Draft. Black pour with tan head. Compared to the roasted aromas of daily grind, the aroma is dull. Sweet oatmeal, malt sweetness, roasted and vanilla tones.

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, på Holmens aktivitetsdag mars-14: voi, voi, dette er snop! Oppfra det flotte og langvarige (storboblede) skummet stiger en forførerisk aroma av sjokolade, kakao, litt kaffe og litt mørke bær. Smaken er stor og velbalansert, her har de truffet innertier mellom bitterhet og sjokoladepreg. Ikke den lengste ettersmaken, men det gjør den farlig konsumerbar. Bruser litt for mye i munnen til at den får topp score på palate.

Dark brown, almost black. Large and persistent beige head. Lots of dark chocolate, milk chocolate and cocoa in aroma. Also roasted malt and coffee. Extremely well balanced with bitterness in taste. Mouthfeel slightly too fizzy. Surprisingly drinkable.

Fles voor mezelf, en gelukkig maar. Donker met stevige lichtbruine volle kraag. Onder in het glas gist delen. Aroma van chocolade en koffie ergens in de verte wat mokka. Smaak is zacht bitter en het bitter is iets meer aanwezig bij de afdronk. Dit biertje streelt de tong.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 (Drinking date: 23 January 2014) Pitchblack colour, no light comes through. Layer of creamy, beige foam, which disappears to a small layer. The aroma is good. What you can smell is a delicious hoppy smell. You can also smell chocolate, burned malts, a bit of alcohol, and roasted malt. The taste is really delicious. It is bitter, but not too bitter. You really taste the roasted malt, with a bit of a sweet taste, just a little bit. Also a chocolaty taste. Bitterness of the burned malt and hops. The beer has a more bitter aftertaste, where the bitterness of burned malt and the hops are present, which tastes very good. The alcohol leaves a warm feeling in my mouth and throath. The carbonation is exactly right, it is just a little bit, which is good for this beer. The body is also good. Good, full body. It feels really soft, which I like. Overall, this is a really good and delicious beer, with a good bitterness of the hops and the burned/roasted malt, but not too bitter. The aroma is good but can be a bit better. But overall, this beer is really good and delicious and I really enjoyed drinking this beer! That?s why it gets the total score of 4.4

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 14/feb/2014. 7/4/8/4/14.: 33cl bottle @ Rooie Dop Fab Friday. Black color, very small brownish head. Aroma coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon or konyak notes, slight dark fruity flavor, and of course roasted malts. Taste light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Slightly sticky texture, low carbonation, moderated bitter finish. Strange that I feel some kind of bourbon side taste however this is not the bourbon barrel aged version.
22/03/2015. 8/4/8/5/16: finish is tons of chocolate and hops, light dried fruits.
