Bottle from Etre Gourmet, bought in 2012. (BF Nov 2012) Black with a large, nice tan head. Roasted aroma of chocolate, licorice and some light "candy". Similar taste. A bit sweet and with a full body. The finish was bitter.

(Draught at Little Delirium Café, Brussels, 26 Oct 2013) Black colour with creamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, black rye bread and a dry finish with a generous roasty bitterness. Almost full body, quite dry. Well made and tasty stout. Excellent beer.

Bov (10574) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 1, 2013
courtesy of Carole and Anna - black beer with a quite long lasting dark beige foam; roasted aroma of mocha and vanilla, some undefined spices; medium-bodied, pretty fair sweetness underneath; finishes dry and bitter with a strong spicy, medicinal herbs-like touch - a bit weird

PotjeBier (2001) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle @ BBF ’13, courtesy of Iluvatarmilan & Countbeer, thanks guys! Black color. Aroma’s: roasted malts, sweet, dried fruit. Lots of fruit retronasal, sourish, tar. Flavor is roasted, light sweet, medium bitter. Body is light to medium. Finishes with hints of tar, moderate bitter. Pretty good.

bierkoning (11219) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
From bottle. Black and opague. Roast, licorice and onions in the aroma. Sharp citrus flavor, roasty with coffee and licorice. Very tasty, but out of balance.

Theydon_Bois (12870) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle shared at Borefts ’13, thanks to Kamiel (Countbeer), 27/09/13. Light black with a thin tan head, floaties are evident. Nose is roast malts, slightly lactic notes, cocoa, earthiness, mineral notes. Taste comprises cocoa powder, mineral bite, roast malts, dark fruits, tarte fruit tang. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry finish. Ok - nothing I’d revist.

DutchDrebus (4815) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle @ Borefts ’13 thx to Illuvatarmilan (if I spelled that correctly). Pitch black coloured beer with a full sized, dark brown head (which looks lovely). Smells some iron, roasty and coffee. Tastes coffee, again iron, liquorice, slightly salty and roasty. I’m not a fan of liquorice taste in beer, but this beer does it quite nicely. Medium to full body and soft carbo.
