3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In bottle. Muddy toffee color, I can’t tell if that’s yeast or bubbles lingering mid-glass. Sweet fruity malt flavor. Tastes like toffee and chocolate and dried fruit. Reminds me of a German fruit chocolate bar in flavor. Yummy.

Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with some nice lacing. Nose is yeasty, some fruity esters, a dry grainy maltiness and a bit musty. In flavor some caramel, fruity, nice yeastiness, a touch of acidity. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation, finishes very dry with a tiny hint of alcohol as it fully warms up. Very nice.

Draft at Redlight. This is pretty kick ass! Pours a nice amber w/ a white head. Lots of caramel malts, spices, dark sweetness and a boatload of good ol Belgian funk, but not overpowering. A bit earthy.
