3.01/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

APPEARANCE- black with ruby highlights, thin tan head with stringy lace and poorly formed legs

AROMA- sweet maltiness with low dried fruit notes - prune, plum, - faint clove in background, big floral element of rose and violet, some acetylaldehyde, no diacetyl, maybe a slight hint of hop-derived anise,... more caramel malt on backend..no alcohol.very inviting, but im ready for this to be syrup

FLAVOR- unexpectedly dry, I suppose from dominant roasted malt flavor, low levels of caramel malt sweetness, spicy phenol or alcohol, and extremely faint cherry note. Very simple beer, that is basically it for flavor. Long finish

MF- a bit prickly and lightly astringent, but not unpleasant, medium-light bodied, turns a little plush as it warms, but alcohol and roast do needle the palate throughout, medium carbonation,

OVERALL- not bad, but a little dull, vaguely reminiscent of a St Fuellien yeast character

I think I got this on my last trip through Belgium last spring, lot #2 best before end of 2014, so should be right in its prime hopefully. Served at cellar temp, about 50F which is about what it recommends (10C), poured into my Kate the Great tulip.

Pours a much bigger head than I anticipated, creamy slight darker colored fizzy fluffy head that looks like it will disappear quickly but then just sits there mocking me since i had to stop pouring to keep enough room to nose it. Looks like I'll have to wait a bit longer, as it leaves nice foamy lacing on the sides, a just about pitch black beer with a thin layer of light at the thin parts.

Nose has that typical export stout dark malt blend, a dark black malt, with some roasted malts, a little charred malt character but not really acrid, hint of coffee with the roast and burned espresso bean, faint touch of cocoa and caramel, as well as a sweet candi sugar and mild toffee, with hint of booze. A dry powdered black malt thing too.

Taste starts rich, it hints at getting creamy but never really does. It comes in different waves too, the creamy hint leads to a melting chocolate taste, milk chocolate with a little bitter dark chocolate too, into a little black malt and hint of roast, a little charred malt character that hints at acrid and very dark taste like pure black. Next comes a bitterness cutting through, some earthy like hops that get a ltitle spicy mix with the bitter dark chocolate roast. Then a wave of sugary flavors wash over, a little candi sugar, caramel, mild syrupy note, before back to a mild warming booze with more black malt and roast, hint of over cooked coffee, hint of a metallic roast, and touch of a fluffy nougat carafa like note. Finish is pretty bitter as the earthy spicy hops kick up a bit, mostly dry but a little sticky, hint more cocoa dust, caramel, and more earthy bitter charred roasted malts.

Mouth is fuller bod but not super heavy or rich in the end, lots of fluffy carb maybe a bit over carbonated as it seems to get in the way a little.

Overall not bad, a nice export style stout with the dark malts, roasty, black malts, hints of cocoa and caramel, a little burnt notes, candi sweetness that still stays really dry, maybe a bit too much on the burnt like notes but not too bad, a bit too much carbonation too surprising for what it's gone through.

Lot #07. Best by date of "End of 12". Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a solid black color (just a very light touch of translucence at the bottom of the glass) and about 2/3 inch of light brown head that had low-moderate retention and very light lacing.

The aroma was pretty neutral, very light roast and just a light yeasty spice note. The beer was pretty similar on the tongue, although a bit better well defined. There was a fruity taste, some where in the cherry-grape range, and the roast note was there, but light.

The body was a bit thinner than I would have liked, and the brew wasn't sticky. The beer had a finish that was mostly dry, but did have a a touch of sweetness. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quickly and easily, and I could have a couple in a sitting. Overall, a pretty nice brew, worth trying if you see it.

11.2oz bottle purchased at Total Wine in Spokane for $6.99. According to the label, this was part of “Lot # 07,” and is best by December of 2013.

Poured a viscous looking black that changes not one iota when held up to light. Big, bubbly,two thick-finger tan head that hung around for a few minutes, then dropped to a still-substantial looking collar, leaving spotty lace on the sides of my Iron Goat snifter.

A rich smelling beer. Dark fruits, pipe tobacco, toffee and a little bit of coffee greeted the nose.

