330ml Bottle - Dark brown with some red tinges and a tan head. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Roasted, nutty and chocolatey taste with notes of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and chestnuts. Easy to drink and quite roasted compared to most dark Belgian ales.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (roasted grain, nuts, husks), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of taffy and grape jelly.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Not quite as poor as the From Heaven, but still quite rough and clumsy. Ultimately another drain pour. bonkiedeaap (761) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is dark brown to black colored and pours a stable cream colored head, with nice carbonation. First thing well smelling the aroma is fresh baked bread, but also a nice sweetness of caramel and bitterness of cacao and coffee. A little stout like. The taste is light sweet and malty with caramel notes which evolvs into a nice bitterness with coffee and cacao notes. Well balance between aroma and taste. The finish is dry and light bitter. Very good brew Bozo_skeleton (1157) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 10, 2015

Appearance: Pours black, with a slight maroon tinge. Light caramel head.
Taste: Malts, coffee, liquorice, hint of caramel.
Palate: Very bitter, with a minimal sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Light carbonation.
Overall: Not bad. In fact, it’s one of the better dark beers I’ve had. I wouldn’t hesitate trying this again, but I won’t go out of my way to.
Bottle. Burnt copper pour with a 1 finger head that fades slowly to a thick ring. Aroma is very yeasty with some light caramel and dark fruit. Tastes a bit off. Might be an old bottle. Stale malt, light chocolate, dark bread, dark fruit. Awful aftertaste. This has to be an old bottle.
