JoeinDahlem (1396) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2015
Not so much "noir" as ruddy brown, balancing mild measures of fruity, tangy, roasty and spicy, only faintly bitter, but none of it saying anything in particular and never adding up to being anything more than bland for its hefty strength. Technically clean, which was not always the case.

corkyrory66 (1013) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2015
Bière double de 8 % abv, non filtrée, refermentée. Couleur brun moyen, roux en transparence, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes par dizaines, pas très vives. Mousse beige moyen, bien crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt torréfié, candi, pointe de baies noires, câpres. 1ère bouche douce à soyeuse, à l’entrée originale sur malt et une épice muscadée. Arrière-bouche assez pleine, maltée, avec une légère pointe d’anis. 2ème plus quelconque en saveur, mais texture correcte. Arrière-bouche sur malt, pointe de muscade, bois de noisetier. 3ème qui ne vaut que par sa texture. Arrière-bouche assez plate, avec un peu de candi. Longueur sans aucun envol, juste agréable sans plus. Jambes fines, bien groupées. Levure douce, mais de faible caractère, petite ligne. Alcool qui ne fait pas son niveau, il aide peu aux saveurs. Finale sans rien de neuf à la fontaine… CONCLUSION : un vieux dicton disait « il ne faut jamais dire : fontaine, je ne boirai pas de ton eau ... ». Pour ma part, je suis venu, j’ai bu, je ne suis pas convaincu ...

kraddel (4987) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
No gusher, unlike the name does sound like.. Pours dark, clear brown. Big white head. Smell is weak. If anything, metallic. Taste is bitter, roasted coffee with a sweet, toffee undertone. Overcarbonated and low MF ( what else, its Belgian... ) I don’t hate this beer as much as others appear to do .

tomekk1978 (1073) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, rubinowa, w miarę dolewania coraz bardziej zmętniona. Piana koloru ecru, dość obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, otrzymująca się. [5/5] Aromat: ciemne słody, ciemne owoce, czekolada, melanoidyny oraz nuta alkoholowa. Smak: lekko kwaskowy na początku, dość pełny, słodowy, następnie nieco słodki. Posmaki owoców, rodzynek, miodu, odrobinę czekolady, spieczonego ciasta i zdecydowanie alkoholowa końcówka.

Idiosynkrasie (5333) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, darkest copper colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweetish, sugary, dark malty aroma, hints of rock sugar, yeasty overtones. Taste is sweet, sugary, dark malty, minimally roasty dark malty; slightly alcoholic finish, lively carbonation. Doesn’t fit, neither in appearance nor taste, my understanding of Schwarzbier; apart from ’style critique’ not really a good beer in general.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2013
Brune rougeâtre claire, effervescence moyenne mais un rien trop gazeuse, col beige clair fin. Malt caramel léger et... c’est tout! Un peu sèche au palais. Fade et sans intérêt!

erickok (4468) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2013
Medium brown body, Soapy tan head. Light roasted malts, smokey hint, raisins. Very much malt forward and quite nice really. Light sweet, funky hint. Interesting brew, better than expected. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)
