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.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown with a purple hue and a small (less than 1 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced down to a large puddle and medium collar with excellent full sheets of layered lacing. The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt and a sweet doughy Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, cinnamon, coriander and dark fruit (figs, dates, berries and overripe plums). The taste was a bold malty sweet with notes of caramel and dark fruit pretty much throughout, with the finish being a tad yeasty and having a mildly spicy alcohol ending. The flavor lasted and average duration following the swallow with a mild spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds along with a slow creeping alcohol warming sensation. Mouthfeel was just a bit under medium in body with a nice smooth creamy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a brew with a nice bold fruitiness which melded nicely with the Belgian yeast and the mild spiciness, allowing for a smooth and easy drinkability that hid the high ABV almost totally, except for a slight warming sensation towards the end...

draft that poured a nice big nose of sweet malts and dark fruits all blended nicely together. mild hops on the end. the flavor was very smooth of sweet malts and dark fruits maybe plums and cherries and possibly some raisin. there is a smooth alcohol burn on the end but nothing to really note of...very nice all the way around.

Old rating. On tap. Brown-reddish color. Bready, caramel, raisins, some bubblegummy Belgian aspect, some chocolate. Not bad. Not amazing.

Dark reddish-brown pour with thin tan head. Smells of raisins, toast, and alcohol. Heavy fruit flavor with some alcohol, but finishes pretty clean. Whats left is a nice malty lingering aftertaste.

Brewfoolery (34) - California, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Poured from a growler picked up at the tasting room. Clean aroma with almost a rose petal accent. Raisin and toffee notes follow. Pours Amber with a cream coloured foam that persists. Lacing lingers as you would expect. Clean malt taste with effervescent carbonic bitterness. Aftertaste lingers with a clean bite. For a 9.1 ABV ale, very refreshing

Thanks cards04 for the sample. Sweet dried fruit and raisins in the Aroma. Dark reddish brown body and off white head. Sweet malty bubblegum dried fruit taste. Solid Belgian ale.

Pours a dark maroon. Aromas are bready, boozy and dark fruit. Flavors are quite rich. Dark fruit, brown bread, and some booze. I like this.

It definitely is a dark ale not sure if I like them yet. I wouldn't go out of my way to get this one again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
