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.

Endlich mal ein belgisches, das zu überzeugen weiß. Leicht hopfig mit Karamellnoten und dazu mild im Abschluss. Eine positive Überraschung.

McTapps (6957) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle from Pivnizub - thank you a lot! The beer pours out in a dark brown colour with creamy low head and medium to smooth body. Nice aroma of malt and straw. Taste of caramel, malt, ripe hops, dark bread, nuts and honey. Grassy hints. Smooth and easy drinkable with some light and fresh finish. Enjoyed it.

leaparsons (10695) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Very dark red and brown with an off white foam. Aromas are cola with dark treacle and funky, fruity yeast. Earthy with floral, herbal notes and red wine. Flavours are fruity berries with marzipan and cola. Hints of banana with raisins and lemon. Woody with molasses and a spicy finish. Good.

Nice Belgian beer. Has the typical sweetness, but with a nice caramelised bitter edge.

derBreslauer (142) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Almost black body, mahogany/cherry color against light. Nice beige head. Also nice malty aroma, with caramel and herbal dominant notes. Dry. Noticeable roasted malt and cognac aroma in background. Taste is good, starts with swetness but evolving to dry and bitter finish. Cognac, caramel and herbal notes are dominant. Quite high carbonation. [Bottle]

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 08/11/2014. Blackish, very dark mahogany brown, little beige head. Smell is sweet, cocoa and chocolate milk powder, herbs and roots, light roast, chicory coffee, light liquorish,… Taste is bitter herbs, liquorish, leaves, sweet chicory coffee, cocoa and chocolate milk, light roots, hazelnuts, touch dark fruits, light caramel, light bark, sweet,… Higher carbonation. Really surprised, way nicer and better than I expected. Way better than their stout. Excellent brew. A nice regular stout made be an ordinary Belgian brewery? Well I be damned.

mgajdaczewa (2249) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Zaskoczyła mnie tak słaba ocenia tego piwa. Spróbujcie jeszcze raz. Jest palony słód, jest karmel, są śliwki, suszone owoce, dym i popiół... Wszystko jest. Chaos, ale jakże przyjemny! Jedyną wadą (!?) tego piwa może być to, że jest absolutnie nieokiełznane.

Unique. Pours very dark brown, big seafoam head. Aroma applejuicey. Palate interesting - chalky almost in a good way. Flavor is pretty light - maybe subtle chocolate. Overall pretty nice.
