[9/22/10] Bottle at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Black with a big brown head. Aroma of espresso, burnt wood, some dark chocolate and dark fruits notes. Bittersweet flavor with lots of coffee, somewhat burnt, smoke, tobacco, chocolate notes and alcohol. Bitter roasty finish. Thick and full-bodied. Good and bursting with flavor but a bit over the top. 7/4/7/4/15=3.7
Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. It pours jet black, with a thin dark tan head. The nose is big intense espresso coffee, chocolate, charcoal and roasted notes. The taste is full of espresso coffee, blackcurrant, blueberry, molasses, ash, roasted malt, coconut and dark chocolate. Full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. It’s good, but the intense coffee and sticky sweetness makes it challenging to drink in any great quantity. Tmoney99 (14492) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an small to average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee malt, caramel and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Good complex roasted choclate and caramel flavor with a medium to heavy roasted sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex standout brew.
