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.

Friday. A large, strong bottle of beer while the wife and I go over house plans. Her strategy of getting some changes made that might very well work. Hard to resist a strong Belgium.

bomber to glass; not a ton of experience in this style but will be trying more - one word; caramel - that was prevalent everywhere and I enjoyed it; not much dark fruit. will try again.

Bottle: (2013 Vintage)
Cloudy brown with a thin, off-white cap.
Toffee and plum aroma.
Dark, sweet bread, plums, toffee malt taste.
Sort of like a slightly boozy candy bar...
Just gets better and better the more you taste and the warmer it gets.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red body with a creamy head.
Aroma and flavours of dried fruit and spicy belgian yeast. Moderetely sweet with light bitterness. Somewhat sharp taste, with a bit of alcohol.
Medium body with soft carbonation
This is a good belgian strong ale, but I expected more from AleSmith. There is no reason to return to this beer considering the alternatives from Belgium.
