Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beerpirates on 02-23-2011

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Collaboration brew with Stillwater Artisanal Ales (USA).

This Belgian Strong Ale was married to a still young but powerful style, the Black IPA.

You take a chocolate sweet strong ale together with the high & strong hop shedule of an IPA, and you get a fantastic result.

Another blind review via the blind bif. Thanks to Brez07.

Pours a deep brownish color, almost opaque. A finger of khaki colored head. The head falls to a top coating that leaves a few spots of lacing. A fairly mild smelling beer, it still has a lot going on. I smell raisin bran, plum wine, plastic, damp earthy forest, and root-beer. Sweet, and earthy...It tickles my nose. Root Beer, dark dry wine, herbs, raisins, and Asian sauce(star anise?). It has a lingering, earthy bitterness. Light to medium body, dry, low carbonation, slightly sticky, and mildly astringent. A well made beer with some good quality's; It just had a war with my taste-buds.

No idea what Im drinking, maybe a black IPA?

The reveal is an Outblack, a collaboration between De Struise, & Stillwater.

I had this on tap at Max's, continuing my string of B+ beers.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with some light coming through at the edges. There is a very thin layer of head.

Smell: Some mildly roasty malt with herbal hops. A bit spicy, very faint.

Taste: Some caramel and roast hit the tongue first. There are some herbal hops in there, but this was described as an IPA of sorts, so I thought there would be a little bit more. There is a spice from the yeast and a hint of molasses. Can't taste the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very little carbonation. Mildly dry finish.

Overall: Was expecting some more hops. Lots of malt sweetness and herbal notes. Still very good and I would have more. (708 characters)

On tap at Lord Hobo, 12oz pour

A: Pours black/dark brown, just under 1 finger light brown head that quickly dissipates. No lacing.

S: Tart dark fruits, very vinous, very similar to black albert minus the overload of chocolate (it is here though) and with more hops. Sweet, red wine, cherry, hint of rum. Raisins. Totally awesome nose. Completely took me by surprise.

T: Tart cherry and dark fruits, floral hops (with some citrus, though hard to pinpoint). Very vinous. Slightest bit bitter, very sweet. Lightly roasted malts, almost like a like RIS without harsh bitterness or char. Dried candied dark fruits. Fairly sweet finish.

M: Medium to light body, moderate carbonation. A little sticky/resinous, but not very much. Pretty smooth.

O: This was one hard to describe and hard to categorize beer! While some list it as a BSDA (as would I), a lot of people call it a black 'IPA' because of the strong hops. I'd say it's somewhere in between. A pretty awesome brew that I'll look forward to getting again when I can. (1,023 characters)

Just had a glass from this super solid collaboration on draft at ChurchKey. I was pretty bummed when I missed it at Paradiso-Georgetown's taps, so it was great to see it on the menu somewhere else. Can't wait to find a bottle, as well.

Overall, this beer had a lot of similarities to Stillwater's Existent - one of my faves among Strumke's beers. Very spicy, dark fruit, but where Existent has that thin farmhouse body and carbonation, the outblack is much creamier and softer. (478 characters)

2.92/5  rDev -25.3%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - The beer pours a ruddy mahogany hue and is capped with a tight and tidy tan froth that picks up the appearance a bit.

S - The brew is strange from the get-go, and the more I try to get into it, the less I can. Smells of bubblegum, chiefly; other very unusual notes abound. I am thinking Elizabeth Taylor 'Poison' perfume, but perhaps I have my old lady perfumes mixed up. As I begin to come around on the taste-side of things, I am starting to think that this smells a lot like Aqua-Fresh toothpaste.

T - Nicer taste than the aroma, doubtless, albeit still quite unusual. I get a bit of black tea and lavender flavors, atop a light somewhat raisin-bready malt. The bubble gum that I discerned and disdained in the nose is present in the flavor as well as a strange mint chutney note. Everything about this beer is ridiculous in decidedly good or bad way.

M - The feel is just fine; enhancing, expansive, softly effervescent.

O - Not my cup of tea, so to speak. (968 characters)

On-tap at Pizzeria Paradiso.

