Brewed since the beginning of last century, when the near-complete staff of the brewery went to see the circus of Buffalo Bill, leaving the boiling brewing kettle to the care of the youngest employee. This boy let the beer roast and caramelise on the bottom of the kettle, but after trying, everybody actually liked the "spoiled" beer, which became the brewery’s staple diet. This Belgian version is a lot weaker than the stout exported to the USA.

Drucken på flaska. Mörk nötbrun färg med smutsbrunt skum. Lite syrlig doft av hallonsaft och svarta vinbär. Ganska lätt kropp. Smak av söt, brun, rostad malt och lingonsylt.

Bottle. Dark ruby clear colour with beige head. Aroma dark fruits, dried plums, caramel, bit roasted/chocolate tones. Taste dark fruits, bit sweet, roasted finish. A bit empty body, bit watery. Overall not bad.

On bottle from Drankenzentrale du Hopduvel, Gent. Dark brown color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; roasted, malty, dried fruits, light hops and some toffee in the finish . Medium body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness- good balancing bitterness . Very Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (9552) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 10, 2015
Tap at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Poured a clear dark brown with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is rich sweet malt, light chocolate, light smoky notes. The flavour is moderate sweet with a slightly light, roasty, burnt treacle, yeast, ight hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Fairly drinkable but a little light and lacking flavours that I like!

Alusmamuts (2016) - LATVIA - MAY 5, 2015
Almost black with rich beige head. Mild sour winey taste with slight dry malt on the background. Some bitterness, sour wine aftertaste. Easy drinkable.

From a 0,33 cl bottle. Colour is dark brown with a creamy head. Taste is sweet, caramel, dark fruit. Nice easy to drink beer. Misses a bit excitement.

tricksta_p (4763) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Aroma of dark malt, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, hint of coffee, raisins. Flavour is sweet with a candy sweet finish. Okay, but too sweet for my taste.
