Oily black looking with a huge brown head that basically climbs out of the bottle and if youre lucky into your glass. Looks like a stout that could only come from Belgium. Aroma is sharp roasted malts with notes of coffe and dark bitter chocolate. Flavour is more complex with notes of dark dried fruits, sharp slightly acidic coffe which adds to the drinkability. Body is extremely slick and not as fizzy and lively as the head would lead you to belive. Very flavourfull, alive and intense.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Opaque brownish black beer, with humongous dense light-tan head like the froth on a good espresso except, as I said, humongous.Aroma of yeast, dried fruit, some slight alcohol, and an inexplicable woodiness. Flavor is full of dried fruit and some chocolate, with a typical Belgian yeast funk and grassy hops that contribute little bitterness. I taste suprisingly little roast or alcohol. Voluptuously full-bodied. By far the best beer Ive had in a while.

Very dark brown color with a medium light brown head. Strong coffee, belgian candy sugar, chocolate, malt and bourbon aroma and flavors. Fairly thick feel with a slightly dry finish. Very nice!

OminouSC2 (521) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
Dark roasted malt aromas with coffee and some cacao. Taste is a nice bitter-sweet moment, just like that feeling when the glass is empty way too soon. Some alcohol taste during the finish.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Pours very dark brown with a thick sea-foamy tan head. Slightly sweet aroma of chocolate, with very notable alcohol, some spicy notes, and a nice coffee undertone. Flavor is very musty, and fairly tart. If it werent for some of the other reviews, I would think that I had a bad bottle. Other than that, there is just a hint of coffee and bitter bakers chocolate underneath. Palate is medium, and viscous, with some chocolate lingering in the background. This one just wasnt for me, the tartness really threw me off, and there didnt seem to be any real structure.

(Bottle at Fynske ldage) Opaque black and a thick beige head. Aroma like black rock candy. Flavor is smoked with a sour note. Lacks some sweetness.

Moolesen (516) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Black with a brown head. Coffee nose which also is very present in the mouth. Very high carbonized. Disturbing., simple too much. After some rest I tasted it again, and now the chocolate and coffee flavours are much better. Medium length.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours black, with a tan head. Smells of rasin, brown sugar, roasted malt, bread. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, with a strong espresso bitterness that lingers, with lots of roasted malt flavors. Full bodied. Lively carbonation. Texture is oily. Finishes dry and bitter.

LearninBeer (514) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2006
The aroma was very interesting, smelled toffee, honey and a hint of coriander (or something like it). The appearance was frothy and creamy with a light brown head. The lacing was very good and the head was mostly diminishing. The body was cloudy and the hue was Black. The initial flavor was sweet and the finish was sweet and bitter and long. The body was medium, the texture was creamy and the carbonation was soft.
