330ml bottles pours very dark brown with modest light tan head. Aromas of caramel malt, dried fruit and spice. Dark, heavy and layered flavours of liquorice, brown sugar, pear, herbal and spice characters and alcohol. There is a reason for the black label. This is a strong, full-bodied Belgian beer with a medium bitter finish.

On draft at the Earth Eagle, Portsmouth, NH. This is one classy brew. It’s restrained and complex, with a lot of balanced stone fruit and raisin flavors on the tongue before finishing surprisingly clean and quickly. Reminded me a lot of some of the great Belgian Quads (Rochefort, St. B, and especially Westvleteren).

BBHansen (898) - Køge, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2017
bottle @ parents. Appearance: clear brown with good soapy beige head and lacing. aroma/taste: brown sugar, anise, bread, light alcohol and light berry notes. Palette: medium malty and spicy aroma, average to light sparkling carbonation, medium to full body, average to notable sweetness, somewhat balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and an oily texture. Overall: ok anise dominated strong ale

Birra dal colore marrone. Schiuma, poco fine e poco persistente. All’olfatto sentori di caramello, biscotto e frutta secca. Corpo medio con le stesse note già manifestatesi all’ olfatto, biscotto, caramello efrutta secca prugna, zucchero candito. Una birra molto alcolica ma l’alcol è ben camuffato dalla dolcezza di tale birra. Un’ottima birra da meditazione.
