On draft at Sharp Edge, Creekhouse location in Pittsburgh. Poured black with a touch of amber and a thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts. Taste is of smooth roasted chocolate malt, touches of dark fruit sweetness. Very mild hops in the finish. Good body. Alcohol hidden quite well.

Well, quite impressed with this one. Aroma instantly a winner, really smells like a Belgian inn/pub. Very nuanced and subtle, and the balance, caramel smoothness, with backend bitterness quite impressed me. Very good.

Pours a deep cola/amber with a light tan head of tightly packed bubbles. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of pepper and cheese. Tastes of chocolate and berries with a coffee hops finish. Clean. Love it.

Bottle. Pours a reddisn brown color with a tall tan head. Malty aroma with chocolate and a slightly burnt nose. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, malts, and some pine. Porter-like in body. Very enjoyable.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear, ruby-tinged brown with a big, fluffy, lacy orange/tan head. Sweet malty fig and licorice aroma. Creamy, medium-tending-to-full body, light carbonation. Prunes, tea, a bit of chocolate. Light notes of pine and espresso on a predominantly wood-dry finish. I thought I understood the Belgian stouts. This one is a bit out of the mainstream, even for an out-of-the-mainstream style. Im kinda torn on beers like this. Should I rate to the style, or to beery goodness?

BelgiskOlklub (1072) - Viby J, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2008
Brown beer with an average size creamy off-white head. Fair lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, leather, smoke and tobacco. Lightly hoppy. It has a medium body and a creamy texture.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2008
A dark brown/red beer with a big creamy head, witch stays for a longer time. The aroma is spicy, a little choclate and a light coffy taste. Also a smooth flavour and mild fruity notes (raisons ?). A really enjoyable stout for a rainy day.

Really deep red with a nice, full beige head and substantial lacing. Raspberry and cherry notes against a wheaty, floral background. Lots more fruit on the tongue, with a full, expressive mild chocolate background. Just a hint of sour and a striking bitter finish. Reminds me of cherry cordials.
