minutemat (5784) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2015
75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Aug 15, courtesy of Mademoiselle Haddock. Pours black but gushy. Herbal plummy aroma. Quite a complex taste considering it’s just 4.3%. Grains, coffee with a big, dry tobacco finish. Not too much citra but still quite an interesting one. Borresteijn (7342) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2015

0.75 litre bottle: bought at De Bierboom, Brugge and shared between five at the Aug 2015 Shrewsbury bottle exchange evening. It was a gusher, so each glass had a huge rich tanned head on it’s swirling black beer. Nose of chocolate and tobacco, earthy and peaty. The taste followed the aroma closely ending with a dry finish. Good effort and plenty of flavour for such a weak ABV Belgian beer. BobyFischer (311) - FRANCE - AUG 11, 2015

Draft to taster at Liberty’s from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, nutty character, some chocolate, earthy, a splash of citrus, mild to moderate earthy bitterness to the finish, decent for a lower abv stout.
