Says STOUT on the bottle twice. This is not a stout, and if it is, it's the worst one I'v ever had. Over carbed, thin and weak. What a shitty beer. It seams like a complete gimmick to me using a TV show to sell a beer and it being complete garbage. I poured this beer after 2 sips, complete waste of $12. Go fuck yourself Ommegang.

Poured in a goblet.

Great dark brown, nearly black body. Solid two finger's of ecru foam with great staying power.

The nose is roasty, brown sugar-y sweet and has some coffee. Also notice cocoa powder, general yeasty spiciness and some anise.

The palate strikes again with the roasty malt and some smokey char. The cocoa powder is buried. Although, some dark fruits do make an appearance as the beer warms.

Big and creamy feel to this one. I like it! The roast naturally makes it a bit dry, and that is fine with me.

This is an irish dry stout with some belgian flair. The nose presents roasty, sweet notes; the palate is more roasty and smokey than sweet. Still a fun beer to have had.
