With thanks to Edwin de Cock (yes, in Holland it is a normal name) I was able to try this beer. Erwin is the chairman of our 'PINT' tasting group at 'de Mug'. De Mug is ABT beer pub located in Middelburg, The Netherlands. Every first Tuesday of the month we blind-taste 6 beers in one particular style, this time it was stout and porters.

A - A pitch brown/black ale with a beige foam, which is quickly retracting.

S - Malty, dark fruit and chocolate.

T - Candy sugar, oak, wood, dark fruit, malts and chocolate bitter. A complex brew.

M - The body is very liquid and the carbonation is soft.

O - A good stout.

Thanks to Floydster for this gravy.

Pours a deep black color with ever so slight ruby highlights around the edges. Nice ice creamy tan head that leaves ok lacing.

Nose has alot of roasted malt in it, some coffee notes, a bit of alcohol.

Taste follows with big dark roasted malt flavor, defenitely slight coffee notes in here. A little bit of baker's chocolate, dry. A very large bitterness on the downslope of each pull. Bitterness rised through the finish, and lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is nice and viscous, but still missing a little bit of thickness. Seems too skim. Keeping in mind this is not an RIS, but still it seems a touch thin. Carbonation is just about right.

Drinkability is nice here, as the 9% is very easy to drink. A bit dangerous. However the intense bitterness detracts slightly from this.

Overall a fine double stout. Certainly one i would purchase again. I dont think this one will benefit too much from any extended aging, but im gonna put one away just in case. Im hoping some of the bitterness will reduce just a bit. Those of who love a good bit of bitterness in your big stouts, seek this one out, and be pleased. Good beer.
