nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Very dark. Pours with a good solid head you'd expext from a belgian, starting brownish and finishing more cream colored. Spicy, and slightly more carbonated than I expected. The end of the 750 was better than the beginning...showing the benefits of warmth and breath. Excellent.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the stupid book. The pour is a light black with a thick pillowy white head and a pretty soapy lace left behind. The aroma is a little metallic but pretty good overall. There is a Belgian malt and a sweet metallic finish to it. There is a spiciness about it and its just well balanced beyond the metal. The flavor is a little more complex. There is the metallic malts and a nice caramel and dark fruit with the spicy malt and some interesting sweetness on the back end. The mouth feel is light and a little watery with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly fruity and caramel malts on the back end. Its decent overall, but definitely not my favorite thing.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is raisins, wood, dark fruit, molasses, roasted, good. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, opaque. Taste is dark fruit, woody, raisins, metallic, yeast, dry, slight booze, good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light bubbly carbonation, slightly metallic woody raisin aftertaste. Overall, its pretty good.

OsuStu (241) - - FEB 5, 2017
Bomber. Pours an opaque coffee color with a dense bubbly and lasting khaki head. Malty aromas of nuts, prunes, cream, oats, and sweet dark bread. Very nice dark cherry, raisin, light chocolate, and clove flavor with a bit of leather. Medium body, medium carbonation. Silky creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat spicy finish. Alcohol is detectible but well hidden. Really, really nice beer. Opposite of the name and all that.

cattaneopapa (365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
341ml bottle part of a taster pack. Pours an opaque deep brown colour with a small lasting head. Complex aroma with a dark fruit backbone with notes of figs, raisins, prunes, dark cherries, and licorice. Taste matches the aroma with some nutmeg and clove notes. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. It has a nice peppery finish from the booze, the alcohol is there, but its balanced against the flavours. Excellent quad.

DomD (283) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2016
From bottle. Aroma of candied fruit and caramel. Pours almost black with tan head. Taste is medium bitter. Full bodied with a thick texture and a slightly bitter finish. Excellent beer.

tightslice (1140) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark sweet fruits (figs, prunes), mild chocolate, mild herbal aperitif, burnt sugar. Taste is figs, black cherries...but not quite leathery dried fruit (somehow both juicy and dry). Very rich dark fruit notes and then mildly herbal / bitter. Mouthfeel is pristine...great balance of fizzy and creamy. This beer is definitely on another level. Supremely classic.

ffbot (384) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Smell of wood, licorice, maple, dense chocolate fruit, leather, and dark basement. Taste is licorice, maple, chocolate cookie, sweet fruitiness, and balanced well. In the glass it looks awesome, still black with a giant thick head that retains. If this doesnt get a perfect score I dunno what does

mathieuc (3639) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with a medium beige head that leaves awesome lacing. Nose is of dark fruits, dark sugar and alcohol. Taste is not quite sweet and offers raisins, figs and candi sugar. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel while a little syrupy is never heavy. Overall a solid quadrupel but the mouthfeel is not even close to Rocheforts really and dark fruits flavors could be more upfront.
