3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a solid beer. Everything on this beer is subtle. Very subtle. It’s got a strong fruity aroma and flavor with some lingering alcohol resin that lingers with you. Head goes away very quickly and the alcohol does its magic. Not a typical yeasty belgian but thats why I like it. No dealing with fermented bottle conditioned floaters. Pour this with the largest head you can get and drink the S*&T out of it. It’s great.

This beer tastes like lake water. I was expecting a hell of a lot more from North Coast. The Silver Jubilee was fantastic, this is just baloney.

Given as gift (was purchased in CT). Thick brown head, remnants last to the bottom. Oaky and malty nose. Thick, concentrated malty initial flavor with oaky finish with slight hint of sweets. Very enjoyable for the style.

Pours a cloudy ruby-brown with a small tan head. Aromas of caramel malt, brown sugar, alcohol, dark fruit and spices. Tastes of caramel malt, dark fruit, alcohol and a hint of smoke and spices. Full bodied.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
LOOK: dark red/orange with yellowish tan head
NOSE: poppy seed bread, malt, fruity with banana, banana bread, peach, apple, grape jelly, salty dried beef, black pepper, smells like the deli section at Whole Foods
TASTE: definitely some breadiness, banana bread, lots of stuff like everything in the nose, and that's not bad!
OVERALL: very complex, great brew!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, dark toasty brown appearance, head didnt linger long but lacing was nice. For a american knock off of a belgian style the "spice is right".
Of course the belgians do it better but it was one of the better american attempts I have had. The flavor has a hint of molasses and a nice nut characteristic kinda almond like, also slight caramel presence. Very malty but pleasant. Mouthfeel is full and rich. Over all I have to say its a very good attempt at a belgian style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Poured very dark amber with a smallish light brown head and almost no lacing. Nose was mainly raisins and light spice, then a smokey-fruit and syrupy body with a caramel-alcohol finish. A fine beer but feels incomplete, as if not quite the sum of its parts.
