Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp. Dark brown with a big, creamy, light brown and lasting head. Raisins and plums nose, but with chocolate hiding just behind. The taste is raisiny, but there are roasted malts and cocoa powder gradually appearing. Recommended

Draught @ Ebenezer’s. Pours deep brown, almost opaque, with deep brown highlights, thin tan head on top. Aroma is faint, a bit of dark fruit and dark brown sugar. Taste is brown sugar and cocoa, quickly moves to more of a roasty note, with some excellent dark fruit and alcohol on the finish, with just a hint of sourness. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel.

Pours black woth a large head. Aroma is sweet malt, chocolate, and a slight bitterness. Flavor is smooth caramel undertones, sweet malts, bittersweet chocolate and a slight licorice flavor in the finish. Palate is smooth and a little watery but still rich. Alcohol is in good balance with the flavor. Not too bad.

Bottle at Oud Arsenaal, Antwerp. Pours reddish brown with a medium beige head. Prunes and other dark fruits adds a sugary thing to the malt base in the aroma and flavour. Some chocolate there as well.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle (Best by 09/02/09). Poured a reddish brown with a creamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma is sweet with a dark fruit and malt balance. The flavor adds to the sweet fruitiness with some spices and roast backed with light alcohol. Medium body with a sweet yet roasty aftertaste.

An interesting hybrid. Kind of an English malt character but with Belgian yeast. Roasted malt and nuts. Big frothy head and black in color. A nice beer, but shouldn’t it be an imperial at this abv?

Had 6/20 at Dulle Griet in Gent. Pors dark ruby caramel with a minimal tan head and beautiful lacing. Roast aroma full of dark fruits and caramel. taste is fairly complex with some vineous notes. Don’t know that I’d call this a stout. Pretty thick mouthfeel.
