First things first. This beer actually has a name - it's called Robustus 6. Also, it's brewed all year round. It is almost completely opaque dark brown and has an amazing head. It smells very strongly of coffee, with hints of chocolate and loads of malt. The taste, however, is very well-balanced. The malt coffee and chocolate flavour are not at all sweet because the hops take over during the finish. It has a slightly dry mouthfeel, with lots of creamy carbonation. Awesome beer.

Dark semi-transparent brown against the light. A good head that settles with lots of lacing.

Smells of warm chocolate and concentrated black tea-tannins, malts, a little spicyness.

Tastes starts by following smell, but the hops come through very quickly, and perfectly counteract and balance the underlying sweetness. Finish is nice and dry with a hint of bitterness even.

Mouthfeel is a weak point -- carbonation is more noticeable in the finish and is a bit harsh and overpowering. Later it tastes flat.

Second time round: nice enough beer but not worth the craft beer prices (IIRC was between 4 & 5 euro)
