look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 11.2oz bottle. In a Duvel glass, it looks virtually black, with a decently-sized, dark-ish head.

Smells very chocolatey, without any roastiness.

Taste is smooth, with something like vanilla and dry fruit notes ("very dry" prunes), chalkiness.

Enjoyable, and surprisingly relatively light. Just not amazing.

nice dark brown with a semi-creamy, frothy head.... looks beautiful
smell is kind of adjunct-like, commercial crappiness... this cant be from Belgium. this smells like American crap.
taste is much better than the smell. but still, not quality stuff. there's that little twang of 'something' that just lends to the credence that it is not a quality brew.... a bitterness like from a corn or something not really worthy. it's got a certain 'earthiness' which just seems to follow other brews of that aren't great. I guess it's decent for a drink, but i'm not buying it again. especially for the price.

Oh yes now this is a good irish dry stout. And brewed by a belgian!

Nose: Charcoal, mint, roasted chestnuts.

Taste: dry. Chocolate. Dark chocolate. Cream. Slightky astringent at the end. Basic but good. Nice and simple.

A pretty well made medium stout. You can keep looking for some complexity in the taste and can find it. I enjoyed it.

Pours a hazy dark brown, thick soapy light brown head, thin layer sticks with a few splotches of lace behind. Smell: toffee, mild earthy and herbal hopping, brown bread, mild roast. Taste: mild roast, toasted brown bread, lots of toffee and chocolate, dark fruit note, earthy hopping to balance with citrus peel note. Pillowy, dry finish. nice.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
