Dark brown/black with a small bubbly tan head that pops away immediately, leaving just a thin string.
Deeply roasted malt and coffee on the nose, some cocoa powder, caramel, but not too sweet.
Roasted malt, some nut, cocoa powder, bit of lactose, not too rich. Burnt bread and some acidic coffee in the finish. A hint of dark fruit too, some zestiness.
Kinda watery, kinda over-carbonated. Aftertaste is a continuation of the finish, as simple as that.
Not too good, unfortunately. The weakest Brewfist i've tried.

Roasty, chocolate, lightly smoky aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet, with a bit of fruity malt character. Finish is roasty and dry, with a touch of char.

12 oz bottle poured into TeKu

A- Jet black with tall-tall head that fades to almost nothing. Took forever to pour due to the amount of carbination
S- Just hints of coco and coffee... not very areomatic
T- A bit metalic and off-putting. Maybe a bit of coco and stale coffee
M- Too thin and carbinated for the style... paired with the taste, it is hard to drink

O- dissappointed. About half of this is headed for the drain.

Got this one at the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.

From a bottle into a snifter
Best before 30 May 2014
IBU: 24

APPEARANCE: Clear, light brown pour yields a huge, 3+ finger, loose, Swiss cheese, fizzy and foamy light tan head with lousy retention. Bistre brown body with higher levels of carbonation. Head fades quickly to a loose, foamy cap with piles of carbonation all over the place. A ring remains but leaves no lacing down the glass. Way too transparent and foamy.

SMELL: Lactose, sweet cream and caramel are there. Milk chocolate for sure with some roasted notes as well. Mostly lactose and chocolate. Medium strength.

TASTE: Not nearly as approachable as the nose. Much too carbonated too. Light burnt notes with lactose milk sugar up front. Not much though, as it begins rather empty. Medium strength and dry finish of roasted grain, stale coffee bitterness, light lactose and sweet cream with a touch of milk chocolate. Pretty mild in flavor with stale coffee as well. Meh.

PALATE: Lighter body and piles, and I mean piles of carbonation. Airy and bubbly going down, finishing very dry on the palate. Way too light and bubbly for the style.

OVERALL: Pretty bad. The mild flavors and stale coffee are at least tolerable, but the absurd amount of carbonation ruin both the look and feel, the latter of which makes this one a complete chore to drink. Drain enjoyed most of this one. Pass.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2013. Picked up some time back from Trembling Madness in York. I'm curious as to how they decided on the name for this one.

Poured into a Delirium chalice. Bottle conditioned. A very dark brown hue that appears pitch black in the glass. Yields a large head of creamy light-brown foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of intense roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee, burnt grain, molasses, a hint of syrup and faint earthy yeast. Some slightly sour overtones.

Tastes of roasted malt with a chocolate character and a dry finish. Notes of dark malt, burnt grain, chocolate, coffee, subtle molasses, mild lactic acid and earthy yeast. Slightly sweet, with a twinge of liquorice and a malty bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly tingly, but thin and watery for the style. Somewhat astrigent, with an aftertaste of bitter roasted malt, mild cocoa and faint sourness.

Hmmmm, OK but not amazing. Looks alright, though the head fades rather quickly. The aroma is pretty good, with a nice blend of chocolate and roasted malt, but the flavour is less well-rounded. Body is thin and insubstantial - could certainly use beefing up for a creamier texture. A worthy effort that falls short of glory. No harm in trying it, but no need to seek it out.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Dark brown, nearly black pour with nice two finger beige head with nice retention and lacing. The nose is nutty, sweet, and roasty with hints of cocoa, coffee, tobacco, and just a touch of smokiness. The taste follows suit with some strong nuttiness along with hints of cocoa, roasted coffee with milk, brown sugar, dark fruits, and some subtle milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is a bit fizzy and slightly thin with a sweet, dry finish. Overall, this felt more like a Porter to me. I'm not a fan of Milk Stouts, but this wasn't as sweet as most I've tried. Solid beer, but nothing special.
