Dark, dark brown with rich light brown foam cap. Light "roasted" sweetness with rich bitter aftertaste. Very vell rich balanced overall taste (I’m not a big fan of dark beers, but like this one really much) Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Densa e nera come la notte, schiuma medio-scarsa e poco persistente. Aroma e gusto sono un tripudio di malto abbrustolito, caffè, uvetta, vaniglia, vino liquoroso e nocciole, con un risultato più orientato verso l’amaro. Corposa, oleosa, astringente e di difficile beva, fantastica! zaf (308) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2013
scura impenetrabile,schiuma marrone..aroma lievemente fruttato,maltato,deciso..gusto troppo squilbrato a mio parere..amaro travolgente per una belgian strong ale/quadrupel..malto tostato molto accentuato.. The Etruscan (690) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 9, 2013
Light brown foamy full lasting head. Black colour. Aroma is malty with dark fruits, dark chocolate, nuts and earthy notes. Flavor is malty too with raisins, chocolate, roasty and light alcohol tones, ending in a bitter slightly earthy finish. Medium to full bodied. AndyW68 (1556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Ok. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma and taste is vanilla, a little chocolate and some raisin.

Bottle, 10.2%. Fruity aroma. Very dark brown colour, seems hazy. Small light brown head. Nicely roasted flavour, sweet liquorice, raw liquorice. The finish is creamy and roasted with a clean hop and roasted barley bitterness. Bamsen78 (5452) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy dark copper brown with airy light tan head. Dark atoma of malt and caramel with a distinct note of dried fruit. Complex taste of roasted malt, caramel, fruit, liquorice and coffee beans. A nice thing but quite boozy. Ratman197 (14958) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, light carmel and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, milk chocolate, fruittiness and light vanilla with a smooth lingering chocolate finish. Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2013
appearance: Dark brown with a huge foam top. Great lacing!
smell: Dark choclate, ripe fruit, candi sugar malts.
taste: Sweet and bitter deep dark chocolate and licorice like. Some dark ripe fruits and quite a hint of alcohol. Is a bit like a stout, but sweeter and a very strong bitter kick.
mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Medium thickness, just like the taste suggests.
overall: It has a nice deep flavor of all the nice things (Chocolate, ripe fruits, sweet and bitter), but lacks depth and development. Also it’s just a tad too alcohol heavy tasting to really enjoy for me. Didn’t like it actually. They have way better beers. I do like the flavor profile but this one just doesn’t work somehow. I could throw it away and not feel bad about it. banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle from 2012. Darker than expected, almost black. Moderate carbonation in this bottle (it varies). Aroma of dark fruits, belgian yeast and grass. Taste is full, well balanced, with aspects of dark chocolate, oak (!) and some vanilla. It actually reminds me of barrel aged Yeti (GD). Bitter ending where you can taste the saaz-hop. Really good.
