COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian black ale reminds the drinker of the chocolate side of dark malts, leaving behind bitter astringency.

Not very good beer. But sounds good. Good descriptions but not that good of a beer. Flavors are Belgian like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster at Brugge. Looks good for the style; a dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells of Belgian yeast, dark malt, and bitter chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Flight on tap at the brewpub (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a rich blackish brown pour, mellow haze, with some brownish ruby edges and bottom. A frothy light brown head sits atop, firmly sized with good lacing, sticks around as a thick film. Aromas are roasty malts, chestnuts, and cocoa. Touches of dark fruit, toffee, and dark chocolate dance in. Mellow coffee roast, raisin, and touches of plum. More roast and cocoa as it warms, coffee, biscuity and sweet malts with touches of Belgian yeast influence. Initial is smooth and medium bodied, envelopes the palate with nutty malts, toffee, and roast. Rich dark chocolate gives dryness, with mellow toffee, touches of creamy sweetness hit the palate with touches of dryness, heat, and mellow earthy dry hops into the backend. A distinct ABV heat hits midway through, the malts do their best to distract. Dry and roast, richer sweet and mellow sticky elements offer some life as the backend really tries to dry out, roasty and earthy cocoa, firm hops, ABV related heat. Touches of Belgian yeast give a touch of mellow spice, firm dark fruit influence. Solid darker Belgian, if a bit big for my palate int he ABV department. A touch hot at times. Some kisses of anise.

A truly unique beer, Black Belgian with a gentle but powerful head of raisins and yeasty alcohol. Pretty body, almost opaque black but a dark burgundy shines through the light. Taste if raisins, prunes, dates...all those dried fruits. Get this, it’s rare, find it.

Pours black but not completely opaque with a slight tan head. Nose involves some chocolate, roasted notes, a little anise, some bubblegum, banana and spice. Taste is a balanced bittersweet. Palate is fuller, somewhat oily and slick, with a bitter roasted finish. This was a really nice beer, pretty easy to drink, and good for pairings. Nice.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and sour yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectation where met.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of rich malts and a hint of roasted malt. Also dark fruits. Flavor of dark fruits, Belgian yeast, with a light roast finish. Very dark Belgian ale with a hint of roastiness, booze. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

On tap at Brugge Brasserie last weekend. Served in a tulip. Poured near black with a good off-white/light tan head and some good lacing. The nice brought a bit of yeast plus a large amount of roasted malt. The flavor was mostly all roast with some light dark-fruit character. Interesting, but not all that enjoyable. There was some creaminess to the feel, though mostly dry roast. Overall, this was far too dominated by bitter roasted malt.
