3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark ruby and brown color with a light khaki colored head. Teh aroma is very sweet with molasses and some milk chocolate. There is also some vanilla. This reminds me of a high quality hot chocolate. The taste is lightly roasted dark chocolate and raspberries. There is also some light coffee notes that complement the roasted flavors. The mouthfeel is thin and a little sticky.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown, big initial head faded completely. Very faint milk chocolate aroma combined with tootsie roll. Flavor had plenty of dark fruit, currants, hint of molasses, a touch of roastiness, chocolate liquor, and gran marnier. Once it hit almost room temperature, the flavor really was quite nice. Don’t know if this is really a stout, but who cares? Interesting Belgian take on the style.

Thanks Paul. Interesting dull ruby body with a silky tan head. Very perfumy aroma with caramelized malt and lightly roasted marshmallows. Flavor of dried cherries, chocolate, light roast, and a nice sweet finish. Good dessert beer with nice subtle, Belgian characters that defy description.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours deep bronze with a large tan head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, slight roast, and sweetness. Flavor is smooth, citrus, fruit, slight roast, yeasty. Good body, damn good brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2011 Dark ruby with a bubbly, light brown head. Malt and molasses aroma with a touch of alcohol. Sweet caramel, slightly burned flavour with a hint of port.
Re-rate on tap at Christian Firtal, 2011: Lots of dried fruit aroma, figs and prunes, along with dark sugar and a hint of licorice. Sweet, dark sugar flavour dominating, with dried fruit and a spicy touch. Slightly oxidized, but only in a good, vineous way
