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.

Hangover (1110) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Very dark brown pour with a lasting tan head. Aroma is chocolately with some roasty notes as well as vanilla. Full bodied, high carbonation. Mouthfeel is almost chewy and this one has a heavy roast flavor. Lots of dried fruit, plum, raisin towards the middle. Finish reveals some belgian phenols, banana, light citrus. Pretty interesting brew. Alcohol is evident. Definitely a sipper.

On tap at the 2009 Stone Sour Fest. Very nice Belgian ale. Roasted malts, some sour but faint. Pretty good stuff.

nickd717 (4108) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Tap at City Beer in SF. Dark brown - almost a little purplish or maybe it’s just the lighting - with a tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruits, hops, and a little yeast. Flavor is dark fruits (esp. cherry), sweet malt, candi sugar, slight roast, and more hops than I expected. Smooth and fairly full on the palate. Good but not great.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 20, 2009
On tap at San Francisco’s City Beer. By the way, great place I will rate it. Pours dark amber, medium to full bodied, not too sweet, presence of hops which give it a dry ending.

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.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2009
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.

Dorwart (2511) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2009
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.
