COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

bhensonb (11138) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2014
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Batch 008. Opened with a decent pop, releasing a plummy cloud of vapor. Pours copper with a 4 finger frothy head. Aroma is something like plum, raisin cake and treacle. Med body. Flavor is treacle, raisin, plum/prune and a hint of chocolate. Certainly not dry, but itís within a tolerable range of treacle. Iím of two minds about it, but it makes me eager to try something like a tripel. Likin this!

lb4lb (2547) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Smell is raisins and light malt. Taste is thin, refreshing light rasiny malt. Not really sweet, which is nice. Thin and while on the lighter side flavorwise, it makes it drinkable for me since Iím not a huge fan of the style.

Medium brown pour, off white head. Nose is malt. Sweet. Middle is toffee, malt, hint of orange. Finish is still a little sweet, but not as much as the front.

brystmar (1261) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Boring appearance: zero head/lace. Medicinal aroma coupled with failed sour grain. Belgiany, funky, spicy, so much malt. Bleh; not for me.
