Sweet malty aroma. Pours dark brown almost black. Mild stout is a good desciption (written on bottle). Sweet, smooth, creamy good malt character and very little bitterness. Very nice.

Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Pours a nice ruby-brown with a small tan head - looks more like a nut brown or dark ale than a stout, but still looks good. Aroma of sweet malt, coffee & licorice, with a hint of toffee. Flavour has a very nice combination of a sweet, roasty stout and a full, fruity Belgian ale, with some nutty sweetness and mild bitterness coming together in the finish. A very tasty and unique beer that does NOT seem like an 8%er.

Tap@Oud Arsenaal. Smells like a meal. Dark chesnut - huge brown whipped cream head. Sugary malt base - candied fruit- doppelbocklike - light roast and nut. On the sweet side, but I have a sweet tooth and like brews like this. Fruity nose retronasal. Flattening oily mouthfeel.

Very nice nose of dark fruits,right up front.Then some toffee for a complex aroma that was very nice. I started drinking this too cold and whence it warmed up it was much better but it wsas more like a Belgian strong then a Stout.
