Muled back from Belgium by Kevin (props for that!) It is almost black in color with a dense, rocky light tan head. It smells like old leather and sort of like bandaids. Taste is sweet up front, with a nice maltiness and a slight sharpenng at the end. Tastes of carob powder with a buttery note and traces of strawberry. Very mellow, it seems like I'm going to like it more than I do, somehow. I like it, just not as much as I think I will when I hit the first sip. Mouthfeel is creamy, soft, and sharply carbonated at the same time. Drinkability isn't bad but the aftertaste is a touch metallic and doesn't make me yearn for the next sip. It has a lot of interesting things that it almost pulls off, it just seems the beer doesn't quite walk the talk. All in all a decent brew, one I'd have again. Its one I'd like to try aged or on tap (if such exists) to see how variances would affect it. To sum it up? Its got potential.
