Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
A hazed dark brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, dark fruits with light molasses, smooth vanilla, nice. In mouth, sweet fruity malt with light caramel malt, dark fruits, a bit too sweet.

neepsntatties (1233) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle. I actually had a bottle of this long before it hit my local (Portland) market. I had it when I was in Anchorage for the GABBF in January. Colour...dark but not black with little head. Nose...burnt fruit compote with a lean towards cherry and peach. There also some burnt sugar in there as well. Palate...mildly frothy with a vinous aspect to start and then a yeasty/fruity thing that reminds me of an orchard fruit cobbler melange. All in all I rather enjoyed this ale but it didnít seem like 8%.

tmoreau (2528) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co. showing decent clarity to the ruby highlighted, dark mahogany color, with modest, light tan foam that reduced quickly to a ring & film, but left some etched-like, ribbony lacing on the glass. The aroma was yeast, maltiness, brown sugar sweetness, dark fruit, a light scent of alcohol, with a slight touch of soapiness. Medium bodied at best, with soft carbonation, the flavor presented a medium but very dry hop bitterness that was rind-like and unusually astringent. Alcohol became more obvious, along with notes of plum, raisins, and berries. The dryness continued in the finish. Interesting,.. and leave it at that!

marcus (6692) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle shared by haggerty. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a dark molasses flavor with a noticeable Belgian yeast presence. What a strange combination. Very dry finish.

boFNjackson (4156) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle... Poured dark brown with a thin, khaki head. Tick mouthfeel. Warming alcohol with Belgian yeast esters, vinous tones, sweet candied malts, and toasted gains. Some breadliness added depth.

mikedR (1311) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
Unusual beer that defies categorization. A stout-like, lower ABV quad, or perhaps a dark Belgian imperial porter. Pours like a stout: thick, dark, and a yellow frothy head. Has somewhat sweet dark fruit tastes typical of a quad, without the Belgian carbonation. Strong malty backbone with a modicum of roastiness typical of a stout. Some lingering alcohol heat, but unusually this adds and doesn't detract from the overall experience. Interested in sampling more beer from this brewery -- they're more Mikkeller than Mikkeller is in willingness to push the envelope! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GothGargoyle (1364) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Nice deep brown with a good beige head. Aroma is rasins, brown sugar, dates, honey, hint of booze. Relatively thin bodied, sweet on the palate with a slightly boozy finish. Taste is raisins, dates, honey, Belgian yeast.

Bottle. Pours a murky dark brown color with a small tan head. Nose is kind alcohol with a big heavy sweet malt note of sugars and maple. Palate is thick with a nice bite and a dry finish. Flavors of molasses and caramel with sap notes and light fruits. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
