Dark color; huge creamy head, beige. Strong liquorice aroma. Good Strong Ale, with some more roasted malt dryness than usual. Roasted nuts; a lot of liquorice. Strong, dry ending bitterness. Very good as Foreign Stout, below standards for De Dolle. Beerhunter111 (20362) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014

Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, dried fruit and yeasty. Flavor is very sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish. A good mix between a stout and a Belgian strong ale. A bit too sweet though. 270511 Koelschtrinker (20242) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Voluminöser Malzgeruch, etwas alkoholisch, was sofort von Röstmalz überdeckt wird. Röstiger Malzantrunk, eine leichte Süße mildert die hintergründige Bitterkeit. Erkennbar hopfig, angenehm harmonisch, die Bitterkeit wird zum trockenen Abgang hin stärker.

Black with a huge head. Chocolate aroma, tar and licorice, some fruity notes. Licorice flavor, tar, dark chocolate, oily, vanilla notes. Quite mild hoppy bitter finish. Very good! harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2005
330ml bottle from the brewery. Dark brown/black with lasting thin dark tan head. This is an absolutely intense stout. Tar, liquorice and bitter dark chocolate on the aromas. God, this is intense. Almost primeval. Mouthfeel has the sour notes of a stout with some carbonation. Finish is like swallowing 200g of dark chocollate in one go. Definitely pleasant but it does feel as though you have been mugged by a lump of bitter chocolate wrapped around a prune brick. One hell of a beer though. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle. Nice big long lasting head. Aroma is thick with roast malt. Taste is likewise. Good long finish. TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2005
Opaque black, huge brown head. Aroma has black coffee, roasted malts and cardboard. Medium-bodied (hides 9 % extrelemely well). Dry, chocolaty with lots of roast.Overhelming complex flavors. Long roasted, slightly alcoholic aftertaste. This is like Guinness on drugs or Westy12 mixed with stout. Another masterpiece from DDB.
