At the pub. Not a bad beer, but I expect more from this great brewery. Black body with sweet wheat aroma. Interesting mix between clove, banana weisse flavors with roasted dark brew qualities.

Pours a very deep dark brown almost black with a nice tannish gray head. Aroma is rich with roasted charred malts, burnt toast very light earthy phenolics. Very burnt black malt flavor almost stout like but acrid dry earthy and lots of burnt toast and a light sweetness- earthy and dry finish. Pretty good overall for a belgain stout-like category.
