Geur is niet heel sterk. Wat mat. Het ruikt eerst wat moutig, als geroosterd brood, Caramel kruidig en later komt t wat meer los met wat rood fruit. In de mond zoet, nectar achtige body. Afdronk is kruidig, koffie en caramel en later duikt er wat rood fruit op. Geur valt me tegen. De dronk is lekker. Mooie balans van krachtig en fris. Fijn bier.

Evilman (53) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2016
A very nice one, I thought it was surprisingly light in mouth with a tasty head. You’d recognize directly the belgian origin, a tradermark that can’t trick you in any way, with a very specific taste but beside that, i’d recognize this one more than some others, which is a good point. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Icedwarf (1159) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en zoet, karamel, iets van geroosterde koffie en toffee. Bier is erg actief, bij openen komt het spontaan naar boven.

Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, torkad frukt, brunt socker och choklad. Stor sötma, fina smaker, bra balans, fin skumkrona och bra efterbeska.

AssKicker (166) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
Bue à la bouteille. Plutôt torréfiée au nez, dotée d’une belle mousse, mais douce en bouche, ce qui est du coup assez surprenant. Grosse rondeur qui masque bien le haut degré d’alcool. Grosse présence des malts caramels, houblons totalement absents. Bière agréable.

Bit lacking in aroma but a nice moderate dark fruity, boozy taste and moderate body.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2016
I think this bottle has been aged several years, but no date to confirm. From Pacific Liquor in San Diego. The abv is 8.2% in a 750 ml bottle with a raised decal on the dark brown glass. First class appearance, dark brown with a reddish hue...sustaining, creamy, tan head with a blanket of lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, cherry, raisin, bubblegum. Very similar to a doppelbock in many aspects. There is a slight chocolate presence. Smooth, sweet and fruity finish. Would repeat.
