3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at Toronado. This beer needs to warm up quite a bit before it develops a Belgian characteristic. Aromas are faint of some toffee and some dark fruit. Flavors are fairly muted, but one gets some dough, dark fruit and caramel. Essentially a fairly muted interpretation of this style. Where is their Vesuvius? Bring it back.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Full Sail PIlsener Room. Hazy orange brown color, short head. Kind of belgian double but with loads of spices and liquorice. Overdone in my opinion, and body is too thin to handle the spices.

On tap at the 2008 Cheers to Belgian Beers event. Pours dark amber with a tall beige head. Soft caramel flavor, light hint of berry and raisin. Hops gave a sort of veggie green flavor that didnít sit well with me and made this a bit to bitter which kept the malts on the back burner a bit.
