Bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt. Sweet malty flavour, nutty chocolate, smoky porter. ebone1988 (2074) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Aroma is roasty, chocolate, earthy hop, bready, slight coffee, pretty nice. Appearance is dark brown reddish, light brown head, mostly clear from what I can see. Taste is roasted malt, slight cocoa, bready, earthy hop, coffee, I’m a fan. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, nice bready roasty aftertaste. Overall, very very good. ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Very nice porter like beverage. Chocolate malt to keep the sweetness in check but not overwhelm it. Good malty texture. Aroma is pretty muted. Good beer, easy to drink. Not a light affair however. bigben873 (260) - Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2017

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 (8741) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2017

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.
