COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savor it now or let rest - Equinox is a delight served young but robust enough to age well. Hints of rum, dates and figs are complimented by licorice phenolics. Locally made dark candi syrup helps keep a light body in big a beer worthy of rumination.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color, with creamy head. It has a mild aroma of toasted nuts. Smooth mouthfeel, good body strength, strong flavor of dark caramel, with some residual sweetness, and strong bitterness; traces of chocolate and roasted nuts too. They could have extracted more malt flavor; and the yeast gives a dusty impression instead of a classic Belgian spiciness; also, in the final there is some alcohol perception.
Solid but not impressive.

Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 2. Thanks to Colin for this bottle. Hazy amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little soft and airy. Fine carbonation. Light, dry creamy malt. Dried fruits. Finishes dry and soft. Itís standard stuff but quite drinkable.

#10! Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very, very dark amber with a slight beige head. Nose has a bit of everything - spice, dark malt, chocolate, cinnamon, maybe anise. It brings Mexican chocolate to mind. Med body. Flavor is dark malt, with contributions of dark fruit, chocolate, anise and spices. Still think thereís cinnamon. Itís complex and interesting. Finishes on the dry side.
