500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a generous light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark pitted fruits with some candied sugar and hints of yeast and chocolate. Taste is a fruit and chocolate malt sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness and a dry finish. Definite presence of alcohol. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Tasty but not overly complex for a quad. Good enough to sample. Borup (14730) - Albertslund, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2013
Sample at DØE 2013.
Hazy brown colour with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of caramel, fruit, malt, spice, licorice and bread. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Draught. Weak aroma. Cloudy dark brown colour. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is malty and sweetish with a good bready note. Vinous touch as well. Flavourful and well-balanced. jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Black pour with foamy beige head. Basically like drinking a Xmas cake! Lots of dark fruits, syrup and brown sugar. Huge caramel malt backing. Lingering bitterness. Not my sorta beer by choice but lots going on here

Bottle 500ml from the local taphouse shop. Great malty beer. Aromas of caramel, cookies, and bread. Taste is sweet, with light sourness, and very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head. anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - JUL 5, 2012
Pours dark as Coke with a small tanned head.Aroma of deep red fruits, caramel. Taste is deep malty, spicy and some wood. Lingering malty aftertaste, with some liquorice and herbs. Full bodied, nice hawthorne00 (3990) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2012
Dubiously satirical bottle. Pretty much black with a light tan head that lasts. Quite surprising. Aroma of soy sauce, treacle, raisins, figs, prunes. Syrupy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sweet, bitter and salty, with dried fruits, singed toffee, spices, quite a lot of bitterness. Soy sauce less prominent than the first whiff suggested. Obviously strong, but not much heat from the alcohol - just a little with some sweet shop spices at the end. Not much like strong dark Belgian beers and kind of crude, but compelling.

A dark brown, almost black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige head. The aroma of zoet dark fruits with notes of chocolate malt with hint of spices. The taste is sweet, dark fruits, chocolate malt, a little spicy with notes of alcohol. Stew41 (2040) - Phuket, THAILAND - APR 28, 2012
Good solid old skool interpretation. Spice and stinky soy / vegemite drive the flavours. There’s a little milk chocolate and minerals to finish. Hides the 10% abv very well and this is quite quaffable for a quad.
