COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hints of rum, dates and figs compliment the fruity esters in this strong Belgian style ale. Locally made dark candi syrup helps keep the body surprisingly light in this big 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"?

j12601 (9550) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep tawny amber with a thin tan head. Big sweet malt on the nose, but itís nearly blown away by the alcohol and warm cherries. Big and sticky. Medium bodied, sticky malt, warming alcohol, cherries, toast, a bit of yeast. Big warming alcohol into the finish, warm and sticky again, more cherry notes. The moment they stick this in a barrel with some cherries, someone is going to geek out about it. That someone is probably not me, since Iím not about that life, but someone is, and theyíll love it. This is big, unapologetic, and tasty.

22 oz bottle poured. Pours a reddish brown with a ton of foam head. Candy sweet caramel malt with a bit of maple. Soft cherry, plum and other dark fruit flavors throughout. This was a little rough at first for me, but it grew on me a ton as it went. Bit of an earthy flavor and dusty finish. Very unique. Not bad.

Ernest (7213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), with notes of gum, orange peel, menthol, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. A rather harsh, crude, medicinal rendition.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Dark copper colored beer with some off-white foam. Sugary caramel and dried fruits all the way through. A hint of alcohol, particularly on the tongue. Some plum, raisin, and fig. Maybe a hint of dried, sweetened pineapple. Slight phenolic spice quality, too. A little too high boost for me.

Bottle from my brother. Thanks, Bill! Haxy, murky clear dark copper pour, small soapy head. Aroma of pit fruit and a bit of brown sugar. Taste comes on strong, biting, sweet. Plenty of warmth at the back, but finishes weak. Dry, sweet, and a bit sharp.

It starts out pretty good but itís not as good as the other strong Belgian beers we just had. Not bad but not amazing.

Bottle. Aroma of cola. Nice appearance. An interesting variety of flavors. Strong and a little boozy. Not really sure how to describe it. Not bad.

On tap at The Collective in Woodinville, WA. Light off-tan head - good lacing for style. Solid caramel & fruity notes. Good mouthfeel - some heat, but doesnít drink like 9%. Great domestic example of the style - will drink again.
