330 ml bottle at Kulminator. Pours a dark brown with large tan head. Strong aromas of chocolate and roasted malts. Thick, almost chocolate milk flavor, with bitter coffee notes. Creamy and warm with dry bitter finish. Excellent. Milter (942) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2017 God og spændende øl. Gode smagsnuancer, men savner lidt bitterhed. Flot farve og skum. vinivini (2403) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown, fine beige head. Perfect rerention. The aroma is as classic as it only could be. Nice spicy yeast, esters, caramel, toffee, banana. Full body. The taste is delicious and complex. Medium dry. Rich dark malts. Finest Belgian yeast. Prune. Notable hops and subtle roast on ending. Excellent balance. No alco feel. Great effort this one. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Bottle at Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Very dark brown/cloudy with thick beige head. Dry malt aroma with choc and camp coffee. Some raisin. Nice choc and fruit in mouth with grainy dry finish. Bit of vinous in mouth. Really excellent beer, wonderful in mouth, just needs a bit more complexity. drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2007

Pours a very dark ruby that has some head that does not stay around for too long. Nose is strong with sweetness and some firm caramel. I get a sense that there is a coffee tone that is very far in the background that is just barely peeking through. Flavor is beautiful. Outstandingly unique. Sweet for a bit, and then the stout characteristics kick in. Slight coffee accents follow the thick sweet and then it ends with a bubbly sensation on your tongue. Almost seems to be a touch of port to it. Feel is extremely well balanced. Slight bubble. Drinkability. This is not one to really drink hard and fast. Definitely a sipper...but sippable for your entire night and then some. Beyond worth trying. If you have the opportunity, trying this is imperative. nearbeer (5417) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2008
330 ml, bb 09 02 09. Dark brown with red highlights. Five finger, creamy and lasting head. Aroma is spicy cocoa, tart cherries, and slight molasses. Nice malty-yeasty flavor blend of cocoa, molasses, leather, charred wood, and sour-acidic cherry. Medium body is dry, and very acidic-tingly, yet smooth at the same time. A great Belgian yeast stylized take on the stout genre. Marheb (5752) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Une bière forte belge qui m’a totalement prit par surprise. Le caractère de la levure est juste assez présente dans l’arôme et le palais sans toutefois dominer comme le font certaines du même style. Riche et chargé de saveur. adampickens (3) - USA - JUL 2, 2011 does not count
Very dark chocolate in color. A decent size head that offers a creamy taste and aroma. The beer itself is complex in flavor. Slightly bitter in the beginning then a rush of flavor followed by a stronger bitter aftertaste. Excellent beer! Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
In bottle at de Garre. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thick tan head. Aroma of liquorice, roasty malt, dark chocolate, caramel, black pepper and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely with well balanced alcohol and lingering liquorice, roasty malt and dark chocolate again.
