JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, - JUL 30, 2012
Thick beige head, very even over deep burgundy to brown, clear beer. Very perfumey nose, praliné chocolate, coloured but not-bitter malts; pastry, noisette, also wild mushrooms. Bitter/roasted with a sweet, perfumey underbuild. Again nutty, confiserie chocolates. Point of bitter chocolate retronasal. Warming up, the flavour also gets a stamp as from wild mushrooms ( trompettes de la mort). Overcarbonated, fizzy MF. Quite slick, rather well-bodied. Can’t get the oak. Got some very perfumey, nearly forced flavours instead.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2014
Brune foncée un rien rougeâtre, effervescence légère de visu, trop pétillante au palais, col beige très fin. Malts foncés toastés, un peu de moka, un peu plus de fruits noirs, une note de vanille. Vraiment pas mal!

Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent.
Pours light hazy dark chestnut with a large, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of raisin, plums, blackberries, mild chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine light and quite dry mouthfeel. Flavour has light dusty malts, a tad of liqourice, raisins, plums, red apple and soft oaky dryness. A bit mild in the finish.
