There is one who foretells what is coming. How the future grows darker each day. That an ancient voice soon will be calling, and good folks will be caught in its sway.

For the soothsayer brews a magnificent ale, deep and black, through the blackest of arts. He predicts its pure notes, without secrets or spice, will tempt tongues, will turn heads, will steal hearts.

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with a small beige head that quickly diminishes. The aroma is a fruity malt and raisin. Medium mouthfeel with a sour fruit and yeast. Easy to drink a good Belgian strong ale from Ommegang.

Tried this beer over dinner with a bunch of friends, gotta say that for using no spices for the flavor or aroma the guys at Omegang did a fantastic job on this beer. Best on a cold night :)

Draft at Maloney’s. Poured a deep dark burgundy/brown with a large foamy light beige head. Aroma of yeast, wet burnt toast, dark berries, light chocolate, tropical fruits and a slight hint of butter. The body is very full with fizzy carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Flavor of yeast, char, dark toast, burnt strawberries and some tropical fruits. Meh, not bad but the body needs to be toned down some and maybe a touch more chocolate.

bottle. deep brown with a large, lively, whipped, tan head. nose of dark fruits and a whole spectrum of barley ranging from pale to roasted. reminds me of many unibroue beers. lively carbonation gives the sensation of the beer growing in the mouth. foamy. flavors of bitter roasted malts and the crystal malt. missing the candy like sweetness of..say..trois pistoles. leaves something to be desired. not the full flavored belgian strong i was hoping for.

Pour on tap at Falling Rock, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of slightly sour fruits, dark raisin, black cherry, hints of vanilla, some nice roast and chocolate, hints of a yeasty spice as well. Taste is nice with some sweet fruits including raisin, plum, hints of cherry, touch of sour apple notes, hints of caramel, roasted malt, some chocolate as well in there, some spice rounding it out. This was a bit all over the place, but enjoyable.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours pitch black with a massive tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a dark molasses and anise flavor with a slightly sour finish. Complex and tasty,

Thanks to Volgon who got me a bottle of this a few weeks ago. It poured a dark dark dark with a very lengthy, lingering full tanish head. Thick earthy, spicy aroma which hovered slightly over an undercurrent of bitter alcoholishness. The mouthfeel was, oddly, both mildly prickly with its tiny sharp effervescence hanging up at the roof of the mouth, while balanced atop a smooth and mild velvetyness that skimmed across the tongue. Licorce, nutty pine, and dark shadows pervaded the taste. Nice.

Cybercat (5169) - Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2012
Pours a deep, opaque, brownish sable with a very thick and somewhat persistent light tan head. The sample I got fizzed quite a bit, so I recommend having a towel handy when you crack open a bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel and molasses plus hints of licorice and pear. Superb flavor has a malty core and fruity, caramel and molasses tones, hints of horehound, licorice and honey. Smooth, firm-bodied texture does not have a lot of fizz, but it still pleases. Let this "dark side" seduce you while you have the opportunity.