There’s more coffee in the taste than in the nose, with a coffe-like bitterness being the first element that hits the taste buds. That initiall bitterness is then wrapped in a sweet and rich cloak of chocolate and figs. There’s a moderate hop zap at the swallow.

Somewhat light in the body for such a flavorful beer, but probably about normal when you consider it’s a Belgian stout. Carbonation is about right for the style. The mouthfeel is prickly, yet creamy and coating.

A very tasty beer. I’m sad that I only have one measly Euro bottle of it. This is something to splurge on once in a while.

Poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Tournay Black is black with a fluffy tan head leaving sticky chunks of foamy lace.

Smell is bright fruity esters, with a pithy zest.l Over-ripe, there's some weight here...

Taste is robustly acridly charred. Fruity esters struggle mightily to break through. Caramel, some grape.

Mouthfeel is sharply crisp, dry.

Drinkability is decent, loads of flavor, but sharp elbows here.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a nice rich dark black hue with a big, fluffy mocha head that fades very slowly and leaves nice retention.

S - Good milk chocolate, candi malts, brown sugar, faint coffee, and a rather strange peppery spice note.

T - Taste is similar. I love the chocolate and almost burnt molasses/brown sugar, but there is an almost phenolic finish that when mixed with the alcohol is somewhat unpleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is solid enough, nice and creamy.

O - Overall, glad to try it at the festival as it is something I see on the shelf quite often.

11.2 oz bottle dated best by May 2012 served in a snifter.
This dark mahogany beer has a durable tan head and leaves very good lacing. The near creamy texture overlays an unusual palate that seems both full and light, and has a pleasant, semi-dry finish. Although it is slightly light in color for a stout and has an unusual (yeasty, boozy and hoppy) aroma, in tasting this is indeed a Belgian stout: it has the flavor of a rather spicy and hoppy export stout with the added complexity imparted by Belgian yeast and in-bottle refermentation. The dark roasted malts do come to the fore for a moment now and again in the finish, then linger in the durable aftertaste.

Served in a narrow snifter.

A - Ruby brown hue with a large tan head. Fair retention and lacing.

S - Big milk chocolate, light bitterness, slight coffee and candi sugar.

T - Soft notes that follow the nose. Balance is good, but a lack of bold/robust flavors makes this beer forgettable.

M - Fairly creamy for the style. Medium- body with mild carbonation.

O - Not a huge fan of the style and this is no exception. Not painful to consume, although I'll look the other way next time I spot one.

Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours a dark ruddy brown, appearing nearly black in the glass. Healthy three finger brown head with good retention and massive lacing. Looks nice. Aroma of dark fruit with a lot of plum, toasted malt, chocolate and a slight mineral element. Flavor of dark and dried fruit, chocolate, coffee and slight hops on the finish. A Belgian influence to the yeast and fruit. Complex with interesting flavor progression. Nice medium body with excellent creaminess and active carbonation. Appropriately somewhat dry and slightly sour as expected from an export stout. I lean towards the Russian and American style of stout, but I really enjoyed this, one of the nicer export stouts I've had.

11.2 oz bottle into a goblet.

Pours a deep ruddy brown, with a finger of thick light mocha colored head. This retains with a frothy ¾ finger which leaves back swathes of lacing that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma smells of cocoa, brown sugar, dark fruit, and a good bit of peppery spice. Underlying alcohol warmth adds a bit of fullness to the nose.

The taste is cocoa powder, caramel, mellow ripe fruit, and then some darker roasted malt character along the back. This ends dry and spicy on the finish. The mouthfeel is fuller bodied, with a softer creaminess to the carbonation that expands out into the mouth and prickles the tongue a bit. The overall mouthfeel is pretty mellow though while the alcohol warmth that is present mostly pops the spiciness of the finish.

The was decent enough I guess and while there was an assortment of flavors here, the strength of the spice just kind of overran everything else at times, giving the profiles a bit of a flat feel. This wasn’t offensive or anything but I doubt that I’ll be trying it again either.

