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.

330 ml. bottle. brwon colour, with a big whtie head that does not hold for too long, but leaves a good lace. Smell of chocolate, dried fruits (figs, plums), liquorice, cherries and spices. Surprisingly, the body is not as strong as I was hoping. Taste is the same as smell; dried fruits, chocolate, spices and liquorice. It reminds too of some liquor that Ican’t remember now. One that I can repeat, and hoping it will be soon.

HammerTroll (683) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 27, 2015
Dark brown color, hazy or cloudy, it’s hard to determine. Big tan head, not a firm one, drops to minimal one. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, malt and sugar. Taste is same plus plum. Medium to heavy sweetness. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation, sweet fruity finish. Nice enough.

It's chocolate and malts, its got a big dark nose. I'm getting spices that are covered in more mochas and it's smooth, lusciously smooth.

I don’t think I like Belgian beers... I try and try but they never seem to get any better.... This is like raisins... Prunes maybe... Like... I dunno, weird. And super super carbonated.

From a bomber poured in a snifter. Pours translucent brown. Aroma is alcohol, CO2, and liquor esters. Flavor is rich and malty with slight alcohol burn and a clean slightly bitter finish. Moderate sweet notes throughout. Very good well balanced beer,
