4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.75l bottle shared with BelgBeerGeek @ Kulminator. This one is a hard to see through- amlost impossible actually and it’s colored near black with a medium sized and lacing beige head. The aroma has sweetness, chocolate paper, dark malts, syrup and fruity blackberries. All in all quite a complex and really nice aroma. Hard for me to tell what genre this beer is classified as but it’s definitely really really tasty! Packed with sweetness without being sweet, dark, hazelnutty and malty, boozy dipped biscuits with sugar on top and raisins on the side. This was an extreme tasty brew. Thanks for the tip Vincent! 02.06.2012

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from 2010 bottle during the 10th Annual Day Before Labor Day Party on 09/06/2015. The beer pours a dark brown-black color with a medium thick tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lace. Aroma of malt, dark fruits and yeast. Full-bodied with flavors of malt, earthy yeast, berries and figs. The finish is fruity dates and plums in the aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Ooh, this is good. Pours very dark amber brown with minimal head. Aromas are roasty, dark dried fruits, raisins, like a good quadrupel but maybe a little fruitier than average. Flavors are really nice and constantly evolving. Starts with a pleasant roastiness and sweetness, into slight fruity notes and sourness, then a really long finish with a bit of bitter chocolate.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Raisin aroma and the booze almost pours up the nose. Rich red brown almost opaque. Thick on the tongue. Caramel that’s a little burnt and the raisin is now prune and rum in flavor. Glad it’s only an 8oz pour since you feel the bite. Tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked, bailed, and foiled. Pours a heavy dark ebony with a loose and creamy dark tan head that goes away. Big smoky dark complex nose, lots of dark pitted tree fruit but in a fleshy way rather than a sweet way. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Smoky, fruity, slightly tangy mid palate, showing sweet campfire and some tangy fruit notes. Long earthy fruity finish. Very interesting.
