On tap at In de Wildeman. Dark brown, nice tan head. Chocolate and caramel aroma. Potent chocolate flavours, but also a tart, astringent finish. Nice and original.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a coffee touch . This beer smells to coffee.

Great nose, palate slightly on the thin side. Long aftertaste with a bitterness that sets in at the end. Ramses sure knows how to make beers.
Had this at the Noordelijk Bierfestival 2010 in Groningen

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Dark brown to black pour with a thick creamy and foamy off-white to tan head. Aroma is grassy hops, burnt malts, some bitter coffee and slightly sweet citrus fruits. Flavor is quite bitter, almost like a black IPA with loads of grassy hops, roasted malts and slightly sour citrus. Slightly messy, but powerful brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is lovely hops, fruit, chocolate and liquorice.
Flavour is thinner than expected, same for mouthfeel, with a medium bitterness, quite dry, with a faint hint of sweetness. Lot’s of liquorice, hops, some fruit. Good beer, but more body would be nice.
