On tap at the brew pub. Served in a goblet this beer had a thin topping of tan head that quickly receded. Black. Aromas of dark malts not picking up any yeast. Flavor is indeed malty. This beer tastes like a porter to me. Not sure what makes it Belgian inspired-maybe a hint of esters in there but it is weak. Well carbonated and medium bodied a flavorful beer that is average but solid.

A: Very dark black/brown with a very white head.

S: Highly Belgian in quality with sulfur notes throughout the aroma.

T: Black licorice with spices is dominate in the front of this beer. The Belgian character comes through very strongly.

M: Great mouthfeel. Nice body with the perfect amount of carbonation.

O: If you are within a couple of hours of the brewery, this beer may be worth the trip if you like belgian beers.
