(33cl bottle) Almost black coloured hue with a big and dense brown foamy head. Sweet and fruity nose with blueberries, caramel and floral notes on a light toast-malty background. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Good dark malty base with yeasty-fruity notes and burnt grains; dry, bitter-sweet finish with caramel and liquorice. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a very deep mahogany, bordering on black. Fine, sticky and creamy beige head on top. Aroma is quite burnt with a slight tart fruitiness to it. Relatively low carbonation and not that thick. Flavour is very roasted and dry, with cocoa and slight liqourice. Is really a pleasant beer to drink depite itís powerful roastiness.

Bottle@Home. Roasted chocolate and coffee beans aroma, on the sweet side but still ok, black currant and lactice notes as well. Black color, light brown head, fair lace. Sweet, malty, very roasted, coffee, bitter finish. Full for only 5.5% ABV and a sandy mouthfeel. Very flavorful and interesting. Reminded me of Hercule a lot.
