Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft - Dark malts, plum and berries. Deep jet brown with almost no head. Dark fruit, light berry and a light long finish. Not quite the body but still decent.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2014
Rated on 12-28-2011 (Draft at Graydonís Crossing-Grand Rapids, MI) This draft beer has a small tan head with a long retention, mostly opaque reddish brown body, no carbonation noted, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, dark fruits and spice. The flavor is sweet, caramel malt, dark fruits, and spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this is an easy drinking beer even at 10.5%ABV. It has a very good flavor, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Had on-tap at Dragonmead. Appearance: Black. No head on my beer at all. Kind of like black water or something. But letís be honest, appearance matters not. I mean... itís nice, but... you know. Smell: Prune/fig/grapes... dark fruit, dark fruit, dark fruit. Sweet and tart. Pleasing on the nose and very inviting. At 11%, thatís not there at all. Also, this beer doesnít have that almost overly sweet aroma that some others from the style have. Taste/feel: Exactly as the smell is, but that tartness is more obvious, as youíd expect. Sweet, but not too much so. Again, dark fruits all around. Maybe a slight sort of spiciness, but I donít know where thatís coming from. I was told this beer had a clear alcohol presence, but I didnít notice it. The warmth, sure, but nothing in the taste. Definitely a bigger sort of beer. Sweet, tasty, and a sipper. My favorite Iíve had from Dragonmead, Iíd say, and it seems that Iím not alone. A must-try if you visit the brewery.

Petkus331 (282) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 4, 2014
An aroma of pear and sweet bubblegum with a hint of acidic apple juice. Appearence is a purplish dark brown, no head. Tastes like an mildly sweet, acidic, and crisp asian pear with a balanced hay like bitterness and a touch of bubblegum on the end. Palate is fizzy and light, nice. Overall, great, this is one of my favorite beers from Dragonmead.

tectactoe (2348) - Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Tap: deep, dark brown body that appears black in the middle with some ruby tints near the edge; topped with a small, off-white cap that recedes into a thin collar rather quickly. Aroma has notes of spicy Belgian yeast, fruity esters, faint banana, plum, raisins, dates, phenol alcohols, white pepper, a hint of cocoa powder, & some licorice in the back-end. Similar taste with an apparent Belgian Candi sugar sweetness, coated over plums & figs with some deep onset toffee notes in the finish. Heavy alcohol & spice in the back-end, lots of Belgian-y yeast with some lighter clove & banana-like esters. Standard Belgian strong, not a bad offering, but itís quite potent.

Dark color beer with a malty flavor. Smooth. Has an unusual flavor, but I enjoyed it a lot.

kevinsenn (1146) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
On tap at Grand Trunk Pub, Detroit. Nearly opaque black, tan head. Aroma of sweet honey, with some light roasty notes. Taste has sweet tripel flavours (spice and light malt), with some roasty hints, and a dry finish.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2013
tap. Amber with small head. Pleasant aroma but downhill from there. Boozy and unbalanced. Sweet malt and rubbing alcohol. I donít understand who likes this brewery. Everything Iíve had from Dragonmead has pretty much sucked.

gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Sinfully sweet, per the DM belgian brews. I liked it in a snifter portion - but that was plenty. Molasses flavored rock candy melted into a glass with malt extract, and stirred with a ripe banana. A fun, silly, s-inspiring one.

Keir (172) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Draft at brewery. 04.22.2010. Deep auburn pour with thin tan head. Nose of candy sugar, bubblegum, subtle fruitiness. Taste of bubblegum, dark fruits, bananas, malty, sweet. Oily mouthfeel.
