3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from Willems, Grobbendonk). More or less pitch black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is liquorice, spices, alcohol. Flavour is quite similar, with some ripe fruits and dark berries as well. Wellbalanced and quite a pleasant surprise. Almost an imperial stout meeting a kind of Belgian strong "donker".

Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Dark brown color with some sediment and generous compact head. Simple aroma, some roasted malt and dark caramel. The mouthfeel is affected by the high carbonation, there is some flavor of chocolate and roasted malt, and too much liquorice for a Belgian beer; some alcohol feeling in the end.