3.9/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – jet black with about two fingers’ worth of khaki-colored foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell – hops are present, but there’s a good blend between the hops and the malts. It’s not as malt heavy as you would expect a stout to be. There’s something else there, very subtle, but I can’t identify it. Probably the candi sugar mentioned on the label.

Taste – malts are better tasted than smelled, but the hops have a poiniant introduction, but are noticed more in the feeling than in the taste. Seems like a higher abv than what it is. The candi sugar I’m sure adds the peculiar sweet taste felt toward the middle. Very subtly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel – more on the watery side than I would have expected with a stout.

Overall – Very good-tasting and interesting brew! Very much worth a sampling!

A: Pours dark brown with a massive tan head, that starts off creamy but turns soapy and uneven. Dissipation takes a while and leaves nice lacings.

S: Roasted malts, semi-sweet. Some coffee, some chocolate, but to put it in a nice way; it's not the strongest smelling Stouts I've had...

T: Sweet roasted malts, vanilla and smoke as well. Strong black coffee and some faint notes of dark bitter chocolate. Some dark dried fruits in the back.

M: Body is thin and carbonation is mild. Aftertaste lingers wiht a balanced bitterness.

O: Overall, I'm quite dissapointed; way too thin for may taste. It feels like it lacks large quantities of malt...

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

The colour is very deep brown-red (80 EBC), the liquid is clear. The three finger pale brown head is very airy and uneven. It slowly sinks, leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Lots of yeast in the bottle.

The smell is very roasted ad a bit sweet. Distinct alcohol. Coffee, roasted nuts and liquorice. Lots of pleasant notes, however a bit thin.

The taste is a bit sweet. Roasted notes of coffee, dark chocolate and sweet liquorice. Some plums and pumpernickel. The body is thin. The aftertaste got some coffee candy, alcohol and solvents. It is short and leaves just traces of colour malt in the finish.

The carbonation is light, the medium sized bubbles very smooth. The liquid is thing, especially in the view of 7,6 % alcohol.

A thin and uninteresting black beer. Not impressed.

The brew is dark brown and clear, a frothy tan head leaving loads of lacing. Good curtains.

Very heavy dark dried fruits in sherry, a whiff of cold coffee, quite charming.

Tasting sweet, brown sugar, dark syrup, dried dates and figs, sherry and Madeira, dark dry chocolate.

Medium carbonation, very small foamy bubbles, a soft, oily and slightly sticky texture, yet a modest dry finish.

A really nice and smooth stout, not very dry and not very hop dominated.

I bought this 750ml bottle at DeCicco's (Brewster) for $9.99; better value per ounce than a small bottle. Label says "Black" and not "Noire", is from Lot #1, and the best-before notch indicates 04/2011. A tad late. Quaffed yesterday (28AUG11) on the upstairs porch while watching Irene whip the rain and leaves around.

Poured into a Delerium Tremens tulip, this stout was a dense, opaque, dark brown color. Head was light beige, creamy and frothy, sitting at about 1/2" and creating good lacing. Nose had some choco and roasty malts; nothing strong, but pleasant. Though quite smooth on the tongue, Black was rather thin for a stout - a big letdown.

Bitter choco flavors first hit the palate, with some roasty coffee action, and a bit of acridity. Maybe a little mocha and molasses, too, before transitioning to a mildly floral finish. Though the flavor is pleasant, this one really lacks complexity. I found nothing in the way of dark fruit, for example. One and done for this bier, especially at the current price... Prosit!!

This opened with a huge hiss. A gentle pour soon revealed that this is carbonated to ridiculous levels, like a Duvel. It actually irks me a little when beers are like this—2/3 foam, uncontrollable, and 1/3 beer. Can’t even pour out the bottle. The head is huge and rocky and dense like kraeusen. It obviously holds well, and laces the glass with sticky, drying webs of foam. However, I no longer consider a big fluffy head to be an asset of a beer if it is accomplished by overcarbonation—it seems to me that the American craft brew scene is overly attached to the appearance of a big head, and tends to praise this even when in fact it is actually the side product of a defective mouthfeel caused by overly aggressive carbonation, of which Americans are not nearly critical enough. To me, the feel and texture of the beer is dramatically more important than its appearance. That said, this is pretty after the rockiness falls. But it was not pretty at full peak. Too sticky looking and unnatural.

