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.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2009
Draft at the brewery. A dark red-brown beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and caramel, as well as lighter notes of roasted malt. The flavor is very sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also lighter notes of roasted malt.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Thanks LtDan. Dark brown pour, moderate tan head, only temporary lace. Fruity malt and alcohol and the nose. Aroma has good travel and duration. The malty flavor is equal parts dried fruit, fig and prune, and a sour flavor somewhere between sour cherries, sour milk, and plastic. Dry-hopping evident is a lemon-citric shine on the finish. Medium body, smooth palate, strong warming.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Soapy aroma along with some yeast and spice. Brown mahogany hued body with biege head. Flavor has some sweet sugary candy, licorice, medium texture to the body with some alcohol presence. Smooth on the palate with mild sweet, roasty, spicy aftertaste. Ok beer.

Sammy (9199) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2009
Very nice grand cru though on the sweet side. Pours dark and rich chocolate looking, with a thin bubbly head surrounding it. Malty aroma. A sipper with rich malt taste, above average mouthfeel. Satisfying and spicey, cardomon.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Pours clear dark brown with an off-white head. Medium body and carbonation. My tastebuds were kinda shot at this point, so all I really have is numbers.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Bomber poured into an English pint. This beer pours hazelnut brown with a large persistent head. The aroma is slightly sour, acidic and very reminiscent of Belgian yeast. The flavor follows the aroma with the addition of nicely roasted grains and nuts in the finish. This is a multifaceted beer that changes dramatically over the course of the swallow.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Sampled from bottle. Nose of dark chocolate, soft fruit, and earthiness. Flavor fronts dried fruit and dark chocolate early on, followed by earthiness, and more fig-like fruit. Finishes dry and slightly spicy.

patrick767 (3696) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2009
bottle at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours dark amber with a light tan head. It has an aroma that’s full of dark fruit. The flavor is a sweet, dark fruit accented malt. Some good balancing hops comes through in the somewhat dry finish of this full bodied brew.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2009
A lasting light brown foam remains atop the cola dark brown pour. Aromatic beer boasting a proud lineup of hops with their flowery hints that deepen the otherwise Belgianesque/weizenesque yeasty (banana cake, pudding, phenols) and fruity (very strong plum notes) foundations. In mouth, a strong liquorice aspect stays to the forefront while subtler bubblegum and various fruits never manage to overtake the beefy biscuity/toasty maltiness. Very sweet, thick-bodied, but the considerable hop bitterness manages to keep the wheels on track as far as I’m concerned. To me, this is a rather unique beer in the mold of what Lagunitas aims at: chaotic strong beers, more or less balanced, but in the case of this Green Flash example, I fell under its viril charms.
