Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2013
Neus heel rokerig met beetje metaal, donker bruine body met mooie bruine kraag. Opnieuw rokerige afdronk, vrij kort af. Wat bitterheid in de nasmaak maar al bij al vrij vlak

Pours a lovely ruby with a lingering creamy head. Aroma is mostly malt with a strange hint of roastiness.

Not much aroma or taste, but could be useful when thirsty. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Countbeer (5726) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle: Big fluffy vast creamy light tan head changes slowly into a vast and thicker lacing on top of a hazy deep dark ruby colored beer. Smell barley malts, toast, chalk, wood, brown sugars, cinnamon, toffee, darker herbs, autumnal herbs and a slight hint of liquorice. Taste is a very nice mix of barley malts, liquorice wood, chalk, roasted wood, some toasted/light roasted brown sugars, raisins, bitter, darker herbs, hops and a slight hint of yeast. Aftertaste has lot of malts with barleys, bitters, herby grass, light dry and some barley and liquorice wood toast. Medium carbo, soft bit blown mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture. Nice beer, pretty dark!

Taste: bit sourish, some caramel, bitter hops, some citrus, mocha cocoa powder. Aftertaste: overripe fruits, bitter hops, dark chocolate, something’s off. Don’t like.

kayres (684) - , Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Way way too carbonated. Head filled the glass. Dry yeast nose (maybe from the huge gushing head). Very clear dark brown. Sweet medium bodies, malty nutty and not a bad flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (8270) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2012
33cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Holy black IPA batman, this beer rocks. Brune col fin beige. Arôme est houblonné, malté avec un beau bouquet grillé sur des notes de houblons fleuri et herbacé, pointe de chocolat et café au lait. En bouche, malt bien présent avec pour moi toutes les caractéristiques d’une black IPA. Note cara avec en retrait un houblon qui vient rajouter une belle balance en amertume laissant des pointes de fleuri et de houblon judicieusement bien placées. Le fini reste sec rappelant les grains concassés.
