Bottle. Poured black with a abundant tan head that began to dissapate after pour; left a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, and butterscotch. Flavor of chotolate and some coffee notes. A bit more carbonation than I would have preferred but it could be the style.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Opaque black in color with red highlights and a fat bubbled, brown head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol-infused licorice, milk, and overripe bananas. Flavor has big charcoal note with sweetness and alcohol present..though not much else. Overly carbonated that is distracting from the palate. Best to pour this into a LARGE glass to de-gas it before enjoying.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 30, 2008
Black with the peculiar huge Dolle’s head. Very strong aromas. The typical slight acidity that characterize brews from that brewery. Spicey. Chocolatey. Coffee. Luscious.

Aroma is more like Saison, the taste seems to be bit on the plane side and bit dry.

Zakoon (483) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
330ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark dried fruits and some liquorice. Flavour is sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation. Finish is plain and a bit boring.

LearninBeer (480) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2006
The aroma was very interesting, smelled toffee, honey and a hint of coriander (or something like it). The appearance was frothy and creamy with a light brown head. The lacing was very good and the head was mostly diminishing. The body was cloudy and the hue was Black. The initial flavor was sweet and the finish was sweet and bitter and long. The body was medium, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was soft.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Pours black with tan head. Nutty aroma with heavy yeast notes, chocolate, lactose, and some coffee. Lots of candied sugar in the flavor makes this an extremely sweet stout. Licorice, dark chocolate, dark fruits, vinous notes, and coffee also apparent. Flavor is also sour, which makes this stout extremely unique, though not altogether a great stout. On second thought, the sweet/sour and chocolate combination is actually pretty well pulled off. Extremely interesting, albeit confusing.

Moolesen (477) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.
