35cl Bottle, thanks Harmen! Almost black colour, creamy light-beige head. Aroma of lots of green apple skin and endive, toast, liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet, liquorice, laurel, green apple skin, toast, caramel, veggies, light bitter finish with some roasted malts and liquorice. Light-bodied. Didn’t enjoy this at all.
1/15/17 (Chicago). 16 oz draft pour into chalice at Goose Island Tap Room ($6). Dark black pour, thin off white lacing. Toasty aroma and taste, accompanied by pepper. Easy drinking, overall good offering. Niko100 (2978) - Chicago, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2017

Bottles from Rehill’s, Jesmond, Newcastle and The Bottle, Stonegate, York. 2011 Bottle drank on 2017-03-15. Hazy black-brown in colour with a thick white head. It has a rich, sweet cherry and dried fruity flavour followed by chocolate notes and spiced, slight tart fruit on the smooth, warming finish. Still excellent! vandc01 (432) - North Branch, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Usually not a Belgian or Saison beer guy, but this one was ok..Nice peppery aftertaste - wouldn’t want too many but this was pretty good. ghostbeer (241) - Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Very dry with high effervescence and persistent head. Black and roasty with a good hop backbone.

Bottled on 6/11/12, an older vintage. Cola like appearance w big frothy head. Smoke, soy sauce, malt, and belgian yeast aroma. Almost no sweetness taste wise. I get smoked malt, slight dark fruit and lots of carbonation. Almost tastes like a smoked beer, in my opinion, which is not in my wheelhouse Luvystypotables (2039) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2016
A malt and hop aroma, pours a dark black color with a tan foamy head. Taste of smoked malt, dried fruit and hops. Pleasant to drink but not spectacular. nybol (2311) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
Næsten ugennemsigtig, og med et flot skum der holder i flere minutter.
Det dufter lidt af belgisk øl, som det skule være. Men smagen er hlet anerledes frugtagtig, med en eftersmag af noget fersken.
Ikke typisk belgisk i smagen, men god alligevel.

Pours a dark brown/gold color. Aromas of tart fruit, bread, hint of citrus, and yeasty. Flavor is malty/citrus. Leaves a yeasty hay/citrus aftertaste Andrew196 (1974) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2016
UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Color of a dark cola, whispy yet resilient beige head. Aroma of tobacco, raisin, wood. Somewhat thin on the tongue but the caramel, cherries, and toffee carried it. Pretty good and a great dinner beer but I didn?t get much Belgian out of the beer as the label suggests...some notes of Belgian yeast did emerge in the finish as it warmed.
