whoa, i am shocked to learn this beer is 7% abv. it felt a lot lighter to me than that, and certainly drinks more like a dry irish stout at 4% than it does as a foreign style so strong. clean looking brew, medium bodied and soil brown, with a tall head thats surprisingly light for how dark the liquid is. smells sweet like oats, and has less roast bitterness than most. there are some hops in here though, especially in the finish, giving a bit of a fruity flavor to the finish, the way lemon zest goes in espresso. similar complexion, less acidity. clean feeling beer too, only medium bodied and slick going down. the moderate carbonation is plenty, the big flavors do the talking, and its nice to listen awhile. coffee and cocoa in the finish, still think there may be some oats. overall an excellent example of the style fit for year round drinking.

Quite a bit of char/roast. Also, too thin.

Handsome dark beige foam on the black brew. Plenty of lacing in the Affligem chalice. Pleasantly spritzy on the tongue. Light and tingly mouthfeel.

There is just a touch of malty sweetness before the burnt flavors take over. Quite a bitter aftertaste. I tastes like the hops are well supplied, but there is so much charred grains there may be bitterness from that as well. Brewery says it's made with Magnum and Willamette hops.

This is a serious stuff. Bold and impressive flavors but I have to say that the drinkability is less than I would like. The toasted flavors are nice but the darkness obliterates every flavor before it. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.
