A very unique stout. The flavor is quite complex, with char, dark dried fruits and yeast fighting for dominance. It took about 7 minutes to finsh the pour due to an explosive head even with a gentle pour. Just as a side note, there was more chunky residue at the bootom of this galss than any beer I've ever had.

2012 bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A two finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin puffy layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Toffee, caramel, some old ale, smoke, chocolate, roasted coffee, earthy, some soy, figs, dark fruits, leather, and toasted notes.

Taste: A blend of above aromas with ashy bitterness in the rear. Alcohol is not even noticeable too.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little bitterness.

Overall:

2012 bottle poured into a modified tulip.
A - Massive active foamy cap, settles down with time. Dark color, lots of carbonation, not a gusher though.
S - Dried fruit, raisin, plum, prune a mild cocoa and leather, old leather. Has many characteristics of a Dubble
T - The dark fruit is up front, almost intense, the middle has he stout, cocoa, dark grain taste.
M - Crisp active carbonation leaves a lighter that expected mouth feel. Finish is slightly sweet and not offensive.
O - A pleasant Belgian stout, one the may well continue to develop, this bottle had 2 years and was still quite active.

Cheers

330cl bottle with unmarked red cap. "Bottled" is stamped on the cap but no date.

Served slightly chilled from the bottle into a tulip glass.

It's a nearly black beer with thick redish tan head.

Aroma is unusal. A cross between stout notes of roasted coffee and dark chocolate combined with Belgian ale yeast qualities of spice and funk.

Flavor is a complex blend of chocolate, coffee, nuts, red wine, and tannins. It's balanced and full of depth.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and highly carbonated.

Overall a good Belgian stout and interesting but not my favorite.
