Il colore è marrone scuro, schiuma totalmente assente. Al naso risulta subito dolce, malto, caramello, frutti scuri e liquirizia, con aromi che ricordano del vino liquoroso. In bocca abbiamo conferma di quanto percepito al naso: decisamente dolce e sciropposa. Gusto di frutta scura (prugne, uva passa, more, mirtilli), porta alla mente liquore alle ciliegie; carbonazione assente, finale asciutto. pivnizub (10905) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle:Deep ruby-amber coloured, a bit unclear, medium-sized tanned head; sweet roasty-bready nose with traces of molasses in the Background, sweet dried fruits as well; moderate to solid sweet and bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering fruity and roasty-malty finish, some bitterness, some alcohol, too, in the aftertaste. Pleasant and easy-drinking - regarding the ABV - strong ale... jandd1983 (4680) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2014
It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of malts, caramel, licorice and fruits. The taste was sweet and malty with some caramel, licorice, slight warming alcohol, plumbs and raisins. Good stuff. mike67 (1286) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2014

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a dark brown to black color and a large cream colored head with a lot of bubbles. In the aroma are tones of black chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts and liquorice. The taste is light sweet with a nice bitterness from the dark chocolate in the end. The finish is dry and a light bitterness is noticable for a while. A strong ale which reminds me of a stout, very well done.
