15th Dec 2012: my first draught beer of the day at the 18th Essen Christmas Beer Festival.
Dark and Stout-like in appearance, tanned head and all that.
Strong aroma and taste of both coffee and chocolate in equal measures with hints if liquorice in the taste, drying finish and a good start to my tasting day. mike_77 (7029) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2012

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 Draft at the Essen Christmas Beer Festival. Poured a dark mahogany with a round tan head. The aroma is smoky and of roasted malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with liqourice and malt. There is little on the palate and the beer is surprisingly smooth with little alcohol burn.

Mooie donker/zwarte kleur, schenkt als koffie, dunne motorolie.
Aroma van mout, koffie
Smaak: eerste slok is enorm moutig( gebrand mout), en behoorlijk bitter, tja stout he, welke overigens aardig snel afvlakt. lichtzoet iets van koffie/mocca/chocolade.
afdronk is lang, bitter, pittig en droog. Viel mij niet tegen

Very dark brown beer, creamy beige to brown head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit smelly, coffee, grains, oats, mocha. MF: lively carbon, full body. Tase: mocha, coffee, caramel, bitter hops, chocolate. Aftertaste: mocha, bitter hops, cocoa powder, very dry and hoppy ending. Very decent!
(From notes 6 Oct, 2012) Tap. Thick head, bitch black beer. Aroma of coffee and malt. Smooth on the palate and a pretty dry finish. This was a nice stout. JorisPPattyn (10062) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2012
Draught Gushing to overflowing cream-tan head over fully black beer; textbook lace; Roasted, charred, bit meatroastsides-like, but also charbon; ureum. Sweet-roasted, and a bit mineral, not quite salty. And in the finish, a faint but unmistakable mintflavour - strange. Medium bodied, but feels better bodied; very slick, grist-like slickness. Good try, even when it’s not a patch on what’s done these days in the USA, Denmark or even the UK - or Oostvleteren...
