We popped open this big bottle of fun in the cul-de-sac the other day as a taster. My neighbor Dave had bought this at Malt & Vine a few weeks back and figured it was time. We poured a bit in about 4 different mugs and the tasting began.
Buffalo Belgian Stout (translated version) ended up being the life of the party with everyone one really enjoying it. There were some tastes that folks weren’t used to and couldn’t put a finger on, but I think it was a good amount of malt that made this such a mildly pleasant stout. The Belgian yeast was super-mild, barely leaving a hint, which made this very potable for those that aren’t used to it. You could definitely taste the roasted malts that they are using to emulate the burning taste that originally gave this beer its flavor. A solid head, somewhat transparent dark brown color, good smell and solid taste make this a high recommendation on the Belgian Stout list.
