Lekker donkerkleurig bier met een lichte chocoladesmaak. Redelijke schuimkraag. Drinkt lekker weg. Een aanrader.

mutz (556) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2014
Heel donker, kraag zakt vrij snel weg tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt goed, wat peperig, cacao, koffie, rokerig. Smaakt idem, beetje bitter, helaas een beetje waterig, niet echt maar het mocht wat voller zijn van mij. Als geheel wel OK.

fkoolen (239) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Pitch black, stable brown creamy head. Lots of roasted, woody malts in the nose and taste with coffee, cacao and vanilla. Aftertaste?s a bit dry, smoke and cacao linger. Lively mouthfeel with relatively high carbonation for a porter. Medium bodied. Enjoyable rounded porter.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle 330ml (BDLX)
Dark brown color, steady small brownish head. Aroma has toasted malts, a bit of smoke and tart notes. Medium-bodied. Sweetish malty, some tar and smoke. Light hoppy note. Quite special Belgian beer but it is of course brewed by Proef who know the stuff.

Maakun (517) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Thick black with nice creamy light brown head. Lots of smoke, quite meaty, toast, some chocolate and apricot fruitiness. Quite dry and bitter in the finish, medium bodied with creamy feel and slight watery towards the end. Quite nice.
