All those crazy things and they left out this recipe that New Belgium brewing company LUCKILY recovered from an age old flooded Belgian text.  Quite possibly this style/recipe is arguably the most incredible finding of its time.  New Belgium Brewing has put together a great beer here.  The beer is a darker style beer.  But it is not thick and completely roasty.  It has a nice rounded flavor to the beer.  It had a nice lingering head retention with some heavy bubble.  It definitely has some porter like qualities with out the heaviness of some darker heavier beers.  In general, this beer was a very drinkable very enjoyable beer.  It was darker in the glass but not black.  You were able to see it was clear and clean.  I will definitely like to drink more of these.
