Big antique white frothy head, that sticks long. Dark brown, nearly black color. Malt, orse blanket nose, also clay. Light alcohol taste, slightly tabocco, meidum lasting dark chocolate taste. Nice and somehow unusual for a Stout - nice hoppy intervalls.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Dark brown/black color with a nice off-white head & small lacing. Nose of milk chocolate, liquid smoke, coconut, light alcohol. Tastes hot & strong, lots of chocolate & roast, light coffee. Finishes salty with lots of alcohol. A good foreign stout but a bit strong on the alcohol department. Lots of aging potential! Cherry?!

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2004
Final Four of ’04. 330ml bottle from Beer Temple in Brussels. Poured in to a Duvel glass. Pours very dark with red/orange tinge and a large cappuccino head that soon dissapears in to practically nothing. Fairly clear (no yeast yet). Aroma is strong of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is balanced between sweet malt and bitter chocolate with coffee and roasty character. Dry and salty finish. (3.6) With the yeast poured in towards the bottom this is improved, becoming a lovely sweet yeasty treat - overall 3.8

Dark beer with reddish glints when held up to the light. Huge, tan rocky foam for a head. Grainy chocolate nose with an acidic fruitiness to it. Delicious combination of bitter chocolate with some coffee and an almost cherry fruitiness with a salty finish. Different from most US stouts and very enjoyable.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Solid black with a big thick, frothy loose tan head. Tart aroma with some coffee and cardboard notes. Nice body, clean roasty flavor. Quick, somewhat sour finish with little hop presence. Some plum, chocolate and chalkiness in the flavor. The alcohol is very well hidden. Alot of other flavors emerge as the ale warms.

Hot damn! I’ve been waiting for something new out of these guys. This tastes like an Imperial Stout, with a ton of fruity and roasty flavors. Tastes strong, but not too bitter. Very nicely done.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2004
The huge brown head on this took awhile to settle down to 1/4 inch on top of a brown-ish black/red body. Aroma is sweet chocolate covered fruits. Intense flavors of chocolate toffee coffee, plums, raisins, anise, roastyness. I sipped at this one for a long time - the flavors are almost overwhelming!

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Dark and murky with a lovely fluffly tan head. Aroma is perfectly fruity. Chocolately with a touch of soap. Taste and texture are fabulous. Very lively. Starts out fruity with the slightest hint of sweet and chocolate. Becomes totally roasted goodness and then completely dries out in the finish with lingering mild hops. The aftertaste is of rummy, roasted dried fruit and nuts. This is wonderul stuff! Belgian nose and body with a stout flavor and characteristics. Thanks to my Secret Santa Kinz for this baby.

damn tasty brew.I see some low ratings but that’s what this site is for.Beautifu; deep dark cherry mohagany brew with a layer of creamy tan head.Nose has that dark fruit ester typical of a fine Belgian Brew,but also dark choc. and some fresh roasted coffee.Geeezzz,this is good.I can almost get a smokey taste but maybe it the bland of roasted malts and choco-fruitiness.Thick and rich flavor.

This beer was not as good as I thought it would be. The beer poured a dark brown almost black with a huuuuge white head. The taste was malty, with some smokiness in the flavor. Not recommended.
