Muggus69 (2276) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 09.06.2018 Near black body, thick, creamy tan head. Reasonable intensity aroma, somewhat a mixed bag - dark brown sugar, bread, smokey sort of phenolics, black fruits, raisin, burnt crust. Surprisingly lean body for strength, kind of drying texture, sort of well attenuated, lifted carbonation. Burnt sort of body - crust & wood & sugar and spice, black & dark fruits. Sort of bitter, dry, boozy, slightly phenolic. Almost like a black saison; not so sugar about it.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark chocolate, prunes, caramel, tobacco and some spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, prunes, dark chocolate, spices, licorice, wood and alcohol. Pretty tasty.

It pours dark with a tan head. The aroma has funky weird cream, roast and berries. It has a medium body with a lot of carbonation. The taste has smooth roast, berries, sourness and light spice. Good.

Strykzone (7049) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Sampled at Gregwilsonstls tasting. A big beige head leaves heavy lacing. The beer is dark brown with red highlights. Not a lot going on here. Some cherry, grain, earth, spice. Alcohol comes late and is airy. Not a great beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7300) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2016 Sampled on draft at Monks Cafe this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy tan head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was toasty and malty with notes of chi, cherry and port wine. The flavor was tartish and a hint soir with toasty malts, soy sauce, chocolate, cola, cherry, berry and red wine. Nicely rich and complex. Long finish. Medium body. Very nice.

MelvinKalksma (1307) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2016

Aroma:
Slight aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque dark brown/black beer with a medium brown/dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Tastes like a chocolate fruitcake, with a perfectly balanced flavour. Personally I really like the Belgian brewers that dare to brew a roasted beer.
