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.

Bottle share. Clear amber. Spicy dark fruit aroma. Alcohol and fruit malt taste. Nutty. This is more of an American strong. Where's the "Belgian"?

maxwelldeux (3070) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a fairly cloudy darker brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is pretty complex and interesting... nose is a little sweet with some raisin and fig in there as well as some rock candy; I also get just a hint of some more savory spice (pepper?) upon further sniffs. Taste is sweet with dark fruits in there, and feels a little heavy. Decent brew.

Hazy chestnut colored with a cm of tan head. Aroma is a bit faint, but plummy, with some spices. Taste is the same, but with cocoa notes, and is somewhat reminiscent of a Christmas pudding. $6/22

I really enjoyed this one... Lots of Belgian spice and sugar with deeper flavors and maltiness. As it warmed the flavors of fig and raisin really showed through, but it also approached cloying sweetness. I'd like to investigate some food pairings with Odin's beer as their slogan suggests... Next stop, Odin Brewery!

bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle fairly new. Pours hazy brown with some diminishing head and lace. Aroma is fairly light fresh toasted barley, almonds, figs. Flavor ads a strong cocoa note while leaning molasses sweet with only very moderate earthy bitterness. Feel is viscous and body is heavy with very little carbonation. Itís pretty innocuous and nice though too heavily sweet without counterbalance or distraction to be enjoyably quaffable.

Bottle @ Borefts. Aroma is roasty molasses, liquorice, burned caramel. Flavour is big caramel and molasses with some roast and liquorice. Decent.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled: unk Pours dark honey with copper when lit, then thereís a fleeting etched surface of light tan foam. Really light and flat looking for the style. Smells initially like the inside of an empty black olives can, then some sweet malt, a little bit of banana - not a particularly enjoyable nose. Flavor is booze, bitter, sweet malts, some banana, really boozey and chemical. Thin and lowly carbed for the style. This is not really firing on many/any cylinder for the style.

IndianaRed (2186) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2013
On Tap at the new "Yard House" in Meridian, ID Deep dark brown with a huge tan head. Warm soft dark malty aromas and flavors with intersting belgian yeast notes mixed in. A belgian sweet stout? Rich and smooth palatte. Very nice

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.