A: The BSDA is dark, a deep brown color that doesn't quite verge on black. A thin white head comes with the pour.

S: The nose has chocolate, anise, raisins and hops, more or less in that order. Very rich, it lacks the telltale sage aroma that has defined many Stillwater collaborations. Very warming and roasted, but not scorched.

T: Sweet and dark, the ale capitalizes on its Belgian constitution, bringing candi sugars, raisons, anise and chocolate to the forefront. The ale, while dark, is not roasted, so there are not burnt off flavors to contend with. Several other reviews mention cherries, sorry but they missed me. The dark flavors are well at home amongst the caramel and biscuit malts. Hops aren't a key contributor. The like how cardamom-like flavors gradually work their way out, adding spicy depth to the ale.

M: The mouthfeel is spicy, but unlike all of Stillwater's previous offerings. This one doesn't rely on roasted malts or sage to make its mark, allowing the molasses and raisins to come to the forefront. I'd never guess that it is a 10% beer.

O: The intense strength drags the overall down a bit. (1,153 characters)

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. I really like the aroma. I get a lot of brown sugar, molasses and dark cherry notes. There is also some candy sugar in the aroma. The flavor is a mix of candy sugar and toffee. There is also a strong ginger ale quality to the flavor with is unexpected. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but not as good as I hoped it would be. (438 characters)

Bottle from one of the store in Brussels...
Pours a nice blackness with about 3 fingers if head that stick around for quite a while.
Nose is rather light, with some spices... nutmeg, allspice
Taste is a creaminess that is unique. A nice Belgian yeast infused light stout flavor with some coffee, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon...
This is incredibly hard to describe, because it is so damn complex. Bottles have zero cherry tartness, wondering about the taps out there... as this doesn't seem to be any kind of a sour. The abv on this is nowhere to be found, at all... nicely done.
Glad I picked some of these up... definitely worth looking for one. (645 characters)

On-tap 4/16/2011 at Armsby Abbey in Worcester served in an over-sized wine glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color, short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains sour cherries, roasted malts, dark fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts off with a burst of tart cherries. Then some sweet flavors of chocolate and other dark fruits come in next. There are touches of hops and Belgian yeast in the background. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The after-taste is tart but slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, not the best representation of two styles that they crossed, it’s a decent beer and it’s something a bit different but not something I would want to drink regularly. (887 characters)

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a super huge thick foamy head with great retention and very good lacing. Aroma consists of semi-sweet Belgian malt with great notes of fruity ester. Taste is also a nice mix between some sweet malt with nice fruity ester and light residual candi sugar notes. Body is quite full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Another very nice beer from two of my favourite brewers. (451 characters)

Had at Armsby Abbey 4/16
Served in a snifter

A: This beer pours an opaque brown with a one finger of khaki head. head recedes quickly, leaving wisps of sticky lacing.

S: Nose is medicinal cherries - almost like Vicks 44. There are faint hints of chocolate, but the Vicks 44 aroma is the most dominant.

T: Taste is... nothing belgian, nothing stout. And here comes that Vich 44 cherry taste in the flavoring, hints of sour funk and a bit of vinegar. As the beer warms up, the previous flavoring does not disappear, but added is a bit of bitter chocolate amidst the tart... and a weird citrus, pine bite in the after taste.

M: Medium body, higher carbonation, light prickly feel feel and finish.

O: Goes down.. better as it warms, not extrodinarily tasty, somewhat filling, decent kick, and not a very good representation of style. I was very excited for this beer but it just didn't hit at all for me and would certainly not seek it out again. (950 characters)

Poured into a snifter glass from a bottle labeled Lot 01/01/2011 with a “best by” date of 01/02/2016. Glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As poured the beer is a rich dark brown color and has a 1” tan head that recedes to a layer of foam with a ring around the glass. Sipping leaves a sheet of foam on one side that slides back to the liquid while on the other there is a pattern of small patches and legs of lacing. The ring of foam persists quite a long time.

Smell: The aromas include some cocoa and licorice along with spices like cardamom and nutmeg. There isn’t much in the way of either hops or alcohol showing but there does seem to be some pine in here as well.

