Sample at Strong Ale Fest 2016. Comes black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and some dark fruit. Nice. SG111 (1937) - New York, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottled. Pours black, slightly ruby, tan head. Aroma is lots of dark fruit, chocolate, oak, Belgian esters, spice, bit of toffee, maybe vanilla. Flavor is lots of Belgian esters, chocolate, oak, Belgian spice, dark fruit, plum, fig. I like it. Pleasant. RRistow12 (918) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black with tan head. Aroma is robust chocolate with some caramel and toffee. Taste doesn't live up to the expectation. Some sour funk. Weird combination of the Belgian yeast and spices with the chocolate and coffee. Not bad but not as good as most Sam Adams beers.

Very balanced flavor which is more sour than sweet. Dark brown color with fluffy tan head. I can’t pick out the 13 ingredients!

Flarra Chapter. Mycket komplex doft. Choklad kaffe samt körsbär o läder. Lätt syrlig smak av körsbär choklad o kryddor. Sen kommer kaffet o en behaglig eftersmak. Trevlig. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2016
(750ml bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of mint, chocolate, raisins, and vanilla. Flavor of chocolate, plum, brown sugar, banana, coffee, mint, and caramel. Cajun (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle - Pours dark brown to black...creamy offwhite head. Coffee, chocolate muffin, nuts; spicy character, vanilla... hops in the finish. Somewhat sweet. Boutip (6439) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some chocolate notes and fruity ester from the yeast is pretty awesome. Taste is a nice mix of roasted malt with loads of black chocolate notes and some residual sugar with nice fruity ester notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Pretty solid take on the Belgian style stout IMHO.
