The heaviest ale on our menu with a very rich taste, coming from the six different kinds of malt we use. These malts also give it that rich, dark, nearly black colour. The royal doses of Challenger and Saaz hops bring the typical balance between sweet and bitter.

Vells (715) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 18, 2014
One of the first craft brews I ever tried. Was awesome back then, now I picked up for rating it after ~ 3 years.. Its still awesome! Superb malty background, some roast, caramel, light licorice, toffee, a lots of fruit, hops, yet its stil DARK sided with awesome raisin kick. Notes of wood. Great brew, great balance, nice price/performance. Want a box of them.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Balanced Belgian with both dark, wonderful coffee bitterness and a strong ale-wonderful soy feel. The tasting takes place under suboptimal conditions, but this is something I would gladly drink again.

dnicolaescu (856) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 25, 2014
BOTTLE 33 CL from dcmchew. Look: opaque really dark mahogany, big beige creamy head with good retention. Aroma: starts rather harsh (striking match) and spicy, lots of dried prunes, notes of black malts, toasted. Taste: dried fruit sweetness, very light roasted malts, moderate spicy hop bitterness, Belgian yeast spice.

A nice Belgian dark strong with a touch of roasted malts.

ruigo (1153) - PORTUGAL - SEP 22, 2014
33cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a tan head. Coffee, wood, raisins and hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is complex but not so well balanced with a dry finish. Overall, an interesting beer that I must try again.

bonkiedeaap (281) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a dark brown to black color and a large cream colored head, with a lot of bubbles. Big notes of figs, plums and pumpernickel bread, with suggestions of fermented cherries and wafts of dark chocolate and a minor hint of coffee. Some metallic notes hit upfront, but fade quickly, giving way to dark fruits, dark fruit juice and rum-soaked raisins. This beautiful dark Belgian ale drops nectarous fruitiness, evoking concentrates of plum, raisin and black cherries. The taste is full and with a nice sweetness which changes into a light bitterness from the cacao tones filled with some hops. Also a little alcohol is noticable which evokes into notes of dark-fruit liquor. The finish is fresh and bitter, which is still noticable after a minute.
