COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

@ Tasting in Klippan 3/10-14. Bottle from Belgoklubben. Malty and caramely with light yeasty and roasted notes, dried fruits and chocolate, sweet, medium body with a watery to oily texture. The finish is dry with roasted notes.

0.33L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aromas of cherry, burnt tire, yeast, chocolate, minerals. Mild sweetness at beginning, hints of chocolate in the middle, finishing with a mild, roasted malt character. Really muted flavor profile. Medium-light body with a thin yet creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Overall, although the beer has a nice flavor profile, the rest is pretty mediocre.

Een bier dat eigenlijk best nog goed meevalt. Ik vond het een leuke verrassing.

La stout est plus riche de ses saveurs rôties, mais cette ale convainc par sa douceur et sa délicatesse. Je peux comprendre qu'il l'aie gardée alors qu'elle avait eu chaud. Bien fraîche, elle désaltère puis se réveille si on lui en laisse le temps!

brnandersen (3902) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Sample from tap, CBF 2014. Dark brown colour with a medium sized lightly tanned head. Lightly roasted aroma with sweet fruits - some berries, caramel malts and light coffee. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes dry and fruity with lightly roasted malts and honey-notes. Very easygoing, but rather subtle.

Bottle, thanks SirLimpsalot. Dark brown with a large head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, toffee and some berries. The body was light. Drinkable but nothing special.

@Stordirren: ganska enkel och typisk belgisk doft. Smaken är likaså med lite bränd kola, snäll och lätt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

R2k2 (450) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
A very dark, hard-to-see-trough beer with a slightly brown layer of foam. It has the aroma of forrest fruits like strawberry’s and raspberry’s. It tastes really bitter, but the hint of the fruits are still present. It leaves a dry palate and a bitter aftertaste. Een erg donker, ondoorzichtig bier met een lichtbruine kraag. In het aroma zijn bosvruchten en aardbeien herkenbaar. De smaak is volledig bitter, maar op de achtergrond is het zoetige nog aanwezig. Droge afdronk en een bittere nasmaak.
