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.

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.

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

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.

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

Appearance: Black. Tan head with a little staying power and a good amount of lacing.

Smell: Chocolate, Caramel, hints of berry jam.

Taste: Roasted up front. Hints of jam in the middle. Nutty finish.

Mouthfeel. Thin. Carbonated.

Overall. A nice stout. Middle of the road bold and mellowed significantly as it sat in the glass.
