Dark pour with hardly any head. Aroma and taste of sweet sugercane and many roasted spices. Bit too sweet to my liking but enjoyable.

EddyBeer1 (976) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2015
Brune foncée, effervescence moyenne-faible, quasi pas de col. Principalement maltée, léger caramel, un peu douce, vaguement épicée, manque clairement de caractère pour une brune.

Bière Brune de 9° brassée du côté de Waregem Bière douce mais progressive Aucune mousse. Odeur et Goût de café. Bière très foncée quand elle est regardée de face et très clair lorsqu’elle est regardée du dessus.

Flesje gekocht in Ieper. Gedronken uit een klein limonadeglas.... Donkerbruin van kleur, mooie kraag bij het inschenken die inzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt zoet en moutig, smaakt idem met een bitter randje. Doordrinkbaar maar weinig diepte.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy dark brown with a beige head. Caramel aroma with some roasted malts an a hint of honey. Sweet rich taste. Rich body and a pleasant long finish.

gizmo_ber (189) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2014
Pours a dark amber with light tan head. Taste is slightly honey/caramel with a roasty undertone. Overall not too complex in flavor and aroma, but very drinkable.

rikstar (1069) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv op brouwdag.donkerbruin met een royale schuimkraag. Zoete geur met alcohol en gedroogd fruit. Smaak is iets metalig maar vooral zoet met rozijnen. Body schiet iets tekort, niet ghelemaal mijn biertype.

KoNrRiI (614) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2014
Very dark brown color and a small, brownish head. Aroma is mostly composed of cheese, barnyard, and skunky scents with an addition of honey and malts - a tad unpleasant. Taste is a bit metallic, somewhat malty not really good either but much better than the aroma. Medium body, creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is sweeter and better than the rest but still does not impress. Overall a mediocre beer all the way through.
