Guess I never had this so grabbed a bottle probably a tad old. Browner pour. Nose is burnt coffee. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, cofffee ground, earthy, prunes, licorice. Creamy mouthfeel little burnt toast on finish. tapefuzz (528) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 15, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2017 12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma is somewhat metallic, yeasty, and with a little coffee coming through as it warms. Taste is molasses, chocolate, some coffee, a little dark fruit, a hint of toffee, and a good amount of yeast. A touch of pepper. Lightly roasty with a bitter hop finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A little watery but a pleasingly oil mouthfeel overall.

Room-filling aromas of yeast malt and licorice. Pours a deep black brown with a thin tan head. Big flavors of sweet coffee and chalk well balanced. Mild carbonation with an oily mouthfeel. Complex with a nice distinctive style. Very good. thepatrickman (1347) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. This is a very complex beer -- it’s got some similarities to a Dubbel, with a raisin bread sweetness that reminds me of some of the best Belgian dubbels, but it also has a roasted malt character that reminds me of Guinness. Fruit esters from the yeast, before it finishes quick and clean. It’s almost like someone brewed a stout with berries... Larry_Duffman (535) - - DEC 14, 2016
I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours dark brown with a fluffy, beige head and lacing. The aroma is roasted coffee and dark fruit. The taste is coffee, raisin, some chocolate, and spice. There’s less chocolate than advertised. I don’t mean that as a bad thing though. It’s really smooth and nicely balanced. I like the Belgian twist to this. It sets it apart.

Tap pour at Blaze in Bar Harbor, ME. Pint glass. Black with nearly tan head. Half finger. Aroma of dark fruit blended with roasted nuttiness. Hints of smoke and chocolate as well. Taste reminds me of a Belgian dubbel combining forces with a traditional stout. There is a definite tart, Belgian raisin and plum influence. Dark chocolate bitterness comes in at the end. Assertive aftertaste that lingers. Very enjoyable beer. Bet on black. bigben873 (257) - Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Joint oUT of my comfort zone with a Belgian, but pretty good without the sweet Belgian flavor. stef73 (620) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
