look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Pours thickly; a stout-like pitch black with very little head. Despite the lack of top foam, it looks velvety smooth.

S - Roasty coffee, smoky notes, and a background aroma of dried fruit. Picked up an occasional whiff of some sort of unpleasant mustiness.

T - Very roasty bitter with a twinge of sweetness in its robust, smoky profile. A slightly sour, fruity profile begins to seep through as it warms. Does not finish dry, but the bitterness lingers.

M - Thick, smooth, and pretty fizzy. a good balance of textures.

D - The ABV is a titch high and the bitterness does stick around for a while, so it's not really a session brew, but finishing a whole glass is not difficult at all.

Overall - It's officially a Belgian ale, but seems to carry traits of stout and even rauchbier. A delicious mutt of a beer.
