I don't know why this only gets a 3...it's great. Rich caramel malt fills the mouth and calm to a mild, slightly sweet malt while the alcohol warms. Very good!

A beautiful glass of beer. Color is a deep red amber. I will have to update my rating in the future...I have a cold and my taste is way off...I was hoping to be able to enjoy some of the distinct flavors attributed to this brew but it isn’t happening. The best I can say is that it must be quite flavorful because I can taste it and I detect absolutely no bitter whatsoever.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear ruby with a moderate tan head. Nose is a bit strange and earthy without the expected Belgian notes...not much nose at all. Flavor is stronger to the backside With darker and sweeter malts coming out balanced against a touch of hops and what taste like light Barrel aging. Not as good as I had remembered but might be a bad keg.

Can. Pours lightly hazy amber with a creamy off-white head. Strong malt aroma, toast, ripe fruits, brown sugar and dates. Medium sweet flavor with some grapes, toasted bread, alcohol and wood. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish. Decent. Thanks for the trade JB

Soft mouthfeel but lacking in aroma. The taste is robust w/ belgian spice & has a hint of bitterness in the finish. Nice beer!

Light reddish-brown, clear, persistent beige head. Malt character of dark bread, baker’s chocolate, raisins and dried figs, spicy Belgian phenols, cinnamon, a hint of licorice, and an earthy, damp-cave character. Finishes dry and spicy. Well made spiced Belgian dark strong.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Pours a beautiful deep burgundy. Aroma is dark fruits, figs, strong cherries. Taste is fruited bread pudding with yeasty / chalky floral flavors on the finish. Solid American Belgian Strong Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cleanish, with a good tan head. Aroma of dried fruits and sugars. Taste is a bit different, smooth and rich, notes of malt and a bit sweet. A very good beer, a bit more than a typical Belgian. Thumbs up!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of malt funk, metal, licorice, toffee, dark fruits and tangy malts. Pours a dark brown with a crimson tint and lively carbonation. Taste brings assertive carbonated dark fruit, black cherries, blackberries, raisin, malt funk, toffee, musty grape juice and merlot. Finishes with Belgian yeast funk and old pomegranate. Overall, a moderately decent brew with funky overtones. Nothing really stands out though.