Taste: The flavors include roasted malt, dark chocolate, the cardamom and the licorice. The hops don’t really show in the flavors but the alcohol does even though it is not at all hot.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is on the full side of medium and smooth with persistent gentle carbonation. The finish is moderately long and begins with the sweetness of the chocolate and spice mixture then begins to dry out and as it does a hint of smoke appears then disappears again. At the end there’s some dark roasted malt flavor in the back of the mouth.

Drinkability and Overall Impression: Drinkability here is good, but it’s not a beer for regular consumption. With this ABV and the strength of the flavor profile this is one to save for a special occasion. While I’d be willing to have it again I can think of lots of other beers I’d enjoy as much. My overall impression is that this is an interesting and imaginative beer that mostly works. That said, for my tastes the there is are not enough hops showing and a bit too much in the way of spices. (1,770 characters)

Got a few bottles of this gem at Geers in Gent. Doopie also hooked me up with a couple. Thanks dude!

From a bottle into a snifter.

APPEARANCE: A dark pour makes a three finger, medium-thick looking, tan head with great retention. Opaque seal brown in color with medium carbonation. Head slowly fades to a substantial and persistent foam cap that leaves some fluffy lacing down the glass. A good sized foam cap remains the whole way down leaving some decent looking lacing.

SMELL: This is quite nice. Lots of caramel sweetness, dark fruits, and some spicy yeast notes with aromas of clove and coriander. The candy sugar is definitely there, as is a hit of cocoa powder in the back. Complex, bold, and very interesting Good stuff.

TASTE: Caramel again, with dark fruits and lots of spicy flavors. Sweet sugar and some faint rye bread in the malt bill as well. Cocoa powder comes out after the swallow, as does a plethora of spicy clove and coriander flavors. Bold but shorter lived aftertaste is plenty sweet and spicy with just a touch of booze. Great stuff, but just not quite as impressive as the nose. Still, wonderful again here.

PALATE: Medium body with higher levels of carbonation. Quite creamy smooth enough on the palate, goes down smooth, alcohol nowhere to be felt, and finishes slightly mouth-coating. Some lingering heat reminds you it’s 10%, but it’s exactly what the doctor ordered for this brew. Good feel.

OVERALL: Definitely one of my favorite Struise beers and it rannks up there with the other big boys in the Belgian strong dark ale category. This is one of my top styles, so that’s saying a lot. Fantastic stuff. Bold, enticing nose and flavor proile, as well as a full, creamy palate to support the show. A brew worth tracking down if you’re a fan of the brewery and/or the style. Hopefully I can find a few more bottles before they dry up. Recommended. (1,895 characters)

On tap at Mikkeller Bar. From notes.

A - Sort of a muddy brown and black mix. Red on the edges. Light gets through on the sides. Ring of khaki head around the top is the only head. No visible carbonation.

S - Alot of lemon came through for me. Some grassiness and a nice floral element. Whatever the black portion of this is supposed to be is not present in what I smell. Just smelled like an IPA or more like a saison.

T - Small amount of roastiness with more lemon, grassy, floral notes. Some hops show through also. Alot going on here. I wrote down that this was interesting and deep. Some roastiness in the finish.

M - Mild carbonation with a full to medium body. Lingering roasty bitterness in the finish.

D - Quite complex and tasty. Different and worth a shot. I like the combination of flavours. (808 characters)

IMO this brew is more representative of spiced/herb/vegetable beer rather than of Belgian Strong Dark Ale, nor this is a hybrid between BSDA and dark IPA.
Pours thick, well formed tan head that clings to the walls, with good retention over the dark brown, opaque body with mahogany highlights at the edges.
Basically smells like herbal liqueur – the aroma resembles rosemary, nutmeg and mint, there's unrefined sugar and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor profiles consists of sugary sweetness, roasted malts with chocolaty notes, strong herbal overtones, warming alcohol and towards the moderately sweet finish emerges hoppy bitterness accompanied by spicy notes that I couldn’t tell whether originate from hops, yeast derived phenols or actual spices used. Aftertaste is herbal with mild roastiness, hoppy bitterness and warmth, a characteristics that I'd expect in Imperial Stout. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation, tends to coat the lips with sticky film.
Alcohol is too evident and herbs/spices/vegetables too strong.
(330 ml, BB date reads 1. February 2016, into the Struise 150 ml tulip).

