UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Hazy brown with a small beige head. Earth, mould, caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor is mouldy and sweet. Medium to full body. A nice one. Rating: 7-3-7-3-14-3.4. 061028

Bottle. It’s a clear, brown beer topped by a dense, beige head. Brown sugar, some tea and roasted malts on the nose. The flavor is of the sweet kind, with roasted malts, brown sugar and some tea. Medium to full body, quite sweet. A decent beer indeed, but nothing extraordinary. Sort of mixes with the crowd. 091127

Bottle. Dark brown almost black color with a firm beige head. Nose is roasted with chocolate (dark and bitter) and coffee, some hops as well. Taste is roasted and malty with coffee, chocolate truffels (the ones that are rolled in cocoa) and raisins. Rather bitter hoppy character as well.

Draught at "Den Tatoverede Enke". Very dark, almost black - light brown head. High malty, coffee, red berries, light sweetness, nice body, dark bread, nice hopped. A bit like fresh baked dark raisin-bread and a cop of coffee.

Listed at 8.5%. Best by 08/23/2008. The beer pours to a very deep glowing garnet body with a tall fluffy light tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is dry roasted malt and a lightly soapy yeast. The flavor is dry and lightly roasty. Sweet. Light licorice, chocolate, herbs, yeasts. The palate is smooth, tart, nice texture.

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.
