Shared bottle at Nuetnigenough in Brussels.

Pours jet black, low, dense foam.

Smell is chocolatey with some coffee and vanilla.

Taste is smooth and full of roasted coffee, chocolate and some oaky vanilla.

Mouthfeel is medium, maybe a bit too thin.

Overall, a very good stout, maybe a bit on the thin side.

From the blue paper wrapped bottle in a snifter. This nice little BRIS pours a
deep opaque with a very nice head of light tan foam that settles to a thick ring,
frothy layer, and VERY nice sticky lacing. Nose of cocoa, earthy yeasty element,
licorice, coffee, and subtle char with sweet malts. Flavors follow the nose with
bitter cocoa and coffee that becomes obscured with dark licorice and earthy
yeasty tones that finish with subtle char with a touch of raisin. Nice mouth feel,
smooth, lightly oily, coating, mild carbonation, and a mild roasted malt and licorice
and cocoa aftertaste. Nice for the style and the origin of the country must be
considered for it's influence on brewing, yet this one needs more heft of coffee
and cocoa and less of the licorice...that said it is still a very fine brew and worthy
to try.

Cheers

Pours jet black with a small mocha coloured head, minimal lacing but great retention. Really nice balance of sweetness and bitterness with chocolate and coffee being the star players. Light on carbonation, smooth yet a bit sticky.

A very solid offering, not overly complex but I'd have it again anytime.

Splurged on my last night in Maastricht and had a 0.33l bottle of this for €7.60 at de Gouverneur.

Was a jet black, oily, opaque brew. Had a very thin beige head, mostly just rim-clinging foam, and with minimal lacing. Had a lovely aroma, with choco, roasty coffee and rich, dark fruit. Had a medium body and was quite smooth, though I wish it was more thick and chewy.

Tasted some semi-sweetness, with more roasty coffee and bitter, dark chocolate and espresso. Also found some dark fruit and a hint of licorice. Not as complex as I like a Russian Imperial, but still solid. Prosit!!

Pours pitch black, with a solid one finger foam that leaves some nice lacing. Smells sweet; there's vanilla, dark fruit and coffee as well as some bready/biscuit smell. Alcohol is present and wraps everything up nicely. Taste is dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and a touch of vanilla. There are some hops too in the mix, discreet but still there. Sweet, but not that much. It's slightly bitter and spicy. Surprisingly given the nice lasting head, carbonation is pretty light, with a medium body. It's a bit sticky, very smooth, very drinkable (more like a 7% or 8% ABV than an 11%).

Seems like this brewery has got stouts down; first Charbon, now this. I'll make sure to try as many of their beers as I can get my hands on.

660 ml bottle, best before end August 2018. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, Rooibos tea, dark fruit, coffee, and some smokiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some dark bread, molasses, and a bit of licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. The 11% ABV is well hidden. I thought this was a pretty good brew, the addition of the Rooibos worked well with the stout. Definitely worth picking up, I know I wouldn't mind trying it again in the future. $14.49 a bottle.
