Large sample at the 4th International Beer Swap, De Bierboom, Brugge on 5th Feb 2016. Dark brown with a decent and lasting off-white/beige head. Malty nose and flavour with a hint of dark chocolate in both the aroma and taste. Gave my taste buds a break from heavy alcohol brews on the night and I thank whoever brought this to the table.
