"okay beer. Poured a dark red/brown color with a head that left and didn’t leave much lacing, nice fingers though. Aroma was of dark fruits and bitter/alochol. Flavor was much the same with a hint of sweetness, okay beer, nothing i would search out. "

On draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: One of the classics that I’ve had before, but not on RB. Dark, dark red. The head is thin but quite gluey. Little to no aroma but full-up alcohol-laced, cooked sugar flavors that are fully evident but not overwhelming. Bit of currant? Excellent beer.

Tap & Bottle. Deep dark brown forest with slight foamy head islands. Light liqour bailey’s cream aroma. Very pleasant. Slight sweetness, licorice cream coriander flavor. A little fizzy and boozy. Quite palatable and pleasant. One of the better of its kind. Tastes like it comes from a potent belgian ale bean - coffee-lattee note. Lasting cream coriander latte finish.

Very nice. Pours a deep brown with ruby highlights and a thick fluffy head. Aroma is very similar to an Abbey dubbel with fruits, malt and a dash of alcohol in the nose. Flavor is rich and complex with sweet malt at the forefront, hints of brown sugar, molasses, figs. Slight bitterness at the end. Went down very smooth.
