Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma has some dark fruit, chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt. I also get some dark fruit and a bit of coffee. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle shared with kermis @ Moeder Lambic. Pours dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate and instant coffee, but is hidden by CO2, it’s quite lively, after the head has collapsed, it’s more noticeable. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate and molasses.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brewed by Jandrain-Jandrenouille? That I expect very high quality stuff. And indeed this turned out great. Not extreme in any way but still full of chocolate, classic herbal yet very present hops, just enough supporting toffee sweetness. I wouldn’t leave this laying around but drink it with the hop presence, it really makes the beer. Very tasty and indeed as expected of high quality, very well developed. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 10.08.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich, dark malts, licorice, cocoa, chocolate, caramel, rubber, broth, dark sugar, vanilla. Taste is slightly dry and grassy, dark malts, grass, licorice powder, cocoa, green soap, hay. Medium bitterness, thin mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little boring when it comes to taste.
