Draft, pours an amber body with an off white head. Big boozy body with some light oak, toast, and sweet toffee tones. Sugary and sweet with a modest warming, and some milder spicy earth tones to finish. A big messy and big, eh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BT> Pours a hazy deep murky amber with a weird grayish tint and a thinning head. Aroma is big spicy sharp phenolic and Belgian yeast sweetness, toffee, molasses, huge candy sugar, beet sugar, etc- with ginger and floral flowery notes, big black fermented tea. Flavor is beets, earth, spicy garlic, sharp phenolics, spicy- black peppery, cardamon harshness and finishes a bit too syrupy and sweet as well with a harsh phenol and solvent kick. Meh.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a light copper. Nose is malty and a bit tart. Starts slightly tart then the Belgian yeast and flavors take over. A bit of warmth. Some light fruit notes too. Ends a bit acidic and a touch sweet. But pretty good.
