I have had this a couple of times but oddly enough I have never gotten down to reviewing this beauty // 33 cl. bottle @ ‘t Waagstuk // (a) dark brown with a lighter tanned head // (s) darker malts, nuts, mocha, lighter touch dark fruits, chocolate // (t) bitter mocha, cocoa, chocolate, lightly bitter half-dried dark fruits, berries, nuts, chocolate, hints of dark bread, Porto in finish, lightly vinous, hints of jus in the beginning, really lovely // (b) nice smooth, substantial body // one of the better dark Belgian ales in my opinion

bierkoning (11943) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown color. Malt, dark chocolate, caramel and cinnamon in the aroma. malty sweet flavor with caramel and cardemom. A bit too sweet maybe. But not a bad beer at all.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2012
33cl from Willems & Zoon. BB Dec. 2013. Brune foncée, col épais beige crémeux. Arôme est malté laissant percé un bouquet grillé, poudre cacao et un profile notable de levure. En bouche, malt caramel, grillé présentant une pointe café, choco amer, le tout gardant plus un profile d’un stout belge. En retrait je note une pointe de malt fumé et ce côté vieux grains/sec. L’amertume tout comme le houblon reste modérée et très discrète.

Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 66 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish brown with a small white head – not much lacing (a little sediment floating around). Aroma is malty, yeasty, sugary, fruity, slightly funky. Taste is much of the same. ABV is incredibly well hidden.

MaartenRF10 (1835) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2012 re-rate: seems like a completely different beer today. More bitterness, roasted malts, some coffee, hardly anything like port, raisins our vanilla. Murky brown, large beige head. Lovely port-like smell! Taste is port, overripe fruit, raisins, figs, some wood, vanilla, earth, dry sour wine. Full body, good carbonation. Wonderful beer!!!

TEJA (2077) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle from Björn, thanks. Bottle comes in a brown bag, perfect for american winos and litle strange. Thin grey lace. Brown color. There is much raw tobaco in the aroma and also some in the taste. There is also sweet caramell and a god bitterness in the taste.
