Bottle. Very dark bown color with nice brown head. Woody, malty aroma, oak, fruits, figs, some yeast and vanilla. Smooth malty flavor, turning hoppy and a bit more aggressive after a while. Fruity notes, pepper and other spices. yespr (47115) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Carsten for bringing me this from Boston. Pours deep brown with a huge light brown head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is malty, alcohol heavy wineous, notes of dried fruit and a slight yeasty spice note. Flavour is rather sweet caramel malty. Has notes of fruits and yeast in the flavour. The yeast holds some vague spices but no match to the Belgian rolemodels. Has a light acidity lingering. Ends slight herbal/spiced with a mild bitterness and medium dry.

The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate and plums combined with a slight sourness. The color is pitch black and it has a beutiful light brown head. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast, citrus, plums, and wood. It turns somewhat bitter combined with the sourness - which is a really good balance to the sweet start. A little too sour for my liking. But the body is good. Thanks a lot to Alex (Fiulijn) for trading me this one. joergen (28991) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2005

Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized brown head,. Aroma is really strong raisiny and alcoholic (barley wineish) with caramel malts and some yeast in it too. Flavour is raisins, alcohol, some sweet malts and also vanilla & chocolate. Aftertaste is really vanillaish. Travlr (25854) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2009
750 ml bottle at C’est What? in Toronto.
Opaque black with a large tan head.
Hints of pine and licorice.
Creamy chocolate mousse flavor with an edge of slight smoke. Finish of cocoa and milk chocolate. Alcohol shows through, otherwise I’d give it a 4.5 for taste.
Definitely to be sought out. omhper (25570) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2003
Bottled. Very dark brown. Subtle berry aroma. Dryish and lightly yeasty, otherwise surprisingly clean. Notes of sugar and perhaps chocolate. Complex, but very, very subtle for a beer of this magnitude. madmitch76 (25383) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2010
26th October 2008. Very dark brown beer with a cream head. Mild and smooth but quite dry. Subtle milk chocolate and subtle cherry. Dry finish. Hides the alcohol very well but overall the beer feels a little tired. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Very dark and opaque, very small, lacing head. Pronounced alcohol in the nose. Very malty with notes of dried fruits - especially raisins. Odd underlying sourness. I’ve had this stored for six months - I think I should keep the remaining bottles for a couple of more years. 310505
