4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet, milky coffee, chocolatey aromas.
Lovely thick dark appearance, with a nice tan head that sticks around.
Bitter but not too bitter coffee notes on the initial taste. Roasty malts balanced out with a sublime chocolate sweetness. This beer is superbly balanced.
Dense palate with a slight, pleasant carbonation.
Very, very nice beer. Would absolutely recommend.

Tap at Moeder Lambic. Dark brown with medium tanned head. NOSE : black chocolate, toffee, tart, port wine, floral notes and honey. Dried plums. SIP : medium to thick body with delicate carbonation. Oily texture. Sweet flavour of black chocolate and cooked dried dark fruits. The middle is mild and dairy like. Ending gets dry and bitter like coffee. Earthy feeling on the tongue. OVERALL : mild and easy to drink. Still quite complex and tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Bottle 0.5 l @ home. Pours dark with stiff medium head. Nice! Aroma is (pretty vague) malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste is much the same, with some hops as well. Nice finishing bitterness on my tongue. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 (Bottle): Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of heavily roasted malt, dark chocolate, milky coffee, chocolate covered raisins, super malty bread. Superb taste - coffee, cocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, doughy, milky elements, slight smokiness and much, much more. It’s a rich, full bodied beer but has been reigned in to keep an amazing balance.
