On tap at Greenbush Brewpub. Deep clear mahogany with a thin tan head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dark candi sugar, brown sugar and mild fruit. Taste is sweet with a dark candi sugar, dark fruit, yeast and mildly over-roasted malt. Finishes up fruity and semi-dry.

Bottle share courtesy of Rick. Belgian with nice woody notes. Brown, kind of thin body, soft airy head. Kind of sweet, yeast pulls through.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2011
bottle... good looking beer, really nice dark mahogany, light cream head doesn’t last long... the aroma is light caramel, yeast, coffe and brown sugar... tastes like a Belgian brown ale with yeast, a bit of bubblegum, coffee, chocolate, and malt... unique and interesting, worth trying

jake65 (3368) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle share. Brown color with a small ring of beige head. Aroma is a light roast, earthy bits, and a little Belgian yeast. Taste is a little on the roasty side, lightly sweet, faint spice, and the Belgian yeast again.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the source... Pours a less than cola like pour, somewhat transparent and topped with a quickly dissipating head leaving virtually nothing... Dark fruit, cocoa with a little chocolate. Some banana and that same yeasty profile consistent with most of their beer actually... Sweet toffee and lighter cocoa with more of that similar yeast influence. Mostly sweet, honey-like through the middle with a modicum of distant earthy bitterness on the backend. Just bigger than medium bodied with light to medium carbonation.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Not knowing the style when I pour, it looks like a brown ale with a tiny head. Closer nasal inspection reveals a light, spicy Belgian aroma. Wait, its not an abbey dubbel maybe just a Belgian Strong. Similar in flavor to 3 of the othe GB beers today though. Definately an alcohol burn with a toffee and chocloate flavor. Lasting, long finish.

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared during a sharing of the Advent Calendar (conclusion!) on March 30. The pour is a medium brown with a soft ring of white head and no lacing. The aroma is strong on the malt characters. There is a light caramel and dark fruit character, but I like how the malt is pretty dominant here. The flavor is more yeasty and typical of a Belgian. There is some decent maltiness throughout the flavor as well. The mouth feel is a bit thin, and there aren’t many overwhelmingly great notes. The carbonation is light, and the aftertaste is also pretty light
