alethol (106) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Draft at Borefts 2013. Disappointing. No where near the orginal. Pitch black with small head. Roasted malts, honey, vanilla. Misses carbo and therefore liveliness.

flip_soeperman (638) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
The original Bracia beer is much better. As there is a shitload of vanilla in the beginning of the taste, the complexity is overwhelmed and the beer loses it great original quality and becomes quite one note.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2013
Very dark reddisch brown like black in the glass. A bit hard to smell. Roasted malts, some wood and liqour. Not bad at all! Nice surprise. Good coffee at the end. Had to play a bit with the score for this one, cause the smell and looks didn’t match the taste for me.
