stout. Not a mild stout as my label suggested.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle, 25 cl. Its a very dark, hazy beer, with a beige head lacing nicely. It smells sweet, a sort of candy sugar and caramel - light chocolate. The taste is light coffe, caramel, light chocolate, with a bityter end dry afterstaste and a long finish. After a while you taste also a bit dark fruit. This goes straight to a stout, but has it shortcomings to be a good stout. Overall a tasty beer, not really my favourite style, but a good one, not more.

11.2 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy, deep brown with a ring of khaki lace. Flavor of sweet, dark fruits: plum, raisin, and cherry. Very similar to a dubbel style beer.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle. The beer smells nice, malty and a little bit like a chocolate, light bitter and very soft sour. The head is medium large, beige and creamy-foamy with a long duration. The body is dark red. The taste is malty, some bitter chocolate, reminds me of a good Porter or Stout. The finish is very long. It has not much carbonation, a creamy body which gets dry later on. It is medium strong with a relatively astringent finish. A very tasty beer!

nickd717 (4290) - Sofia, BULGARIA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle at Church Key in SF. Dark brown in color with a beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and dark fruits. Flavor of roasted malt, dark fruit, and some oxidative notes. Decent but not great. Palate somewhat light for a stout.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 30, 2009
The pour is dark brown with plenty of ruby highlights. The head is off-white in color with spotty lacing. The aroma is chocolate, toffee, raisin and thin hops. Really pleasant aroma. The flavor is lightly smoky, chocolate and some tart, slightly sour fruit. The mouthfeel is thin to medium in body. A nice and definitely different take on the style.

doublebock (558) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Dark amber color with thick with foam. Strong malty, chocolate and bready nose. Sweet and chewy, less like a stout than a stong belgian ale. Fruity yet toasty with a dry finish.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2009
A couple of marked down singles enjoyed on an early Sunday evening. Pours a dark maroon with a thick brown head and very nice lacing. Smells of plums, smoke and chocolate. Rich and sweet with a woody almost smoked aftertaste. Finishes creamy and easy. Mixed chocolate candies with some brown sugar and black licorice thrown in. Rye bread and a splash of coffee. Very good and very drinkable Belgian "stout" so they say.
