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.

kajser27 (473) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 5, 2015
Hazy, dark brown to black colored, moderate creamy tan head. Aroma is toffee, brown sugar, some toasted bread, roasted malt, spice and Belgian yeast. Taste is medium to very sweet brown sugar, spices, peppery medium bitterness, roasted malt and burnt toast, bittersweet finish and Belgian yeasty notes. Lasting bitter aftertaste. Medium+ bodied and moderate carbonation, sticky. Very good but a bit cloying.

jamestulloch (2337) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle (8.5%) from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a quickly fading beige head. Very faint lacing. Aroma of flat Coca-Cola, dark chocolate, candy sugar and prune. Flavour of toffee, brown sugar, Marmite and candy. Thin body with a prickly, powdery texture. Lively fizz. Not bad... but forgettable.

adster (543) - HUNGARY - OCT 2, 2015
Újabb belgian strong ale akadt a kezem ügyébe a Noir de Dottignies személyében, amely külleme és aromái tekintetében a típus mintapéldánya is lehetne, amennyiben a mahagóni, homályos testre telepedő, krémes és tojáshéj színű, örökkévalóság alatt elolvadó habpárna alól felszálló banános-rágógumis, pajkosan élesztős aromafelhőt meghatározó jellegzetességnek tekintjük a műfaj esetében. Márpedig nyilvánvalóan jól megszokott jellemvonások ezek, így valamelyest az ízével kapcsolatban is határozott elképzeléseink lehetnek már anélkül is, hogy ténylegesen belekóstolnánk az italba. Természetesen a malátás édesség és belgás élesztősség csapásiránya mentén haladunk ezután is, a kevéske alkohollal meglocsolt dió és mazsola zserbós jellege eközben pedig a már szintén jól ismert, mégis élményszámba menő arculattal ruházza fel a számomra igen kedves alapszerkezetet. A végére jön még egy kis komló is, ami ugyan kissé megélesíti a karaktert, a lágy és kerekded jegyek borszerű testessége azonban mindvégig megtartja az italt az emelkedettebb hangvételű belga főzetek magasztos terepén.

Icedwarf (854) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is sterk, lichte rook, bitter en ietwat zoet met sporen van chokolade. Smaak blijft lang hangen.

C’est trčs noire, plein de bananes, sombre et dense. Tu ne bois pas, tu manges tellement c’est épais.

ChtiBreizh (258) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 3, 2015

chinchill (3229) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2015
330ml bottle of very dark brown ale that pours with a fine head. A layer of dark sediment remained on the bottom of the bottle after a complete pour. The rich, moderately complex flavor is dominated by dark fruits and dark roasted malts. Traces of smoke, hints of black coffee, bitter chocolate and toffee. Everything, including bitter/sweet, seems in perfect balance. Overall: Higher ABV is very well hidden. Highly recommended.

ALLOVATE (2687) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2015
At cellar temperature and into a chalice. Fine sediment settles quickly to the base of the glass. The body a misty, ruby tinged brown with good legs and a fine and tight bead amongst its whipped up tan cream of a head. Initially soft is the nose. Raisins and prunes in syrup, muscatels and tawny port, burnt sugar and an earthy maltiness slowly breathes from the glass. On the palate it has a soft butteriness to some otherwise savoury, dried fruit notes. Palate is smooth and for 9.0% ABV it really holds it in check far too well. Not big in body by all accounts but rounded and poignant. Good length becoming quite woody and nutty with plenty of yeast in there. Quite fruity, vinous and port-like. There is a burnt smoky note held in the depths I just can’t pinpoint but it melds well. Drinks like a Belgian Strong should. Long and dry with plump fruit upfront and just enough sweetness to balance. Lovely stuff! (33cL, unknown drink - by [label not cropped], Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)
