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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

On tap at O'Brien's Pub in San Diego, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and some char aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
