33cl brown glass bottle into Trappistenbier goblet in Antwerp, Belgium. Reviewed live.

A: One finger head of soft delicate cream and wonderful thickness. Bad retention for the style and ABV. A solid nontransparent dark black colour. Appealing to me, but then this is me favourite style.

Sm: Vanilla, cream, chocolate, toffee, and maybe some musty amber hops. A moderate strength scent. Very well executed. Bravo.

T: Chocolate, vanilla, cream, and roasted barley. Very short: only one act instead of three. Brief but welcome. Complex enough but poorly built and balanced.

Mf: Coarse and dry, as a stout should be, but not in the right places. It ought to be wet on the open and dry on the finish to encourage the next sip. A bit too coarse for its lack of flavours.

Dr: Low ABV, poorly balanced, and costly. Leave this on the shelf.

Bottle opened with a very loud pop like a gunshot, poured black with a half finger of head that did not go away, even after a half hour. Great head retention!

Smells dry and dark, taste is the same. Initially very high carbonation out of the bottle. Pretty low alcohol, and very drinkable.

A - Poured with a really nice lightly tan two fingers worth of foam, but dissipated very quickly with just a toadstool of cover left; deep , dark brown color

S - Light roastiness; dark fruits (plums); lightly sweet

T - Roasted qualities are there, but a bit light; some dark chocolate and plummy sweetness

M - Lightish, and would have like a richer body on it; very prickly carbonation

D - Not bad drinking at all; not the most representative of the style but a good and quaffable brew

Overall, a little different, but certainly nice.

Congratulations to the Trois Dames breweries! Finally, I could find some good beers in Switzerland so far! About this Black Stout, I can say that it's a very fair stout one. This should be, perhaps, a little bit stronger and darker. But again, it's quite good and pleasant anyway.
(Note: Its label reminds me one of the old Black Sabbath album covers which, by chance, made me feel comfortable about its content... :p)

330 ml bottle from Switzerland

Pours black with thick brownish head. Aroma is quite sweetish fruity with light hints of toasty grain.

Taste is roasted malt and licorice with bitter chocolate finish, slightly astringent. Mouthfeel is light-medium with more than moderate carbonation and mild alcohol warming.

Overall, decent, but not too enjoyable. It seems it lacks flavour and there is way too much carbonation.
