12oz bottle. I didn’t know what this was going into it but I thought it to be ok and maybe a bit odd in the flavor combo. Pours very dark brown/black with tan head. Aromas of raisins, dark fruit, belgain yeast, roast, coffee and bread. Flavors of dark fruit, yeast, roast figs, raisins and some chocolate and splash of tobacco. Body was medium and carbonation was as it should be. Solid, but not entirely my bag.
From a bottle. Pours cola brown with a tan head darker than most stouts. Nose is clove and spices like a Belgian but with roasted malts and chocolate on the back end. Taste is malty chocolate with little of the spiciness that was noted. A light mouthfeel and crisp finish. Like what Blacklist was trying to pull off but better. rougeau13 (3183) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Bottle. Very dark brown, nearly black, with a big resilient spotty-lacing beige head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, Belgian yeast, clove, smoke, and plum. Tastes roasty, rich, and bittersweet. Smooth medium body. Nicely done. jandd1983 (4577) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, chocolate and dark fruits with a medium body and smooth carbonation. Tasty. obguthr (6653) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2017
New plastic, plum nose. Black, thin tan head. Tar, prune, twigs. Full body, easy carbonation. Good, but really nothing special. Little Belgian yeast character. Ronavon (2) - - OCT 25, 2017 does not count
Really good! Thick and chewy like a bock but not too sweet. Lots of coffee flavors and aroma. Perfect for Fall/Winter

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2017 Pours a dark black with a big khaki head with decent lacing. Aroma of licorice and some dark fruit. Taste has licorice, prunes and plums, mild chocolate, some phenolic flavor and a hint of umami. Initially has some sweetness but finishes dry with some tannic character. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. ehaak26 (707) - - OCT 22, 2017
Bottle from Beers of the world. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and dark fruits. SpartanStout (45) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2017
This was absolutely solid, but I could never drink a second one. Coffee, chocolate, and cherry. jsporrer (1116) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and dark fruit. Taste is mostly roasted malts, some light coffee, and slightly bitter dark chocolate. Smooth with a mild tingling sensation. More similar to a light stout than an Abbey. Semi-sweet roasty aftertaste. Good but not great. Hopper8 (241) - Holland, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2017
This is awesome. It's got coffee and dark chocolate blended perfectly together with dubbel yeast and fruitiness. It's so good.
