A: BLACK, can't see any hues through it. Nice thick head that is off white and then settles to a thin film and a nice rim around the glass.

S: Coffee, chocolate, black cherries, some sour notes.

T: Some sourness present, strong coffee in the back of the pallet, smoky chocolate, cherries again.

M: Well carbonated for a "belgian stout". Medium-full body.

O: I just love the flavours of this beer. Some belgian notes are well present.

(Am finally getting around to posting my notes taken on the spot at a winter-beer festival in Brussels last December. The festival billed as the debut of the beer; perhaps it had more than one. And what was presented might have been more of a preview, as I gathered from later speaking with someone at Dupont, possibly it was not the final recipe for the commercial run. When I find it again in good tasting environment, I'll re-review. For what it's worth, here goes:) Poured from the keg perfectly black with just a ring of ivory foam. Aroma of coffee, pepper, some herbal spice like coriander, a toasty or caramelized bread note. Surprisingly little malt sweetness, rather burnt-tasting, rather un-Belgian but very welcome. Some coriander or grain of paradise in there, too, and hops sneaks in at the end. Slight astringency, definitely less chewy than the standard Belgian take on stout -- again, not necessarily a bad thing, and all the more quaffable for it.

Pours jet black with a light tan head. In the aroma, a light roast, a small caramel and coffee presence. In the taste, roasty, coffee to caramel like, with a toffee like sweetness. Quite smooth and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, note of coffee in the aftertaste. Nice coffee notes and sweetness of caramel and toffee, pleasant and nice to drink.

Nose-filling aroma has firm tones of charred wood and yeast with a hint of licorice. It pours a deep opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head. Smoky, malty flavor has tones of molasses, caramel and roast coffee with a licorice hint. Texture is a teensy on the thin side but strongly tingly. Overall, if not the best porter available, a worthy beer.
