The beer pours a nice and creamy light tan head that dissipates a little quickly but still leaves a ring around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is an opaque black with dark purple notes. The beer leaves quite a bit of lacing behind. The beer has a nice roasted sugary smell. The smell has dark fruit notes and burnt sugar. There are also slightly syrupy notes as well as roasted malts. The earthy hops also make an appearance but get lost in the other notes. The taste is fairly different than the smell. In addition to the dark fruit smell, the beer's strongest notes are the raw sugar and the cherry syrup is strong as well. The syrup doesn't taste like cough medicine but adds a distinct funk to the taste that isn't in the smell. The sugar and malts taste roasted while the earthy hops make an appearance in the end and in the aftertaste. The beer' feel is fairly smooth and very carbonated but a tad light for this kind of ale.

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice beige head that dies down moderately and leaves lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, some dark fruit (berries, cherries) and some rich roasted malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a bready Belgian yeast, dark fruit (berries, raisins), roasted malts and some earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Small head that leaves a couple of streaks on the glass. Near black in color but light passes on the edge.

Strong near-black malt aroma. Some black patent grainy aroma but not too the point of "coffee". Think nearly burnt toast. It seems like there's a bit of smokiness to this beer.

Starts with some burnt grain but then a strong kick of licorice shows up. This lasts through the aftertaste. Low carbonation makes this seem creamy but the body is on the thin side.
