McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 15, 2015
Copper-brown ruby-red with a frothy dark white medium head. Aromas of toast, resin, traces of raisin, with hints of wet earth, nuts and light herbs. Some livelyness opens to a thin-slick texture and a medium body. Light resinous herbal toasted-malt sweetness with a light astringent bitterness which is building up. Medium lasting light sticky finish. McSherman (654) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015

Deep brown color with tall beige head, aromas of dark chocolate and plums, good carbonation, oily texture, chocolate finish, not bad but lacks something LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Nice classic Belgian beer. Beautiful dark brown colour. Interesting earthy and metallic nose with hints of licorice. Palate is a bit weak compared to the nose but it is nice. Carbonation is almost flat which makes it tastes a bit more British than Belgian in a way! Theydon_Bois (19778) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014

33cl Bottle from Prik&Tik Pauwels. Deep dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of a dry stout, coffee and cream, not sweet, dry, liquorice, hint of plums in the back. Flavour of dark fruits, hard-roasted malts, coffee and cream, some caramel, quite dry, bitter, coffee, light earthy. Light-bodied, firm carbonation. A dry stout imho, reminded me of some of the Guinness variations (e.g. Indonesian), just a bit sweeter. Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
Winter ale with off-white, creamy but not very thick foam and very dark ruby brown colour, near black. Aroma of raisins, coffee with milk, cacao powder, cinnamon, pepper, dates, toast, sherry. Taste a rounded, supple maltiness, candied fruits, faintly sweetish, bit yeasty, evolving into a full roasted bitterness that lasts long and hides the hops a bit, mouthfeel rather thin. Apparently a tribute to Theakston’s Old Peculier but the roasted bitterness makes it more of a dry stout or even a porter than any type of real English ale in my opinion. mikske79 (1668) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 6, 2014
Niet veel smaak aan, een tegenvaller van formaat, net als het blonde biertje. Jammer. prawlie (1611) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle from Brussels. Black with a slight bubbly head. Roasty, lightly bitter, with a pleasant dark malt aftertaste. Light and chocolatey. Gentle chocolate roast aroma with a hint of spice. ClaudeB04 (405) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle, small head, dark colour, reveals a lot of flavours if you don’t drink it too cold.
