3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a two finger khaki head that vanishes leaving no lace. Very dark brown color, yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Brown sugar nose and flavor is molasses and brown sugar but not cloying. Higher ABV is hidden. Expensive at $9.99 for a 500ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Churchkey. Deep red pour. The nose and flavor are bursting with sweetness; raisin, molasses, apple, brandy.... apple brandy..... plum, candied sugars, and caramel. The flavor is much of the same, but it’s a bit too much; cloying, and syrupy sweet. Ehhh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark garnet pour with a small off white head. Huge dark fruit and bread in the nose lead to a flavor full of raisin, date, molasses, caramel, and fig. Massive sweetness- just too much for me. Thick cloying palate with low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep clear copper with a big creamy beige head that recedes slowly to a solid cap.
Aroma is very sweet with lots of cane sugar and caramel malts. Plenty of booze soaked fruits, plums and raisins especially.
Taste is more of the same though it’s actually a little less sweet than I was expecting. There is lots of cola-like sweetness with cane sugar, various dark fruits and vanilla. There is more of the Belgian yeast coming through which evens the sweetness a bit.
Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy and well carbonated.
I really thought this was going to be a diabetes-inducing beer given the title and the nose but the taste is more balanced than that. Really solid Belgian dark.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is dark brown with some red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma is huge brown sugar, candied sugar, hazelnut, and a pinch of Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite cloying, but for some reason it works (maybe because of the name?). Heavy brown sugar, some dried fruit, and a finish of yeast and alcohol. Medium bodied.
