Thanks to my French friends for this one! Brought Look: the beer pours a dark brown color with a small head. Smell: Full of roasted malts, dark chocolate, typical Belgium yeast and some wooden oak tones. Taste: Dark and bitter chocolate malts, with oak in the bitter aftertaste. Only very slight cognac flavor are present when the beer warms up Mouthfeel: medium-thin body with medium carbonation Overall: A nice beer. Deep in my heart, I expected more though. A bit too single dimensional IMO, but still enjoyable. I would never turn one down

Bottle, bought @ Moeder Lambic, St. Gilles.
Pours completely black with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has definite cognac notes, chocolate, mild roasted malts, nuts and mild oak. Medium carbonation, nice dry and creamy if somewhat light mouthfeel. Flavour has chocolate, cocoa, oaky dryness, nuts and lots of coffee. Soft, velvety and delicious with a long, dry and bitter finish.

BlackHaddock (3763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
37.5 cl Bottle # 031: bought at the Alvinne-Pre Zythos Fest a couple of years back (4 Euros) and I’ve been saving it for the last day of earth (tomorrow at 12.12 I am told). Hope the beer hits the spot. Poured slowly into a Westmalle chalice @ home on 20 Dec 2012. Looks impressive in the glass: creamy feel to the tanned head and a body that has a brown base with a dull red hue to it. The nose is chocolate with attitude: as is the taste, the barrel obviously gave the beer a slightly wine/port/cognac flavour but never having had an un-barrel aged ’Numero 2’ I can’t say how much it has influenced the taste. I hope this isn’t my last beer on earth: but if it is or was then at least I can tell everyone in the afterworld I’ve had a fine beer just before the earth fell apart!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick tan head. A fantastic aroma of dark chocolate and bitter cocoa with grassy hops also. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and bitterness. The cognac and oak notes linger very nicely with a great creamy mouth-feel. This is brilliant!
