The right beer at the right time. Dark and heavy with a warm depth. Hell, the devil himself would drink this at times of dark contemplation.

goozen (2721) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012

Abio (1518) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012

AshtonMcCobb (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2012
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours opaque black with a gloss that reminds of purple olives. There is a nice crema head to start, it then reduces and a very thin layer of lace remains. The nose has chocolate, nuts and raisins soaked in alcohol. The taste has more dark chocolate and raisins in alcohol. The palate is medium to full bodied with a big creamy texture and the finish is fairly elegant but the alcohol is a little too obvious. Overall, a good beer but obvious alcohol note is a bit too much.
