Draft at Black Raven. Aroma: Dark fruit; like a stronger, fruitier version of their scotch ale. chocolate and leather.

Appearance: Dark ruby brown, clear, no head.

Taste: Dark, sweet fruits; little hop presence; sweet; rich; some alcohol burn, some caramel, some oxidation.

Palate: Syrupy texture; full body, soft carbonation.

Tap at the brewery. Deep copper pour, limited head. Aroma of scotch and scotch tape. (More like bourbon, really, but I thought myself clever for the phrase). Fairly sweet, entirely drinkable though not a standout in the style.

mikedR (925) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 18, 2013
This one is Nice. Smooth dark Belgian. I'm getting fruity notes, but not overly sweet, and fitting for its deep ruby color. Almost a chocolate aroma, but could be tobacco. Belgian tangy ness comes in a bit later, but sticks around. Some smokiness too -- quite a bit going on; complex! Easy drinking, and not particularly carbonated. Highly recommended! Sampled from bottle purchased at brewery on release day, 2013. A.

Nikiel (870) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2010
On tap at Black Raven, advertised as 9.9%Pours a dark red/brown. Tastes sweet with hints of raisins and ends sweet, but very alcoholic with hints of bourbon which become overwhelming as it warmed up.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of Belgian yeast aroma and flavors. Fruity with light spices. This was a pretty tasty beer.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Nose is yeasty and spicy with notes of toasted malts, lots of dark pitted fruity. Dark brown pour with a decently lasting head. Spicy belgian yeast notes, dark fruit, some toasted malts, Sweet and fruity. Some sugary notes as well. Sweet, spicy, fruity, and lightly alcoholic.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Draft at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a small off white head. Yeasty aroma of dried fruits, dates, dark bread, nuttiness, a little spice. The flavor has a hint of cocoa with the slightly sweaty leatheriness a lot of belgian browns seem to have, plus more dried fruits, earthiness, candy caramel sweetness, more spice. I really like this new batch.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
Red-brown with a tan head. Aroma of red/pitted fruit, sourdough and yeast with a bitter, dark fruit, raisinous taste and a crisp, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is slick and chewy with metallic notes. Quite nice.
