Growler to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks decent, but dark (pitch black) for a Belgian style ale. Smells sweet, malty, ashy, and doughy. Tastes bitter and busy. Mouthfeel is average. A little too much going on for me.

On draft into a tulip. Thin head that disappeared quickly, dark brown. A bit of a fruity nose. Very thin mouth-feel, especially for the ABV. Hints of fruit and sugar, but, finished a bit dry; like they used a bit too much sugar in the ferment.

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.
