330cl bottle with unmarked red cap. "Bottled" is stamped on the cap but no date.

Served slightly chilled from the bottle into a tulip glass.

It's a nearly black beer with thick redish tan head.

Aroma is unusal. A cross between stout notes of roasted coffee and dark chocolate combined with Belgian ale yeast qualities of spice and funk.

Flavor is a complex blend of chocolate, coffee, nuts, red wine, and tannins. It's balanced and full of depth.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and highly carbonated.

Overall a good Belgian stout and interesting but not my favorite.

2008 bottle; about 6 years old, cellared at 55 degrees F.

Very dark brown, with a large tan head that reduces to a creamy quarter inch layer.

Smells like soot, and hints of grain, dark chocolate and dark fruit.

Tastes like smooth chocolate malt combined with sooty roastiness, and after a few seconds a good amount of assertive bitterness joins in and intensifies into the finish. Moderate acidity. Full flavored and tasty, with excellent balance and good length.

Over-carbonated out of the bottle, but some swirling renders it creamy and smooth. Medium bodied; not very thick for the style, but does have a nice silkiness.

This seems to have aged gracefully; quite enjoyable.

A cool looking label intrigued me. The pour was less than stellar however. Hugely frothy and a bit of murkiness amongst the extremely dark brown, nearly black, body. Whatever, onward ho!

You get a BLAST of aromas. Coffee grinds, cocoa powder, burnt toast, figs, prunes, and even a touch of leather. Musky as well, although this is more of a mild background tone. Flavors are all over the place and work quite nicely together. Smooth and medium bodied, but carbonation is up there. Any more carbonation and I wouldn't like it as much. But overall, a good beer indeed.

Bottle poured into a Stone Snifter. Bottled February 2013.

Has an incredible amount of tan head. This beer has set in in my fridge for sometime and I cannot believe the amount of explosive head that comes out of this thing. You would need a big gulp if you wanted to do an aggressive pour with this. Head finally settles and begins to flot with a 1/2 finger thickness. Smell is very strong with some sweet malt rather than roast and sour fruits. Taste is less sour than smell and has a hint of chocolate.
