I donít know how this beer is rated as highly as it is in here. I am very unimpressed. One of those beers where I bought a six pack just to try something new and as soon as I took a sip thought "that was a mistake, should have just bought another unibroue." Watery, no character at all. All you taste is malt and not a very pleasant malt flavor at that. In the same class with Guinness as far as Iím concerned. Might even prefer a Guinness and thatís saying something.

Pours black with small brown head. Aromas of chocolate and malt. Taste the same with a little sweetness from the cream. Very smooth. Little to no aftertaste. Finishes clean. Nice lacing in the glass. Light to medium mouth feel.
