Pours a dark caramel reddish color with a white head. Aroma is very caramel and sweet. Flavor is very rich with a very Belgian yeast finish. Overall not bad probably wonít drink another one because of the style.

Malty with some nice Belgian yeast flavors. Dark and some slight hop bitterness, but a bit too malty and thick to have much at all. Good beer, but would not want many of them.

Has a faint spice aroma, taste is a caramel malt with some Belgian spice. Had a bit of an poor aftertaste it seemed to me.

Bottle. Dark brown with a 1 finger off white head that dissipates quickly. Tiny bubbles everywhere for the first few minutes but it settles quickly. Aroma had a weird root beer like note out of the bottle but it doesn't last long. Aroma settles into lots of apple and floral yeast. Taste starts there ands some roasty malt and spices. Light caramel notes throughout. Slick syrupy palate and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

1/6/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens. Hazy amber pour with a small khaki head. Belgian yeast, light esters, and pennies on the aroma. Fruitier flavor, banana coming through, some caramel, creamy, pennies. Meh.

12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a dirty brownish amber color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of toasted amber malts, Belgian yeast, bubblegum, banana, and nail polish remover. Taste of toasted malt, brown bread, Belgian yeast, sour rotted bananas, and clove. Meh

The dark malt flavor is delicious. This is a seasonal favorite that should not be missed.

12oz bottle from ABC Beer Co poured into tulip. Had it on rooftop yesterday with Tommy, Erica, Anthony F. Pours darker than expected, a deep rust. Head is creamy and minimal. Nose is a little lacking - small aromas of malt/Belgian yeast. Flavor isnít packed with Belgian yeast which is good to me. Easy drinker with earthy hop notes, moderate Belgian yeast and a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Didnít love it but could drink again.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark orange/red (auburn? need to learn my technical colors!) with a boozy head. Aromas of fruity hops, coriander, slight bubblegum, light caramel and slight toffee. The Belgian side comes through more strongly than the amber side. Flavors of caramel, slight smoke, light toffee, and light fruity/grassy hops behind. Leaves a light smoky aftertaste. Lightly bitter and sweet. Wow I just didnít expect the flavors judging from the aromas! You fooled me Ithaca you fooled me! Or maybe, Iím the fool....
