Bottle. Brown pour with off white head. Smells of toasted malts and yeast. Tastes of the same plus alcohol. Very good, balanced beer.

Pour is a clear, dark reddish brown with a bubbly off white head. Lots of candy sugar and dark fruits up front on the nose, slight booziness, dark fruits like cherry and plum, and slightly piney. A nice cherry taste up front, some vanilla, sweet belgian yeast, there is suprisingly subtle chocolate flavor, some alcohol, and caramel.

750ml bottle from appellation wines. Pours light brown with a good white head. Aromas of Belgian yeasty goodness, sugar, vanilla and a hint of candied orange. Taste delivers more of the same, with a great balance between sweet and bitter. Seriously good beer, could be mistaken for a great Belgian beer. Which makes me question why we are paying people to move ingredients from Belgium to the US, brew beer, bottle it, then move those bottles back to the UK!

750 ml bottle shared at tasting. Pours dark brown with a small fizzy head that fades quickly. Aromas are candy, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, and a light fruitiness. Taste is fairly sweet, caramel, chocolate, toffee. Some toasted malt too. Finishes with a Belgian yeast taste. Medium to thick body, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very smooth. Very nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light brown/copper with a spotty frothy head. Aromas of big caramel, slight toffee, ester of banana, hint of wood, and a hint of cherry. Flavors of banana, oak, slight alcohol in the nose, big caramel, toffee, and light bread. Medium sweet. Alcohol noticed not in the flavors but the nose and throat only. Would be better with age.
