A special Belgian amber ale with a robust complexity of flavors. Fruit flavors like plum and cherry which are imparted from a special Belgian yeast mix, with a wide range of malt flavors.

Dogbrick (11495) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2010
On draught at the brewpub (as "Father Damien"), served in a snifter. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruddy highlights. Medium thin light beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Rich malty aroma with some dark fruit notes. Medium to full body with a malty character and flavors of dark fruit, molasses and yeast. The finish is malty with a lingering yeast and caramel aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On tap at Maui brewing; amber color with aroma of plum and cherry. The taste was quite sweet, strong berry notes with the noticeable alcohol finish. Overall, OK beer but compared to true Belgium beers, it does not compete

Labeled "Father Damien’s..." at O’Brien’s. Hazy copper brown with no head. High sweet nose with a light hint of vinegar. Taste big thick and strong. More crafty, much better, than I expected.

Draft at Stone Bistro. Dark reddish amber pour, off-white head. Dark fruits, raisins, toffee, sweet malt, light spice, and Belgian yeast. Fairly nice beer, I wouldn’t seek it out to hard though.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Sample at Maui Brewing in Lahaina. Pours a thick brown with a thin beige head. Aroma has some dusty quality, aged fruit, mildly roasted with some spice. Flavour of candied sugar, raisins, dates, some spice. Wow! This is impressive and, again, may have gotten extra points for being such an unexpected treat in hot and humid Maui. Worth finding.
