2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malty. Caramel, licorice notes. Very light bitterness. Deep copper brown clear with thin tan head. Med heavy carb with med watery body. Malty caramel taste. Dry. Weak & watery. Weak sour coffee. Light bitter acidic finish but very clean after. Not what I would guess as a stout.

Bottled. Dark ruby with rich creamy head. Sweet and clean with some plum and licorice. Empty for such a big beer with a salty metallic finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Plain almost black beer with a slight coffee aroma like a stout, but that's where the similarities end. The flavour is fruity and leaves a fizz on the tongue. Overall a disappointing beer as it is a Belgian ale crossed with a stout.
