Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a ridiculously large, very dense, light brown head. Lacing is extremely strong. Aromas of chocolate, cherry, banana, and hints of molasses. Wow - what a smooth beer for the mouthfeel. Creamy throughout, with a nice coating upon the swallow. Flavors are great with cherry and chocolate at the start, then a nice banana and orange finish. Honestly the most complex beer I have tasted. Not sure I could drink more than one but it is amazing - must purchase if you can find it!

Bottle from Corvallis Brew Supply, Corvallis. Pours almost black reddish brown, moderate amount of tan head. Aroma slightly boozy, Bourbon, cherries, dried fruit, not much Brett. Body very lively, surprisingly bitter, sweetness, chili powder, candi sugar, vinous/tart, oaky character. SUblime and complex, de Proef are wonderfully underrated.

750 ml bottle. I’m thinking this is about four and a half years old. Aroma is complex, with cherries, chocolate, Brett, toffee. Pours a dark brown to mahogany with a two finger tan head with excellent retention. Taste is earthy, lightly sweet and somewhat tart from the cherries. Thin-bodied with a fairly light body. The Brett comes out more as it warms. Nice beer.

750 ml bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours very dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is brett, barnyard funk, cherries, barrel, tart. The taste is tart, funky, cherries, the roasted grains of the porter shows up in the finish. Big surprise with this one, was expecting something more malty, very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by the Atlanta Fantasy Football Crew. Pours brown with a thin off white. Aroma of ripe fruits, cherries, spices, cola. Taste was cherry candy, molasses, some cocoa, spices. Slightly weird finish of off yeast. Not bad at all, but perhaps just a bit of something that I cannot find words to describe.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colored pour. Huge dark tan head. Plenty of lacing. Big sour aroma of dark cherries and pits. Some chocolate notes as well. Chocolate flavor right up front. Sweet milk chocolate. There is some of the cherry in the back. Pretty good.

Pours dark roasted chestnut unclear with a decent creamy and lacey darker beige head. The aroma has slight cherry juice and wild yeast astringency. The flavor brings the wild yeast as well, with light sweet fruity notes that settle delicately on the palate. I remember much bigger flavor, especially from the cherry juice. I think I sat on it too long.
