75 cl. bottle sampled @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2013 as “Bellevaux Black Cuvée Spéciale”. Apparently this beer is an attempt of recreating a beer called “Old Peculiar” that the brewers tried in 1978 in Yorkshire. Interesting. Blackish dark brown with a tanned head. Nose is full of sweet liquorish, touch iron, toffee, roasted malts. Taste carries touch iron upfront, pretty sweet with lots of liquorish, bitter herbs, caramel, touch herbal in the back, roasted chocolate. Thicker body, not bad, pretty interesting stuff here.

Erzengel (5528) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2013
Rating from 2010.
Malzig-dunkler Antrunk, leicht säuerlich. Der Hauptteil ist angenehm dunkel-malzig, angenehm trocken-herb. Der Nachgeschmack hält sich lange auf der Zunge, dunkle Röstmalztone, sehr angenehm trocken-herb abgestimmt.
--> sehr leckres Schwarzbier!! --> 13/13/1

EddyBeer1 (1045) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2013
Effectivement noire, pétillance légère, col nuageux bien beige. Malts moyennement torréfiés et rôtis, amertume réglissée, un peu trop aqueuse, des fruits foncés se font sentir, un rien sèche.

Dark brown bodied, stable beige head. Delicate stout aromas, cacao and dry roasted, Belgian yeast. Straightforward yet tasty. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of licorice, roasted malt and dark fruit. The flavor is similar, with some light smoke, roasted malt and grass. Very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Gerbeer (2360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours black with light head. Aromas of dark malts and watery ash. Flat. Flavors are similar. Not very impressive. More similar to a lighter black IPA.
