3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Gil. Lightly hazed amber pour with a tall khaki head. Sweet bready malt and grapes on the nose. Light banana, some golden raisin, and a lot of pepper spiciness. Taste is fairly sweet and malty. Lots of sugar and bread, as well as a fair amount of dark fruit. Some banana and golden raisin, yeast, pepper, and a hint of citrus.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 750 ml bottle several times. Pours a deep toffee brown with a small tan ring. Big nose of candied dark fruit and booze. This brew will age well for sure.

750ml bottle #296 of 600. Rating #1. Nice black color. Sweet aroma, dark fruits and sugar. Flavor was similar, very flavorful, more dark fruits blended with the Belgian yeast. Very good beer. (2566)