In short: dark, sweet, warming ale with strong herbal, spicy and roasted notes. (1,191 characters)

I got a few of these bottles from Urbain, much appreciated! A collaboration beer, and a hybrid to boot (Belgian Strong Dark + Dark IPA).

It pours dark brown color, nearly black, a little light showing through the edges. Thin tan foam on top. Smells to me a bit like a sweet RIS, lots of roasted character. Some citrusy hops but not as much as I expected from Urbain's description. This smells more like a hoppy stout than a dark IPA (or a Belgian Strong).

The hops come through in the taste, but mainly in the aftertaste. The main thrust of this beer seems to be roasted malts and some dark fruit, nearly quad-like in flavor except for the hops.

Thicker than an average IPA, maybe on par with a Belgian Strong in body, still drinkable with the dry and bitter aftertaste. Recommended, this went down easily despite the ABV. (827 characters)

I picked up a bottle of Outblack from the store at the Alvinne Festival in Belgium and brought it back with me to the US. I tried it the other night and was very impressed with this beer.

It poured very dark in color, almost black with a large mocha color head which dissipated fast. The aroma to me smelled of chocolate, malt, and honey. It was thinner than I expected. The alcohol content was well-hidden with this beer.

Great beer-I hope to try it again someday. (467 characters)

Bottled on 1/1/2011

Purchased through Struise Yeast Shop, Belgium

Price - $12.87 U.S. including shipping/bottle.

The appearance is a deep burgandy color with a 1 inch creamy tan head. Lacing tries to stick around but struggles. Fairly clean with no sediment or floatables evident.

An intense aroma of ginger hits the nose, wow. Banana, brown sugar, dark fruits, hops and a fair amount of spice follow it up. The smell is very different from anything I've ever experienced. It reminds me of incense.

Full flavored and closely resembles the aroma. Ginger, spices, raisin, hops, alcohol, all there.

The mouthfeel starts off smooth and with very little heat considering the alcohol content. The carbonation is lite and near perfect for the style. The finish is slitely bitter and dry.

Overall this was a unique beer. Not what I expected but good. Having said that it did quickly vanish from my glass. I have several more and will revisit it through out the summer. (970 characters)

Wow what an interesting beer. The aroma is so unique, not sure I have ever smelled a beer like this before, getting some malty notes backstage and citrus notes front stage. The taste starts of with a strong citrus note then ends with malty sweetness. This beer has a lot going on and that is exactly why I like it so much. The mouthfeel is a lot lighter and smoother for a beer with this dark color. Simply put an amazing beer

From 03/27/11 notes. Shared by nimbleprop at a local DC tasting; thanks Mac.

a - Pours a very dark brown color with less than an inch of tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of roasted malts, citrus hops, Belgian yeast, and chocolate.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, toasted malts, citrus, pine, Belgian yeast.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall an interesting and nice beer from De Struise. Not the biggest Black IPA fan in general as I feel the roasted characteristics usually end up dominating, but in this one you got some definite citrus from the hops. Would have again. (624 characters)

33 cl bottel poured into my struise glass

Pours an almost black color, really dark brown - almost can't see through it. Some ruby highlights under the ample tan/off-white head. Head fades pretty quickly and leaves no lacing.
Smells of coriander and an almost heather aroma. Picking up a slight alcohol nose.
Alcohol bite upon first tasting it, but it is mellowed out quickly with the sweetness from the malt. Faint chocolate taste and a very faint hop presence.
Overall a decent tasting beer, but not too complex. Well at least not as much as I thought it would be. (569 characters)

Consumed at a recent DC area tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Thanks to nimbleprop for opening this one up.

