sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Bouteille, Anno 2013, bottled 09/20/2013. Brune foncée, col blanc-cassé moyen. Arôme est malté grillé, pointe de levure belge, retrouve une note de mélasse et un côté herbacé , botanique-soda dont le poivré reste un peu en retrait. Plais est malté, clairement orienté sur un côté belge dans la levure, petite note venant chatouiller la gorge, raisin, fruité noir, sucre candi. Malt carapils, pâle et chocolat. Retrouve une épaisseur caractéristique du seigle. Fini reste belge, grillé avec une fine note d’amertume houblonnée.

Rustyham (1799) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
This looks, smells, and tastes like a slightly boozy Irish stout. Taste of rum and roast. Not a lot of floral.

smaynard6000 (782) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2015
750ml bottle from 2013. Pours black with a generous beige head. Aroma is a mixture or fruitiness and some roastiness. Fruity and spicy character up front on the palate which is balanced by a roasty finish with just a hint of smoke. Quite good and very interesting.

Savage_Night (112) - California, USA - MAY 24, 2015
2013 750ml. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head. Head retention is good. AROMA: roasted malts, peppercorn, herbal/floral hops, caramel, chocolate, light coffee, slight citrus, smoke, vanilla and light candied sugar. TASTE: peppercorns, hop bitterness, slight citrus, caramel, coffee, chocolate, smoke, roasted coffee beans and light candied sugar. AFTER TASTE: caramel, coffee, peppercorns and very slight alcohol with an oily finish. Great tasting brew but I prefer Monkish Shaolin Fist over Pepe Nero.

Franckg (462) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Version 2012, bue après 2 ans. Goût de baies confites, raisins secs et cassonade. Goût de madère évident mais cela ajoute une autre dimension au liquide.

DocJitsu (1250) - Florida, USA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a gray-taupe head. Sweet and tart nose consisting fig, grape, brown sugar, bits of chocolate, and Belgian earthiness. Smells like an appealing quad. Full body and a bit crisp. The flavor expresses the Belgian earthiness much more abundantly then what is detected in the nose. A blank, bitterish seltzer flavor persists throughout. Some tart grape. None of that wonderful brown sugar or chocolate in the flavor. At least none that can compete with the aforementioned ones.
