A truly full-bodied beer. Fe-10 is rich, malty and very complex. Dark in color, this beer uses Belgian Abbey yeast, dark candi sugar and a huge assortment of specialty malts, providing layers of complex fruity aromas and flavors, with a warming alcohol finish.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2011 Bottle enjoyed at the Wilmington location. Dark brown pour, nice beige head. Huge aroma of fruit and alcohol. The flavor...this could have passed for an authentic Belgian....very reminiscent of Chimay Blue, which isn’t a bad thing. Lots of dark fruit, mild spice. Rich and sweet, but not cloying in the least. Nice beer. RERATE 03/2011 - On tap at West Chester location. This has developed a rather noticeable smokey aspect along with rich brown sugar notes. Warming and enjoyable. No change to numerics.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Major gusher, but not sour. Very dark brown with a lasting foam. Nose is very nice, with brandy soaked dark fruits and Belgian yeast. Flavor is very dynamic, full, layered from start to finish, complex and it finishes well. Notes of plum, banana, caramel, brown sugar and burnt toffee. Well balanced, with a tremendous yeast character. Nice mouth feel. A delicious treat.

Pours a hazy maroon, brown with a big fluffy off tan head. Smells of some dark malts and fruits. A little smoke in there too I picked up. Interesting. Taste is very sweet, almost a little tart. Just a touch of some smoky maltiness. Nice dark fruits, alost funked out fruits. Really syrupy, but fairly easy drinking. Definitely get some alcohol in the taste, especially in the finish. Get a little heat there. Good brew.

North wales. Dark reddish brown color with light head. Strong roasted sweet malts and dark fruit aroma. Big bite in it - can definately taste the alcohol. Sweet cherry, chocolate, and some medicine taste. Overall not too bad, but I expected better.

Corked 750 ml bottle; thanks Bob!! Dark brown with fizzy off-white head; killer nose of spicy yeast, brown sugar and dank fruits; first sip is kind of harsh with a big spicy kick; sweet sugars and fruit with bone dry finish; interesting and lovely nose, just not that smooth overall

Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa powder, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, coffee, candi sugar, faint apple and pear, maybe some dark fruits, but mostly candi sugar as far as the non-malty notes go. Flavor a wonderful concoction of all the chocolaty notes and with a coffee twist on a bed of doughy, earthy Belgian yeast and very rich malty notes, especially with all the competing candi sugar. Finishes with a great combination of earthiness, light fruits, and above all gorgeous roasted chocolate. Simply a joy to drink, that’s all I need to know about the rich palate. Masterfully crafted, great beer, so much chocolate and roast that it makes many of the so-called Belgian Stouts and Belgian Chocolate Stouts look silly. Best of all worlds right here.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2009 Bottle, pours a dark color with a monster head. Smells chocolatey and fruity. Taste is very complex...Chocolate. fruity, malty, smoke, eastery and alcohol. It is a good beer but the only negative I have on it is its carbonation. A little to much for my liking. But overall a solid beer that I would get again. UPDATE****On tap at Newarak Local... Nice aroma of chocolate and malt. Taste is a nice sipping beer, lots of chocolate and malts, dark fruits and some other spices... Overall nice beer, much better on draft

Murky brown with a snappy tan head. Aroma was cherry, tobacco, caramel, and candi sugar. Flavor was more caramel, chocolate, coke (classic) and tootsie rolls. Strong and rich finish.
