JorisPPattyn (7939) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2012
Cask Dark reddish-brown ale, crowned with a B.C."H." Chocolate, bit of coffee, dark malts galore. Sharpish roasted beer with chocolate, meatroast and discreet hops. Coffee retronasal. Maybe medium bodied, quite slick. Interesting, even as a porter - which could mean anything these days - it presents an original twist, and it is quite satisfying.
