11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

nuplastikk (5682) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Tap at Jacs, but this might have been the first Belgian beer I ever had in bottle form decades ago. Deep unfiltered brown, hints of burgundy. Foamy, beige head. A touch of dry aspirin, but more deep, dark fruit. Brown malt tones. Big yeast tones, otherwise a creamy big brown ale. Quite an excellent, classic example of a Belgian Brown. Almost medium bodied in the world of Belgian Ale. Caramel, molasses, brown sugar. Excellent.

Got this served straight from the draft. Dark brown beer, hints of red fruit and caramel. Sweet taste, but not too sweet like some of other dark beers. Pretty good beer, though i’d rather drink this in winter than summer.
