UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 Brother Dewey’s. very nice Belgian esque beer. Sort of a lower ABV quad. Nice spice, with fruity sweetness from the dates. Lower carbonation. I like it. A lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At Flanny’s, amber red pour with a slight off white head. Aroma of some candy sugar and a faint cinnamon. Taste has some sugar spice with some good malt character. Not sure I get any dates, but still pretty tasty.

On tap at Whole Foods Chandler’s Watering Hole. Pours a clear dark burgundary. Not much aroma at all, just some subdued sweet malt and date tones. Slightly bitter malt forward with a very sweet date back that lingers but isn’t cloying; also some brown sugar, nutmeg, and faint coriander, but the spices are a little too muted. Medium texture, long finish. The date flavor in this winter warmer is just about the right amount; not "barely there" like some other date beers, but not overpowering either.
