The dark version of Boerke which was launched in 1998. Sweeter, somewhat spicey, with roasted and bitter nuances. Like the amber ale it is unfiltered, unpasteurised and bottle conditioned. The brewery utilises only natural products without any chemical additives.

Tayeth (539) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 27, 2014
Angenehm malziger Geruch mit Anklang von Sirup und dunklen Beeren. Der Geschmack ist etwas enttäuschend, aber solide mit etwas schokoladigem Abgang und leichtem Sirupgeschmack.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours an orange-copper body with a small fluffy white head and airy lace. The aroma has plenty of bread but also sweet raisins, perhaps some figs, yeast, cookies, and perfume. The flavour has some rye bread in addition to fruity hop bitterness and rich dark/toasty malts - caramel and such. Pretty good.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2006
Bottled. Aroma of roasted malts and light herbal. Dark brown color, beige head, good lace. Sourish start, roasted malts, light caramel, light herbal, sparkling and bitter - especially in the long lasting finish.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2006
Bottle Hazy, deep amber-brown body. Nice frothy, off-white big head. Aroma of hops (grass - flowers), malts (nuts), white wine, perfume, apples as in apple cider. Quite complex. Flavour is int he beginning lightly bitter, lighlty sweey. In the end moderately bitter, lightly sour. Has some of the fruitiness of a flemish sour ale. Good balance, but not extraordinary due to a somewhat flat mouthfeel.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Beautiful dark brown with a pronounced reddish glow - presumably filtered. Creamy, light brown head, which never completely vanishes but remains afloat on top of the beer. Lightly tart and metallic nose. Dry, lightly roasted malt, with pronounced tart undertones and a dry, lightly bitter finish. Vinous with a rather light body. Reminds me of the old style I believe is called "Vlaams bruin". Unusual but very delicate. 080605

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2005
Dark chocolate brown with a big, persistent head which reminds of whipped cream. Rotten cherry and heavy perfume in the aroma, some tea leaves also, with just a touch of vinegar. Cocoa flavour with raisins and/or fruit jam; a bit earthy, too. Like warm chocolate drink on the tongue.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - NOV 7, 2004
Chocolately toffee aromas with some sour vinegar - like the nose! Murky dark brown color and a low lathery head. Pale taosted malt body with some cocoa. Metallic end with a drying effect. Medium body and an OK balance, though a little odd and not so convincing overall.

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2004
Yeasty aroma and flavor with some orange. Just a bit sweet, even syrupy. Spices, says the label, but I can only find some curacao. Disappointing.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Nice amber brown coor. Soft carbonation. Malt nose, nutty and piney too. Kind of thin body. Malty taste, torfy too. Fizzy, earhty, bitter with a hoppy copper finish.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - APR 21, 2004
Brown cloured with a reddish shine. Rather malty and fruity. Dry finish. Very good for being only 5.5%ABV.
