The aroma is chocolate, nuts, toasted malt, honey. The appearance is deep red/brown, translucent, off-white head. The flavor is chocolate, nuts, toasted malt, molasses. The finish is nutty, spicy, pine hops. Medium in body. Interesting and enjoyable. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
New DFH 750mL bottle. Vintage 2012. Dark brown color. Khaki, light tan foam. Sweet herbal aroma, nose of heather, spice, alcohol filled chocolates, chocolate covered cherries. Soft roasty flavors, some cola, coffee roast character, hints of chocolate essence , floral herb layer as it warms. Very complex, lots of layers (not in an ogre kinda way (well a good ogre)). By far, the best of the "off-centered" ingredient DFH brews so far!! Well done. Overall, herbal hodge-podge blended with an Abbey Dubbel.

750ml bottle from Liquor Loft. Brown pour with a small light tan head that leaves a ring. Aroma is dark fruit, sugar, honey, earthy, nuts, chocolate. Tastes are yeast, spice, banana, chocolate, floral, grain, brown sugar. Toasty vibe. Good balance. Not bad. brigg (692) - New York, USA - JUN 5, 2012
(bottle) A reddish-brown body with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Heavily sweet aroma, fairly noticeable alcohol, dark fruit (raisin, cherry), chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. Sweet dark malty flavor, cherry, nutty, prunes; light grape and chocolate notes. Overall malty and fruity. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Draft at pinnochios. Pours nearly black with a finger of white head. Aroma is very sweet and had a ton of honey in the nose. Taste is very sweet and does have red tea present. Palate is very smooth and the finish is alcohol free. Nice.

(bottle - 750 ml) Deep ruby red pour with a thin tan head. Amazingly complex aroma. Fruit, nuts, hops, chocolate, caramel, toffee... and so many more that I couldn’t pin down at the start. Fruity at the start of the flavor with a lot of dry malts and then even more fruit sweetness and a light touch of yeast spice at the end. I kind of liked it in an odd sort of way.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Pinocchios in Media, PA. Amber pour with a white creamy head. Nut, chocolate, dark fruit, yeast, and some sweetness here. Quite good. ACHops (1594) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours deep black with no head really. Aroma is yeasty chocolate malt. Tart Belgian yeast flavor, thin dark chocolate and green tea-like finish. Way more interesting than your average dubbel, but not worth the crazy Dogfish premium. kayres (888) - , Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Black with a thin tan head. Med body. Fruity aroma. Sweet plummy. But nutty. Sweet yeasty finish. Creative

Dark reddish in color.... Flavor is roasted malts, coffee and black licorice.... Interesting beer, was hoping for more, but still pretty good.
