On tap at the Taphouse in Hampton, VA. Pours close-to-black with a small head. Funky smells of earth and roasted malts.
Flavor is accented by a funky yeast note; a nice play on the Belgian origin. Nice chocolate and malt flavors that marry well. Smooth and toasty on the palate. Medium bodied and fairly easy to drink.
Nice and approachable. I'd suggest it for those who are first learning about stouts to illustrate the variability of flavors and body.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a brown to black coloring, with a tall, frothy, dense, cream colored head that sits tall and sticks around while you drink. Aromas of cream, subtle bittersweet chocolate, earth and wood, and hints of funk. Flavors of roast and old world fruit forward, with date and fig in the backbone. Booze highlights, with a chocolate character, and a dark, old-world fruit overlay. Very rich and layered, but it remains very layered. The body is mid-range, but lightens towards the end of the palate. RIch and roasty notes in the aftertaste, with the sweetness holding court. Smooth, slick, clean finish, with a slight boozy linger. Solid brew, and fairly easy to drink despite the increased ABV and robust character.
