Deep reddish black pour that lets some light through. Big coffee, some chocolate, licorice, roasted malts on nose. Flavor carries same as aroma with flavors trading prominence through finish - has a pleasant boozy backbone. Some nuttiness and a nice bitter finish. Medium and slick mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Bottle. Pours black with little head. Aroma is mild but nice, very roasty, caramel, dark malts. Flavour is quite complex, lots of dark malts, with a sweetish, bitter finish. Nice! Cant really sense the Belgian flavours....

Alpha10 (680) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2016
2016/06/25 - Pours a black colour with a foamy, khaki head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is yeast, toasted bread, roasted malt, coffee, light smoke and dark bitter chocolate. Taste follows nose; toasted bread, yeast, roasted coffee, nutty tones, earthy hops, bitter cocoa and just a hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with sharp carbonation and a toasty, bitter finish. Lots of coffee and cocoa with minimal sweetness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slubgob (315) - West Hartford, USA - JUN 23, 2016
12 oz bottle into pint glass. Looks like weaker coffee, off-white lingering head. Slightly sweat nose, suggestion of raisins, some roasted malts deep in the background. In the mouth, mostly light malt. Not really getting the chocolate. A bit of bitter in the back. A decent, but oddly sort of dull stout.

koleminer20 (2862) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Sample poured at Allagash. The pour is a reddish brown with a huge light tan head that falls to a film leaving all kinds of lace. The aroma is full of metallic malts. There is a light cocoa to it, but it is a little messy. There isnt a lot happening. The flavor is a little better, but not much. The malts are lighter and slightly roasted with a string metallic bit lingering on. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a light carbonation and slightly sweet aftertaste. This one is pretty weird, and quite disappointing.

katrinaez (1617) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Exactly what it should be. Looks like slightly flat coke. Roasted malt scent and some yeasty stale bready-Ness. Mouth is medium feel and not heavy in sugars, but enough to give rise to the taste buds. Taste is yeasty and roasted malt. Some nutty and earth tones. Tap

Bottle, packaged on 2/17/16. Pours an extremely dark brown with a slight tan head, moderate lacing. Burnt chocolate aroma, roasted coffee notes. Full bodied, velvety mouthfeel with a lightly bitter, tongue numbing finish. Excellent.
