Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Draft at the Lounge in Boca. Snifter. Pours a deep brown with a small white head. Some lacing throughout the snifter. Aroma of toffee, dark fruits, spices, and traditional Belgian yeasts. The taste is quite pleasant of Belgian yeasts, dark fruits, dark candy sugars and a relatively large hop profile. It is a bit slick and oily with a medium-full body. Finish is Belgian yeasts and a sweetness. They did another nice job with this one.

This particular beer, from Funky Buddha, is delivered in an appropriate-for-the-style tumbler glass. The beer, even in the low and sometimes hard to see in light of the Lounge, is dark ruby brown. The aroma is mild, but with clove-like esters and a bit of toffee coming through. The taste first hits with that unmistakable flavor of yeasty ester that every Belgian-lover knows, and then transforms into treacle or golden syrup (something akin to the sugar profile of honey) and honeyed nuts. It finishes off only mildly with earthy hops, but nothing too bitter: only enough to get you interested in having another taste. The mouthfeel is slightly thick, and has a moderate carbonation level. At 6.8% abv, it’s floating under what many might call the ’Belgian strong ale’ category, but won’t hammer you out after 16 ounces. In other words: drinkable.
