Dark brown pour, solid tan head. Nose is yeast, dark fruit, and a splash of alcohol. Bittersweet. Middle is cherries and dark roasted malt. Finish shows a bit more alcohol, and some lightly woody hop character. Went really nice with a pork barley stew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice.
A - brew smells fruity, spicy, a bit malty, and boozy.
A - Pours beautifully. Very dark Amber and an appropriate level of murkiness for a Belgian. The light tan head looks silky as ever!
T - taste is fruity and boozy up front, which continues through the middle of the sip while revealing some maltiness. The finish reflects spices and a hint of pine.
P - Feels wonderful in my mouth! Beer is full-bodied with a tight carbonation. Smooth, but very bubbly.
O - Definitely a great beer. I am a very big fan of Belgian ales and this one didn’t disappoint. It’s true to the Belgian strong dark ale style--Big, fruity, spicy, and boozy. It doesn’t push the style’s boundaries by any means. But I don’t think that’s what the brewers at Brooklyn set out to do with this beer. So with that, I consider this beer a success!

750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy deep brown with a huge light brown head. I’d say over carbed a bit. Aromas of sweet malts, light dark fruits. Taste is sweet with a clean finish, slightly metallic.

Brown body, clean. Brown malts, bready, spice, dark sweetness. American yeast but not dull at all. Not extreme but we’ll made. Perhaps a bit too much co2 in the nose. Looks and drinks great though. Well developed! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark chestnut, almost a cola brown, with a thick and frothy buff head that pillows after a couple minutes. Aroma has roast malt, caramel, woody, and subtle honey tones. Flavor starts with toasty malt and then cues caramel, nutty, earthy, and shy honey notes to add to the sonata. Firm texture is smooth, yet fairly tingly, so it goes down well, leaving a caramel and earthy finish. Support your local!
