Bottle. Moderate roasted grain, cereal, and chocolate milk for the malt, light to moderate cooked orange and perfume for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with brwon sugar, date, toffee, and a hint of vinegar. Head is small, creamy, light tan, with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting, Color is muddy, medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. A bit more tart than most Abbey Dubbels, but still a nice well rounded Belgian.

Bottle shared by portableparty! Hazy brown pour, nice head and lasting lasting with a light brown sugar and plum aroma. Flavor is more plum, a bit nutty with hints of clove. Not bad. Would certainly pick up if the price was right.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Nose is dark fruit and caramel. Taste adds some roastiness, chocolate malt and nuttiness. Palate is a little thin but smooth. This is very good but could use a little more body.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yet another one where I can’t compete with loineshawn’s rating. 750 ml beer from Secret Santa last time I did it. This was a geyser as soon as I cracked the cap just a little. Took 6 glasses to contain the foam. It sprayed all over the table, the floor, my clothes, my keys and phone on the table, and other people’s shit. Made a fool of me in front of 6 other people. The massive rocky beige head finally developed a hint of an amber beer underneath. It smelled fine; sweet malts, dry grains, dark fruits. A little metal in the flavor. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation from what little beer was left. Dry mouthfeel. My keys still smell like beer. Fuck this asshole beer.
