Had this one on tap at CC in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured black with a good finger of dark brown head. Good lace drapes and a film of retention.

S - Belgian funky yeast. Roast and chocolate too. Blended well.

T - Belgian yeast was there again but restrained. Chocolate and roast came out again and were well balanced.

M - Stronger yeast finish. Nice light carbonation, light to medium body.

O/D - The Belgian component worked well. You'd expect this to be around 7% for the copmlexity, but it's a nice low ABV for a longer session. Tasty stuff with a nice blend of flavours.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with the liquid close to pitch black in color; the frothy tan head leaves splotches of lace

Smell: Roasty black bread aroma

Taste: Black bread, up front, but the citrusy hops take over in the middle; the malt never really catches up with the hops again through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation

Overall: The only real Belgian element in this beer I could detect was in the mouthfeel - otherwise it was more like an American Porter; still, the taste of the beer is very good
