12 ounce bottle. Hazy dark reddish brown color topped by a thick creamy beige head. Rich yeasty, toasted malt aroma. Hints of nuts, bread and plums. Flavor upfront is burnt caramel, malty with dried fruit undertones. Nice herbal hops offer a balance to the complex fruity malt and yeasty character. Very Belgian-like. Delicious.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with a small off white head. The aroma Is dominated by the yeast funk with some burned brown sugar and light caramel. The taste is like a very light quad. There is a big sweetness with some dark fruits.. Figs, plum. Very nice.

Smoke and candied nuts in the flavor, but not overly sweet. A bit of spice and a bit of warm malts.

From a growler from the brewery. Some good spicy malt that sits well on the back of the tongue. Has some nuttiness to the flavor. Not too much yeast flavor. Warms up your chest as advertised.
Would buy again.

Good mahogony body with offwhite generous head, lots of carbonation, looks appetizing. Smell is strong and solid, yeasty banana and alot of sweet malts, maple syrup and so on, taste is really malty with a good earthy balance. So drinkable, booze peeks through appeallingly. Mouthfeel is thankfully full and crisp
