teddybeer (2762) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2015
From my backlog. Dark brown color with a light beige head with good duration. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, light yeast, plumbs and wooden notes. Flavor is toasty, slightly bittery with notes of chocolate, yeast and ripe dark fruits. Slightly sweet final with wooden and barrel notes; toasty and yeasty hints as well. Excellent belgian beer.

Metalchopz (2605) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Best before 01/01/2015. Pours a darker brown colour, but not on the black side. Light beige head, bubbly, good retention and a little lacing. Yeasty nose reminding me of Champagne. Then, other scents comes out: nutty, raisins, caramel and dates. The taste is quite smooth with some lighter fruits, but still dark notes, yeast, caramel and roasted malts. Very smooth mouthfeel with just a little warmth. Not sure why they call this one "Black Chocolate" in the US, as I do not feel much chocolate malt. After eating some food, seems like a mix of coconut and vanilla lingers after the soft grassy finish. Quite nice overall.

RickTheRick (627) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Un liquide brun, légèrement marécageux et aux reflets acajou se laisse dominer par une mousse beige onctueuse. Caramel brûlé, raisins secs et sucre candi forment un bouquet qui laisse présager un liquide cochon en bouche. Des saveurs exquises de chocolat fourré au caramel, de fruits confits et de malt bien joufflu tapissent la bouche à chaque gorgée. Une astringence plutôt prononcée est venue couper le sucré un peu, mais ce ne fut pas désagréable. Grosse bière belge bien liquoreuse comme je les aime.
