Draught, @ a Belgium Beer Fest in East Croydon.
The first beer of several in what was my official comeback to the rating seen. A lovely decadent dark brown opener. Dark brown, with lovely form and shap. Dry tabaco flavours with hints of noble spice. Very exciting.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2005
Very dark brown with intens creamy brown head. Typical stout aroma’s of burned malts, black chocolate, and fresh roasted coffee-beans. It has a nise and expressive nose with dominant burned hints and also some herbal fresh accents. That taste is round and elegant for this type of beer. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy texture, chocolate and coffee taste and elegant bitterness.
