At Café Botteltje, Ostend. Pours cloudy black with a small, foamy, beige head. The aroma contains coffee (powder), milk chocolate & dark chocolate, roasted malt, barley & spelt, cinnamon (Belgian speculoos), liquor, vanilla & oak. It tastes medium chocolatey & malty sweet and light to medium roasted bitter. The finish is sweetish, yet toasty and woody at the same time. Some subtle, warming alcohol. Full body, slick/oily texture, fizzy to soft carbonation. Great execution of the style - something to be proud of as a Belgian! Flicker110 (2) - - OCT 18, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Probada junto a una tarta de chocolate. Bien, pero sin más. Le falta algo de densidad.

Aorma is roasted and a tad artificial, peppery. Taste is dry, cacao and roasted grains. Palate is dry and a tad wry. Very interesting palate.
Bottle from Les Fleurs. Light black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted fruit. Flavour is warm fruit, caramel, a little booze, vanilla and wood on a salty finish. Eructoblaster (4413) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle - 750ml. Pours a black body with brown glints and a thick, lasting, beige foamy head. Well balanced, complex malty aroma with chocolate, roasty, woody, and plummy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its malty/hoppy taste carries vineous, woody, and roasty notes. Ends with a robust, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.
