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.

jstraw (1920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Dark brown with good, foamy, tan head / Toasty nose of roast barley, weed, pine, and chocolate / Medium body, a touch thin, malty with some chew, some sweetness but mostly dry with lots of bitterness / Astringent flavors of dark roast coffee and grass, with notes of lemon / Not bad, but ultimately awkward. No Belgian character.

Growler shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma had roasted malts, chocolate, Belgian candi sugar, and some dark fruits. The flavor had the same; roasted malts bordering on ashy, chocolate, dark fruits and Belgian candi sugar. There is a decent amount of sweetness throughout and a slight bitterness at the finish.
