Bouteille de 750ml meilleure avant le 06 sep 2015. Même présentation que la To Ol sans frontière avec le «foil» blanc sur la capsule métallique. Merci Patrick. Bière noire avec une mousse beige. Au nez le brasseur a bien orchestré le tout, du chocolat léger avec une touche houblonnée florale. En bouche l’effervescence est quelque peu marquée par un excès de gaz carbonique mais ce n’est pas désastreux. Aucune trace d’alcool, cette bière se boit à grandes lampées.

750ml bottle enjoyed @ a friend’s cottage. Pours dark red brown with a small off-whit head. Aroma is floral, hints of coffee, roasted malt, carame and alcohol. Flavour is bittersweet. Medium bodied, thin texture, soft texture. Finish is hoppy and rancid with a little alcohol burn.

Kastanjebruin en helder, flinke beige kraag. Mout, hop, koffie, citrus, rood fruit. Iets te moutig. Alcohol weinig merkbaar. Zoet, licht bitter, licht zuur. Volle body.

Not really sure what kind of beer this is branded as, it has a nice hop aroma and finish, but there is a clear alcohol presence , but that doesn’t take away from it’s drinkability.

28/07/2015 @Centerpars Meerdal, 33cl bottle from a gift. Black colour with small head. Much coffee in nose & taste, some caramel, hops. Bitter ending. Just a bit too high on coffee for me, I would’ve loved more hops taste.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aromas of toffee, cooked sugar, smoke. Taste is toffee, light bitter. More of a dubbel without the yeast kick.

Hopkikker (20) - Lommel, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2015
Dark red to almost black color with light brown foam, aroma of citrus with fruity tones (first impression were green apples), ful mouthfeel, bitter sour, tastes like bread toasted on a campfire, caramel also, dry aftertaste, overall an above average beer in his style, yet not the best

Butelka, warka do 05-03-17. Bardzo ciemne, czarno-miedziane, juz przy nalewaniu widac oleista konsystencje. Piekna, gesta piana, ladnie zostajaca na szkle i powoli opadajaca. W aromacie od razu uderza lepka, gesta slodycz rodem z barley wine, Zaraz za nia iglaste, sosnowe, zywiczne chmiele, pozniej czekolada, kawa, suszone owoce... bardzo fajnie to wspolgra ze soba. W smaku wysoka slodkosc, wysoka goryczka, generalnie odtworzenie aromatow. pelne, lepkie, oleiste w ustach. Nie da sie pic zbyt szybko. ALkohol ukryty za slodycza, wyczuwalny jako element calosci, ladnie skomponowany z ta caloscia element. Przyznam sie, ze w caloksztalcie bardziej kojarzy sie z ciemnym barley wine albo mocnym ciemnym belgiem niz z BIPA. Ale to w sumie najmniej istotne. Wysmienite piwo.

A very nice hoppy black ale. First smell shows some freshness you dont expect with this level of alchohol. First sip of this black beer shows roasted malts with coffee and some prunes. It has a nice carbonization and bitterness behind this, it sizzles, and leaves your mouth wanting more. An ale that should be drunk slowly. And which grows. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Deep dark brown with a fairly big soapy head. Hoppy aroma but also a Belgian-style sweet taste.
