COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our modern day brewery resides in a historical funeral home of the 1900s. An undertaker has not walked these halls for many years … that is until now. The Undertaker has been resurrected in this dark ale fermented with our favorite house yeast strain. Expect a dark, sinister pour with roasted coffee notes, hints of black fruit dipped in chocolate, and subtle smokiness. You can try to resist, but sooner or later the Undertaker is coming for you.

Poured from an undated can. Dark brow, no head at all. Aroma is bread, yeast a hint of some roasted malts. Taste is has a bit of sweetness, dark fruit. Texture is a bit thin and creamy. As it warmed the flavors improved quite a bit. Nice beer.

16oz can poured into a belgian tulip. The aroma is mocha, lactose, bread dough, fig, and toast with minor, acute, ripe berries that turns to root beer and cola with bread dough by the drink’s end. It pours a muddy chocolate color with a thin, sudsy, dull tan head that has mild retention and lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is oily and slick with a slight foam carbonation and medium body. The flavor is initially bitter chocolate, coffee, earth, and a light creamy note that finishes with light herb, ripe, sweet dark berries and cream. This tails to herbal grit with astringent mocha notes, and a smokey note late along with minor seafood funk. The aftertaste is smokey coffee, toast, and grape jelly with herbs. It’s slight chalky.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a thin tan head that fades relatively fast. Aroma of bread, yeast, light spices, grain and a lot of caramel - very strong. Medium to Full-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong malt flavours with a big yeast and breadie flavour with some sugars and a touch of peat and some dry grass as well. Aftertaste is a touch creamy with some lactose, along with a herbal element, but a lot of roasted malt as well. Overall, a nice dark belgie with some interesting/new world/american characteristics with a solid complexity from yeast. Worth trying if you can find it, but not really worth searching high and low for! I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$2,69 sampled at home in Washington on 29-January-2016.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 2.5 S: Doesn’t smell like a Belgian beer at all. There’s almost no spiciness in there at all and no fruitiness either. Instead there’s a tangy roastiness and molasses type component. There’s a somewhat minerally aroma reminiscent of English beers. 2.0 T: Like the nose, this doesn’t taste at all like a Belgian. Again no spicy yeast or fruit. Tangy roastiness and caramel. A decent amount of roast. It’s like this is trying to be a stout, but only made it halfway. Lacking in all the wrong areas. 2.0 M: Lighter medium body. Moderate carbonation. Completely lacking creaminess or the spritziness that I love in Belgians. Slight tang on finish. 2.0 D: I was really in the mood for a Belgian brew when I bought this. This doesn’t taste anything like that. This also really doesn’t taste like any other style. Poorly made. ★ 1,000 characters DavoleBomb, Jun 29, 2015

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of dark fruit, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. It’d a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with dark fruits and a hint of chocolate. The finish has light roasted coffee and a hint of nuts. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Certainly chocolate in the aroma and a citrus note, I’m going with oranges. None of the aromas come through on the taste, which has some hop bitterness and wisps of smoke. A 16-oz can was more than enough for me.

Pour into stout glass, black, huge tan head. Aroma is chocolate, malt, tons of esters on it, raisins, sweet cherries, mild cold coffee. Flavor is cold coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, sweet cherry finish. Solid. Not the most complex, but it is a belgian-style stout for sure.

Poured from a can dated April 9th, 2015. Aroma is fairly malty with a nice roast character as well as some toasted bread. Nice fruit notes with some plum, cherry and raisin. Some light phenolic notes with a bit of pepper and a touch of alcohol spice. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a medium sized, fairly thin, dark tan head that recedes quickly to the edges and disappears. Small lacing and medium small legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with some light roast and toasted bread with a bit of chocolate as well. Some caramel and toffee as well. Moderate dark fruit notes with raisin, plum, prune and cherries. Some light phenolic spice notes with a bit of alcohol spice. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent beer with great malt notes and fruit esters. Some light phenolic and bitter notes.
