Poured deep dark brown with a thick beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and booze. Full body, flavour as the aroma, very chocolatey and roast malty with a hint of mocha. CraftBeerNick (3225) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Tap at De Wildeman, 19th December 14. Aroma is full on, the taste is upfront liquorice, chocolate, molasses tar, slight cognac, could have used a touch more. The palate is warming, thick and luscious. Very classy. Served with a complementary side of dark chocolate from the bar, nice touch PotjeBier (3995) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2014

Drank as a draught. Very strong and very good. The taste is a bit sweet, almost like that of a barley wine. There’s some chocolate in the taste too. madmitch76 (27432) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
