bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle at La Poechenellekelder in Brussels. Commended by the server as a very good drink. Dark/brown black color with a multifinger rocky tan head. Laced. Strong aromas of toasted malt and coffee. Dark toasted malt, but smooth, not harsh. Coffee is very low key. Drinks refreshingly. At 4.5% it doesn’t weigh me down. The coffee comes forth a bit more towards the finish. Very good drink. Went well with bread and Chimay cheese.

EHopper (619) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Opaque black, even strong light does not penetrate. Foamy carmel cream head. Surprisingly light coffee and and burnt linen/flax aroma. Fizzy, strong burnt wood flavor with a hint of weak, dark coffee. Reminds me of a smoke flavored tea called Lapsang Souchong. This beer is very dry with a lingering finish of bitters. It is so different it will be worth offering to others some day as a surprising experience.
