0.33 bottle.
Black color with a small, coffee-colored head leaving some lacing. Aroma of caramel, butter, dough, and vanilla. Taste is made up of coffee, malts, and some dark cake - it is sweet yet very delicate for a stout, I would not even classify it as an Imperial Stout. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, very malty, and a tad too alcoholic. Overall the beer is mediocre and not particularly stout.

onceblind (8186) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Not super dark black, almost like a schwarzbier, with a light tan head that evaporates a little fast, leaving no head at all. Nice chocolate-ish aroma and a faint licorice and biscuity nose. Smooth and Belgian ish flavor with some dark malt, no smokiness or roast, some smooth chocolate undertones, a faint Belgian yeast fruitiness, and some plum.

Zilverenmaan (68) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2016
Aangenaam aroma: voornamelijk vanille. Smaak eveneens voornamelijk vanille, daarnaast beetje zoetig, beetje zurig, slechts een hint van geroosterde mout. Bitterre afdronk ontbreekt. Mondgevoel olie-achtig, weinig koolzuur. Al bij al geen kwaad bier maar weinig uitgesproken of complex van smaak.

0,33l fles bij wapen van Wogmeer. Blijft altijd spannend anls men in Belgi stout bier gaat brouwen. Deze is wel te drinken met wat koffie en melkchocolade, echter verfijnd kan je het niet noemen, daarvoor iets te dun en mat.

Dark brown large beige head. Taste is sour, malty sweetness with a short bitter finish . Disappointing

vickey9 (999) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2016
Dark with a creamy head. Nose is coffee, caramel and a bit of riped plums. Body is medium, carbon light, texture thick. Taste is a bit sour. Palate is dominated by sweet and sour plums, coffee, chicory. Sour aftertaste. [email protected]

ForlornHope (439) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin head that soon fades. Malt, plummy fruit and caramel on the nose with a slight acrid hint. Sweet to start and only a small amount of bitterness to finish. Rich, fruity and plummy. Slightly thin for a big beer. Not very stout-like.

karpik (856) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Caramel, bread, brown sugar, malt coffee in nose. Dark brown with tan head. Taste is medium sweet with lots of caramel and some chocolate, bread, molassess. Finish is low bitter, high to medium carbonation. Maybe not as I imagined "stout" but cannot say it is a bad dubbel ;]

At Uber, Seattle. Deepest red, foamy tan foam. Boozy, port wine, nice rich, very Belgian brown-abt flavor. Rich caramel, dark malts. Red fruity, alc is well balanced. Pretty delicious and interesting.
