Draft @ the brewpub. Brune pour withe some off white head. Dark fruits and a spiced flavor notes have a slight metallic finish. Not sure what happened but ill give alchemist the benefit of the doubt.

In short: A basic fruity Belgian dark ale with a light spicy edge. Good beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Mostly clear ruby body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose of baked raisin pie. Taste is raisins dipped in caramel, sweet prunes, other dark fruits, light spicy notes (nutmeg and friends), pie crust. Creamy mouthfeel. It missed the yeastiness of a true Abbey dubbel and but it was nonetheless a decent American take on the style. I had a lot to drink in that little winter Vermont beer trip. I woke up in the ditch, got up and saw my own shadow. Six more weeks of drinking. Yeah!!!

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear amber with a brown hue and a grey head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced nicely. Aroma had notes of candied sugar, raisins, dates, and some sweet dark grains. There was a bit of backing spice. Flavor began with dates and raisins and finished more like a sweet bread with some candied sugar and the dates and raisins becoming backing notes.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy dark bruin body with a large off white head. Immediately struck by metallic notes, i have to think this keg went bad after talking with someone next to me who stated this had been better before. Dark fruit tones of cranberry, cherry, and a deep malty body. A medium warming with some light spices cinnamon and a hint of fig. Very sweet with again a tin metallic note. Ill score this slightly higher then my notes (2.6) for feeling that this was better at one point.
