Sweet alcohol taste, with some spices. Attractive cloudy black color, with impressively tall head with fine bubbles. Very modest aroma.

On tap at the brewpub. Rich malty complex and fruity. Medium body. Good amount of spice. Was worried this would be a weak IPA masquerading as a Belgian when the called it a "Belgian Hybrid " but was pleasantly surprised.

flatmatt (1305) - Northville, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2015
On tap at Seva Detroit. Deep brown pour with a white head. Raisin aroma that’s slightly boozy. Flavor also of raisin, with some toasty malt mixed in there, definitely with a boozy feel to it. Not bad.

Dark brown pour. Booze, brown sugar, raisins, cherry in the nose. The Taste is a bit more subdued and showcases the yeast. Overall, a cool beer.

Petkus331 (372) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2014
An aroma of charred malt, raisins, dark chocolate. Appears dark brown, almost black and opaque, thin white head and minor lacing. A taste of sweet brown sugar up front followed by bitter dark chocolate and charred toast; the alcohol has a slight warming burn in this. Palate is fizzy and thick, nice. Overal, very nice.

Tap. Dark brown-black. Lingering, small layer of head. Boozey, bourbon-esque nose. Tastes strongly of booze, raisin, some fig.

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

tap. very deep brown with small head. sweet and malty with substantial hop bitterness. a little hot. i can’t decide if this works or if it’s a flavor mess.

CpyNPrnT (518) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Torn on this. It is a hybrid of a belgian strong ale. Lots of malt but a sour aftertaste. A good beer, but definitely different.

paintedmaple (591) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at the Laundry, Fenton,MI...pours brownish black and the 1st sip is spicy-sweet without being cloying. Has a depth of flavor grounded in malty chocolate with dry fruit. Surprisingly drinkable for a big chocolaty Belgian, this beer will instill the deadly sin of Envy in all monks that drink it.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a very dark coffee brown, with medium head. Aromas of caramel, coffee, toffee. Chocolaty, malty flavor. Nice blend of sweetness and bitterness.
