Semi-clear brown pour with large fading khaki head. Sweet chocolate cherry aroma. Brown sugar, soy, molassis, anise flavors. Very belgian in nature, not a porter. Earthy bitter finish. Medium full body with a creamy carbonation. Cool ass ceramic swing-top.

Brewed in Belgium........Courtesy of the Capt, thanks Mark !!! Pours a nice brown color with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, spices, bread and malts. Taste is of caramel, malts, nuts and bread. Overall, average !! But still very drinkable and i really dig the old milk bottle style.

Thanks for sharing Jerel! An oddity of a beer by a long shot. Clearly not much in common with a porter. Clear lighter ruddy brown with a bit of an off white head. The nose is, well, Belgian. Light, with some fruity esters, spice, perhaps some brown sugar. Not a ton of dark malt character, but some. Thinner texture, lower carbonation, but not inappropriate. The flavor is in line with the nose, though perhaps more interesting. A bit of chocolate pops out. A bit of dark fruit, but decidedly herbal. Light and clean. A surprise for me.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2009
Thanks to Butters for the bottle. Pours a coke color body with a beige head that laces. Smells of roast, brown sugar, and spices. Tastes the same with some chocolate notes. Easy to drink with a very palatable flavor and mouthfeel.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, clove, some licorice, Belgian yeast. Taste lives up to the aroma with a nice complement of bitterness on the finish. Great beer.

Re-tasted from a 75 cl. stone bottle, this time with Marc, Leen and Paul on sunday 11.01.09. A hazy brown color, with beige head. Medium body. Taste sweet, roasted malts, little bitter. Nothing special but not bad.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2008
750 mL ceramic bottle. Pours hazy ruby/brown. Highly carbonated with a thick, bubbly head. Aroma of brown sugar, molasses, caramel, toffee, and a hint of coffee. Flavor of rich, roasted malts, sweet and alcoholic in the mouth, although a little thin. Finish is slightly bitter with a hoppy note. Very enjoyable.

Large stone bottle, The Offie, Leicester. Consumed post HMHB gig. Poured a dark reddy brown with a lively fair sized beigehead. Aroma was brown sugar, berry fruit, plus sweet choccy malts .Pretty fragrant stufft. Flavour was more of the same with interesting herby notes. Slipped down nice n’smooth and a pretty tasty effort.
