Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 1 pint 9oz bottle. Pours a dark, reddish-brown murky body with an off-white substiantial head that has lasting power. Leaves beautiful lacing on the glass for an extended time. Smells of bread dough, alcohol and very sweet malts. The taste starts with a nice fruity zing (mostly bananas) with a large presence of general sugary sweetness. Then the strong alcohol taste hits, and lasts awhile. It tastes better with each passing sip. It’s fairly bubbly, yet suprisingly silky smooth and only slightly puckering to the palate. A great beer, and it’s only real drawback is the price.

Cola brown with an off white head. Dark fruit aromas. Dark fruit in the taste, some spice.

One of my favorite dubbels. Pours with a nice thick head and tastes great. Ages nicely too.

This is an interesting artisnal ale that really has a lot of depth to it. There are notes of vanilla, pepper, corriander and a sweet musty flavor from the yeast. It masks its alcohol content really well and provides a nice finish after swallowing. Should be drunk with a large mouthed glass to really experience the aroma and lace.

Pous dark brown, with a bit of haziness, with a large off white head. Aroma is spicy, bit of malty caramel, but floral. Flavor is caramel, but of bitterness, sugar. Finish is not that long but mouthfeel is nice. Very interesting, as it still tastes like a belgian, but not really in a belgian style.

Pours dark brown and cloudy with a lingering head. A malty roast aroma. Tastes of caramel with brown sugar sweetness, light spices. Goes down really smooth.
