Draught: Aroma of malts and some chocolate. Poured ruby/dark red in color with a dense, foamy, rocky, medium-brown head that lasted throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes malty with notes of smoke, chocolate, roasting, and raisins. Medium body. Chalky texture. Soft carbonation. Dry, roasty finish.

Pours a very dark ruby that has some head that does not stay around for too long. Nose is strong with sweetness and some firm caramel. I get a sense that there is a coffee tone that is very far in the background that is just barely peeking through. Flavor is beautiful. Outstandingly unique. Sweet for a bit, and then the stout characteristics kick in. Slight coffee accents follow the thick sweet and then it ends with a bubbly sensation on your tongue. Almost seems to be a touch of port to it. Feel is extremely well balanced. Slight bubble. Drinkability. This is not one to really drink hard and fast. Definitely a sipper...but sippable for your entire night and then some. Beyond worth trying. If you have the opportunity, trying this is imperative.

Bottle, 33cl. Nice red/brown color with a light reddish/lightbrown foamy head. Arome is chocolate with roasty notes. Rich flavor with tastes of malt, fruites, little smoke and chocolate. The mouthfeel is rich with small alcohol. Overall a nice beer with true belgian characteristics.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2007
Burgundy murk with tan collar. Nose of wax, leather, bonfire, chocolate. Smoky, chocolate-accented stout packed with charred malt bitterness. Toffee and licorice jostling in the background. Some offputting fizziness, but almost as good as its name.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - AUG 21, 2007
poured a clear reddish black with a slight fading tan head with light cream lacing. Nose of raisins, brown sugar, chocolate, with a medium body and unique palate. Like most belgians, this beer is predominantly focused on the blend between malt and yeast; hops come through only slightly in the finish. Unlike most belgians, this one has strong chocolate/roasted malt tones on the tongue, making for an interesting blend of dubbel/stout characteristics. Alcohol is warming but not present in the flavor. Quite a small delight.

Purchased @ Southbay Drugs and Liquor. I had bought this months ago but just not noticed it sitting in my fridge the other day and couldnt believe i had forgotten about this bottle. It blended in so well with my steak sauce, soy sauce, and bbq sauce bottles it was nearly camouflaged. The aroma is a robust and rich scent of dark roasty malt and sweet dark Belgian chocolate that is very appetizing to the nose. Appearance is quite easy to describe because it is so simple. Pitch black with a layer of cream colored foam is all i really have to say to describe this stout. Come to think of it this has to be my first Belgian stout that i have tasted because i dont ever see any. This has an amazing creamy and rich flavor of dark burnt malt, vanilla bean and a unique strain of yeast that really paired well with the recipe. Very nice beer that is in a class of its own.
