4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml Bottle. Pours a deep amber/burgundy color with a cap of beige foam and bubbles. Aroma has notes of brown sugar, vanilla and dark fruit in addition to some toffee and alcohol around the edges. The taste opens up with lots of candi sugar, caramel and Belgian yeast flavors along with some toasted malt, raisin and black cherry. Toward the end there’s a bit of cocoa, plum and woody alcohol in the background. The body is silky smooth and creamy with heavy carbonation and a dry, malty finish. Overall, a rich malt bomb with just enough of a Belgian influence to hold all the massive flavors together.

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.

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.

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.
