Pours opaque black with a medium, creamy, beige head. Okay lacing. Aroma has plums, chocolate, raisins, light liqourice, mildly vinious. Medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly sweet, fat chocolate, light roasted, softly fruity, nice cocoa. Lingering malty bitter finish. Lovely.

"aroma very dry roasted malt, lots of vanilla, mocha. flavor is a bit sweeter still dry. can’t tell the sweetness is tangerine (but i already knew). the roasted flavors dominate the belgian yeast as well (maybe not so much as it ages a little...this is still quite young). dry, semi-sweet finish with a nice body (smooth and full). complex. i will enjoy seeing what this one does in a few months or a year or two..."

Growler at Peter’s tasting. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Light smoke and roast. Medium bodied, roast character, light smoke, almost cigarette butts and char. Mellows out a little as it warms. Big bitter roast finish and even more smoke. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2010

Bottle. Poured near black with a thick brown head. Aroma was full of malts, cocoa, caramel and roasted coffee. Flavor had cocoa notes and some burnt caramel. A hint of alcohol underneath and a kiss of vanilla and citrus. A bit thin on the tongue. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft… Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma is of charcoal, espresso, chocolate, light clove and a rumor of campfire smoke. Full-bodied and very silky with medium carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt and bitter with hints of spicy Belgian phenols. Reminiscent of a weizen bock. Lengthy, burnt, bitter finish.
