3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lost Abbey. Pours brown-black with thick off white head that leaves plenty of lace. Root beer and licorice on the nose. Root beer!
Thick full-bodied palate. Well balanced sweetness with a spicy undertone. They say there are raisins in there and I can believe it but it is subtle. Awesome Belgian-Style dark farmhouse beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with a huge tan head. Nice aroma I’d malt and raisins. Nice taste and palate. High carbonation gives it quite a bit of acidity

bottle. Aroma of honey, rosemary, dried fruits, caramel. Taste is sweet and spicy upfront, moderate bitter hops in the end. Ideal for sipping, gives you that warm alcohol feeling, also very christmassy. Well balanced, complex and tasty. Excellent.

A true strong Belgian, just not specifically to my taste. Hint of floral on the tongue. Pungent.

Really nice strong, slight bubblegum, great rasin and plum aroma. Flavors matched, somewhat earthy but added to balance. Some warmth and that helped the way this beer presntd itself.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is bready with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is literally that of liquid bread. Thick body, smooth finish with just a touch of something tart under the thick bread flavor. Heavy malt without being too sweet, very well balanced.
