Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

sudomorph (617) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a near black with a one finger, tan head that laces. Aroma is a touch sweet with nice roasted malts, a touch of dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Taste is a solid bitter with some nice dark fruits, sweet candy sugar, dark chocolate, coffee, slight fruit, and an almost espresso bitter finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Pretty clean but with a creamy texture. Overall an interesting brew. Smooth flavours with a nice mouth feel.

Aromas of fig, chocolate, coffee, creme brulee, alcohol. Pours dark brown with light brown head. Aroma reflects in taste but a little too dry for me. That’s what u get when u use Belgian yeast. But like description said it’s amazing with any sort of dessert. Enjoy

Oldmanriver (53) - Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Rich malt aroma. Starts dry, becoming more complex and silky with malt, caramel, fig, nice nobel type bittering hop character to complement maltiness along with slight smokiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VictorSA (169) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Sort med flott brunt skum. Kompleks aroma, som starter i det fruktige med fiken og nektarin. Videre kommer dypere toner av kakao og mørkbrent kaffe, med rosiner, plommer og noe nøtter. Også noe krydret humlepreg og røkt eik kommer frem. Silkemyk i munnen, med lett bitterhet og sødme. God fylde og lengde. Fantastisk øl! (Jomfruland, 18.07.14)

Bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. Aroma is dark coffee, dark chocolate, a touch of booze. Flavor is all that with oatmeal and bitter dark roast on the finish.
