Black beer with a tan head. Light roasted malty aroma with a spicy and fruity note. Quite sweet flavor with a vague roasted malty note and a spicy finish. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2006
Black coloured with a beige head.
Aroma of fruits and spices.
Very sweet flavour of spices.
Stout ? stanza (4) - SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2006 does not count
Pours with absolutely no head. Taste is sweeeet with hints of cheap red whine. I thought this was a terrible beer. Maybe I got a bad bottle, other people are talking about a head. I got none... thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 24, 2006
Dark brown, almost black, with a rich light brown - orange head. Sweet and a bit sour aroma. Flavours are sweet carame, modest liquorice and chocolate with a rather nice sour hints towards the finish. Medium carbonated, rather light-weighted. A subtle, sweet stout that impresses with its quiet complexity. cathschlag (48) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
Brun très foncé tirant légèrement sur le rouge. Mousse abondante brun-orange très crémeuse. Fines bulles. Le goût est un mélange de stout et de bière des Flandres. Plutôt ronde en bouche mais avec une forte effervescence à l’attaque qui ne convient pas à une stout. Odeur de raisins et de cerises.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled. Much dark mahogany color, nearly black one. Impenetrable and with a creamy capuchin head; much supporter and friable. Fresh and alcoholic scent with elevated perception of liqueur, scorched wood and coffee. Extraordinarily prickly and lively taste for a stout. Resolutely unusual one. Sour notes with licorice, bitter cacao and alcohol rmors. Elevated alcoholic perception. Slightly top heavy. Long and long-lasting end. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2005
Bottled. Very strong and specific aroma, fruity (mainly red berries), dark malts, but not roasted at all. Very black color, dark brown head, fair lace. Very very sweet start, red berries, honey, molasses, medium body that even thin in the finish. Seems to me like fermentation didn’t finish yet, too sweet. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2005
(Bottled) Almost black color with a medium, brown, a bit lemonadey-foamy head and some lace. Very chocolatey, sweetish and quite roasted-malty aroma with some acidity. Initially much like Plevna Shemeikka. Very sweet, sugary-syrupy-chocolatey, acidic flavor. Medium-bodied, sugary and a bit thin palate with lemonadey, hard and foamy carbonation. In a way interesting, but way too sweet brew for me, and not very balanced. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Beer #28 (I think) at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. Not really my cup of tea. Very sweet indeed. Full, but sticky. There’s some malt and chocolate, but the sweetness is simply too overbearing. More fruity than roasty.

Belgian Draught Beer Festival, Croydon, London. A bit thin and acidic for a stout. Some light roasty malt, but the acidity and lack of body mad it a little bit dissapointing.
