Bottle at Brewberry, Paris
Dark brown color, almost black; well carbonated, slow gusher, but the head retention is short. Roasted malt aroma, caramel. Roasted malt flavor, some chocolate and soil, and ashes, with dry mouthfeel. Crossover between Belgian and Stout, clean but roasty; apparent alcohol.

Mikkylar (94) - Placentia, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with light brown head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Reminds me of cherry cola. Tastes sweet with notes of chocolate. Heavy body with a good amount of carbonation. Almost no bitterness. Definitely a Belgian Strong Ale but also very unique.

TheCametron (2116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with a lively tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate syrup and overripe fruit. Flavour is raisiny sweet with some burnt wood notes. Quite interesting, feuding flavour sources. Sugar and slight smoke. The alcohol is there in cahoots with the rampant sweetness and it finishes with a satisfactory bitterness. Not like any other Belgian Strong I’ve tasted. Delicious and different.

Beersiveknown (4011) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 9, 2012
Pours deep ruby brown with energetic tan foam. All stewed plums and rasins on the nose its pretty boozy in the mouth and tastes like grandma’s fruitcake. Finishes with a good dollop of bitterness and a touch of coffee.

GothGargoyle (1705) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
On draft at CASK in London. Black with a Decent beige head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is raisin, port, strawberry, vanilla. Slightly slick mouthfeel, sweet on the palate, with a long finish that has a slight bitterness and a little harshness. Taste is Raisins, figs, dates, oak. Nice but could be smoother, although it improves as it warms.
