Suttree (5225) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Black, as one might expect, with a big but quickly dissipating head. Roasted almond aroma. Nicely crisp, with a note of coffee, burnt toast and red wine. Not bad.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Deep brown body with a thick, cocoa colored head. The nose is quite interesting with notes of overripe fruit, bittersweet chocolate, licorice, light smoke, burnt toast, molasses, some faint esters and a hint of cardamon. The body is full and robust with elegant carbonation and a nice velvety feel on the tongue. The flavors are nice with a tasty melding of smoke, burnt toast, dark fruits and licorice. Itís probably not my favorite beer from Brugge but itís still tasty and damn unique. The smoke and deep roasted element in a Belgian. Whodda thunk it? Worth trying, without a doubt. Is it me, or are these beers just getting better and better?

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Reminded me of Bellís Hell Hath... On tap, poured in a snifter. A medium tan soft creamy head. Aroma of yeast, some chocolate, and dark fruit. Taste of dark bread, choclate, spices with some sweetness.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2007
On tap @ the brew pub: Poured a very dark brown with an off white head. Aroma, molasses caramel, yeast. Flavor, molasses more molasses, and some black strap molasses, spices and yeast. I thought they over did it a bit with this one.

Had on tap at Brugge in Broad Ripple. Pours pretty much black, nice sweet alcohol nose, and a chewy, sweet, yeasty flavor. A good brewpub offering!

Pours black with a fully receding tan head. Aroma is phenolic yeast, peppers and ethanol. Taste has notes of caramel, light chocolate (de-bittered), spicy and peppery, thin red wine, and well-attenuated. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with light to medium carbonation.
