3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a foamy off-white head that stays a while. Nose is that dank aroma of Belgian brew with notes of prunes and dates. Taste is on the sweet side, but there’s a nice hop bite that follows the sweetness. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Tasty brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Heavy roasted and caramel for the malt, light cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with notes of date and fig. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with some slippery lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, syrupy, with a fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. A nice smelling Belgian Strong Ale with rich flavors, but it’s just a bit cloying in the finish.

From a 12 oz can. Pours a dark, murky, medium brown. Aroma is pumpernickel, dark fruits, roast, and molasses. Taste is similar but more robust with cherry, cloves & more cocoa. Palate is medium bodied. Decent beer but don't love the style.

12oz can. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Aroma is of wood, dark fruit, sugar, and caramel. Taste is not what I was expecting at all. It’s very woody, with lots of dark fruit, alcohol, and malt. Very sweet, with a very dry finish. Very boozy. Way more sugary than I expected.
