sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2011
Bouteille 33cl. Présente une belle couleur cuivrée allant sur une note bordeaux, col épais beige. Bouquet fruité allant vers la prune, figue, date, sucre candi le tout ayant ce nez de fruits fermentés. Une bière agréable dans le style d’abbaye. Mélange un très bon profile malté, grillé donnant aussi des notes de café et torréfier avec des notes de fruits, prune et figue. Une très belle surprise.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Recht süßer Antrunk, in dem nach kurzer Zeit eine herbe sowie eine alkoholische Note auftreten. Im Mittelteil sehr würzig, der Alkohol hat sich aber nicht ganz gewandelt und ist so mit einer scharfen Note noch länger erkennbar. Deutlich schokoladig, intensiv röstig, zudem ist eine süßliche Kaffeenote vorhanden. Im weiteren Verlauf verschwinden Süße und Alkohol in einer sich steigernden Würzigkeit, die auch einige wenige Kräutertöne beinhaltet. Stimmiges Bierfür einen dunklen Winterabend! Danke an DerDoppelbock für das Bier! 11/13/11/14/10/13

BigMomma (223) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 33cl bottle
Black color with a red shine and a white head.
Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, slight fruity yeast esters and hop. The flavor starts with a great flavor of coffee, roasted barley and dark chocolate and then finishes in a hoppy finish which is quite dry and has some hints of coffee in it.
Very tastefull beer!
[score: 4.1]

Great lacing. First aroma is espresso, chocolate becomes more sensible. Flavor is very dark chocolate with an espresso finish, slight alcohol touch, raisins, flavor is slightly more sweet then the last one but the final dry touch is still there, slight hoppy notes in there, mainly espresso dryness. . Fat body, awesome drinkability.
[score: 4.2]

Stays consistent.
