Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint and a lacing beige head. Lovely Bretty, farty aroma. Medium body, sweet roast, some dark dried fruit and bubblegum. A slight, lurking tartness - sort of lactic yoghurt. No real bitterness or alcohol touch but a very interesting and different take on a Porter. 130711

Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Black color, small sized head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, chocolate, vinous sourness, cardboard, wood, some funkyness. Good body structure, the soft chocolate flavor comes with a moderate sweetness, and a delicate sourish touch, almost fruity. The bitterness is low, and there is an impression of liquorice in the end. Very good.
