3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33 cl bottle from Belgisk Bryg; BBD: 02/10/16) Poured at fridge temperature into a Maisel & Friends footed tulip glass reveals a pitch black body with tan, creamy two-finger head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is interesting. It contains notes of chalk and roastedness but also a funky hint of crayon and sour cream, which complements the aroma profile nicely. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and a somewhat dry, toasted and funky finish. There’s a hint of metal in the flavour of this one but other than that the taste is quite interesting - a complex and complementary blend of chalky, licorice roastedness and this uplifting funkyness with a hint of metal. Very interesting beer.

33cl bottle. Dark brown/black colour with a nice beige head. Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, barnyard, licorice, dates and smoke in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex but no so balanced with the sourness getting through at the finish and masking the roasted and chocolate notes. Overall, a good beer but could be better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown pour with ruby highlights and moderate creamy tan head. Lots of roasty stout-like aromas - charred and roasted meat and espresso. The taste is also quite stout-like, with roasted red meat, a little charcoal, coffee, molasses, also with a bit of apple cider vinegar light sourness. Medium bodied and lightly acidic. Very interesting and quite enjoyable take on a stout/porter.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330 ml, pours dark brown almost black with beige head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, butter caramel, nuts and somevnack fruits Taste is very good balanced with medium sweetness, light coffee bitterness and some delicate sourness. Full bodied, creamy and fruity at once. More a stout than a porter and besides the light sourness not much of a lambic, but still a nice mix of styles.
