diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2009
Bottle Deep brown to black, clear body. Creamy/fizzy, small head that diminishes fastly. Aroma of mint chocolate ("after eight"), molasses, caramel, medicine, ... bit weird. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour which is also quite medicinal but nice.

Bottle: Unclear, chestnut-amber coloured, small persistent beige layer; sourish-woody nose with a distinctive fruitiness and some liquorice underneath; sourish-sweetish flavour, relatively light bodied; lactic acid detectable in the woody and fruity finish. Pleasant, but nothing special.........

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2009
[33cl bottle] Hazy, opaque colour with a short tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly toasted malty aroma with notes f chocolate, anise spice and flowery accents. Sweet-bitter flavour, only light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Delicately toasted malty taste with notes of anise and licorice. Quite dry, malty and slightly hop bitter finish. [20.I.09].

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2009
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Rich reddy brown, small tight beige head. Zingy, but also a bit dusty, hoppy aroma. Crisp carbonation, but still a smooth palate. Rich malty body, heading towards dry ashiness, and some salty mature camembert too. Hops quite prominent, and leave a nice tingly finish. Good one, all the way to the end of the glass.

Bottled. Hazy brown color, medium off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, some dried fruit, molasses. Bit sweet taste, malty, some caramel and toffee, hint of medicine though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
A truly ugly beer to look at. I dont think Ive ever given a one for appearance before. Murky, faecal, reddish brown with a scummy saliva like beige head. Initial impression of the aroma was herby and spicy perhaps even with a little mint. Then a sweet, leathery, yeasty maltiness developed. The taste has that sweet malt, but some rather less attractive flavours as well, a sort of chalky, peppery, sour aspirin or indigestion tablet taste that I couldnt quite identify. Some background dryness. I really didnt like this much.

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Smell is musty, pepper, grains, flowers, vegtables, and malts. Look is brown, light brown with an off white head. Taste is sweet, malts, hops, and flowers.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle(donker) pours very dark brown almost black with a 2 finger light tan head. Plenty of floaties. Smells like roasted barley, spent coffe grinds, and thin alcohol. The mouth is super creamy and matches the tons of dark malt in the flavor. There is some smokiness and a little bit of chocolate. I love how malty it is. The mouth compliments the roasty flavors very well.
