Hopmelater (2) - California, USA - APR 5, 2014 does not count
Raisins, nice balance, great finish and aroma. Good sipping beer. The rosemary is faint, but preset. Hint of honey, just enough-seems like a late add. Nice with good Cuban cigar.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Deep brown nearly black thick pour with inch or so of oatmeal head. Nose of crisp brett, strong sour apple, and berries and figs. Lively carbonation, thick oily mouthfeel, crisp tingly finish that isn’t very dry. Taste is smokey, leathery, dark fruits, raisin, carmel/molasses, and figs are present, nice round robust sour mixed in. Amazing beer.

Strong belgian with a dark caramel pour. Lots of honey and caramel with a hint of spice on the front end. Defintely boozy on the back end but solid overall.

2014.03.15 - Lost Abbey 10 Commandments - 750 ml bottle in motel clear plastic cup. Bottle seems to have a best before date but I’ll be damned if I can make it out. Aroma: first impression: dark fruit, Belgian. raisin, caramel. 8/10 Appearance: Pours deep chestnut brown. Little if any red tones. Mostly opaque but a bit of light makes it through. A lot of carbonation, fully half the cup on each pour, and visible vigorous bubbles. Creamy caramel white head. 5/5 Taste: medium sweetness, raisins, honey is easy to miss but stands out a bit when you think about it. Nice. 8/10. Palate: medium body, sticky, lively, long finish. 3/5 Overall: right up my alley. Belgian, honey, raisins? That’s got me written all over it. Not AMAZING but darn good. Too bad I can’t get these back East without shipping. Later note: there’s a bit of a licorice taste in there as it warms up. Similar to Gouden Carolus Noel. 17/20

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2014
On tap, pours a hazy brown color with a thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, dark malt, dark fruit and spices. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a boozy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is heavy and chewy with good carbonation. Overall pretty good for a Belgian style strong dark ale. A lot of flavors which makes it interesting. Not over the top which is nice.
