The Black is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and refermented in the bottle with the methode champenoise to make this beer truly unique.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Sampled at Bockyhorsey’s Bocky Bash on 7-5-08. Dark brown pour with a ring of foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt, with some chocolate and caramel sweetness. Flavor is all of that, with a sour fruitiness hiding in the background. A little lighter than I was expecting in the flavor and on the palate, but really a great brew.

Bottle tasted at the 7/5/08 Bock Bash locals tasting. Pours a clear dark brown with bubbly tan head. Nose is coffee, cocoa and bakers chocolate. Taste is coffee, mild chocolate, some hops and a bit of funky sourness in the finish. Light to medium mouth feel.

What a fine ale. Had this on tap and I was so pleased with the balence of this beer. It was strong but not overpowering. Had a large tan head that lasted through the session. flavour of malts and berries.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Dark brown/black color with a fully foaming and long lasting head of foam. Intricate nose showcases notes of cocoa and roast, as well as dark fruit notes of syrah grapes and blackberries. Flavor has nice balance, but is perhaps a bit sweet. Similar notes as in the aroma, lots of sweet dark red fruit notes. Could have more dark malt notes to improve it. Overall, it’s a well made ale.

jeffe (3) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008 does not count
Reminds me of a roasty-tasting dubbel like Maredsous 8 but more so. Fruitiness of the yeast seems to outdo the roastiness, which is more present in the finish. Vanilla.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2008
From a 750 ml bottle. Perfectly black body with a persistent and stick to the glass dark tan head. The aroma was rich with some milk chocoalte and a little bit of chicory. There is also some roasted peanut. The taste has some light milk chocolate mixed with almonds. There is also a little bit of espresso, but it is faint and in the finish. Nicely done and good example of what I expect from this style.

(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, light sourness, smoke, and coffee. Flavor of roasted malt, Belgian yeast, nuts, chocolate, and coffee with a bitter finish.
