Batch 8. Pours murky light brown, apple cider appearance. Beautiful aroma of cloves, funky yeast, Belgian candi, and a subdued nuttiness. Very appealing nose. Taste follows the nose; sweet toffee, dark fruits, banana and spices. Sweetness is neutralized by faint hops, smooth finish.

Bottle. 2007 vintage. Hazy deep amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of raw sugar, raisins, toffee, port wine, light sweet alcohol and light oak. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, toffee, raisins and toast. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good, has aged well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep cranberry-orange, the color of a well-made Manhattan. A fuzzy, dense tan head atop deposits lovely lacing. The aroma blends toffee, candied pecans, red apple, cotton candy and a bit of pear -- smells like the fair. The flavor is more Belgian than the nose, interestingly, with more green apple and pear along with a hint of banana, pepper and burnt sugar. Soft medium body, moderate fizzy carbonation. Not the best example of a Belgian brew, but decent nonetheless.

Bottle purchased at Elevated and consumed at Nagy’s new pad. Mug as drinking vessel. Copper. Off white head. Aroma is more malt and grain than I anticipated. Sugars and caramel as well. Taste has malt and caramel/toffee notes. Maybe honey too. Syrupy mouthfeel. Aftertaste of Belgian candied sugar. Reminds me of mid level Belgian ales. Good, not great.

Draft at Avery. Caramel aroma and taste. Somewhat standard quad which of course means it still tastes great.

From the tap the pour is auburn dark red and clear with a thin white head, aroma is distinctly Belgian - yeasty and deep carmel notes, gentle roasting notes a little banana, finish is heavier but overly thick. It is a solid beer, a great malty sipper.
