Ratman197 (13444) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of dark candy sugar, toffee, tobacco, earthiness, light fruittiness and a hint of spice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of toffee, tobacco, earthiness and fruittiness with a crisp lingering tobacco finish.

Slight aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.

Opaque dark brown/black beer with a medium brown/dark brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Tastes like a chocolate fruitcake, with a perfectly balanced flavour. Personally I really like the Belgian brewers that dare to brew a roasted beer.

Plum and red grape skins nose, charred oak and currant underneath. Black, huge tan head, decent lacing. Molasses, candied plum, prunes, black cherry. Undercurrent of tar, pronounced on the back end. Full body, moderate carbonation. Strong showcase of various dark fruits with some surprising depth of heartiness, well balanced. I really like these sorts of Belgo-Dutch-Danish stouts.

Bosbouw (2694) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Chocolade bruine kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, vanille, moutig, créme. Beetjje herfstfruit. Smaakt zoet, kers, tikkeltje zuur. Zoetig, vanille, alcohol in de afdronk. Best aardig.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
I hadn’t had a Belgian in a while it felt like - too much stuff being done here in Richmond alone that I can’t keep up with, much less getting all international. But The Wink had a box set with a fancy glass, so I just decided to go for it. Poured black, slight head, brown at edges. Aroma of chocolate, faint coffee, dark fruit, some Belgian yeast phenols. Flavor matched. Nicely stouty with a Belgian flare. Liked this, the ABV was well hidden.

JStax (5498) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2016
330 ml bottle poured into a chalice. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. Good retention. The aroma has notes of dark chocolate, molasses, and raspberry jam. The taste is moderately sweet with just a bit of fruity character. thick mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Very good.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Drukket på Lillehøgda 15 Mai 16. Svart. Høyt mokkafarget skum som stabiliserer seg lavt. Aroma av svisker. Smaken søt frukt. Plommer. Alkoholen skinner gjennom som et lett mandelpreg. Litt bunnfall.

BenL8 (73) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Bottle at trollekelder Ghent. Black colour, a load of almost mocha foam. Aroma is malty, roasty and a little sour. Chocolate. Complex with the dark malts coming through clearly. Flavour is sour, complex, even vinegar acidity coming through a bit. Malt comes through but doesn’t outweigh the other flavours. Dry finish. Very interesting beer.
