COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed since the beginning of last century, when the near-complete staff of the brewery went to see the circus of Buffalo Bill, leaving the boiling brewing kettle to the care of the youngest employee. This boy let the beer roast and caramelise on the bottom of the kettle, but after trying, everybody actually liked the "spoiled" beer, which became the brewerys staple diet. This Belgian version is a lot weaker than the stout exported to the USA.

ForlornHope (504) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with ruby hints. Thin, off-white head. Slight aroma of yeast and scalded sugar. Sweet taste to start, then a slight bitterness to finish. Flavours of roasted malt, stewed fruit and licorice. Tangy and tasty, almost cherry-like against the sweet malt. Lively palate and a dry finish. Nice.
