3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Batch #7, bottled January 31, 2014.
Appearance: The body is a clear amber, reddish, and chestnut, really an interesting color. The head is short lived, a very light tan, settling into a foamy and thin coating.
Aroma: The aroma is a nice chalky banana with hints of chocolate with a slight creamed corn aroma and a subtle yeast spiciness along with s subtle potpourri aroma.
Taste: The flavor is exactly in line with the aroma. Nothing more to add here.
Palate: Medium bodied with mild to moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is really mediocre in my opinion. I feel like I’m picking up DMS. Other than that this is decent, but not worth buying again for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a ton of sediment. Nose is Belgian yeast, dark fruits, doughy, fruit ester, almost a caramel sweet note. Taste starts off almost like a dubbel or quad, with dark fruits, Belgian yeast, very fruity, spicy yeasty note. There's a lot on the finish, it's very sweet with a ton of ripe banana, caramel malt, chewy. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, well carbonated. Kind of one note, it's fine but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 bottle. Pours almost clear radiant chestnut with a off white dense head and decent lace partially lasting. Aroma is ripe dark candied fruit and roasted nuts. Flavor is very fruity sweet, reminds me of dried candied fruit, but not cloying with a substantial earth and yeast bitterness. Feel is full, dense, fairly lively, with a long moderately bitter and slightly astringent finish. Very nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Great looking beer on tap - chestnut brown body with a durable off white head. Nose was heavy malt, with slight brown sugar notes. Typical heavy Belgian characteristics. Nicely made, but nota style I care for.

Bottle to glass. Cloudy brown pour with white head dissipates to nice collar. Malty brown sugar aroma with bits of candied ginger and orange. Taste is malty sweet with a bit of alcohol warmth. Smooth strong ale that’s very enjoyable. Touches of rye?
