JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2007
Dense but small beige head over ruby-red shot, very dark beer. Very perfumey, almonds, alcohol & higher alcohols, sugars and roasted notes. Human sweat, sweet malts, liquorice, a bit of cypress flavour and loads of dark malts. Very creamy, velvety texture, well-bodied & alcohol warming. Sweet and thick. Not bad, but not really great beer.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 10/2013. Brune foncée, col beige avec une fine pellicule dorée sur le verre. Arôme de fruits noirs; cerise et datte, malt léger et une note de chocolat. En bouche, malt grillé, caramel et léger chocolat en poudre. Palais réchauffant avec ses 10.5%, pointe épicée rappelant la réglisse et laissant un fini liquoreux. Une pointe d’amertume houblonnée sur la fin.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brune with a creamy tan head. Spicy fruity spritz pepper and apple aroma. Cinnamon and some yeasty spices. Sweet cane sugar with vinous hints and some apple like sweet and tart flavor. Some alcohol warming that is well masked by the spiciness and moderately sharp carbonation. Decent brew.

330ml Bottle: Astringent aroma of light caramel, slight wood, slight nuts, yeast, and dust. Poured brown with a hint of ruby in color and a medium-sized, dense, tan head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Full of particles throughout. Sparkling. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of malts, candi sugar, caramel, yeast, light spices, light roasting, slight acid, and hints of tar, nuts, and wood. Medium body. Thin, lightly dry, lightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Thin, sweet, sticky finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2009
La Botteresse Noire. Brown color with a big quickly diminished, bubbly tan, cola like head. Dark caramel, coffee, cloves, and dark cherries in the aromas. Sweet dark malt start, lightly sour dark cherries in the middle. Quite airy, nearly making it feel thin, but enough flavor to hold it together. A bit metallic in the finish that seems to go along with the thinner feel. Bits of cinnamon and allspice. in the finish and into the linger. A dry fruit cake.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Dark brown with a small, mostly fading head. Grainy, dark malt and licorice in the aroma. Roasted-malty, licoricey flavor with some anise, orange-peel and other spices. Medium-bodied, smooth and medium-carbonated palate. Much like Ecaussinnes Ultrabrune, but with added spices. Very nice actually.
