A really nice beer. Solid. Belgian yeast and candi sugar dominate. Alcohol takes a back seat. Pours a nice dark orange color as well.

Clear amber chestnut pour, off-white head. Lots of sweet malt, brown sugar, rather generic dark fruit flavor, and a bit of toffee and spice. I am finding this quite boring, also I am not a fan of this style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber->tulip: Pours a large, frothy head atop a dark amber body. Aroma of warm sugar, cookies, and vanilla. Taste starts out metallic, going moderately sweet on the palate with a medium body and rich mouthfeel. I would be really all about this beer, minus the metallic taste that is very prominent with each sip.

On tap at Proof, pours a deep red with a nice tan lacing, sweet cherry aroma, maybe some black currents, delicious. Very full bodied, very sweet, taking very small sips. A bit of roastiness coming on the back end, Iím loving this.

22 ounce thanks to Seth. Malty and sweet. Thin body. Alcohol is very present in nose and taste. Some caramel. Not terribly enjoyable.
