Have been to the brewery. Very nice people and old-fashioned style of brewing. One of the best special beers in the Netherlands. Nice dark brown collar. High alcohol percentage but you dont taste it. N good palate of different flavors

BigMomma (223) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2010
33cl bottle #611/1186 batch May 2009
Pours a darkblack beer with no head or carbonization! Looks more like some very dark liquor.
The aroma is a bomb of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits and a slight note of sweet liquor and alcohol. Taste is a massive explosion of dark chocolate and powerfull espresso and coffee beans! In the end there is a long espresso afterburn attacking your throat. The drinkability is better then expected but the one thing bothering me is the complete lack of carbonization! It is as flat as possible... .
A massive explosive Stout, but a shame this one has no carbonization. Im for 99% sure that if there is even a slight amount of carbonization, the explosion of aroma and taste would be gigantic!! So this one certainly needs a retaste!

dutchbeerpages (1615) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2010 One of, if not the best beer of the Netherlands. Almost everything is perfect, the aroma of deep chocolate and malt and alcohol, the beautiful blackness and the brown foam, the overwhelming taste of coffee/chocolate and even stronger liqueurs and the alcoholic finish. Also perfect bitterness and a very nice mochalike aftertaste.

planky84 (2112) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle from Beers of Europe. I know this is going to be a cracking beer when its aromas are floating around the room as I type! Jet black pour with no head, barely any carbonation. Roasted aromas of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel. smoke, tobacco. Lovely! Flavours of dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, toffee, caramel. roasted malts. Sweet, smoky, meaty alcohol laden mouthfeel. Finishes dry, sweet with a very pleasing alcohol burn. Absolute classic of this style. Marvelous!

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Nearly pitch black body with ample light brown head. Dark fruits, chocolate, roasted malts, and some hops in the aroma and body. A smooth, sweet body. Well integrated flavors; nothing dominated my palate.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown colour with a medium-sized brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate with hints of hops and alcohol. The flavour is sweet, bitter, roasted malt, coffee, liquorice and chocolate. Quite full-bodied, bitter and roasted aftertaste. Very good, but few years in cellar might make this even better.
