A 330ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014, so a little out of date. Acquired ages ago from a Belgian supermarket while on a trip. I hope it's alright....

A: Poured into a tulip. Bottle conditioned. A deep, hazy reddish-brown hue with some chunky floating sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy beige foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer.

S: Aroma of sweet, fruity malt with hints of prunes, dried fruit, brown sugar, mild molasses, stewed leaves and faint earthy yeast. A touch of cardboard. Pretty good.

T: Tastes of fruity malt with a lingering yeasty finish. Notes of dried fruit, brown sugar, faint roasted grain, mild molasses, stewed leaves, earthy yeast and harsh cardboard. Slightly sweet, followed by a subtle bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and decent body. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of vague fruity malt, stewed leaves and cardboard.

O: It's OK; a tad lacking in depth for the style. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are predominantly fruity malt and stewed leaf notes. Acceptable body. It could do with a character boost to make it stand out from its peers - goes down OK but otherwise unexceptional. Worth sampling if you come across it.

On nitro tap at the Porter Bar (ATL). Served in Brugse Zot stemware.

Dark fruit and a hint of wood in the nose.

Flavor. Rich and complex. Mostly dark fruits and light spices. Sweet and bitter in about equal measure with a subtle tartness too.

O: nearly on par with Westmalle?
