DocLock (8697) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle from State Line. Pours dark brown/blackish with 3-finger light brown head. Nose is dry roasty malt, chocolate, nuts, brown sugar. Tastes on the dry side of the stout spectrum initially, having notes of dark malt, mild rauchy notes, mild cherry notes, and brown sugar and nuts. Fairly complex throughout, and the bottle I had stayed rather dry during its entire life cycle, with some rauchy elements coming and going. Not bad at all.

Yves (2557) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2008
Certainly a black beer with diminishing off white head. Malty aroma like burned coffee. Full palate. Finish is at first smoky then sweeter ending bit more malty. A very good one.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2008
ZBF 08. Pours a deep black color with a thin light brown head. Good aroma of coacoa and roasted malt. Good flavor of coacoa and roasted malt with a bitter finish. This is not an exceptional sweet stout, but it has the merit of being brewed in Belgium and itís well-done.
