COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian Style Dark Ale is inspired by traditional Abbey Ales to deliver the richest of malt flavors but with a slightly elevated hopping and increased complexity given from two different yeast strains. This malt laden ale is designed to satiate and keep your taste buds dancing.

Pours a nice dark brown color with a thick cream head. Aroma is molasses, hops, caramel, nutty, dark fruit, cereal. Taste is sweet, dark malt, molasses, bread, caramel, nutty, slight fruit, and then a kiss of bitter at the end. Very drinkable, warms up nicely, good beer.

A foamy dark pour with amber highlights. The aroma is sweet and nutty, with dashes of yeast, hazelnuts, and flowers. Interesting flavor - bready and nutty, with some brett mingling with the nippy hops. There is a little coffee in there too. Surprisingly high ABV. Another fine brew from Green Flash.

Poured from a 22oz. Isn't know what to expect when I read "mysterious dark ale" on the label. Even more confused when a dark stout-like beer came flowin out with a coffee-foam head and nice malty ale aroma. Great smooth taste of chocolate, and molasses with some sweetness. This drinks like a stout but doesn't drop off to a bitter ending. It stays relatively balanced throughout. No boozy taste, which is remarkable, given the 9.1% batting average. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep, dark fruity flavors on top of a caramel malt. Smooth and full, fairly strong, just a bit of hoppy bitterness.

Dark brown pour with one finger of off white head. Aroma is bread with caramel and a bit of roasted cereal. Slight yeast and hop as well. Flavor is light to moderate with a slight booze finish. Delicious beer.

On tap at Dexters, pours a dark brownish red with a light brown head, the aroma is really sweet, dark fruit and malt, the flavor is very sweet too, lots of Belgian candy notes with some dark fruit and yeast, abv is pretty hidden behind all the sugar like flavors, meh.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2014
Flaske: Mørk ravfarvet klar øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Duften er maltbaseret med et hint af belgisk gær men også portvinsnoter som en engelsk barleywine. Smagen er meget maltdomineret og en tand kedelig. Ikke meget krydderi kan smages.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkel rötliches Bierr mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, Gewürze, röstmalzig. Geschmack süß röstmalzig, hefig fruchtig, erinnert schon fast an ein Weizenbock.

Brown colour, some beige foam. Medium body, medium carbonation. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar and hops. Balance between sweet and bitter. Good but nothing special.
