I bought this beer in Belgium a few weeks ago @ Dranken Geers, near Gent. I was pretty surprised to see this beer in the shop.

Poured in my little Struise tasting glass this beer starts of quit nice with a coppercoloured fluid and a very decent head. No carbonation, pity. The head is gone after a minute leaving some pretty lacing in the glass.

You can actually smell the molasses (or at least that is what i think i am smelling).

The beer is too flat, not much going in in the mouth...but in the end the taste is ok!
