Grey to brown body with small head. Immediately get notes of ash. Strange. Luckily also forest, figs and yeast. Dry mouthfeel but with a light body (for this style) like whiskey. Malty sweetness in finish. Can’t get my head around this one. Didn’t like it really but brewed well and happy i’ve tried it. On tap at De Molen)

Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Poured a very dense murky dark brown colour with a huge tan head which hung around and then some. Cracking snout of fragrant hop, yeast, caramel malt and dark fruits. Lovely creamy smooth mouthfeel. Flavour was a similar treat with loads happening.....roasted coffee, earthy hop, malts, a little booze. Long lingering finish. Oh so drinkable. Yumdidlyumyum.

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2011
Draft @ DeMolen, Aug 5th visit. brune foncée avec un col beige. Arôme malte allant sur la réglisse, touche de caramel, citron et houblon. En bouche, mélange de toffee, malt chocolat noir, grillé avec qcq épices. Sec avec touche de poudre de chocolat et un alcool réchauffant. Tout comme l’arôme, je note ce profile de réglisse le tout finissant avec une fine amertume citronnée.

Niet lang genoeg laten rusten dus de helft ging naast het glas. Maar de andere helft was prachtig. Mooie donkerbruine kleur en stevige cremekleurige schuimkraag. Stevig vol bier.

Yves (2524) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2011
Darkbrown coloured beer with large brownish head and medium carbonation. Malty sweet aroma with lots of roasted hints. Full creamy palate. Finish is sweet malty with hints of coffe like a stout and a slight bitter touch. Nice one.

BenH (2930) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Pours black with tan head, looks like a stout. Aroma is very smokey, some coffee. Up front taste is quite soapy, not in a good way. Luckily this quickly makes way to to a deep chocolate, coffee, woody, dark fruit, smokey deep dark flavour. Aftertaste is gorgeous, lingering flavour of chocolate. The soapy note is bothering me as this is otherwise a very tasty drink. Belgian quad meets imperial stout. Mouthfeel is very creamy, high carbonation

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2011
Overwhelming head, which goes down quick because the bubbles seem to be large and burst soon .The head is brown, and liquid is pretty black. Against window I see a bit light coming though so not pitch black, but quite stout style colour. Smell is malty, sweet and there’s clearly hops. The beer is strong in malts, bread like in aroma, and hops come strong after a while with spruce aroma. Texture is creamy , there’s plenty of carbonation and finish is long.
