Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured a nice dark brown with an average sized creamy head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. The aroma was heavy of roasted malts, a sweet doughy yeast with notes of molasses , raisons, dark chocolate and coffee. It tasted sweet at first and finished sweet yet mild with hints of raisons, brown sugar and a mild coffee note. Mouthfeel was very creamy in texture an medium in body with a flat carbonation. Overall and assume tasting brew!!

Poured out a dark brown with a tan head.The taste was caramel lightly spiced and overly sweet with a moderate bitterness. You wouldnt know it was high alc. Worth trying once but probably wouldnt buy again.

carlom (12) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
colore ambrato scuro, schiuma compatta e persistente, aroma poco presente con sentori di lievito, pera, coriandolo e pepe. Al palato malto tostato, iniziale leggero sapore ferroso lascia il campo alle spezie e al luppolo, birra equilibrata secca con finale amaro.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Wrażenie na pewno zniekształcone przez gushing, ktry się objawił po odkapslowaniu. W smaku czuć było wysokie wysycenie i teraz pytanie, czy to nadal efekt gushingu, czy tak miało być? Typowe belgijskie ciemne.

Copy and paste my rating of Bobeline Dark Label, nothing to see, just rebranding. Bouteille 33cl, wow, never saw this Huyghe beer coming thanks to its bottle design, likely alias as well, see Delirium Nocturnum. BB 09/2019 Ambre, col pais jauntre voire blanc-cass. Arme au nez typiquement belge, qcq pices en rtro avec un fruit noir de raisin sec et figue. Malt, multi grains. Palais reste trs belge surtout avec la levure, sucre rsiduel qui pousse le tout quais 9%, fruits noirs et sec; pruneaux, raisins, dates, petite touche mielleuse, pice de coriandre sur la fin avec une pointe de rglisse. Malts pils, cara ple et Munich. Amertume noble qui perce en retrait. Correcte, mais rien qui risque de redfinir les bires belges.

malushky (126) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle from Theater of Wine. Pours clear dark brown with large, tanned head. Warm and yeasty aroma, dough, hint of alcohol, herbal, fresh and pleasant. Taste is strong, malty, warm, dough, coriander, a bit alcoholic at the end. Very high carbonation, slightly bitter aftertaste, medium-bodied. Decent beer, but nothing special.
