Pours a somewhar murky russett brown with an almost perfect light beige one finger clingy head atop leaving a full broken ring of lace as it settles oh so slowly.Fruit with a hint of sherry vinegar in the nose wich Iam not sure is a good thing but works here,wow it's fruity.Fruity and cakey on the palate with some cake notes,the finsih has some yeasty spice notes.The alcohol is kept in control pretty good and the palate is a fruit attack.I liked it and would buy again.

Feb 2012 bottle opened April 27th 2013

A: Pours a ruby brown with an insane amount of head. I was almost worried about it being a gusher. Full hand light brown head.

S: Oh man, dark sweet fruits. Very over powering with a bit of burnt plastic on the end of the aroma.

T: Sweet dark fruits. Very powerful. Prunes, Raisins, grapes a hint of chocolate. Little too sweet for my taste.

M: Medium bodied, really carbonated, too much so IMO. Sticky sweet, that coats the mouth.

O: Really sweet, pungent beer. More on the quad side just really dark fruit sweetness. Not my favorite style or taste profile but its there if you're into that.

Pours a very dark brown, not quite opaque. A 4 finger tan head recedes becoming chunky as it goes, leaving a bit of thick, sticky lacing. and a mound of foam.

Very fruity with both dark dried fruit and grapes and some faint chocolate as well.

Very sweet!. A dessert beer? A light chocolatey bitterness, but there's also some significant dark toasted malt. Nice! Very winey, but more substantial, like a port or sherry. Light spice.

Moderatly full body, wih a light bite on the tongue, and a bit of warming in the throat. Smooth, the alcohol is barely noticable. Moderately sticky.

Very easy to drink considering the ABV. I could have downed three of these in a flash, except that the alcohol would have soon overtaken me. Elegant. Decadent.

Bottle at Bar Volo(bottled May 26, 2011). Substantive bitterness, very coffee like bitterness. The aroma is very roast. Black bodied. Lacey. A long bitter finish.Average mouthfeel, and a small amount of chocolate malt. More of an imperial stout. Decent drinkability, although something I may not reach for again. A bomber is a lot for three people.Slightly drying aftertaste.

12oz bottle purchased for $5.99 at Calandro's in Baton Rouge, LA, poured into tulip. Pours a deep brown with awesome, perfect creamy off white head. Great dried fruit and boozey chocolate aromas. Wow...awesome chocolate, dried fruit, malty flavor with a hint of bitter hop. Some booze is present but not as much as I expected. So smooth and so creamy. The beer is like silk. This brew has one of the best "mouthfeel" ive ever had, especially one with such a high abv. This is a great brew...somewhat different than the normal Strong Dark, I think its less "spice" character than I normally attribute to the style, but its just so good. Go have one if you see it!

A good looking beer, but holy hell...the head was about 7 fingers! Dirty glass? No. Used another. Same. Whew, that's foam! And looks like chocolate milk.

Dark pour. The aroma is coffee and dark chocolate. A bit of berry and dark toast.

Coffee lingers in the flavor, but fades. The yeast and bread come out a bit, too, but not much. Cranberry and some berry come and go across the palate. A hint of nuttiness. Toffee.
Not quite as sweet or candy-like that many dark Belgians (beers) have, which makes it more drinkable.

Solid beer. Price is touch steep.
