la echo la Burra translates as the kicking mule. Argentinian men apparently use this phrase to refer to a nagging wife. Funny stuff!

a: Very dark, clear chestnut brown; pours with a large, firm, and sticky head.

s: Obviously off from the first whiff. Some dark, fruity esters with hints of cocoa and some gentle heat. Unfortunately there was some vegetal band aids as well.

t: A bit better than the smell, but still off. Strong, roasty cocoa, odd but appealing from a Belgian style ale. I'm liking that element. Yeasty Belgian esters and some sugary caramel as well. There was also some fairly pronounced stewed vegetables at the finish.

m: Nice heft and active, fizzy carbonation.

o: A very thoughtful gift from B&E. I would love to try this as the brewer intended, I really liked some parts of it. Its a shame about the bottling/infection issue, I think this would have a very tasty and unique Belgian stout. Oh well, thanks anyway guys!

Black color with red highlights and a thick dark beige head with good retention.
Aroma with notes of chocolate, hay, lots of red fruits and I also got some Band-Aid. It is somewhat sour.
Flavor with notes of red fruits, spices, cocoa, hay, something sour and lemon drops. Dry aftertaste with a low to medium bitterness
Medium body with slightly effervescent carbonation. Hard to tell it is 8% abv.
This Belgian Dark Strong Ale felt to me like a Porter made with Belgian yeast and some wild yeast.
