A special Belgian amber ale with a robust complexity of flavors. Fruit flavors like plum and cherry which are imparted from a special Belgian yeast mix, with a wide range of malt flavors.

On tap at the Brewpub. Pours out a ruby hued brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is earthy with some notes of fruit and spice. There is an initial taste of apple with some cinamon and nutmeg. Finishes strong with alcohol. Very solid beer.

Keg at the Maui Brewing Taproom, as Father Damian, 23/04/14. Coca Cola brown with limited beige spotting, not a looker really - just scrapes a 3! Nose is dark malt, toffee, light booze fumes, spice, aniseed, vanilla, touch of yeast, liqourice. Taste comprises toffee, dark fruit skins, spice, vanill essence, light booze, fruit cake. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so Belgian offering, ticks the style boxes but far from excels!

Growler pours clear amber with a tan head of foam. The mild aroma has prunes and raisins and faint spicy yeasty notes. The taste is prune-e and raisin-y and fairly bold with peppery notes with some floral in the background. The black pepper corn and floral mix is interesting and gets kind of nutmeg like and dry into the finish.

Rich amber pour, light colored head. Honeyed malts, candy sugar, golden raisins, dates, yeast and spice flavors throughout. Overall a drinkable example of the style..

Dark red pour, tan head. Spicy and Belgian yeasty nose with a nice strong spice flavor. A damn good Belgian dark ale.

At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Clear dark amber with a thin light khaki head. Malty caramel aroma with an unfortunate touch of cardboard. Taste is roasted caramel, dusty earthy malts, toast, and some dusty hoppiness. Not very good.

(draught) cloudy deep ruby-brown with creamy tan head. Nose of black cherry juice, cream, raisin, wet cardboard, port, Belgian yeast and star anise. Taste is more toasty than I’d imagine, cherries, fairly sweet, paper pulp, cream, raisin and dates with some spice elements. Creamy body and mild alcohol kick. Better as it warms.

Draft. Deep amber with a crewam head. Alcohol, sweet fruits, rich malts, and sherry? Nice on the palate, flavors are caramel, dried fruits, faint alcohol finish.

On draught at the brewpub (as "Father Damien"), served in a snifter. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruddy highlights. Medium thin light beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Rich malty aroma with some dark fruit notes. Medium to full body with a malty character and flavors of dark fruit, molasses and yeast. The finish is malty with a lingering yeast and caramel aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On tap at Maui brewing; amber color with aroma of plum and cherry. The taste was quite sweet, strong berry notes with the noticeable alcohol finish. Overall, OK beer but compared to true Belgium beers, it does not compete
