paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Poured into a snifter. Sinister Minister pours an extremely rich mahogany, with a slightly tan head, with a low retention rate, which leads to decent lacing. Aromas are of sweet malts, raisins, candi sugar, spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Sweet malty taste, spices, fall fruits, molasses. It kind of reminds me of a less carbonated Trois Pistoles. Crisp, clean and smooth mouthfeel. Not as carbonated which is nice. Very good drinkability. This is the first pro-am I have had, and it is a great one to start with.

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2009
22 oz botle. Pours a clear chestnut brown body with a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is nutty and yeasty, with some light coffee and dark fruits. Lots of Belgian yeast character here in the flavor. Some dark fruits, heavy yeast, a little coffee on the back end, and finishes off with a bit of peppery alcohol. Medium bodied with a somewhat watery texture and fizzy carbonation. I wish that this were a little softer and rounder feeling. OK beer, but nothing great.

Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear reddish pour. Dusty malts in the aroma. Tastes of dry malts and clay flavoring. Earthy tones.
