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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6375) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a large foamy beige head. The aroma is candied fruit, caramel, molasses and a light yeasty undertone. The flavor was nutty and malty with notes of caramel, candied fruit, a touch of molasses and a hint of spice. Faint alcohol shows through. The finish was long and the beer was fairly full bodied. Well done.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bomber from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: It pours a clear reddish brown body with a beige head that soon reduces to a ring. The aroma is spicey and yeasty, has some dark berries, caramel, floral scents, and alcohol. The flavor has all that as well has charred raisins, a floral/earthy bitterness, burnt toast, and more alcohol. The finish is dry and warming. Pretty nice.

Mora2000 (6136) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Pours dark brown with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with dark fruit. The flavor is Belgian yeast and cand-dugar with some dark fruit mixed in. The alcohol is present and is warming. A pretty basic Belgian-inspired beer, but nothing special. Still, I don’t think anyone will be disappointed if they try it.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
translucent deep tan pour with bare film head and low carb. aroma is lightly boozy, rocky yeast and well developed caramel. flavor is nearly cloying malt flavor that lingers, lightly spicy and some prune. yeast provides some counterpoint to gigantic caramel but not quite enough.

HonkeyBra (3995) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Very dark brown pour with little head. Aroma of yeast and dark sugars. Raisins, a bit of bread. Flavor has a nice yeast flavor, but a bit of cocoa, roast, and some burnt wood. Figs, plums, raisins, etc. Its pretty good, I guess. It’s only vaguely belgian.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle. Darker pour with foamy white head. Notes of dried fruits, complex maltiness, belgian yeastiness. Some booziness. Rich malt flavor with raisins, grapes, & mild spice. Decent complexity, pretty good
