This beer has a light lattice and head that lasts an okay amount of time. As for smell, it is faint. But I detect an almost cheap brandy kind of smell. That probably says more about me than the actual beer. As for taste, it is sour. There is a distinct lack of bitte beer hops, and it could use some. It is pretty sour in the aftertaste, but it does have a touch of some burnt coffee to it. Overall, it is okay.
Serving type: on-tap

This pours a handsome dark amber in the big Duvel tulip. Nice foam and plenty of froth sloshing around the glass. Aroma is nutty with a band-aid nose. Sudsy and watery with some malty body.
Toasted malt flavor with fruity, leafy hops. It's a somewhat murky sort of flavor, but complex and interesting. Some cocoa and apple flavors, with a touch of burnt sugar and butterscotch. The bitterness is modest, and there is more of a woody dark taste than hops. Some scorched baked apple with hints of hard candy and roasted chestnuts.
This is truly weird but done well. The buttery flavor mixed with the slight acidity, grilled pears, and bitterish hops is a piece of work. It's all totally drinkable, it just requires re-thinking into another place and time of brewing.
I am quite fond of the Pretty Things "22nd November 1838" ale in this style, so I'm glad to see them as the collaborator on this batch.
