Pours a dark brown color with a huge tan head. The aroma is full of cocoa, with a hint of dark fruit thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, with a bit of cherry thrown in. The beer is fairly sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and prickly carbonation.

Froma 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours nearly black with a tan head. Aromas of toasted malt and chocolate. Notes of tart cherries and caramel compliment the chocolate flavors. Thick, evervescent and luscious mouthfeel. Slightly bitter and tart finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark copper mahogany with a coffee ice cream colored head, ok lacing. Aroma is of a Belgian stout. Yeasty semi sweet dark chocolate. The cherries are far in the background. Generally restrained. Cherry is magnitudes more forward in the flavor but doesn’t reach tart. The dark chocolate comes back in for the length of the pleasantly fading aftertaste. Fleeting peppermint patty. Zero bitter. Full bodied mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with moderate viscosity. Very dark with a thin tan head. The nose is dominated by the signature of Belgian yeast but there are notes of chocolate and roastiness as well. On the palate there is significant milk chocolate sweetness balanced by roasted astringency and the zest of the Belgian yeast. Pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque dark brown colored body. The aroma was malty and cocoa. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild hops cocoa and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Would be great with chocolate cake!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at OHSO. Pours a dark brown with espresso head. Aroma is like cherry, chocolate and some coffee. Taste is semit sweet and a bit tart. Some roastiness is there also. Finish is pleasantly bitter. Not bad, but one is more than enough.

Pour is dark with a large head. Aroma is malty,yeasty and chocolate. I think I should have let this one warm up a little more it was more muted then I think it could have been. I very much woul like to revisit.
