Clear dark brown beer, small creamy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: very malty, grains, hay, cow fodder, caramel, bit sweet, malty. MF: lively carbon, medium body. Taste: malty, grains, bit sourish, malty, caramel, bit greenish, hoppy touch. Aftertaste: bitter, grains, malty, bit sourish, lemony touch, some cardboard. Decent one!
Dark brown color. Big , tan head . Aroma of malt , bread and roasted caramel. Moderate sweetness in rich malty taste. Gentle, roasted bitterness at the end. I'd say it is a Dunkel , not a Shwarzbier . Anyway it's great ,classy beer .

Thank you Bartlebier! 355 ml. bottle split post Bruges Beer Festival 2017 @ train station. BBF 5 JUN 2016. Black, creamy tanned head. Nose is thick soy sauce & grains, mocha, herbal coffee grounds. Taste is lightly metallic upfront, herbal, thick very sweet soy sauce, worth, grains, bit umami. Body is thick, soy sauce. Bit too thick with heavy soy sauce character, almost faint soy sauce but still pretty decent especially considering the age of this. kraddel (9422) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2017

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with slight reddish tint, large foamy beige head, roasted malt aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet roasted malt taste, smooth medium thick body, abrupt finish with creamy aftertaste. Very tasty and smooth. Idiosynkrasie (8318) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2016
355ml bottle [Thanks and a heartly "sapere aude!" to the Old Belgian philosophe des lumières Pierre Bartle (pron. Bayle) for this 1554 (Renaissance?) brew!]. Opaque, darkest brown colour with ruby glimmer and small to average, thick, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma, hints of treacle and pumpernickel, a nuttily touch. Taste is mildly roasty dark malty, minimally ashy, some cola and treacle sweetness in the middle part, again more roasty, minimally ashy and mineral finish, chocolately interludes throughout; full body, slightly viscous texture.

roasted malt, chocolate. Full-bodied, tad sweet. for some reason i wasn’t a huge fan on this, and i dont remember why, will have to try this again in the future Ron (4290) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a medium, short lived, beige head with lace. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate. Sweet flavor of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a dry, coffee finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Smooth and very drinkable. Suprised me how good it was. KevinReddirt (248) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Filled into a well-used New Belgium globe glass. Appropriate. Possessed of a black body with a tan head that dissipates promptly. A whiff of black licorice and blackened toast. Malty taste followed up by raisins and dates. Something earthy at the finish. I like stouts considerably, this is along that line. Not at the top.
