A very unpleasant combination of flavors, including metal and sour. Ugh.

We drank half the bottle before pouring the rest down the drain. Plenty of oxidization due to the age but the sourness just wasn't enjoyable. It seemed more like an accidentally infected porter than a fob.

Thanks to GT for sharing.

The beer is dark brown with a beige head. The aroma offers pears, malt, yeasty bread. Hints of bananas, sweet bread, mild tartness. This is ok, but not quite up to the level I have come to expect from Urbain and De Struise. Still, worth a gander. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
