Nice very dark brown, clear beer with a small off-white head.
Smells powerfully of fruit and chocolate. The Belgian yeast smell is overwhelming the chocolate here, but its character is very particular and unique.
An unrelentingly fruity and chocolaty palate makes this beer rather difficult to describe in beer-terms. It is not unlike the flavor of black licorice, has just a hint of leather and a crisp bitterness.
Medium bodied with a clean finish and little lingering flavor.
A very unusual beer to be sure and I'm not quite sure how to rate. I rather doubt this one will see a second commercial run, but I've enjoyed the experiment.
