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.

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.

Very similar to the fruity, spicy quality of the blond, but with the touch of wood and toasted malt. Nice and malty, sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Thisis12ptfont (1154) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Burnt caramel malt and molasses with some possible dark fruit and cloves on the aroma. Appears a purple-ish black color with a thin foam. Deep caramel malt with a fruity twist. Alcohol and wood on the finish. Some chocolate and cocoa notes floating around. Overall, pretty solid. Not exactly what I was expecting and a tad watered down. Nevertheless Its a pretty well done brew. B+ rating.

330 cl bottle brought to me by my daughter after a recent trip to Belgium, and purchased at the Bottle Shop in Brugge. Pours a murky dark brown/black with a generous, creamy tan head with just amazing durability. There was still a thin layer of foam at the bottom of the glass 30 minutes later. Aroma is rich with chocolate, dark fruit, molasses, and roasted nuts. Smooth, rich and satisfying mouthfeel with a medium to full body and light carbonation. Flavors of caramel and a spicy bitterness leave a finish that is slightly tangy, softly bitter, and with a very mild lasting sweetness. This has a lot of subtlety to it, nothing is overwhelming, and I found it a very enjoyable stout, quite different than the American versions that I am more familiar with.

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.
