With Z, pours a dark Amber color with an ephemeral beige head. Nose is tart and acidic and yeasty . Taste is a nice confluence of malt and hips, blended nicely ....complemented by a nice dark fruit flavor. Finishes on the dark fruit notes with a nice smooth finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10

czar (7707) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
can. pours hazy dark amber-orange with a small off-white head, shy retention and lacing. caramel and sweetish spicy toasted nuts, brandied fruits - miscellaneous berries, some raisins - some of them rotten, peppery molasses, warming alcohol, bit of coffee berries, hint of sweetness - dark golden candi, belgian yeast. light carbonation - slightly lacking, light body - oily, grassy-spicy-earthy-peppery finish. all the elements for a dark belgian ale are present but all is pretty fainted and not very cohesive. still drinkable.

Bulk_Carrier (3709) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was centered around a decent hazy golden yellow to somewhat orange/light brown color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left some light lacing sticking nicely around the sides of the glass. The smell had some nice light Belgian spices up front and let in a slight sour lemon. The taste took the lemon and the Belgian spices to town and let in a decent citrus flavoring. It left a really dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp but nothing overbearing. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian pale ale worthy of having again.

draft at the pub. pours clear amber. nose is moderate to low level of belgian spice and ester characteristics with some raisiny malt notes. Flavor is similar. finish is moderately dry. good but would have liked a little stronger yeast character.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 01-10-2012. This canned beer pours a small beige mostly diminishing head, copper transparent body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, sweet and raisins. The flavor is upfront caramel malt, sweet, some raisins, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and even though there is not a lot going on with the flavor, it is still quite tasty. This is a beer I would drink again.
