COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Butelka 0,33 z Piwomaniaka. Lekkie rozczarowanie. Kolor brązowy, piana wysoka, podziurawiona, szybko opadla oblepiajac szklo. Aromat ledwo wyczuwalny slodowy i suszone owoce. W smaku suszona sliwka, slody. Wysokie wysycenie, zbyt wysokie. Ogolnie niezly belg tylko te wysokie wysycenie nie pozwala sie nim do konca cieszyc.

maledictum (704) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 7, 2015
Dark brown with a bit of red. Nice head dissipates quickly. The aroma is of fruit and liqueur. The flavor is sweet, malty, and strong alcohol. The aftertaste is a bit astringent, but otherwise alcohol pleasant.

rondphoto (2702) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear very dark brown, thick 1" brown head, bits and pieces of lace. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is toasted sweet malt with very light bits of chocolate and spice as it moves through the palate, adding a light edge for balance in the finish. Alcohol warmth arrives late. A reasonable brew, best for sipping.

A bit dissapointed. Aroma and taste malty, but not complex. Pslate a bit spicy. Overall an ok ale, but not the best in class.

pictoman (737) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from 330mL bottle [bb 08/2017]. Clear medium-dark brown with full beige head. Aroma predominantly Belgian yeasty with a bit of caramel and dark fruits. Taste doesn’t live up to the aroma. Lots of carbonation and yeast, not much else.
