Poured into a Duvel tulip. The liquid is totally black, and the pour kicks up a nice oatmeal-colored head that fades fairly quickly to a solid cap and leaves a beautiful amount of lace.

Aroma is nice and stouty. Nice malts, with bittersweet chocolate, hints of espresso, and a nice milkiness. Has some really pleasant desserty aromas, but doesn't smell too sweet.

Flavor follows up on the aromas, with some really nice and intense chocolate and coffee flavors, and a very surprising, but welcome bitterness. It's bitter throughout the entire palate, even though there are some very sweet-leaning flavors that dominate. Finish is pretty dry, and the aftertaste is kind of like coffee grounds.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied for the style, with a lot of very prickly carbonation.

Overall, this is very good dessert beer that is almost overwhelmingly bitter. If you like chewing spent coffee grounds, this is the beer for you! And I mean that in the best way possible...

3.75/5  rDev +1.1%

Appearance – Good dark colour it is as dark as a night in Kolkata’s famous hole with decent head. The head was not long lasting and only mild lacing was left in the glass.

Smell – Quite a heavy smell of liquorice and dark coco hits you with this one and there is a hint of a grain store so the barley smell is apparent.

Taste – Follow the smell very closely. There and there is a definite taste of roasted grains which lingers strongly on the tongue. Bitter to the taste this one needs to be gulped like a Guinness to get the proper flavour.

Mouthfeel – A little towards the thin side this beer had great linger though and a bitter acerbic kick

Overall – This one won a silver star in 2011.... It has such a strong flavour it is very hard to taste the alcohol and the flavour seems to develop with each taste. A good little number and very surprising to me as I was not aware that the Dutch went in for Stout or that they were so accomplished in this style.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with an inch of churned, beige foam.

Smell: Dark malty accents smelling of carob, light chocolate, blackened toast, scorched cream and licorice.

Taste: Toasty, roasty in the fore with some slight carob, less-than-sweet chocolate and very minor licorice. Minimal dark fruitiness. A chary bitterness creeps in at the midpoint. Drying with a persistent dark maltiness which slowly lingers on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel overall.

Overall: While it won't knock your socks off with a myriad of complexities, it's amply flavorful and an ease to drink at 5.5% ABV.

Best by September 2014.

Served in a Sam Smith imperial pint.

A - Mostly black with deep ruby edges and small off white cap that left OK lacing.

S - Dark spfruit and mild roast. A really nice balance between the two. I'm wishing I'm poured in a more aroma flattering glass.

T - Roast character takes the front seat and some dark fruit notes round it off, just a hint of cocoa powder as well.

M - drying dissipating finish.

O - A solid bear, great transition for the Guiness drinker. Only knocked for the diacetly and mediocre head retention.

From bottle.
Uncapping releases a pronounced dark chocolate aroma followed by expresso and dark roasted grains. The sweet and inviting aroma has some burnt toast too, but limitd burnt grains in the flavor. Rcih flavor with near full body and near medium carbonation. Lingering flavor of dark roasted grains, black coffee and a hint of dark chocolate.

O: recommended.

Yes, it sounds pretentious but I'm drinking this from a goblet-flute glass.

The beer pours out pitch black and there's a nice thick head that fades slowly.

Nose is subtle chocolate with a whiff of roasted light coffee. It's a very good balance between the two. I'm looking at the bottle as I write this and I've decided to name the logo of the man with the hammer Bart Jopenkerk, of the Clan Jopenkerk.

Bart Jopenkerk feels that there's a thick, milky velvet mouthfeel to this stout. It tastes true to its scent: a light chocolate coffee with roasted elements. Disclaimer: I'm partial to stouts so I may be biased but this beer is good. I like it and so does Bart Jopenkerk.

Bottle drunk at In De Wildeman in Amsterdam.

Again big pillowy head fades semi slowly with tons of lacing, very dark beer with some light sneaking through.

Nose nice dark malts, cocoa powder, light roast and faint roasted coffee, just bordering over roasted char but not quite there, which also brings a salty soy sauce character, layers of dark malts, besides the cocoa also black malt and roast, etc.

Taste lots of choc, dark choc, cocoa powder, nice melting Swiss choc, bitter roast and almost soy sauce bitterness, light caramel and toffee too, quite dry and bitter overall. Touch of a metallic twinge and very light acrid. A nice bitter earthy like hop comes through as well. Light oats maybe, chewy and bitter profile lingering on the finish, fairly dry but sticky, little coffee coming through on the finish with the roast and plenty of dark malt flavors lingering. Long lingering Belgian choc flavor.

Mouth is fuller bod, decent carb. Light warming booze.
