3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at an Ommegang tasting at Half Time, notes misplaced for quite a while. Thought I had rated this, and somehow never put in a rating. Anyhow, pours a deep dark black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is incredible especially given that everything here is coming solely from the grain bill. Rich dark chocolate, cocoa and malt, even some wood and vanilla tones. Medium bodied, rich chocolate with a light malty sweetness, cocoa. Finishes with more roast and cocoa. Would certainly like to drink this again.

On tap at Good Night Irenes in the wood. First time here, pretty impressive tap lineup for the shore. Pours a dark black with light beige head, thick streaks of lacing. Aromas of plum, candy sugar, smooth malts, oats. Taste is belgian yeast, delicious dark pitted fruits, cherrys, wheat, apples. This beer was awesome, one of the best belgian styles I have had from america.

On draft at Coffee District. I’m not to keen on Ommegang beers but I decided to give this one a shot. Yeasty and perhaps a little fruity, but overall somewhat blah, but that’s just me

On tap at cypress street. Smooth roasty malt flavor with a bunch of caramel. Bit of a cocoa texture. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Creaminess and full bodiesouth feel. Touch of spice clove. Nicer for the Cooler months but still very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Deep cola, moderate frothy light beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright yet musty nose, of dark pitted fruit, hearty bread, and general yeastiness.   Similar tongue, smooth albeit a bit bubbley, warming.   Very much bready, but not heavy, the airy aspect keeps it from going there.   Bright dark pitted fruit, and general musty funk.   Despite its smoothness, it washes out pretty quick.   Very minor heat on the exit.   Lingering dark pitted fruit and breadiness.   Enjoyable!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from expensive bomber - This sort of poured like a beautiful imperial stout, it certainly has enough malt for it! If not for the Belgian-type yeast strain, this very well could have ended up an imperial stout; but, there is no mistaking the influence brought on by the yeast. Overall, an excellent and complex ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brownie batter color with a creamy eggshell brew. Just a touch of lacing across the top. Cocoa, Belgian yeast, caramel, toffee, brown sugar and vanilla. Similarly sweet in the flavor...hint of hops. Bit of heartburn brewing...smidge of alcohol noticeable. Good but not mind blowing...don’t think I’d remember this one. Tells you something.
