This deep brown ale was brewed with imported Belgian Pale, Aromatic, Caramel, Special B, and Wheat Malts. Amber Belgian candi sugar was also used to boost the alcohol and add complexity. A special strain of Belgian Abbey yeast gives it a unique flavor profile. It has an immense, complex nose with a predominance of ester from fermentation. It also has a fruity palate, generous body, and a big aftertaste. A nice compliment with the BBQ Pork Chop or the Filet. O.G. = 1.069 s.g.
Originally 8%, 28 IBUs and O.G. 1.072 s.g.

On tap at the brew pub. Served in a sniffer. Dark caramel in color. Aromas of sweet malts and bananas. Flavors of plums and a little nutty. I thought the palate was not as smooth as I’d like. Still it was pretty decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark copper bod wit a yellowish khaki head. The aroma was sweet pancakes along with some strawberries. There was bubblegum character throughout the taste and the nose. The taste was also a little bit of banana and a little leathery. Some funk comes across. Decent.
