warenik (4) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Gorgeous red-purple appearance, far too much toffee-colored head, cognac nose, bitter black currant and brandied cherries in an alcoholic wet dream. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is black colored and has nearly no head, which should be cream colored. Also carbonation is a little low. The aroma is a very rich palate of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, and some sweetness of raisins and caramel. The taste is overal medium sweet with notes of caramel, dark fruits and a hint of alcohol. The aftertaste is a well balanced light bitter. First there is the sweetness and then a hint of the used hops is noticable. Above all, it’s very warming and the alcohol is noticable in the background. Seriously, one of the best beers in Holland. Shame it’s so expensive (€3,00 a bottle).

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Hazy brownish pour with a frothy head. Notes of berries, gains, syrup, caramel and some herbal notes.

MichaelAwesome (5729) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Schön dick und vollmundig mit einer ordentlichen prise an Früchten im Aroma. Daneben spielt der Alkohol eine nicht zu geringe Rolle, während Brot und Erde eine gewisse Grundehrlichkeit verleihen. Nicht schlecht.

Taste of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, plums, dried fruits, wine, oak, chooclate, malt, flowers, caramel, bread and hops. Belgian, strong finish. Very complex beer.

bipe74 (3) - Odense S, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015 does not count
Meget mørk, og tung øl. Ikke meget skum. Dufter meget af frugt, smagen er sød og kraftig, er lidt "tung" i smagen, måske det er chokoladen der gør det

Een van de lekkerste IPS die ik tot nu toe op heb. Wat zachtere caramel/koffie smaak en is daardoor vrij toegankelijk.

Very dark brown color, thin brownish head. Aroma is very fruity, nutty, roasty, with coffee and chocolate ice cream. Taste is fairly sweet, thick and warming, very fruity, dark chocolate, smoke, light tartness. Smooth and complex. Full body, soft carbonation. Excellent.

Aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate and toasted bread. Dark with a very small off white head. Thick and full bodied with hints of rasins, oak, wine, roasted bread, coffee and chocolate. Lots of flavours and a bit alcoholic. Very sweet as well. Aftertaste a bit dry and malty.
