Draught @ Le Trappiste, Bruges as "Malheur Novice Black." Aroma has tobacco, ash, toffee and licorice. Flavour has licorice, funky yeasty tones, ripe fruits and toffee typical to Belgian ales. Alcohol is present but does not disturb. Quite delicious, I like the licorice here.

75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 07.12.2014
Aroma has licorice, brown sugar and some dark fruits. Flavour is somewhat tart and dry with citron, some orange peel, dark fruits and slightly salty licorice. Also hints of raisins. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. Unusual but good.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a black beer with a big beige head.
Smells off candy sugar, some red fruits also, some hops, some roasted malts, sadly the smell suffers from sulfur.
Tastes malty, bitter, also has a light sour hint in it.
something seems a bit off with this bottle. I remember this being way better.