On the nose I pick up some plum and fresh fig, and that harshness of overcarbonation and perhaps infection that plagued some of my homebrews. Some candi sugar for sure, but it smells a bit dull or muted. I suspect this bottle is old and I’m picking up some oxidation. Best before end of 2011. These best before dates are utterly useless. Who knows how long they consider this thing good. On another whiff, I get licorice tones. Some coffee is emerging as this warms. But that harsh overcarbonation smell is present throughout, and distracting. Also, some metallic character. Overall, a surprisingly muted aroma for a stout, and a Belgian beer.

Seems like sort of a clash between the dark fruity flavors of candi syrup and the acidic roastiness of a stout. Wish I knew what kind of roasted malts they used. Palate strikes me as licorice and currants or raisins upfront, followed by a wash of acidic roasted malts. On the whole, it is semi-dry, with a bitter finish. I actually think these flavors could work pretty well together without clashing so much if not for the ridiculously aggressive carbonation bite. It obscures the subtleties of this brew. Plus, the flavors just don’t pack a lot of… flavor. It seems a bit dull and watery for a stout of this strength.

Mouthfeel is harsh and sharp from overcarbonation. This carbonation level does not meld well with the roasted malts and acidity of the stout. Too sharp. This is a ridiculous level of carbonation for a stout. Makes me wonder if this was the intention, or, more likely, if I got an infected bottle.

Well, this one goes to show you that there is nothing magical about Belgium, and not every beer they turn out is amazing simply because it is brewed there. This one is unbalanced, sharp, and clashing, while simultaneously lackluster and dull. Bleh. Definitely not an inspiration towards Belgian Stout.

In a word: lackluster.

Body is jet black. Poured to a half inch head, the head is foamy and tan. Eventually dissipates into a cap and ring, leaving lots of sticky lacing on the glass.

Smells of dark roasted malt and dark fruit, cherries, chocolate, ash.

Tastes of dark malt and some charred ash. Dark fruits, raisins and cherries, chocolate, and coffee. Some sweetness from candi sugar. Dry, ashy finish. Sort of sweet and sour.

Body is medium and carbonation provides a slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Overall, a dark, charred malt beer that is like a belgian quadruple, but much darker and ashen. Can make a good night-capper.

Aroma has a strong smoky tone with coffee and molasses components and hints of caramel and nuts. It pours a deep sable with a respectable, if not thick, light tan head. Flavor is smoky and has unsweet chocolate, roast coffee and molasses tones with a hint of caramel. Texture is fairly smooth, not as thick as most stouts, and just a little tingly.

Labeled BLACK not Noire-probably for the US. Nice, jet black color with a sizeable tan/cocoa like head. Nice lacing on down the glass. Somewhat metallic, earthy aroma. Yeasty and sharp flavor right upfront. Some hop bite. Faint roasted quality. Mild cocoa notes as it warms. Earthy and bready-more Belgian than stout like if anything. Too thin for my liking. An ok example of a Belgian stout but I have had better for sure.

Lot #01! Best before end of 2011! Served from bottle into a Delirium Tremens snifter. Poured pitch black with a two finger beige head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cream, slight roasted malt, hints of caramel, and slight nuttiness. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark chocolate, cream, and a slight roastiness. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this brew wasn't that bad, but it also wasn't that great. Neither the aroma nor flavor were very robust in this one which was quite disappointing. The elements that were there were quite nice, but it just lacked in intensity. Glad I got to try this one, but once is enough for me unless they can work on the robust aspect.

I poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle into a SA perfect pint glass. Jet black pour with a fizzy little white head. The aroma is sweet, malts and candy sugar. It starts with sweet chocolate, candi sugar, and plums. It has a lingering sweet finish. The body is medium and it is well carbonated. IMO a BSDA, decent, maybe too sweet.
