matt7215 (2109) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
600ml bottle from the best of beaus 4 pack. deep brown tan head. decent dark belgian nose. flavour has way to much roast and it clashes with the yeast. finish is bitter and astringent. this whole pack was really dissapointing.

Spab (2126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2012
600 ml bottle from LCBO (from Best of Beau’s pack). Pours a very dark brown with creamy, lasting brown head. Aroma is quite roasty with coffee, cocoa, anise and fruit. Flavour is also quite roasty with burnt coffee, dark chocolate, licorice and fruity esters. Bit of spiciness in the finish. Quite enjoyable.

sseb69 (1404) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
Bouteille 600 ml. 8%. Couleur brune très très foncée, presque noire, mousse brune. Arôme de café torréfié, malt et un peu de levures. En bouche, assez ronde, malt, alcool, levures, espresso. Amertume en finale. Bonne mais manque un peu de balance pour être exeptionnelle.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2012
from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - cloudy dark brown beer with a rubish hue; pretty nice foam left; nice lacework; deep aroma of cold coffee, cocoa and vanilla, roasted and with notes of hazelnut; full-bodied and creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation; some sweetness and a respectable bitterness, very long chocolatey and nutty finish with light notes of warming alcohol - superb

swiseman (409) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 3, 2011
A nice, big beer. lots of malt, chocolate and nuts. However, the lack of balance disguises some of the more subtle flavors. Seemed to have a light moutfeel considering the style, but this works for it. definitely worth trying.

Pretty solid. Malty aroma, good head and good depth to this beer. Would enjoy again.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Draft. Pours a dark bruin body with a tan off white head with okay head retention. Malty body with chocolate malt tones. Bitter with burnt malt tones and a light sweetness seems like licorice lice in nature. Caramel and a banana like fruit ester tone. Eh pretty average at best.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Mondiale 2010. Pours a clear deep brown with a thin head. Aroma is off earthy leather burnt toast, some harsh maple syrup, spicy phenolics, pepper, and some dull fruity esters and light roasted malts- nuts and chocolate. Flavor is burnt nuts and fruit, phenolic, roast, ash, dust, cracker, toffee, molasses, and a leathery earthy almost dog hair dirtiness, medicinal and tobacco in the end. Meh.

TheJester (1727) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
Sampled from a bottle (I think) at Mondial de la bière. It’s dark brown with ruby highlights and no head. The aroma has lotsa roast, Belgian yeast (?), nuts, and maraschino cherries. The flavour is quite similar, dominated by the roast, but with yeast and chocolate in there as well. Medium to full body, and medium to low carbonation. I wish their stuff was more widely available.
