COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed since the beginning of last century, when the near-complete staff of the brewery went to see the circus of Buffalo Bill, leaving the boiling brewing kettle to the care of the youngest employee. This boy let the beer roast and caramelise on the bottom of the kettle, but after trying, everybody actually liked the "spoiled" beer, which became the brewery’s staple diet. This Belgian version is a lot weaker than the stout exported to the USA.

Bosskie (354) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2011
Pitch black but still transparent with a weak head and well carbonated. Light banana smell with apples and hints of chocolate. Some strawberries and cherries in there too. Ver fizzy coffee taste with those apples again, it’s almost a bit like a cider. Peaches and caramel without the sweetness. Sweetish dry finish. Quite an interesting beer.

psilosophy (478) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2011
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur marron - rougeâtre, une mousse abondante et crêmeuse qui tient bien. Légèrement fruitée, on retrouve surtout les arômes torréfiés et caramélisés. Une bière qui a du corps malgrès son petit 6,5%, texture sympa. Ensemble plutôt correct malgrès une étiquette qui ne paie pas de mine! Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert
