This is a high gravity beer that is our Brewmaster Extreme Series we released in 2011. Our dark Belgian ale brewed with rye brings on a massive range of characters. Aromas that are spiced, malty and even slightly intoxicating. Flavors that are on the dry roaty and maybe even a little on the tart side. Low level of bitterness. This one was a pain in the butt to brew so you better enjoy it!

The aroma is malts, caramel, raisin. Pours a dark reddish brown/black with a small head, mostly diminishing. The taste is bitter with lots happening. The body is medium, the texture creamy/slick and a touch thin, the carbonation lively, the finish slight bitter. Overall not bad, not great; don’t get sick where you can’t drink beer in your inventory, so it has to age and not to the beers benefit.

12oz bottle courtesy of pepsiedcan. Thanks a ton, bro. Pours a hazy deep amber with an atrocious head that lasts way too long. Aromas of plastic, Eastern European lager, apples, ripe fruit. Sugary. Taste is WAY, WAY TOO FUCKING SWEET. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS IS SWEETER THAN HONEY BOO BOO’S MOM’S ASS CRACK. THIS IS NOT BEER. THIS IS SUGARY ALCOHOL WATER. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.

Bottled. Poured medium amber with a dusting of off-white head. The aroma was very sweet with raisins, molasses, and Juicy Fruit gum leading.. a little rye and a little alcohol warmth on the back of the nose.. this was weird. The flavor found sharp, peppery alcohol, tart dark fruit skins, and rye throughout.. lots of raisin, molasses, and date sugars at the core.. a thick paste of spices around.. dried out through the finish, leaving peppery rye and plenty of boozage (along with some funk I couldn’t place). Medium-bodied, filling, and very sweet on the palate.. unbalanced and hard to drink.

A nice twist on the Belgian flavor. Family rye beer flavors mixed with a bit of Belgian funk and spice.

Pours pours a dark reddish brown color, looks like motor oil when your pouring it, very high viscosity. Aroma is very grainy, rye I guess, plums and dark fruitiness. Taste is very grainy also, lots of rye, and very very malty, some roastyness, lots of caramel maltyness. Very thick stuff, almost syrupy. Really pretty good for how unusual it is int he texture department.

355mL thanks to BeerHawk11. Hazier to muddy deep amber to brown pour with a thicker beige head. Great retention. Nose is a little funky with sharp minerals and mild dark fruits, raisins, mild alcohol, vanilla extract. Interesting. Smells like Chimay yeast. Taste is old, sugary papaya and cantaloupe juice. Almost like thick, juicy, expired mango juice. Interesting to say the least. Sharp, astringent, papery finish doesn’t help. Bland and papery finale. Mild green leafy vegetal character is not helping. Tangy, metallic finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks GT2! Dark brown pour with a thin white head. Dark fruit, candy sugar, and hints of diaper lead to moderately rotten malts, and extreme sweetness. Medium to full body with thin carbonation. Yuck.

Thanks GT2! Mahogany pour. Nose holds big Belgian sweetness, a touch of rye spiciness, and some diaper. Flavor is much of the same; thick sweet Belgian, high gravity, rotten vegetables, not appealing. Might pour the rest of this one out.

Pours a hazy ruddy brown with a 2 finger, fluffy, tan head. The liquid coats the glass nicely and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit, perfumey floral hops, citrus, wet limestone, sweet bread spice and dark caramel. Flavor is caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, husky grain, spicy, citrus and floral hops, earthy must, sweet bread spice, leather and a little roast. Lighter, fruity, berry-like notes and some booziness, come out in the aroma and taste as it warms. Palate is weird, very weird. Basically the viscosity and consistency of blood. Super thick, creamy, slick and slightly dry, lightly carbonated. Very strange beer. Looks, smells and tastes good, but the feel is a little tough to wrap my head around, though not necessarily all bad.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Dark plum reddish brown color not much head.Palate is unbelievable, aroma is a bit yeasty with a mild dark fruit malt. Kinda sweet and mildly fruity nothing extraordinary.A little chocolate maybe vanilla like.Somewhat bready.Pretty nice malty aroma. Thick head on another bottle i tried, Palate is uncanny,smooth slick sweet slippery . Pretty unique kind of palate its like layers of cream and slickness,oily i guess.leaving a roasty nutty carmelly somewhat chocolatly taste with a nice noticable bitteness pretty nice.Bit of tartness in the finish with a lasting lingering mildtartness kind of cleaning up the sweetness.Nice dessert like sipping beer.The middle candy like taste is really nice.Its not super belgiany either but pretty malty. A litle bit of off yeast old kind of taste though The finish is very creamy chewy thick a touch of roast and slight saltiness, with a mild bittering very mildly herbal/citrus fits well.
