Almost black pour. Small tan head. Not much lacing. Perfumy flowery aroma. Taste is molasses and malt. Carbonic. Some of the flower comes through. Slightly bitter.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Caramel and sour cherries are front-and-center in the nose. Full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and sleepy carbonation. The flavor is a melange of sour cherries and deep roasted malts with a dab of gooey caramel. Finishes tart and fruity. Thanks so much to FlandersNed for shooting this world class beer to south Florida!

Pour is dark mahogany with a thin off white ring. Nose is cherry magic marker and rubbing alcohol. Taste is pretty rough, marker and fusel alcohol, burnt sugars and lots of messy malt sweetness. Medium body and oily, strong carbonation and slick finish.

tectactoe (1645) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Tap: Deep, mahogany brown pour with a creamy khaki collar upon swirling the glass, big-bubbled & lazy. Aroma is full of spiced, peppery, Belgian-style yeast with an underbody of toasted caramel, plums, various slightly tart dark fruits, licorice, & a hint of soy sauce in the finish. Lots of yeast in the flavor as well; light spices, clove, bubblegum, & sweetness in the form of brown sugar coated plums. Big dark fruit-y backside with plenty of light sweetness & a touch of tartness... Grapes, plums, apples, just bordering on the edge of vinous. Pretty nice Belgian dark, though it may be tough to pull off in large quantity.

Dark, almost opaque black color, small beige head. Caramel, cola, licorice in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, caramelly (cola candy!), low bitterness, dryish finish with some licorice. Also candy sugar and grapes. Interesting bockish dessert beer.

On tap at craftsman Ale House. Dark chocolate color. Thin head. Faint aroma of malt. Heavy alcohol taste with hints of roasted malt. Good but heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
