Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing tis bottle. Brown with a tan head. The aroma is full of licorice with some Belgian yeast and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of roasted malt, with some dark fruit and a light amount of smoke coming through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown pour with loads of sediment, foamy tan head. Aroma of bready yeast, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, creamy and with spices. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, creamy and with a smooth texture. Lively carbonation. Well drinkable, but more like a dark dubbel than a porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown pour. Medium sized vast and slowly changing beige tan colored foamy head on top of a muddy deep deep dark dark red brown colored beer.
Aromas of manure, coffee, roast, yeast, chalk and a light sour touch in the nose.
Flavours of bitters, iron, roast, herbs, dried berries, paper, some clay, a little warmth, barley and coffee roast. There’s a teeny tiny sour touch to it
Bit thin an dry but the roast is good represented.
Aftertaste is a mix of roast, bitters, some dryness, nuts and some floral tones.
Low to medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
Quite thin but not boring.
