Botella. Marrón oscura casi negra con excelente corona, menos carbonatacion que una doble belga tradicional. Aroma licoroso y dulce con especias de por medio y muchas trazas de maltas caramelizadas. Sabor café y regaliz mucho dulzor intermedia y gran amargor bien camuflado, especiada. Agradable final italianjohn (3133) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013

Slutfest 2013: Pecan nose. Cloudy brown, thin tan head. Flavor is somewhere between maple syrup and bubblegum, but closer to the latter. Odd. Disparate flavors and aromas, muddled with no transitions. Kind of a mess. Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of marble pound cake, peanut butter cookies, golden raisins, and floral hops. Brown with mostly lasting, khaki head. Off-dry, rummy, with coconut tones, and some cola. Medium body, average carbonation, and a sweet, nutty finish. madmitch76 (24802) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013

Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Palate is smooth but dry. Dark chocolate cake. Minerals. Trace of hops but this is a chocolate cake beer!
