Bottle. Dark brown with a a beige head. Aromas are chocolate and earthy, peaty coffee with vegetable and plastic. Flavours are sweet and spicy with thick chocolate on the palate. Lightly metallic with light alcohol burn. A bit thin in my opinion. TBone (17435) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 19, 2009
Bottled (CK, BBE 2009).
Dark brown color, good beige head. Spicey aroma with ginger, black pepper and rubber, maybe a bit ashy. Medium-bodied. Caramel malty, spicey, a bit chocolaty flavor. Spices are odd and exotic, black pepper is the closest guess. Nutty and ashy too. Not my cup of tea. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2009
Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Deep ambery brown, close to black, colour. Mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, nuts, some spices and dark fruits. Flavour is roasted malts, liquorice, some fruits and also quite nutty notes. Whoa! Extremely nice beer. Smoked wood in aftertaste. Borresteijn (6962) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle at WBF ’09 Gouda. Brown amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, a hint of smoke, some spicy sweetness and fruitiness.

Rich brown, small light and persistent head. Very rich and interesting roasty aroma - plenty of fruity esters - dark berries. Slightly savoury too - soy sauce perhaps. Soft palate, pleasant carbonation. Quite full bodied - mostly richly roasted malt, but other stuff going on in there too. Hard to put my finger on what they are though. Hoppy taste is quite a spike, but mellows for the finish, and doesn’t build up over time, unlike some others do. Ah, now I’ve worked out what zouthout is, the burntness and the soy sauce saltiness might point to liquorice. Covers the alcohol very well. A great combination of the simple (it just tastes great) and the complex (it’s full of details), and really pressing my buttons.
Bottle. [thank you, Skortila/Caesar]fonefan (48634) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Pours deep, mahogany red with a wonderful, creamy, off-white head. Complex fruity aroma, lots of dried fruits (raisins, plums, apricots), some chocolate, light liqourice, some vanilla and light berry notes. Soft carbonation, perhaps a touch on the thin side. Great flavour, very weird, and very complex. Lots of black currants, blackberries, chocolate, raisins, plums and brown sugars.
