Bottle shared at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Black pour, medium frothy off-white head with sparse lacing. Big roast nose, hint of coffee grounds, very subtle blackberry fruit. Slightly dark chocolate front, quite roasty and dry, again very subtle blackberry notes, nicely creamy. Blackberry becomes more prominent in the finish, chocolate too and a touch of dry roast. Very nice.

77ships (4252) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle @ ACBF 2012: dark brown to light black with a tanned head, smells like coffee, touch roasted chocolate malts, caramel & light indefinable berries; tastes like medium bitter coffee, chocolate malts, dark fruits, light roasted malts, touch chocolate, finish touch fruity & cold coffee, I can also pick out touch light berries among the fruits, if you are looking for blueberries, you can get it but no real definite blackberries, medium bodied, quite good but expecting lots of lackberries, tad letdown in that department

tderoeck (5148) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 4/III/2012 33cl bottle @ ACBF (Moen) - bottled: IX/2011 (2012-203)

Clear dark purple to black beer, no head. Aroma: sweet mocha, whisky, mussels (salty, vegetable touch), coffee. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: mocha start, fruity, black currants, blackberry jam, come citrus. Aftertaste: mocha, fruity, coffee. Pretty good stuff. If I were a porter/stout fan, I’d really dig this.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2012
No head, pours slick and oily to dark brown beer with a distinct mauve sheen. Coffee, fruity, some chocolate in the nose. Coffee, cigarette ashes and fruit (plums, billberries - and probably blackberries) in the finish, rounding it off quite nicely. Liquorice at the very end. Medium bodied, quite slick, some alcoholwarming. Nice porter, pretty original.