Pours near black with a good light head and some moderate lacing as it makes its way down. The nose brings forward some dark fruits, a bit of roast, and a piney/spruce-type hop character. Light yeasty spice there as well. Very strange and I'm not sure everything really comes together. The flavor adds in a bit more integration and the hops and underlying beer come together a bit more. Yeast is nice, but I still don't quite love where this is going. Good body with just a touch of booze. Well made, but I didn't really love the direction. (652 characters)

11.2oz. bottle served into a tulip glass

Pours a dark cola brown. Completely opaque; it looks like rich mahogany. It appears to have a decent viscosity to it when I swirl it around in the glass. Two fingers of sand colored foam leave some spotty lines of lace.

Outblack has a pretty interesting nose. I pick up on the hops first: a tasteful amount of grapefruit and orange. Distant pine. There's some cocoa powder and breadcrust coming from the malt profile. This beer is pretty spicy, surprisingly. I'm getting lots of green cardamom and clove-like incense in the nose.

The taste follows the nose. Lots of spice right up front: cardamom, old clove, toasted cinnamon. The malt flavor is mostly like Cocoa Puffs, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and caramel candies. There's a flutter of plum, but it gets obscured by the soft grapefruit pith flavor from the heavy hop dose. It's pretty tasty, but the spice bill keeps it from elite status. It's interesting enough to appreciate, but it clashes with the rest of the beer's flavors for me, ultimately.

Outblack is a nicely medium-bodied beer. The part of your palate that tastes the heavy malt flavors wants it to be thicker and stickier, while the part of your palate digging on the soft hop flavors wants it to be lighter. Together, the beer reaches some sort of compromise. It's creamy yet light. Add in a satisfying level of carbonation, and you have all the indications of a very well-crafted beer.

Overall? Outblack is a decently complex experimental beer that is well worth drinking. It's certainly good, but the heavy handed spice bill holds it back a bit. Even though drinkability is gone, I have to say a good word for it here. You can't tell that this beer is 10% ABV. It drinks way too smoothly for its size. If Drinkability were still a scoring category, I'd give it a 5.0. Sorry for not reviewing you before the scoring change, Outblack. (1,901 characters)

Appearance: Again, follows the base Black Albert in appearance, black in color. This time there is a thinner head at 1/4", creamy tan, and provides curtains of sticky lace.

Smell: Chocolate sweetness but the spice hits you quickly (maybe cardamom?) on the nose, a lot of spicy complexity going on here, again some coffee underneath.

Taste: The spicy cardamom flavor is pleasantly up-front, followed by a mellowed Black Albert combination of coffee and chocolate. Sweeter (much) than BA, but again smooth and delicious on the palate.

Mouth feel: Once more Struise excels here, smooth, creamy, and (this time) very light on the palate.

Overall: Again, as maybe I've come to expect from Struise, an incredibly flavorful beer, alcohol is completely and I mean COMPLETELY masked, very smooth, and very tasty. Urbain's collaboration's seem so inventive and so unique, really definitive of the term craft brewer in my mind. (922 characters)

Picked up a few of these from the Struise webshop. Served in a Struise cervoise. Best before February 2016.

A - Pours with a finger of dark tan foam that settles to a thick collar and partial cap. Body is a near-black that reveals some chocolate brown at the fringes of the glass.

S - The aroma is very unique, with heavy perfume, nutmeg, cardamom, pine, cocoa, smoke, licorice, candi sugar, toasted grains, and a faint whiff of alcohol. It's very complex, but it's not something that I find completely appealing - too much cardamom and spice character for my preference.

T - The taste is much more enjoyable for me, with a medley of Belgian chocolate, rye, dark fruits, estery yeast, and anise bitterness in the finish. Not much overt hop flavor, but alcohol is better hidden.

M - Carbonation is a bit higher than I prefer, but is still appropriate for the style. Not much alcohol heat at all. Medium body that finishes chewy and sticky.

D - Where did it go? As Jason Allen would say - this is absolutely crushable. I finished a 33cl bottle in 15 minutes. The name is certainly appropriate, and I always marvel at Urbain's ability to concoct easy-drinking beers likely to leave one passed out on a sack of grain. (1,218 characters)
