Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with rosé creamy head and smooth body. Aroma of roast and woods. Taste of smoke, leaves, woods, torf, malt and roasted barley. Light smokey touch. Due to the smokeyness not my kind of brew but apart from that not too bad. mike_77 (6660) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Black with a small cappuccino head. Light smoke and roast malt aroma. Similar flavour. The burnt malts deliver a long lasting bitter finish. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011
Draft @ PWBF’11:
Light brown vast foamy lacing on top of a black beer.
Smell hops, yellow fruits, malt, fish and spices.
Taste is a fresh mix of yellow fruit, light sweet, light liquorice, malts, caramel and spices.
Low carbo, full body and soft mouthfeel. Impressive. MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 3, 2014
Sueffig und schwer. Vorne mit Kaffe und einer milden Saeure, zum Ende hin jedoch geraeuchert. Und das killt natuerlich viele Szmpathien. Alles in allem jedoch solide. Kaffee, Roestaromen und gar Sueffigkeit. zvikar (6149) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 27, 2014

In short: The most peaty beer I’ve ever had. That simple. A fun beer.erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2012
How: Tap at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam
The look: Black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is very peaty, some earthy forest floor, a bit smoky. Taste is peat, more peat and then some more peat. Also plenty of burnt malts providing a harsh roastiness, some cacao powder and a cigarette butt sensation. This is probably the most peaty beer I have ever had. I enjoyed it because it was so over the top in a different way, but in all honesty it wouldn’t be something I would enjoy so much if beers like that were to become commonplace. This was like drinking slightly smoked earthy peat. Quite enjoyable because it pushes the ‘peat’ character to the maximum. This beer is to peaty beer what a Shlenkerla is to smoked beers. I liked it and for what it’s worth my wife absolutely loved it. My last beer of the night in Amsterdam, then it was time for the walk back to the hotel. And even if they don’t make drunk-staggering an Olympic sport soon I will not regret the rigorous training I’ve put myself through.
Almost black bodied, with an enormous head that generates brown floaties. Stroopsoldaatjes (Dutch carmael and butter candy)... Rich sweet toffee, caramel, dried figs, coffee beans, palm sugar and a hint of alcohol. Sweet, full taste, with a proper bitterness at the back. Oily mouth feel, with some fruity notes. A proper dessert beer! Well made. (33cl bottle, fairly priced) DutchDrebus (5982) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2014
Tap @ tap takeover @ van Moll. Pitch black with a medium to big sized light brown head. Smells roasty, chocolate, coffee and a hint of peat. Tastes chocolate, very roasty, peat, wood. Nice. Medium to full body, nice carbo. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2012

Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark brown with lasting tan head. Nose of chocolate and malts and espresso. Taste of dark chocolate, malts and lots of bitter in the finish. Quite a delectable little cocktail. Hats off.
@ PWBF 2011. The aroma has caramel, coffee, roast, fruits. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste has sweetness, bitterness, caramel/toffee, roast, coffee and is a bit fruity. Medium bodied. Nice one.
