Puchased from the Struise shop in Brugge July 12 - 2nd last bottle they had! Drank at home 04/08/12. Poured into a snifter to a rich black colour with a tan head that soon gives way. Smells of dark fruit and liqourice, sugars and roasted malt. Tastes of dark fruits, roasted malts, aniseed, burnt sugar and the port definately comes across. Maybe the only let down for me is the carbonation level which seemed just a little too high. Great beer and would revisit given the chance!

marcus (9992) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle at Kulminator. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a robust chocolate and treacle flavor with a hint of port. Very complex and tasty, as it incorporates the best features of Black Albert and Kate.

JorisPPattyn (9881) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2012
Huge, dark brown head; pitch-black beer. Sweet, roasted & burnt nose, coffee. Coffee, very burnt, but always with a sweet, moccha-like or even toffee-like backing. Liquorice, and a bit of pure cacao powder. Very well-bodied, very slick, alcoholheating. Rather typical IS, sweet, but with a streak of neutral to roasted character. Not really outstanding.
