Pours a ruby-caramel color with a light tan head. Caramel, toffee, sweet bread, cola, and hints of Belgian spiciness. Big and round on the palate. Pretty sedate flavors. Sweet toffee and caramel come through first. The Belgian spice is more prominent than is in the nose. Cola is noted, though less recognizably than in the aroma.

Pours a murky brown with very little head.I get dark cherries, plums and sweet malts on the nose. It tastes rich, even reverential, with lots of sweet malts and dark fruits. Bit of booze at the end.

This Belgian string ale was on tap. Had the characteristic complex, malty flavor one expects. The yeast flavor characteristic of a Belgian was evident and very present. This is an excellent American effort that I would consider quite competitive in flavor and quality with the best American and European offerings in this style. Just a tint of soap flavor in this grog. Take that w a grain of salt. Could be me!

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with off-white head. Aroma of sour apple, malt, alcohol with similar taste, including a bit of caramel. A little sweet. Good carbonation. A little thin-bodied for the style. Not bad, but not really noteworthy.

Aroma: malty with apple undertones; some alcohol; Appearance: dark amber with lots of carbonation but not much head; Taste: very sweet with apple juice flavors; some maltiness; not much complexity; Palate: full body with soft carbonation; sweet finish; Overall: disappointing; drinks smoothly considering the ABV; really don’t care for the apple juice coming through; wouldn’t buy again.

Pours murcky brown lightly carbonated with the tan head. Real big aroma of caramel and sweet toffee sugars. Flavor has hint of banana and bigger sweet sugars and toffe and more caramel in the flavors. Finishes real rich and a little cloying but ok for style.
