Draft at teresa’s with Evan, pours plum color with medium off whit head, good lacing. Notes of dark fruit, malt, spice, chocolate dust, grapes, and fig. Medium body with assertive carbonation. As refreshing as an 8 percent belgian can be.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Monks. Very dark orange-brown with some off-white foam up top. Lots of malt. Very nice dark red fruit flavors backed with chocolate. Full but not syrupy. Nutella. Plums. Molasses. Cocoa dusted dark cherries. Excellent - but additionally exceptional that such a dark winter brew tastes so good cold as well as warm.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a near-black brown body with a bronze hue and a massive creamy off-white head. Nose is grains, caramel, chocolate, deep malts and hints of raisins and candy sugar. Taste is bitter herbal tones up front, then dark chocolate, grains and burnt sugar follows. Quite bitter and sweet at the same time, without the best of integration on any level. Hints of floral yeasty notes and dry grass in the finish. Full body, high carbonation. Not bad, but then again not exactly my kind of beer.

Awesome brew. Basically an Belgian imperial Stout with a flourish of Belgian flavor b and yeast notes. Big roasted and toffee flavors with light dried and caddied sugars, molasses and brown sugar. Just a delight.

I prefer the other delasenne brews. This one is quite complex in taste. Chocolate, malts, a bit smoked, bitterness. Quite good, but i prefer their stouterik or black in japan..
