3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent dark copper with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of Belgian yeast with a fairly sweet malt profile and soft notes of dark fruit. Pleasantly dry on the palate. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate yeast balanced sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

Nice dark amber color with an off-white head. Very malty aroma with lots toasty caramel notes and yeast aromas. Big malt flavor with just a bit of tartness on the finish. Interesting brew, easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unclear light to mediim brown with small white head. Aroma seems light smokey malt and moderately sweet. Flavor is light smoked malt, light roast, moderate sweetness. Just enough hop presence. Crisp. Smooth. Moderate dryness. Clean. Good but not exactly special I guess.

draft poured deep red color with white head...some lacing on glass...massive malt nose with some dark fruit present..the flavor again is a massive malt base...sweet with caramel present on the front end and some dark fruits mid way thru and on the end. there is some bitterness mixed in but doesn’t take away from the flavor.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours ruby/amber with a beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and pale malts, hints of tartness, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a semi-cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Notes of amber and caramel malts, earth, nuts, toast, and a little bit of dried dark fruit, but not that much. Light-medium bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at The Beer Trappe. Amber with caramel and a bit of nutty flavor.Pretty different in taste. Not yeasty as I would expect a Belgian. For the red...I get a little of that red in it. Maybe slight cherry.
