P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Black with brown hints, awsome head with an unreal staying power, a real beauty to see poured. Chocolate ice cream aroma, soy, rich chocolate power. Very belgian tasting with its big yeast wallop. Unsweeted chocolate, figs, a bit of sourness. Lots of hints that leave me thinking Belgian Dubbel, carmelly with a twinge of sourness and alc to finish. I love De Dolle!

DocJitsu (1663) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with a rich reddish tan head. Dark roasted malt, fig, and brown sugar nose. Too carbonated. Sorghum, fig, brown sugar, with a fruity sweetness all the way to the finish.

alteregoo (860) - POLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Gigantyczna, beżowa piana, drobna i dość trwała. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna. W aromacie karmel, kawa zbożowa, kakao, suszone owoce, cukier kandyzowany, cola... W smaku dość słodkie, palone, ze sporą ilością rodzynek, daktyli, karmelu i czekolady. W posmakach jakiś tytoń, ciemny cukier, likier waniliowy... Goryczka średnia do niskiej, ziołowo palona, lekko pikantna. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, musujące w ustach. Półpełne, ziemiste w odbiorze.
Niezły FES, bardziej po belgijskiej, quadowej stronie, czyli estry i fenole w przewadze nad czekoladą i kawą. Piwo nieco przegazowane co zmniejsza pijalność, mimo to przyjemne.

OminouSC2 (424) - SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
Dark roasted malt aromas with coffee and some cacao. Taste is a nice bitter-sweet moment, just like that feeling when the glass is empty way too soon. Some alcohol taste during the finish.

wombat23 (607) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Very foamy immediately after opening bottle. Aroma of dark fruits, coffee and chocolate. Taste is vinous, some sourness, mild chocolate, coffee notes, hints of vinegar. Doesn’t taste much like a stout. Perhaps an old bottle?
