Gedronken @ bokbierfestival. Zeer donker troebel bier. Aroma is gebrande mout, koffie, hop. Smaak is mooi vol, zoet maar ook bitter van de hop. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a medium sized, beige head on top. Aroma has massive roast, malts, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Flavor is light bitter and roasty, full bodied. Nice and very well balanced, this is a good beer. Long, light roasted aftertaste, good stuff. TheJvd (1308) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014

Bottled, BB 20-02-14, large sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit, hint of mocha, dark chocolate. Medium bitter in taste, touch of biscuity sweetness. Wow, I was not expecting this. Lots of roasted malts almost turning this into a stout. Full bodied. Quite fruity finish. As I had no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.
