Darker brown with a mid sized off white head. Aroma is bready, roasty with a touch of bitter dark choclate. Flavour is thinner with some yeasty notes and very brown bready. Finishes short and simple with some earth.

Reminds me of a milk stout. Some chocolate flavors and lasting too. Very well done.

Beerman6686 (5053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of lightly roasted malt, Belgian yeast, dark fruit. Flavor similar, like a hybrid beer of.sorts, reminded me of hell hath mo fury.

SG111 (407) - New York, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours black color, small had, little lacing. Aroma is cherries, fruit, and malt. Flavor is malty, cherries, little bit of fig, and some notable Belgian qualities. Not much in the way of hops (which is notable b/c RR does hops really well). Not bad. Not exceptional (like any hoppy beers RR does).

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Roasty and full flavoured for the style. Hops not particularly noticeable but then again this is styled as a ’Belgian Black’. Good depth of chocolate runs right through the palate.

Draught @ Russian River, Santa Rosa, CA

Pours dark reddish brown with a smooth head. Aroma of earthy notes, malts, yeast and some ripe fruits. Taste is smooth, sweet syrupy, roasty and earthy with some malts and yeast. Finish is smooth, hoppy and roasty with some syrup, earthy notes. A bit strange, feels like a brown ale.
