2.82/5  rDev -14.3%

A - Dark brown pour and changes to black when it accumulates in the glass, nice three fingered
in the beginning but dies down to a soapy, tan colored lacing ring.

S - Dark chocolate aroma with a hint of cocoa.

T - Some dark chocolate, dark fruit, a small amount of smokiness, and light roasted cocoa.

M - Light bodied and very thin for a stout, medium carbonation on the tongue.

O - Too thin for a stout, needs to be more robust in both body and flavor -= not much going.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Black color with red highlights and a thick caramel head with a short retention but keeping a constant plate.
Nice aroma with lots of licorice, roasted malts, dark fruits, some coffee and cocoa just after some time.
Flavor with very natural coffee notes, spices, dark fruits, caramels, ashes, earth, tobacco and pears. Cocoa appears after warming up. Very dry aftertaste with a long roasted note. Slightly tart with a distant balsamic vinegar.
Light to medium body with good carbonation, slightly effervescent.
Quite unique stout with a good balance between roasted- ashy, tart, fruity and spicy notes. In my opinion this is underestimated once flavors are not the usual easy ones for Stout. Interesting that it sure has Dupont genes there.

3.35/5  rDev +1.8%

Appearance: The beer pours like a Belgian, with a huge, rocky head rather than the traditional English bubble show; the translucent brown color is much lighter than expected; shards of lacing are left behind

Smell: Burnt and ashy, with just a hint of chocolate and a vague tartness

Taste: Starts out with a powdered chocolate flavor with tart dark fruit building in the middle; quite phenolic, after the swallow with a bit of a skunky flavor

Mouthfeel: Belgian stout mouthfeel, with a medium body and high carbonation

Overall: Rather disappointing for a Belgian stout and the green bottle doesn't help matters

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Massively carbonated with a tightly knit khaki colored head. Dark brown in color and only a bit of light gets through. Brussels lacing. This beer is virtually odorless,but with a lot of effort I got a bit of dark malt. The flavor is a bit on the sweet dark malty side. Perhaps a bit of powdered cocoa in the mix. The mouth is creamy and dry.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/27/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Slight amount of earthy roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, dark bread, raisin, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Belgian stout. Good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A unique and pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3.59/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours pitch black with a big, light tan, quickly dropping head, leaving nice lacing.

Aroma: coffee and roasted malts with some fruit-like, fresh aroma in the back and perhaps some forest notes. Subtle, yet very pleasant.

Taste: a bit sour, malty. There's a lot of roastiness and hint of coffee. Mildly bitter. Basically a typical stout with nothing much going on.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation. Would be better with softer carbonation.

Overall: Highly drinkable, but I wouldn't drink more than one bottle. it's a typical stout. It could be more bitter and less carbonated. Good, but not great.
