After much demand for a seriously dark beer, we
came up with this delicacy. Black, smooth and
easy to drink, this is our beer for the people!

I was initially pretty excited for this beer. Dark and malty on a cool autumn night. but then came the OVERWHELMING AFTERTASTE of stale cigarettes. We have a neighbor next door with a bucket on her deck with all her cigarette butts. Our dog knocked that thing over and my wife and I had to clean it up. That's what this beer ended up tasting like.

I love beer, especially great beer but even with all that, I can pretty much drink anything. I left 3/4 of this pint on the table. Just a shear chore trying to get to the bottom of this glass. I threw in the towel.

Serving Type: On tap @ The Brewer's Art bar

Appearance: Dark, almost porter-like in color and appearance. I would never have guessed at the complexity from first glance.

Smell: Chocolate, Belgian "funk", raisins & plums, some roast.

Taste: Sweet, malty, a tiny bit of roast - though definitely balanced. and playful with the style - whatever the style actually is. There is a bit of alcohol taste in there, which I'm sure comes from the Belgian ingredients. Tastes like a much bigger beer than it actually is. I would have guessed 8% - not the 5% listed above. Easily drinkable over long periods of time.

Mouthfeel: porter-like

Overall: Great beer when paired with steaks & frites. Definitely not what I would have expected from a dark beer.
