COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

It tasted more like a sour ale to me, with some funkiness and spiced up with cinamon and chocolate. Very yeasty and lactic, great palate. Finishes a bit too sweet though with some woody overtones.

alteregoo (748) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
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.

Arayaga2 (2080) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2016
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 (4914) - 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 (7350) - 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

Tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen. Pours dark brown with a big slightly offwhite head. Aromas of yeasty, malty, dark fruits, light acidic, spicy, chocolate, citrussy. Taste is tart, vinegary (what?), funky, red berries, malty, dark fruits, spicy, chocolate. Not sure what’s going on here. Not bad though.
