3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep red with a medium light tan head. Aroma is Belgian yeast with overtones of lemony sourness. Taste is initially Belgian yeast (which overwhelms me as Iím not a Belgophile) and bready thickness, but it quickly gets smooth chocolatey overtones and maybe some red ale-like qualities. Definitely a hybrid beer, tastewise anyway. Overall, I just had a meal.

335ml can at my daughters house in Orange County, California on 1st May 2016. Red hue to the body, creamy topping. Cinnamon aroma and initial taste, malty flavour with a fig trace within the fairly sweet brew. Decent, but just a little too sweet in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2016 Can, deep red amber, cream colored head. Aroma is malt, vanilla, dried fruit. Taste is malt, spice, dried fruit, vanilla, booze, citrus rind. Palate is fairly rich. This is slightly sweet, and then bitter. I donít like the balance on this at all.
Ok, my taste buds were broken when I rated this. The day after its much better. Spice, toast, raisins and figs.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a murky dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a mix of molasses and dark fruit. Also a big candi sugar sweetness. Flavor is a sugar covered plum with dark candi sugar aftertaste. Very sweet beer but has a nice dark fruit flavor with a little tootsie roll after the swallow. More dopplebock than Belgian dark but stll plenty flavorful albeit sweet.
