Appearance: Blacker than that Professor Griff solo album.

Head: Thick and persistant.

Smell: A little booze with some espresso and chocolate.

Taste: A very refined and exotic stout. This is the only belgian stout that I've come across so far but it is everything that I've ever dreamed of. I imagine the De Dolle brewery through a sepia toned lens where maniacal scientists and their belgian hobbits feverishly develop elixirs using a long-forgotten codex to recreate the beverages of the flemish gods.

Drinkability: I could drink about a case of this stuff if I had more livers.

Bottle poured into a Stone Snifter. Bottled February 2013.

Has an incredible amount of tan head. This beer has set in in my fridge for sometime and I cannot believe the amount of explosive head that comes out of this thing. You would need a big gulp if you wanted to do an aggressive pour with this. Head finally settles and begins to flot with a 1/2 finger thickness. Smell is very strong with some sweet malt rather than roast and sour fruits. Taste is less sour than smell and has a hint of chocolate.

Served in a Biere de Miel Tulip at Novare Res. I love thr bottle, 33cl., almost looks like it was printed off and slapped on.

The beer is black with a creamy tan head. the head remains and eventually floats.

the nose is fruity almost blue and black berries, typical of a belgian stout. Not alot of roast but very nice.

the flavor matches, starting sweet and finishing wiht an almost tartness and fruitiness. I've had fruit beers with less flavor of fruti than this.

Overall nice a dumbed down version of black albert.

Having read a number of the other reviews, it seems like there is more variability in this beer than what I'm generally used to. The bottle I tried poured with a thick tan head that settled into a creamy, persistent lacing. I got a big boosey nose right away that really defined this beer for me. It wasn't unpleasant but rather, it was quite nice. Alcohol was up front in the taste but the rest of the flavor notes were strong enough to balance it well. There was a sour taste that set in fairly quickly and really distinguished this from other stouts. This one component to the taste added a lot of complexity and was what gave it the edge to stand up to the alcohol. I haven't seen anyone else mention this and it makes me wonder if the difference in this bottle came from the way it was handled and stored before I bought it. Medium body for a stout and a pleasant, creamy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed it and would buy more if I thought it would be consistent.

February 2013 bottling

A Pours a massive head that lingered for a few minutes before settling down and allowing me to pour the rest of the beer into the glass. Pitch black and mocha head.

S: Aroma of sweet malt, bittering hops and mocha. slightly sour aroma as well.

T: Flavors of sweet residual crystal sugars and burnt mocha coffee twinings. Cocoa, dark bakers chocolate, earthiness and eerily reminiscent of many robust stouts. Burnt raisins and dryness from added sugars seem to also be present. This is definitely not an Imperial stout but more of a hybrid between a Robust Porter and imperial stout.

M: Medium bodied with higher levels of carbonation comparitively to an imperial stout.

O: Overall this is a different beer that is worth trying. I have passed this one by many times, but finally got around to trying it out of necessity since I have enjoyed De Dolle's other beers many times. I think Ill stick with Still Nacht though as my favorite from them for the time being.
