Dark chocolate brown color. Huge rocky head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is sharply sweet, with lots of malt, but with a slight, pleasant acidity. Very nice. A friend brought me this bottle straight from Brussels.

Aroma is strong and resembles roasted coffe. Sweetness in the aroma is evident. Pours with a lot of head! and is roasted black in appearance. The beer has a lot of character, a lot of different, sweet notes. Great body. A very good beer! Sweet aftertaste.

TtV (33) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark, almost black with light creamy head. Aroma is lovely sweet, but the taste is quite complex. The double characteristics are there, but there’s some kind of sourness in it. Can’t say I don’t like it. Not an easy drinker though.
