3.44/5 rDev -15.7%
Bottle: Poured a deep burgundy color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of dry earthy hops with some dry roasted malt notes. Taste is a mxi between some roasted malt with dry bitter notes with some earth hops with and almost astringent finish. Body is light with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A bit too much astringency to be truly enjoyable.

33cl Bottle: BBD 25th Apr 2016. Drank on 30th Jan 2014 in 't Brugs Beertje.
Pours almost a true black, but it's really dark, dark brown with a deep red hue: lightly tanned head.
Burnt malts rule the nose, they also take over the taste but not as much as in the aroma.
In the mouth dark fruit flavours within a chocolate bar and a bittering hop undertone stop the beer becoming one dimensional and help to hide the 9.2% ABV which is always hanging around in the background.
Different and most enjoyable.

Poured into a tulip glass black with a HUGE white head. The head retention is AWESOME. The Lacing . . . seriously, I don't think I've ever seen lacing down the glass like this. The retention and lacing alone deserves the 5, it's literally a "hey, look at this" moment.
I have a lack of scent, and really can't point anything out on the scent of this beer.
The taste has alot of coffee, cocoa, and carmel. There's alot of dark roasted flavors in the palette. Not much Belgian yeast flavor that I would expect.
I agree with the previous review, this really is more like an Imperial Export Stout. Mouthfeel has about that much body, not thick like an IRS, but not like a IPA either. Carbonation is good.
