Strange vibe for a Belgian. Chocolate and oak are the main factors here like prime numbers. Dark brown pour with good head and lacing. Bottle. PhillyCraft (8425) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2017

The bottle was 7 years old but all things considering I think it held up really well. cfrancis (3668) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2016
Nice surprise this is. After sitting on it so long. Pours black with a moderate brown froth. Aroma is soft nuances, vanilla, spice, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is velvet mouthfeel, big vanilla and spice hide the roastiness and just smooth everything out. Dry palate, I really like this. Hoprider (811) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2016
