Bottle pour at the source. Pours an inky black with a khaki colored head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has toffee, coffee, chocolate, and fig. Taste is sweet and roasty and finishes with a subtle bitterness. Thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very tasty stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottle #1301 of 1500. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that didn’t stay around for too long. Lacing is decent. The brew smells like cola, candy sugar, roasted malt, chocolate, and some earthiness. It tastes like dark fruit (cherries, plums), roasted malt, cola, candy sugar, bittersweet chocolate and some herbal earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I liked it. Definitely worth a try if you come across some. $12.99 a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at The Ohio Taproom. Pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium khaki head that dissipates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roast malt, coffee and yeast in the nose. Medium-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and mildly spicy yeast. The finish is malty up front with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Pours a very dark brown, small cappuccino head. Aroma is plenty of belgian yeast, a little bit of roastiness, dark fruit, cherry for sure, even some cola. Taste is cherry, plum, some chocolate, belgian funk, earth. Pretty nice brew.
