Bottle at home. Murky dark brown pour, no head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, leather, bourbon, brown sugar and overripe plum. Flavor is sweet alcoholic fruits, some sweet malts, and nice smooth vanilla aging. Nice and well balanced. A bit flat though. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2012
Dark roasted malts, sticky toffee, pecan nuts and some forest-y hops. Heading towards imperial stout, but with its present, cheesy Belgian yeast it has a character on its won. Mild wood presence at the start, with more soft sweet malts from the middle onwards. Soft carbonation, bit sticky in the end. Looses a bit of interest after some sips though. Would have liked more hops or spice (although it would agreeably change this beer’s character). An enjoyable quad. Not cheap.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is roast, coffee, molasses, (burned) caramel, spices. Nice. Flavour is dry and roasty with coffee at first, followed by a caramelly molasses vanilla coating, roasty mocca in the finish. Very nice. MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2012
Aroma of vanilla, rye, wood and bourbon. Dark brown, small fading light beige head. Taste is vanilla, wood, bourbon, raisins. Quiet dry. Disappointing body. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2012

Strong raisin aroma mixed with a hint of madeira, chocolate and vanilla. Deep dark red/brown, beige head, fair lace. Very sweet, light bitter, light salty, raisin, laurel, madeira (not dominant). Very sticky, light warming, medium body. Flavourful, easy.
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Bottle via trade with Andrejes. Drank this beer on the last night of my trip, paired with some Holy Grail Kush. Dark brown pour with small head/lacing. Aromas of grapes, plums, brown sugar, fig juice, and malts. Taste is boozey malt forward with marshmallow, cherry, plum, candy sugar, bourbon. Reminded me of a barley wine and belgian strong hybrid. Easy to drink for 9%. Really an excellent beer. 77ships (11605) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2012
Thx. to the Gentlemen who shared a 33 cl. bottle of this @ Borefts - sampled. Dark brown - tanned head. Smells of nuts, grains, mocha, burned coffee, mellow with some oak and tad spirit. Bit odd flavoured and not too strong of sweet mocha, milk chocolate, grains, roasted coffee, wood, toffee fruits, vanilla - bit on the thin side - bit odd but enjoyable - and way better than their stout MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. A dark brown, almost black colored beer with a small, tanned head. Aroma is full of molasses, caramel and malts. Flavor is spiced sweet and syrupy. Thick mouthfeel, nice sipper. deanso (10355) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - SEP 7, 2012

bottle splited by the gollem ( antwerp) thanx guys !
number 217 of 2500
scent is whiskey-ish, WAY to strong.
tastes aged ( well, deuh ! ) vanilla, butter, goes in quite good but the scent stops me a bit...
there is an aftertaste but its very small, and that would be the butter again. stays longer than you expect, but again, it isnt very prominent
