3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Grain, toasted malt, and yeast notes comprise the aroma. A dark amber pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is mainly sweet. Toasted malts, candied sugar, with a grainy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Oveall, I was surprised that it actually had some enjoyable taste.

This beer is not that good. But it isn’t that bad either! Don’t bother drinking it though. Unless you want to drink an okay "winter" beer made by a company that also makes really shitty beer!

Smells of caramel and brown sugar. Taste is like mildly bitter toffee and kind of roasty. There is a slight caramel note. Aftertaste is medium length with bitterness at first and then wheat and caramel. Sharp but medium carbonation and slightly foamy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This isn’t a great take on Belgian ale but neither is it a total disaster. It’s a bright, red clear color w/ a long-lasting head of medium white bubbles. It smells a bit fruity and bubble gummy w/ an edge of apple and some earthy/toasty tones as well. This is a medium bodied and lightly sweet beer w/ moderately vigorous carbonation. It tastes pretty nice but does start getting a bit heavy pretty early on, esp. for a lower gravity beer. It overall seems clean and well-brewed but while there is nothing really wrong w/ it aside from the texture, nothing really jumps out at you as being particularly great either.

Bottle. Sweet caramel aroma, above average carbonation. Sweet caramel mouthfeel, sweet finish. Delightful!

At least I drank this one. Not much going on, but the hint of wheat takes the edge off this attempt at a dark beer. More toffee than dark fruit.

Very boring dark beer by Blue Moon brewing company. Very limited carbonation. Smells very flat with barely any hint of a deep aroma. The beer is brown-nutty in color and the texture of this beer is very thin. This beer isn't high quality and I don't think it is worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle pours a rich mahogany brown color with a small creamy beige head. Sweet toasted malt nose has notes of cane syrup and brown sugar. Sweet toasted malt flavor has a nutty pecan-like flavor that has a clinging, chewy mouthfeel. Slightly fruity with a touch of vanilla and grain in the finish.

12oz bottle -
A passable example of a Belgian ale. Aroma is sweet with caramel malts, raisins and cotton candy. Flavor is a bit watery, like a whiskey with too much ice. But it’s still drinkable. More raisiny like sweetness, some light caramel malts, a touch of banana with a kiss of toffee. I didn’t hate this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: medium amber brown with nice chestnut highlights; the head is tan, creamy, short, and quickly fading. Aroma: good nose of molasses, brown sugar, toffee, and lightly toasted nuts, with just a hint of cinnamon. Taste: caramel, light vanilla, light brown sugar, a bit nutty. Finish: watery finish, with a kind of syrup flavor but without the commensurate body. Notes: Flavors could have used substantially more balance through a better application of more traditional belgian yeast, rather than just (seemingly) relying on a dose of candi sugar. Palate was watery.
