Draft pour at Chez Moeder Lambic. It has a dark dark body that supports a tall mocha head of foam that leaves behind sheets of lacing. The aroma offers up an inviting mix of dark roasted malts, pine hops and then a bit of sweet malts to round things out. The taste is similar delivering fairly rich dark roasted malts and pine hops that move into a citrus hop note and some chocolate malts that show up near the finish. Solid brew where the roastiness and hoppiness play very well together.

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is black with a big creamy beige head. Nice! Fantastic roasted aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, leather, nuts and also fruity hops and some soap. Much of the same stuff in the flavour with the addition of licorice and even more roasted flavour in the end. Slick mouthfeel, and a light to medium bitterness. A wonderful, rich, balanced and tasteful ale.

ZwartePiet (59) - BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2013
Noire à la mousse brune et cremeuse. Nez riche et complexe. Il est à la fois malté, houblonné et fruité En bouche la premiere attaque est fraiche et légère puis l’amertume prend le pas. Bien seche et café. Amertume bien persistante est rapeuse. Peut etre plus sur le malt que le houblon. Meme si ca garde un equilibre entre les deux.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Jet balck with rocky light tan coloured head. Aromas of raosted grain, resiny pine hops, coffee and some dark caramel. Flavours are dominated by the roasted grain and a feint nuttiness. Slight resiny hop bitterness to finish. had hoped for more.
