dark black colour, giant dense creamy and slightly brown-tainted foam, deep and toasty aroma of black chocolate, notes of bread, raisins and cookies, also a touch of alcohol and licorice, oily and creamy mouthfeel, solid malt body, some bitterness before a powerful chocoltey, cookie aftertaste and warming alcohol notes - perfectly made and deeply enjoyable

A dark black appearance with a tan head. A chocolate and raisin aroma. The flavor was somewhat sweet and it hid the alcohol well. I catch some chocoalte, roasted malts, sour grapes, and cherry peels. Very good.

Mahogany with a awesome beige head that you could float a penny on.Dark fruit,currants,rum soaked bread all present in the aroma.I started to drink to cold and its really tasting like a dark belgian strong but as it warmed the roastiness is awakened from its cold induced slumber.Its a little overcarbonated and quite explosive on the tongue.Its got some burnt roastiness in the swallow.Definitely a sipper Well done De Dolle!!

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Appearance is pitch-black body with a giant tan head that keep coming close to overflowing. It took me quite a while to get the whole beer in the glass with the way the head was acting. Rings of lace were left around the glass as I consume this. Aroma was of sweet malt with a dash of alcohol over a roasted scent. The flavor was filled with chocolate malt with fruitiness to it of darker fruits. Alcohol was present as was a distinct licorice flavor. The taste ended of a roasty alcohol note that seemed to linger for a bit. Body was about medium and creamy with good drinkability. Good brew that I would definitely pick up again.

The aroma was smokey, slightly roasty w/ dark fermented fruit and alcohol esters. The flavor had smoke, raost, dark fruit, and an alcohol sweetness. The beer poured a dark brown color w/ purple hues; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was full and creamy.

Pours dark with a great brown head. Flaver has notes of liqourice an malty sweetness. Tasted more like a belgian ale, than a stout.

lamas (1368) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2005
11.2 oz. bottle. Hazy, thick dark-brown pour with HUGE effervescent dark-tan head. Roasty malts, chocolate, anise, plums, pears and alcohol in the nose. Carbonation is VERY high. Starts off with roasty, malty sweetness along with some hints of licorice and chocolate. Finishes with some bitterness and yeastiness. Pretty warming alcohol flavors throughout.
