Poured from bottle. Aroma is quite mild, a bit of malt and earthy. Pours a dark red. Has a mild bitter taste. Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, with a slight bitter finish. It is an ok beer, but I like other Belgian Ales more.

Strong, full smell, like fresh coffee grains. Dark chocolate foam, not bitter, not sweet, just as it should be. Strong taste but easily drinkable in any time of year. Mild fruit aftertaste, some caramel powder in small amounts. One word, rich and extravagant, must try, and must have.

Pours muddy dark brown, copper up in the light, small beige head that goes away almost on the spot, leaving bubbly "islands" and a thin lacing.
Smell is pretty weak, some dark malts, low dark fruit, really earthy.
Taste starts with toasted dark bread, grains (spicy rye?) and burnt sugar. Dark fruity esters bring some red apple acidity, some zesty citrus and dark grapes and a faint sour cherry note. Belgian yeasts show themselves, with woody nutmeg and cinnamon, some mild minty herbs (sage, coriander) and faint clove. Mild bitterness in the finish, but there's a big clunky breadiness covering it and going into the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation, has a certain crispness from start to finish that's a bit numbing, reducing the effect of the other flavours, and then it's doughy and earthy.
You can certainly get some German doppelbock notes mixed with the Belgian signature yeasts, but it feels unbalanced and somehow hides the good parts, resulting in an almost bland tasting experience.
