COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered.
Ingredients: Water; Barley malt; Hops; Candi-sugar; Yeast.
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.

Dark sugar and peppery feel. Strong alcohol warming. Not bad but not my favorite

LaFuite (3) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2014 does not count
Au nez, complexe, frais avec des notes de chocolat et légèrement caféiné. Bien équilibré. On trouvera aussi quelques notes d’alcool. Couleur brune tirant sur le noir avec chapeau de mousse plutôt clair. Niveau goût, équilibré également entre chocolat et café. Arrière goût d’alcool mais pas évident de deviner qu’on est sur du 9%. Bien!

Achei que a espuma se desfez muito rapidamente. Leve amargor, café torrado. Não me impressionou.

MunBro (539) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Rich deep brown/black pour with a tan head. Robust flavours of roasted malts, chocolate, and a very sweet sticky toffee aftertaste which threw me off a bit. Overall a good dark Belgian.
