A fairly stark effort with edges, bitterness, darkness but not a lot of sap or juices. Instead there is ash and a lught tar element.
Reasonable success. tderoeck (11096) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2017

Brune foncée, col fin blanc-cassé, disparaissant vite, doré au verre.
Arôme assez monodimensionnel, avec un effet renforcé de malt, presque de sauce soja - plus accompagnement de fruits noirs.
Palais est malté, épais, collant impression de sauce soja. Fruits noirs avec un effet de pomme caramélisée. Côté levure champenoise pour augmenter l’effet de l’alcool. Le tout semble surfait et un peu brouillon. rdixon77 (3138) - Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2017

Clear dark black brown color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, cookie, molasses, chocolate, sweet malt, light nutty. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, soy sauce, chocolate, nutty, dark malt, sweet malt, sugary. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat, finish feel is light alcoholic. 
Bottle at a tasting. Great amount of dark and dried cherries and alcohol and roasty chocolatey malty complexity. Quite balanced and moderate in body, light in carbonation. Lacking some complexity, especially considering the ABV, which is hidden well. Cuso (8960) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2016
