Pint from a growler filled at "b2 Taphouse" in Salem.
I think $13.
Beer is a darker brown colour with a large thick and frothy tan head..that sticks around!
Nice aromas of nuts,Belgian style yeasts,cherries and toasted malt.
Again nice fruity yeasty Belgian accents in the taste..touch of nuts and some sweet black cherry..semi bitter coffee malts in the end
Good mouth feel substantial but not thick and cloying.
Overall likable beer here a good hybrid.
On tap at Euclid Hall. Pours dark brown, with a medium, creamy, silky tan head. The aroma is caramel, walnuts, light coffee, and plum. Sweet and malty, with a thin bitterness. Medium body, chalky, syrupy, and a bit thin. This is a pretty nice, malt forward beer. williamstome (1909) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Very dark brown / black pour, small off-white head. Weak nutty aroma. Flavor follows with notes of raisins, prunes and roast. jinroh (2006) - ESTONIA - APR 25, 2017
Pours dark brown, bit of beige foam on the top, more like a skirmish though. Aroma has some roast, little sourness and burnt malts. Taste has more acidity, feels actually quite sour, with this burnt rye bread in the background, together with some - yes again - nail polish. Relatively weak body, roast is strong and lots of chocolate, bitter and not sweet, wheat adding these sour notes. Overall interesting, not sure I want to drink a lot of it though.

Draft pour pint at the Collective. Pours black with a tan cola fizz head. Soft aroma of sweet malts. Chocolate and malt up front. No obvious walnut for me, but I suppose it’s a little nutty late in the palate. Easy drinking and quite tasty.
