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.

psilosophy (649) - 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

25cl bottle, called "Buffalo 1907" (6.5%). Well-built, high-rising foam cap, clear amber body; later pours display some sediment. Some musty cardboard aromas on the nose. Light mouthfeel gives way to a surprising fruitiness and sugary rush; additional sips reveal a pleasant light sourness. Would have to try another bottle, but if this light acidity is spoilage, I’d recommend infecting every single batch. It’s lovely. At least in this example, more "Oud Bruin" than "Belgian Ale."
