3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle. Reddish Brown pour with lots of lacing. Medium brown sugar and dark fruit nose. Dark fruit, caramel and brown sugar flavors of plums. A little sweet. It lacks Belgian yeast flavors. Some earthyness. A little burn in the finish. Not bad, would rather be drinking a real Belgian Dark strong.

Tap at Dig. GLowing orange-brown, clear, slightly lacy. Boozy nose--gin? With plums, orange, a bit of metal. Meaty malt flavor, booze, roange, chocolate, booze, caramel, raisin, stewed peaches. Too young, and a bit light, but shows a lot of promise.

On tap at Dig’s Tochigi Beer Week Event. Now this was a luscious beer! Heretic Torment 10% Belgian dark Ale pours a ruby cola pour with a surprisingly herbal nose that gives me oregano & dark malts. The taste is big bready dark malts, some fudge + banana really tasty & smooth. Good stuff.

Bottle thanks to timfoolery shared with duchammer: Poured a mahogany with a whispery off white head. Aroma is sweet dark fruits, shards of chocolate, and light veggie. Strong dark fruit alcohol burn up front, opens your taste buds to sweet caramel and sugars.
