Bottle. Doughy yeast aroma, also vinous. Very dark brown colour, seemingly clear. Very unstable head. Roasted flavour, a little sweet hoppiness, dusty. Roasted aftertaste. Dry start, reminding me of blue or red Chimay, seems to soften a bit along the way. Coffee aftertaste. High carbonation. Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Dark clear brown ale with a sweet raisiny aroma and light chocolate notes. Rather flat sweet chocolate with light alcohol finish. May 1,2005 at 2nd KBC Festival, Den Bosch, NL. Christian (13823) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 1, 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.
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. KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
Hazy dark brown with medium off white head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel and coffee notes. Sweet flavor with strong coffee notes along with roasted malt, liquerice and bitter chocolate. Ends dry and bitter. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 4, 2008
The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. Courtesy of Fonefan/Brugmansia. Red mahogany and the head is nice and creamy. The aroma has sweetness, notes of roasted malt, raisin and candy sugar. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, hints of chocolate and the finish has a slightly spicy, light bitterness and hints of citrus.

Nearly black, vague purple shine; fine irregular green-brown head, reasonnably stable. Dark malts, cypress and a bit of alcohol in the nose. Very bitter, chicory-like taste. Retronasal again chicory and (stale) coffee. Not hoppy in character, unfortunately. Better bodied but thin texture. In the aftertaste & warming up, the beer becomes more spicey and the mouthfeel soupy. A bit thin, and a rather unpleasant chicory-like bitterness. Just some alcohol. Seen my former experiences with 3 Horne, my advice is; buy, put it in the cellar and re-visit in 3 or 5 years - bound to be better. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled - St Albans BF. Ablack beer with a good large off-white head. The aroma has some licquorice and a little roast. The taste is sweet with some butterscotch and a lactic character. The alcohol comes through also. Decent.
