Belgian Strong Dark Ale with Rye. Belgian beers have a long history, so why not screw it up with some American Rye Malt? This strong dark beer boast heavy raisin notes from the Special B malts as well as a large fruity ester character form the yeast with undertones of spicy rye.

I don’t know how, but I have notes on this from a self-labeled bottle at Dark Lord Day 2011, before the place even opened. I suspect someone from NoDa was there and brought this for market research. Either way, I’m not slamming it, so count it as a tick. Brownish color in my tiny glass. Actually some spicy rye in the nose. Pretty good smell and color. Really comes a cross as a rye beer without a lot of hops or other stuff.
