OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Une bouteille offerte par Yan. Encore une fois, un gros merci! Un liquide embouteillé en 2011. Une robe qui est presque noire sur laquelle flotte une tête brune assez épaisse et bien résistante. La naissance d’une dentelle. Un nez bien expressif de chocolat et de malts torréfiés qui se laissent tranquillement envahir par un alcool floral et des houblons qui me semblent apporter une touche épicée. Quelques traces de cendre qui apparaissent ici et là, au fil de la dégustation. Un goût très concentré sur les malts rôtis et torréfiés avec une présence de notes douces et de réglisse noire. Un retour discret des notes cendrées. Des houblons toujours au garde-à-vous et des notes fruitées qui proviennent de la levure et/ou des céréales maltées. Une bouche très bien construite et satisfaisante avec son corps musclé. Un apport de bulles qui colle au style et une texture huileuse à souhait. Une finale qui combine l’amertume des houblons avec celle des grains rôtis. En conclusion, très appréciable.

Dark black body and nice head, delivers an incredibly rich nose. The carbonation is low. Good, intense aroma and taste of chocolate and coffee, toasted notes. A great porter.

marcus (6969) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle consumed at t’Arendsnest. Pours dark brown with an attractive tan head and chocolate aroma. There is a treacle and chocolate flavor that is really intense. A truly well-crafted chewy beer.

Bottle at Haandverkerstuene. Pitch black color, tiny tanned head, low carbonated. Roasty aroma with alcohol, dark chocolate, prunes. Rich taste of coffee, licorice, dark fruit, warming alcohol, cocoa. Bitter and dry for its high abv, which makes this a really good beer

Eructoblaster (3191) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle - 330ml. Pours an opaque black body with low carbonation and a thick beige foamy head. Strong, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, plummy, and light roasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its robust taste carries strong roasty, anise, and plummy notes. Ends with a long, warming bitter/roasty finish. First class stuff.

With some surprise the bottle opens without sounds, the beer is completely flat, it pours still, with just some few bubbles due to the fall; black color. The aroma is very rich, with chocolate, leather; then some tobacco and very light phenol. The texture is rather oily, but the chocolate flavor is excellent, with moderate residual sweetness, some leather, some liquorice, and mild woody astringency in the end; quite bold bitterness too. With some carbonation, this beer must be splendid.

Poured up on tap at De Molen with deep dark mahogany body supporting a tan head and leaving behind full sheet lacing. The aroma offers up rich raisin, prune and date notes as well as some brown sugar, dark roasted malts and chocolate that is off in the background. The taste has dark roasted malts and some chocolate moving into firm prune and date like sweet dark fruity ester notes. Behind those notes are light amounts of highly roasted malts, molasses, chocolate and booze. Overall it is a bit dark fruity ester forward for my taste.
