Super yummy. Coffee and chocolate dominate the flavor profile. High alcohol but hidden very well.

Holy crap,this is one of the best beers i’ve ever tasted. I don’t understand the low ratings at all. Nose is marshmellow and espresso. Thick, brown head and lacing. Flavor is chocolate, marshmellow, espresso happiness.

nearbeer (3840) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2014
750 ml. bottled 2013/07/10. Nearly opaque, deep mahogany color with a lasting centimeter of creamy foam. Aroma is mixed light and dark fruit, brown bread, toffee, cocoa and espresso with cream. Tastes of lightly tart berry, vanilla, dark toasted bread, dark chocolate and toffee. Swirling notes of orange, apple, plum and all kinds of darker fruit throughout. Only minor distraction is the long finish has some scorched sugar and grain that gets a little overbearing at times. Medium-heavy body is lightly tingly with a smooth carbonation. Great balance from all directions and dangerously drinkable for 11%.

Wow. Roasty, toasty, coffee and caramel. Smooth and so very sneaky at 11% ABV. Well done.

beerbastard (726) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2013
750ml bottle, with a dark brown pour and lots of lacing. Wonderful aromas of roasted coffee and toffee. Big flavors of milk chocolate along with lots of coffee and caramel. Flavors extend into the finish with some Belgium yeast notes. Very rich and smooth! This beer is fantastic. Great Winter Beer! Hides the alcohol.

mikedR (1333) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2014
The name of the game here is coffee, in color, aroma, and taste. Think Dark Belgian, with the requisite yeast flavors therefrom, with espresso everywhere. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

goozen (3064) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle with cork 0,75ltr: Very dark brown coloured brew with red glow. Amazing smell of chocolate, dry bitter taste with some sweetness. Hints of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and an Dutch treat named "Haags Hopje". Quite amazing winter warmer.
