3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Moth. Pours with a hazed brown hued body with a small off-white head. Aromas are of brown sugar, plums, prunes, dark fruit, nutty, malty and earthy. Light alcohol aromas for the ABV. Flavors are of dates, dried plums, dark fruits, low chocolate, nutty, estery, a hint of roasty or pale chocolate malt. A touch of spice from somewhere (I am assuming phenols, but could be hops). Complex although slightly muddled yeast character. Medium bodied, balanced carbonation, somewhat warming.

Deep brown color with a big foamy head. Sweet ripe fruit nose. This is a sweet beer with malt powder, light brown sugar, some buttered toast, puffed wheat and toffee. Fruity flavors of really ripe apples and plums. The alcohol is very well disguised. Decent American Belgian strong.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour: Opaque dark brown....a little cloudy. Nice, long lasting frothy head. Smell: Dark malts, yeast & alcohol. Taste: Dark malts, hops, yeast, raisin and light chocolate. A slight alcohol bite! Dark AND Hoppy w/o plenty of yeast! It is a filtered beer- which keeps it from being overly rich! Would be great on a cold night or to go into storage. An A dark beer
