3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a dark red brown with large, lasting head. Doughy scent at first, sweet, malty like a caramel, with a lighter hop smell. The flavor is sweet, bit of wood, and what came off as date or raisin. The yeast is also present of course. Not bad overall. Sweet finish with a sweet dried fruit flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Dark orange pour with a thick pillowy tan head. Aroma of fruit and yeast. Taste was a beautiful (dare I say) medely? of dark fruit and yeasty malt kick. Nice thick mouthfeel that coats your throat. Almost tastes creamy. Spices and sugar in the aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
on tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philly. not a fan I have to say. I think becuase the flavors are too bold, confrontational and overwhelming. the light straw-yellow, well-carbonated body complete with bubbly white head is total misleading from the very very SPICY flavors that consists of strong, solid hops, vegetables and dirt. I couldn’t come close to drinking a pint so my description will stop there. it was like drinking liquid pepper. good luck with this one.

Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. Very cool bottle. Murky, dark amber color with a foamy, off-white head. Powerful, sweet, malty aroma. Full bodied, lively palate with a lengthy finish. Sugary sweet flavor that sticks to the back of your tongue. Good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy, particulate-filled deep amber with a very thin, mostly diminishing off-white head. Smells of rich caramel, grapes, faint hops, and dark pitted fruits. The taste is of brown sugar, caramel, some chocolate, sugar, citusy hops and booze. This a very full-bodied that lingers in the mouth for minutes after a sip. It’s a little in the sweet side and doesn’t hide the booze as well as other strong belgians.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Creamy off-white head. Hazy dark red brown body. Aroma of caramel and brown sugar which is definately tasteable in the flavor which is actually relatively sweet. Alchol though very well hidden by the sweetness of the beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahagony-colored. Mild, sweet aroma. Lasting beige head with lacing. Several flavors on the tongue all at once, along with bubbling carbonation. Sweet carmel and toffee, a little spicy hoppiness, slightly buttery, some earthiness. Noticable alcohol aspect blends very well with these flavors. Really makes your mouth come alive!

White stubby bottle, poured a clear dark with ruby high lights, a off-white head appeared,
hop floral aroma, roasted malt and dark malt fragrances, faint brown sugar and fruit on the nose, a nice dark malt flavor with some dark fruit berry sweetness in the mouth, a nice hop bite to go along with it, bubbly on the tongue, alcohol warmth in the throat, some licorice taste, dry on the palate, the sweetness is balanced well in this brew, good mouth feel, as it warms the alcohol wakes up and the sweetness grows some.
