COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgium-style ale brewed with the changing seasons in mind. Firm toasty and sweet coffee-like malt flavors are underpinned by a subtle vanilla oakiness. Peppery spice adds character to this beer’s slightly dry and warming finish. 35 SRM 24 IBU 15.5 Plato

Stolen from Minnie and Mickey. Kids shouldn’t be seeing them drink it anyway. That just gives the wrong message. The caramel malt does go nicely on a chilly, rainy day, and the alcohol burn at the end isn’t that strong and gives hope that the 10th ride on "Its a Small World" will pass eventually.

Sweet nutty aroma. Pours clear and a very nice red/ruby color. Nice sweet flavor with a long fruity finish.

yackery (156) - California, USA - JAN 31, 2012
12oz bottle. Head is off-white and mostly dissolves rapidly though what remains persists as a slick on top with a ring on the side. Lacing is mostly a frosty covering or gives broken coverage but is thin and fast. Body is a pleasant, clear brown like bronze. Overall it’s an appealing appearance. Aroma is a little hoppy and a little charry a little sweet funky banana. So it’s kind of like a well-done banana nut bread. Flavor carries the aroma well revealing more Belgian abbey trippel fruity notes. It is very mildly salty / sweet so mild that there is no finish. Body is light / medium with a thin, slightly oily feel. Overall, this is a good beer with thoughtful craftsmanship.

Pours brown with medium tan head. Aromas of nutty caramel, spice, dark fruits, plum, and typical begin phenols. Taste is much of the same with a lingering phenolic bite. Finish is sweet.

DConn007 (22) - - FEB 24, 2011
Pours a dark cherry chocolate color with a thick head. Light and very subtle coffee aroma. Initial fruit on the front with a strong malty finish. Also, a faint hint of an oak arrives after the original settlement.

cballatore (15) - Phoenix, Alabama, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Pours semi-clear and cola-like with a minimal head and carbonation. Feels light in body but full in flavor. I taste coffee and spices coming together smoothly in a thin to average texture. It finished crisp and short. Pretty tasty (above average) but not worth seeking out.

Served on Tap, High Dive Bar Aroma- malty, coffee notes, hints of vanilla. Appearance- mahogany brown color. thick off white head that lingered. Taste- firm toasted malt flavors. peppery quality from the belgian yeast. hints of vanilla, figs, raisins. coffee too. Palate-medium body, with an almost creamy quality to it. average carbonation. fruity, clove quality to the warming, dry finish. Overall, a pleasant beer for the winter. nice balance and flavor hints makes it good for a few rounds.
