A deep dark brown ale with a thick big bubbled mocha head. In aroma, a nice herbal chocolate, Brett, coffee, lactic points, very nice. In mouth, a smooth chocolate with ground cherries, Brett, Orval notes, ligther bodied, but overall, very nice. Tasted Dec. 25 2011. Bieropholie Imports, BB May 2009....based on 2009 ratings, this benefited from aging. TaktikMTL (7739) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2011

Bottle at Bir & Fud, though a bit past its bb date.
Sourish beer, with oaky flavour.
Light body, cannot really cope with the oak aging IMHO. A gentle, smoky beer underneath it all.
This is probably both fresh from the brewery, but it is very hard to find, even there. I think they should brew a stronger version that can cope with the treatment. Ungstrup (37333) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 30, 2009
Bottled.A pitch black beer with sediment of yeast floating around under a lazing tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted matl as well as lighter notes of chocolate and coffee. The flavor issweet with notes of roasted malt, vegetables, earth, celery, and wood. Huge thanks to yespr for sharing.

750ml bottle, dark brown color, like a pepsi soft drink, with a small beige head, leaving a tiny ring of foam, roasted, chocolate malt nose, with a black coffee, dark bitter chocolate note, with a hint of cocoa powder, light oaky sourness, apple tartness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, fruity, winey, light funky, roasted malt character, with some dark coffee, black chocolate, faint burnt raisin, date flavors, with a hint of licorice, star anise spiciness, leading towards a watery, winey, oaky, fruity, chocolatey, lingering roasty bitterness finish. daniele (9021) - ITALY - FEB 18, 2009

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 In short: A very woody/oaky and slightly sour roasted stout. Unusual and drinkable.kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it through private importations.
The look: Near black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: A lot of barrel on the nose with oak and burnt wood aromas. Body is rather thin and fluffy. Taste is burnt dried bread, oak, wood coal, quite a bit of annoying lactic notes, some milk chocolate, flour, figs and oaky sourness of light-medium intensity. Distant reminder of Thiriez La Maline except that this one is not the train wreck that the Maline was. Well brewed but imho highly roasted malts and oaky sourness are two flavours that won’t work well together. This is like an imitation of an infected beer. All in all this beer is a well executed bad idea, like this catchy dance industrial song I recorded using fart samples.
750mL bottle, from secret santa 2008. Pours very deep brown, capped with a medium sized tan head. Musty aroma, with wet cardboard, vegetables, and apples. Flavor is roasty malt, earth, wood, and vegetables. Finishes with some mild bitterness. Very thin bodied. I didn’t dislike this as much as everyone else.
