Pour is very dark reddish brown, translucence only noticeable when held to the light. A nice thick beige head rests up top, leaves decent lace and retains very well. Chocolate, bready and nutty malts make up the scent mostly, with some dark fruit there as well. Good strength.

Taste is nice. Chocolate, toasted bread, graininess, and a great dark fruit presence that intensifies with warmth. Some light earthy hoppiness. Solid flavors for a 4.5% stout, low sweetness. Mouthfeel is solid as well but maybe a touch on the thin side.

Not sure if this was attempting to be a dry stout really, but it manages to be a standout for the style I'd say. Very drinkable and nice flavors.

Poured from a 330ml bottle. Pours a dark chestnut brown. There's not too much to the nose: light roasted malt notes and little bit of fruit. Unremarkable. Taste is similar to that of a well-made porter, though maybe a little on the light-bodied side. It's roasty and smoky with good carbonation. A good session beer for those who like dark brews.

Poured into a glass chalice.

Black with tan head, starting at two fingers and then fading quickly. Dark, roasted malts on the nose with a sort of bitter, astringent smell as well. After a while it takes on a wet dog smell, which I can’t say is good. I get a lot more chocolate drinking it than with the aroma. The malt is really roasty, almost burnt-like. There’s a slight hint of bitter coffee, but that’s all. The taste is very nice and more complex than I was expecting. The finish is dry, like an Irish stout should be, but I think there is way too much carbonation in this. I want it to glide down my throat smoothly, but instead my tongue is assaulted by CO2. I think this could have been an excellent stout, but the carbonation takes a lot away from it in my opinion.

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

A - Poured a very nice deep rich black with a very thick, dense and creamy head that fades to leave thick creamy side lacing. Just wonderful.

S - Aromas of coffee, rich chocolate, light malty sweetness, maybe some honey. Very, very nice.

T - Taste is solid, very nice roasted malts, gentle bitter coffee notes. Light, light dark fruits here. Bit on the sweet side.

M - Mouthfeel is quite smooth and creamy. Very nice for the ABV.

O - Overall, a solid stout out of Belgium. Have to pick up a bottle of this.

Always been interested in this beer as I am with most stouts. Never knew it was only 4.5% and an Irish Dry style Stout, always nice to try things beyond the Imperials and adjunct infused ones.

A- Poured from the bottle into a standard sized tulip. The black bodied beer looks thinner coming out of the glass than most American stouts, something one would expect. A MASSIVE head forms to about two inches in height and retains like whipped cream. The cap eventually falls to a frothy ring and cloud and leaves a large amount of itself behind on the glass. Blankets of lace.

S- Malt forward aroma with a dry roast grain feel and a good toasted nutty note right there with the very dark stuff. Some dark fruit and from the nose it doesn't seem the least bit sweet.

T- Dry roast malt with some bitterness comes through with a grainy feel as the major flavor to me but nutty and toasted biscuit hints add good malt complexity. The roast malt brings some coffee and chocolate hints but not sweet and dessert-like. Yeast strain seems Belgian and adds fig, raisin and spicy hints lending another layer of good flavors.

MF- Feels light like a cloud and dried out on the palate but a good creaminess when agitated, not thin at all. High carbonation foams up nicely adding to the nice creamy feel. Dry roast bitterness lingers in the finish.

Actually impressively multi-dimensional for a 4.5% stout. The chocolate flavor builds a lot with time and some warmth but the yeast still shines. Best example of the style I have tried thus far.

3.8/5  rDev +2.2%

On-tap at Moeder Lambic on 4/7/2013. Pours a deep brown with light highlights at the base. Head is rocky, 1.5 inches, dense and khaki-colored. The lacing on this beer is incredible and creates a basket weave pattern along the walls of the glass. Nose expresses dark malts, lactose, artificial sweetener, a roasty quality and perhaps a kiss of vanilla. Taste is roasty/earthy with some char, lactose sweetenss and some hops bittering towards the back the lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body, but closer to light, with an even carbonation - nothing spectacular, but spot on for what it should be. Overall, a solid low abv stout, but not something I need to revisit.

Poured into a snifter glass. The beer pours dark brown to black with a thick, light tan head. The beer smells of dark roasted malt, chocolate, and fig. It's an interesting smelling stout. The taste follows the nose with some nice back end bitterness. The dark roasted malts also give some nice roasty flavors to the beer. The chocolate and light fig flavor also comes through. The body is light with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry. This is an easy stout to drink. This is a good beer.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with a small quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is of dry dark roasted malt, chocolate with a bit of dark dried fruity esters. Taste is sweet dry roasted chocolate malt flavored with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body with some good carbonation. Finishes with a dry roasted dark cacao malt with some bitterness on the end for balance. Overall not the best in class but a good respectable brew.
