bhensonb (11368) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Aroma of rich dark fruit. Really fantastic. Deep reddish brown with a truly significant tan head. Starts with plum, moving to toasted malt, notes of chocolate, always an edge of sour. Substantial mouthfeel. There’s sweetness, but more caramel/toffee than malty. Well balanced with bitterness. Definitely not a Belgian candy treat. Just fantastic. I repeat myself. Justified.

Christian (11260) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
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

thewolf (11206) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle. Bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a deep mahogany red with a big whipped-cream-ish off white head with big bubbles and good lacing. Aroma is very fruity, with prunes, raisins and plums prevailing. Some yeast, strawberries and roasted malts as well. Nice full mouthfeel. Flavour is right the way, I want it! Vinious, dark fruits, roasted malts, slight tartness, lots of bitter dark chocolate. Some nuttyness and yeast as well. This is realy a very great beer - and should be a Foreign Stout in my book.
