On tap at Stone Sour Fest 2009. Dark brown with nice white carbonated head. Aroma of dried fruit and cherries. Aroma is not very strong. Taste is very nice, a bit tangy and dry but not over the top.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque reddish brown with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is full of dark fruits with an interesting jarred olive component. Flavor is quite sweet with a slightly jarring bitter hoppy followup. Not thick and syrupy (thankfully). Alcohol is prominent. A bit strange but still a decent Belgian inspired though clearly American beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good sized light brown head of fine bubbles. Reduces slowly and lasts a long time. Rich, malty and spicy aroma with some plums, ginger and toasted malts. Color is a hazy dark brown. Lots of dark malts, juniper, roasted grains and a hint of smoke late swallow. Noticable alcohol presence but not overpowering. Finishes sticky and malty with some lingering spices. It has been a while since I have had a nice dark belgian strong. I like this one a lot.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a large frothy brown head that retained for a long time due to the vigorous carbonation. The nose is fruity dark malts with a bit of alcohol, and heavy candi and brown sugars. The flavor is sort of non-descript, dark fruits and a heavy yeast influence and prominent alcohol. A lot of residual candi sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is heavy and thick with a cloying stickiness and soft fizzy carbonation. Very very warming. Overall, this was just not that big of a pleasure to drink. Big and messy. Stick to IPAs and hoppy stuff Green Flash!
