Dark brown bordeaux-coloured beer with a firm broken-white head. The aroma is pleasant, with some pear and roasted nuts. The palate is nutty, with some chocolate impressions followed by exotic fruit. This beer with strong character has a beautiful finish with some bitter hop and caramel.

Looks great, nearly pitch black with a foam head that lasts. Carbonation is OK too, medium body. Taste is roast at first but then followed by cough drop and caramel. Metallic comes in and takes over the finish. Couldn’t convince me.

kustie (257) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle. Opaque black color with a light brown head. Licorice, ripe fruits and caramel in aroma. Taste is malty and quite sweet with a long somewhat bitter aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, ripe fruits, licorice, coffee and some hops. Nice one with some good characteristics but not such a specialty.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Scotch-style ale since 2009 with sticky, stable, moussy head and very dark bronze colour with chestnut hue, hazy. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, tobacco, dried leaves, walnuts, dates, raisins, chocolate and some DMS (red cabbage). Fruity onset (pear, peach) quickly overwhelmed by a sharpish coffee-like roasted bitterness, then shifting to a thick chocolatey, sweetish maltiness, creamy and leading to a mild hoppy and warming alcoholic finish. Very nice.

tricksta_p (1508) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, dark fruit, spices. Flavour is sweet with a dry finish. Good beer, but the Wolf 7 is more to my liking.

jerohen (2046) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Bottled, i guess from biernavigatie.nl. Very dark brown colored, small but lasting beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, raisins, chocolate even, hint of coffee, reminiscent of Rochefort. Flavor starts with roasted malts, some licorice, then some caramel, sweet, but more bitter towards the end. Licorice and bitterness in a long lasting finish. A very nice example of the style. I’d like to see an "imperial" version of this once, which would really bring it close to the Rochefort 10 level.

Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a huge, frothy white head that lingers. Strong aromas of bubblegum, plus licorice, wood, and yeast. Mild sweetness at beginning, with a muted, albeit complex flavor profile. Quickly goes through caramel to citrus/yeast and bubblegum. finishing with a long, yeasty bitterness, alcohol and cloying sugars. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty brew. Nice complexity on the nose and flavor profile. A good example of a Belgian speciaal bier.
