Drank 03-10-2015 during the Beergeeks @ Struise day. A very nice beer. Lots of alcohol taste, but not too dominant. Very pleasant, rich, sweet taste with the alcohol coming right at you. tderoeck (10195) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2015
12/IX/15 - on tap @ Struise Schooltje - BB: n/a (2015-1179) Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - AUG 8, 2015
Clear deep brown beer, no head. Aroma: very fruity, sweet, caramel, dried fruits, some pineapple, sour apples, alcohol but not very obvious. MF: no carbon, full body. Taste: WOW! Sweet start, caramel, dried fruits, some banana, bit hoppy, alcohol. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, alcohol, dried fruits, ripe banana, more alcohol, fudge, caramel, bit syrupy, some figs, prunes, chocolate finish. Just wow!
I didn’t know this one was from Pannepot, but that means the taste of the original is still there for sure. A nice surprise, if you like the higher ABV.

8 cl. @ ’t Schooltje. Black with no head. Nose is very big on alcohol, syrup, candy, chocolate, warming, bourbon, very big alcohol,… Taste is big warming spirit, licorice, chocolate, syrup, leaves, touch vanilla, brown sugar, cheap coffee,…. Very syrupy,… Surprisingly good considering the ABV,… Wonderful but hard to drink. Even a tasting glass was a bit too much. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2015

Pour from tap at Struise pours dark brown no head. Infused with intelligentia coffee through a real-time coffee rocket. Coffee is very straightforward, supported by rich caramel fudge and mocca. Sweet body with some alvohol, taste of brown sugar, chocolate covered toffeer. berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2015
no head, tears on the glass though. coffee coloured. aroma is very coffee forward, moccha, some grounds, very intense, vanilla, bourbon. taste like aroma, very alcoholic, alcoholburn, bitter chocolate, ash, vanilla aftertaste is really harsh. quite slick oily mouthfeel, almost no carbonation. too much alcoholburn for me, not as enjoyable as the double black which punches a slightly higher abv. interesting experiment though, the aroma for me was way better than the taste. hope they do more inteligentsia experiments though! :) draft @ schooltje
