Pours clear copper with a quick white head. Nose is tame and mostly a sugary sweetness with a touch of hops and booze. flavor profile and similar without any aspect of the beer standing out. very sticky and a bit warm. decently balanced but underwhelming for the style.

Dark brown. Fruity, spicy from the yeast, rich and sweet, with raisins, toffee, molasses. Pretty fun quad. Not up there with the best of the Belgians, but pretty decent and enjoyable.

Bottle to tulip. Pour is a cloudy ruby brown with a light beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, fig, plum, raisin, and general malty aromas. Taste is white and brown raisins, dates, plums, molasses, and sweet malts. Thin mouthfeel for a quad but no visible alcohol. Nice beer.

Bottle. Pours amber in color. Aroma is sweet, almost honey like. Taste is bready sweet with a metallic/coper finish/aftertaste. Not one of my favorites.

Tap at new bohemia. Mahogany with small white head. Slightly boozy sweet nose. Really nice sweet taste. Great body. Some dark fruit and light syrup. Definitely has a Belgian feel. Amazing finish. Great beer. Preach on, reverend.

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!

With Z , a bomber, pours a copper orange color with a small head. Nose is malt and dark fruits. Taste is heavy malt with dark sweet fruits as well, with a hint of some alcohol. Finish is dry and ends on the same sweet tasting notes. Nice ! Quaff Score 8 / 10
