Borresteijn (7608) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2016
On tap at Gollem’s Proeflokaal. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts, liquorice, hint of smoke, hint of leather, quite malty. Flavour is sweet, malty, liquorice, salmiak, dark fruits, some roasted malts, bittersweet finish. Medium bodied. Belgian yeast character is quite prominent. Would really categorize this as a BSA (with a little extra roast). andrepintado (3757) - Porto, PORTUGAL - JUL 5, 2016

Sampled from tap at the Oedipus International Beer Festival 2016. Clear, deep red to black with a beige head. Sweetish, moderately roasty-malty aroma of chocolate, sweet coffee and some licorice. Sweet, slightly roasty-malty taste of caramel, chocolate, sweet coffee and some licorice, followed by a medium long, slightly roasty-bitter, a little yeasty finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice! demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Black in color with a short lived tan head. Aroma is roasty and slightly sweet. Flavor follows with earthy notes as well and slight smoke. Sorta awkward for me overall. Wouldn’t purchase again.

0,33l fles gedeeld met lion. Zwart met een bescheiden kraag redelijk geroosterd met koffie en cacao en zwarte bessen veel CO2 commonmac (1370) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Tap pour at Of Love and Regret on Baltimore. Deep black in color with tan head. Roasty malt notes with a slight smoke. Taste actually has a bit of dark fruit Belgian to it complementing the traditional smoke and roasted nut notes of a stout. Thin body with an almost black IPA finish. Aftertaste has elements of smoke that linger. Very tasty effort from a brewery that likes to take chances. I think with a slightly toned down smoke quality I’ll be even more impressed. In general, I’ll spin the yarn of this one for at least the rest of the evening. Fujimo2000 (205) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours dark Carmel with brown lacing. Good carbonation with coffee roasted fruit and a smooth finish. Very nice and easy to drink. shigadeyo (3820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2016
Candy roasted malt, hints of smoke; near black color, tan colorored; sweet, smoky, roasted and caramelized corn, dry finish; medium body, smooth; really, really good. retinadoc (243) - - APR 3, 2016
Draft. Dark brown color. Overly subdued hop flavor. Not much going on with this brew except for the relatively high ABV. Medium bitter finish.
