A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Maakun (3930) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Tap during RBESG16. Hazy reddish light brown. Plastic, sour overripe fruit, glue, bitter leaves and spices. Under medium sour and bitter, light sweet. Medium bodied. 3.2

Update: Tap at Jolly Pumpkin Detroit. Still a bit of weird plastic spices, cinnamon, lemon. It seems better now, but still the spices and sourness don’t really mix.

Palme (4125) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
0.75l bottle shared @ Inbreak. Quite a dark cloudy one this, deep dark orange colored with him a nice lacing small off-white head in the top. Interesting noce. Lots of dandelion and quite a nice sweetness. Hints of cocoa and chocolate combined with the woody arch typical Jolly aroma. Orange vinegar and marmalade. Lots of marmalade. Smells quite nice this. Milder in the taste, but really refreshing. Thin oily in the mouth and it’s really prickling on the allow average carbonation level. Bitterish also, dandelion and quick finish. Quite good. 30.03.2015

Po nalaniu do szkła tworzy się drobna, zwarta piana, obfita i trwała, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa czerwono rubinowa, lekko mętna. Aromat budzi skojarzenia z czerwoną porzeczką, czerwonym winem, ciemnym winogronem, drewnem i rodzynkami. W smaku kwaskowo winne, półwytrawne, sporo nut taninowych, dębowych, beczkowych (ale czystych, bez waniliowych naleciałości) oraz nut czerwonych owoców, może karmelu. Pojawiają się także przyprawowe smaczki, delikatne kandyzowane morele, wiśnie, migdały... Kakao, cynamon i skórka pomarańczy stanowią jakiś marginalny, ledwo wyczuwalny dodatek zapachowo-smakowy. Goryczka niska, pestkowa. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, półpełne z niewyczuwalnym alkoholem.
Niezwykle szlachetny trunek, faktycznie w odbiorze jest to bardziej Sour Brown Ale niż BSA. Ogólnie jestem pod wrażeniem - nieźle pijalne, złożone i kompleksowe piwo, blisko spokrewnione z drogim czerwonym winem.

Even toned rusty brown, with a bit of white head. Aroma is rich and tart, and taste is a tiny bit of a letdown after the aroma, but it's very drinkable. Dan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reddish brown pour with short lived head but lots of lacing. Aroma is fruity belgian. Taste follows nose. Good sweet and sour balance.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours a nice dark orangish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Desverger (8327) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2016
Tap@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen - dark sienna red to brown pour with off white head. Expecting a sweet rather than the sour malty backing (being a Belgian ale) but works for me, some dried fruit, caramel, some spices going, cinnamon prominently, quite tart in the finish, interesting brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
