Shared this with my buddy Arithmeticus who was kind enough to share this from his travels from France.
A: Black, little visible carbonation, thinnish pour with a tan head, which dissipated quickly.
S: Not much to note-- a bit boozy with a standard kind of porter/stout nose
T: Not complex but intense dark roast grains and hints of anise/licorice
M: Medium mouthfeel, but decent really
O: This is a decent offering, and I'm glad I tried it. The 9%ABV didn't hurt either. Would I have it again? Only if I could have in France.

This one was a little sweet and rich for me, especially at the end of a long trip to Belgium, but I enjoyed it.

Poured chilled in standard ale glass

A: medium head, creamy; modest carbonation; solid black; crap on cap
S: stinks to high heaven; anise; dark roast; smells boozy
T: amazing; intense stout; chocolate; rich flavor
M: thin

Really a very fine stout; complex and interesting; definitely worth getting when you pass through France.
