On draft at De Wildeman. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of red grapes, dark chocolate, and a bit of tar. More of the grape and chocolate thing going on in the mouth, but with a dry chalky note on the finish. Seems very light bodied for 7% alcohol. Average at best.

Nice citrus aroma and that beautiful thick stout darkish head. Flavor is a beautiful malty chocolate with a nice lingering aftertaste that is a little bitter.

Yeasty with herbal notes. Peppery with floral notes and a slightly oily palate. Warming alcohol and peppery on the finish. Good.
