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.

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.

Pours very dark brown to black, one finger beige head, sticky.
Smells of dark roasted malts, caramel, coffee and forest nuts.
Surprisingly, there's a big tartness from beginning to end, vinegary, mixed with some lemon zest also, messing with the classic aromas, setting them in the back. Roasted dark malts, sure, with smokiness and mild caramel. Going to dark chocolate. Weak coffee (diluted), cocoa powder and a dry earthiness are classic to the stout recipe, but the weird sour cherries and low dark fruit (red grapes, plum) somehow don't fit. Spices are cinnamon, anise and hints of vanilla. Low hop presence, bitterness provided mostly by the roast.
Drinkable, sure, but too thin and crisp than expected.
Not really what i wanted, don't know for sure if it's "interesting" or just not well made.
