Bottle. Poured a rich copper color. Nose is sweet with Belgian yeast. Lots of fruit notes some fruity sweetness. Hints of chocolae and spice with a fairly creamy mouthful. The taste and feel of a classic Belgian dubbel with light spice notes. Nice.

Bottle from Rockland Beverage split with Tommy on Christmas. Pours a deep reddish brown with a light caramel hue and small to medium beige head. Aroma is immediate red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar, with some spicy notes. Smells nice. Palate is a mix of spice, vegetable, dried fruit and malt. Earthy character to it. I wish it were a little more balanced or carbonated. Medium to heavy mouthfeel.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Deep and dark brown, opaque with mahogany edges, fluffy tan foamy head that lasts and bubbly lace. Super candy sweet aroma with a faint touch of spice. SIlky smooth feel. Starts sweet, a touch of burn from the alcohol (which is surprising at 7.5%) develops into a little bit of bitterness from the roast, no real hop flavor. Tatstes a bit salty, almost like it was oak-aged. Slightly peppery alcohol and spice in the finish which last a bit. Clove and maybe ginger in the end. Very nice.

Bottle. Attractive deep brown. Active carbonation. Spicy aroma like a Belgian ale. Slightly chemically smell, cherries, berries, spices. Round, warm flavor. Malty, toasty, sweet. I’m surprised at the low rating. I like it.
