Just like a woman, this beer is extremely satisfying. The complex variety of grains produce a rich malt taste with a hint of raisin.

Bottle. Aroma is burnt malts and chocolate. Notes of hops, dark fruit, and and coffee come out as well. Palte uis chewy and dry. Flavor brings out the coffee and coffee. Damn good.

Sign above brewing equipment lists 6,048 barrels brewed to date. During second and third visit to Calumet brewery this year, this beer pours a clear coppery amber brew with a healthy and thick off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film and off-white ring. Excellent sticky lacing in glass. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops and a touch of honey. Taste is soft, medium bodied with very light natural carbonation. Finish is smooth, creamy with a dry bitter aftertaste. For a Belgian Ale, this beer is missing the citrus/orange and yeasty flavors, though it has a character close to an English ESB. Though the beer board lists this as "Belgium Ale" the brewmaster informed me that this is actually the Calumet B.B. Belgian Ale.

Dark copper color with a full off-white head. Aromas of pale malt, light honey and floral hops. No real Belgian qualities detected. Pale malt and light caramel flavors along with a touch of toffee and sweet herbal hops. Nearly too clean and "simple" ale like. Not much spice or yeast in this one. Still a nice drinking ale.
