On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. Very dark, not quite black. Not much nose available as it’s a paddle sampler. Lots of roasted malts with a bit of hops. Tastes simple to me.

Brown pour, average head, and a mild aroma of malt, ripe fruit and a little Belgian ale yeast. Wish there were more aroma since what there is is pretty nice. Flavor is malty but not overly sweet, with hints of roasted malt, and ripe fruit including banana. The Belgian yeast is clearly in there and I think it works pretty well in this. Palate is ok, but not sure it matches what I would hope for with a beer like this. Finishes mildly bitter with the malt and Belgian spice notes hanging in there nicely. Seems slightly over-priced, but it’s tasty and worth revisiting. Unique.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
Bomber. Lots of sugar, dark fruit, good coffee,and some fumes in the nose. Drak ruby brown, with a creamy tan head. Mild coffee and dark malt initial / funky notes behind increasing coffee and some herbs finished smooth, watm, and leaves a bit of spice. Medium-thick body. Pretty goo. Doesn’t go very far in any one direction.

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that falls away quickly to a loose film. Big nose of sweet raisins, caramel, and molasses. Creamy medium with soft carb. All the sweetness is back for the mid-palate: raisins, molasses, caramel. Long sweet finish. Not bad. A little on the sweet and simple side, but no obvious flaws in a relatively ambitious beer.

On draught at Gigantic Taproom 2/16 for Zwickelmania 2013. Deep rock candy and caramel flavors. Mellow mouthfeel hides the alcohol content well.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, chestnuts, other dry dark fruits, and caramel malts. Flavour of toasted nuts, chestnuts, dry caramel malts, and slight spices. Definitely seems between a dubbel and quad, with spicy notes. Decent stuff.
