JorisPPattyn (9669) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2010
Huge, extremely dense dark-greige head over near-black beer. Coffeeish nose, with a flair of cigarleaf and speculoos (if a bit overdone, that one), very roasted. Bitter chocolate, coffee, coffeecream, Café Noir cookies, and a bit of Haagse Hopjes - but these with REAL hops (pun intended, sorry). Very slick, smooth, and warming. Alcohol obvious; creamy texture thanks to the persistent head. Another good I.S. - but nothing more.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2010
[email protected] Overly sweet and after an overwhelming start it looses it’s power quickly. Lots of chocolate and licorice, nicely roasted. After a while the sweetness gets annoying however.

tderoeck (8588) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2010
Pours a black beer, no head, just a dark beige small rim agains the glass. Smells very smoked, wood, oily and coffee. Taste is somewhat bittersweet caramel which ends in coffee. That’s pretty much the only thing that is left in the aftertaste. Burnt (not roasted) malts. If I want this, I can just drink some strong cold coffee.

Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown body with tan head. Nose of deep, dark chocolate. Rich taste of malts and caramel that quickly becomes all chocolate. Really nice.
