On tap at Zeno’s. Rich caramel molasses sweetness. Very malty with a raisin and mild fruity hop nose. Cloudy dark copper-brown body with light tan foamy lacing head. Heavy watery body with light smooth carbonation. Starts sweet with raisin and plum, light toasted grains and thin molasses. Mild chalky-coffee bitterness and light warming after.

Aroma intenso de café, cravo e chocolate. Paladar levemente frutado. Creme marrom, bem consistente. O corpo é aveludado, ótima cerveja, além do nome bacana.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Brown with light, white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavor is raisiny, only a faint bitterness, some smoke, and brown sugar in the mix. Pretty thin but satisfying.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 This beer smells terrific. It smells kind of nutty and sweet. The appearance bears a remarkable resemblance to Guinness, but with a slightly less foamy head. The flavour is sweet and nutty too, with a slightly bitter aftertaste, but tastefully so. The palate is not overly complex and well balanced, not tasting overly of alcohol, as some stronger beers are prone to do. Overall: Quality brew.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, dark brown with an orangey hue and a dense, creamy, beige head that leaves laces. Sweetish aroma of dried fruit and roasted malt. Quite full-bodied with plenty of roasted malt, fruit, dried fruit and overripe fruit. Soft and smooth mouthfeel, but no bitterness to speak of. 281107

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2007
mmm, I like Belgian stouts... Dark brown, with ruby tints, lovely toasted tan head, a match for Belgian cocoa powder. Beautiful. aroma: soft, light chocolate, sweet, but solid...darker delights come forth in time, more maple and anise. Very nice. Taste: Full-bodied, nice chocolate flavor, sweet, then bitter, then smooth. Some mild astringency, but sweet cocoa is king. Lays long on the palate. Lingers in the memory. Exceptional and intriquing. Tasty, tasty, tasty.

Stine (1622) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. The pour is slightly transparent and of a reddish chocolate color. Intimately nuanced and wildly vinous aroma begins with a steady pulse of wine and red fruit; black cherry, raisin, currant and strawberry. Dense, layering into white chocolate, maple and honey, dry cinnamon and nutmeg spice, and dusty baker’s chocolate. Hazelnut, and musty hints of wet cardboard. Immense and deep, but never overwhelming, it sweeps the senses along with gentle strength. Tastes a bit more tepid, though still rich and intriguing; ground grahams, cocoa powder and plum skin. Bitter tannins, plenty of molasses, oats, and chocolate. Despite its boldness and unique character, it remains understated in deft and balanced presentation. Medium to full body, forceful in texture, with dry spice in a warming finish. Almost a butter rum type of heat remains after swallowing. Really quite interesting and a nice surprise.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Pours dark brown with red highlights and a short off-white head. Aroma was soap, funky yeast, marshmallows, prunes, and cocoa. Taste was much better. Rich chocolate, mocha, coffee, and toasty malt. It rapidly turns to cherries, yeast, and caramel/spun sugar/too sweet raisins. Interesting Belgian take on a stout.
