Csouye (57) - OLNE, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2013
Arômes de pain grillé, malt torréfie, faible mousse crème, saveur entre fruité et torréfié, riche et dense. Bel équilibre avec une pointe légère d’amertume torréfiée en arrière-bouche...

knotthead (15) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bitter itrus aroma, beautiful chestnut colour. Starts with an apple flavour, but further into the beer begins to show flavours of darker fruits further into the bottle. Certainly gets nicer once the mouth adjusts. Soft palate, good mouthfeel.

Bosbouw (2510) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2013
Diep donkerbruine kleur met een goede kraag. Zoete drop en typische donkerbier geur. Smaakt zoetig, beetje drop en verder zoetig stroopachtig.

Draft at The Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a very dark ruby with a big foamy head. Aroma of yeast, ripe berries and dark malt. Creamy, full mouth feel. Flavours of dark fruit, liquorice and molasses. Palate is port like, with hints of rye bread and toffee.

coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle from Belgian Beer Shop Antwerpen @home. Pours very dark brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is much like the original Donker aroma, with some hints of dark, ripe fruits, and caramel malts. The flavor is mainly sweet, with a slightly bitter finish. The texture is very thick and creamy. The taste overall is quite okay, but the thick, syrupy texture makes for an offensive experience. Not my favorite.

Mcbertola (123) - BRAZIL - AUG 30, 2013
Cerveja escura, ale, forte. Cheiro bem agradável lembra um cheiro de um espumante, frutado. Por ter um teor alcoólico de 11% é bem forte, porém o gosto marcante compensa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
