lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2006
Very deep brown almost black colour. The beer has no head at all. Aroma is sweet fruitish with hints of coffee and burned malts. It also has a minty freshness and a touch of grape-sugar about it. Taste is jentle and smooth. It ha a big boost of alcohol that brings warmth and body to this fruity stout. The candi sugar is very present in the afthertaste. A good one but to me it laks a bit of bitterness (hops and burned stuff) Cheers to you Podge ! I gonna re-try this one for sure, hopig the appearance will be more attactive.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2006
(Bottled) Hazy, very dark reddish brown color with a small but lasting and lacy head. A very nice and complex aroma of roasted malt, salty licorice and dried fruit. A hint of alcohol, too. Sweetish, syrupy, burned-malty, perfumy flavor with a moderately bitter licorice finish. Close to full-bodied, syrupy palate with slightly foamy carbonation. Could be fuller in body and with less color malt and sugar, but overall an interesting and reasonably balanced not-so-bitter impy.

anders37 (16691) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown colour with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of licourice and chocolate. Sweet malty flavor with some hints of molasses, licourice and chocolate. Long sweet roasted aftertaste.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2006
Bottled. Strong sweetened coffee aroma with cherries and blackberries. Black color, light brown fine head leaving really beautiful lace. Sweet, chocolat, very fruity (mainly blackberries), soft bitterness. Warming and even alcoholic long lasting finish. No brutal roasted coffee bitterness and way more fruity than the American brewers would do I agree with Joris. But what a beautiful non-Belgian beer from Belgium this is. Yummy!

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Bottle. Nearly opaque dark brown. Nose is licorice, dark fruit notes, roasted malt, and a hint of molasses. Taste is strong molasses, raisins, licorice, figs, prunes, and dark chocolate. Perhaps a bit of brown sugar as well. Body is medium-full and smooth with a fine carbonation feel about it. Finishes sweet with lots of chocolate notes, dark fruits, molasses, and roasted malts. Nice beer and one of the surprises at ZBF ’06!

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2006
Bottled at ZBF 2006, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium
Black body. Beautiful, caramelish head with an excellent lace. Strong aroma of mild coffee, honey and hints of cask wood. Moderately sweet initial flavour, moderately bitter finish. Medium to fully bodied. Soft carbonation. The flavour is dominated by coffee. At this moment at ZBF, I thought I needed a cup of coffeen but after this one, that wasn’t necessary anymore.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2006
Bottled. Thanks to chris_o for picking this up at Chelmsford BF last year. A viscous black beer with a tiny puddle of tan coloured head. The aroma has a lactic quality together with licquorice and soy and roasted barley. The taste has noticeable alcohol strength together with bitter coffee and loads of maltiness. Again some lactose coming through. A very tasty and quite chewy stout

PIVOMAN (15) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2005
THIS BEER IS A REAL STOUT LIKE IT HAS TO BE. THE BURNED COFFEE TASTE WHICH IS VERY STRONG MAKES THE BEER WORTH TRYING.

rauchbier (3607) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle conditioned, ZBF 2005. Jet black, tobacco brown head and gentle condition. Big sweet liquorice and coffee aromas, full bodied, chewy and sweet in the mouth with some roast barley bitterness and more liquorice. Lingering roasted bitterness with hints of coffee and a gentle sweetness in the finish.
