Shared at a small tasting. Enjoyed in a snifter, 2012 vintage and 75CL split 4 ways.A – Pitch black, oily and nice 2 finger coffee coloured head.

S – Smells very nice.You get a standard stout of coffee, chocolate and roasted coffee. Green pepper nose and the farmhouse yeast adds a belgian orval nose to it

T – Taste is pretty standard. There’s licorice, smoke, chocolate and dry oaky notes. The flavor is spicy, bread and sadly the two styles just don’t meld too well

M – Big body, sticky flavors that hang out for a long time. Creamy and heavy carbonation

O – Good beer, the original I still think is better than this one.
