4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle brought back from FL. Deep opaque brown-black with a massive beige head. Fruity aroma, some funky Saison undertones. Rich and bold, a lot of depth. Chocolate, caramel, fruity amber malt, spicy funky yeast tones. Great mouthfeel, soft champagne carbonation. Some champagne tones, with the alcohol clearly showing. Not unlike a Scottish Wee Heavy, but amped up..more going on. A somewhat boozy Belgian Scotch Ale. Bold and unique, quite a treat.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown almost black with a two finger mocha head that disapates into a solid ring around my glass with decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by Belgian yeast, banana aroma with a bourbon, malted aroma in the back. Taste follows the nose, still dominated by the yeast. As it warms it becomes more balanced with the malt. Drinks smooth and hides alcohol well. It’s not outstanding but its good and interesting. I’m glad to have tried it!
