Tap at Blind Tiger. An interesting beer. As a Belgian strong ale, I was ready for the funky yeast character but the rich, malty sweetness caught me off guard, much like the improvised solos of the eponymous Jazz maestro might. Aroma is heavy and funky yeast, with hints of sweet, dark fruits. The flavor follows the funk initially, then gives way to a rich, malty backbone. A lot of brown sugar by my palette. A truly unique beer I would say.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL caged and corked bottle. Pours a lightly cloudy reddish brown with an average frothy light brown head, somewhat diminishing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, roasted), average hops (perfume, flowers, grass), light yeast (dough) with notes of banana, dates and vanilla. Long duration, heavy sweetness, harsh bitterness and acidity. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, lively carbonation and bitter finish. I suspect that this beer will benefit greatly from sitting in the cellar for a few years.
