This is a nice and malty beer. Aroma is full of malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and a Belgian yeast smell. Now what I loved about this beer when it came to taste is the amount of sweetness it gave off. It wasn’t to sweet but it was sweet enough. The sweetness lasts from start to finish and is mixed in with a small bit of tartness, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. It’s just wonderful and I finished my glass wanting more.

Bottle: Poured a clear black color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar with light dry fruit notes is quite sublime. Taste is also a great mix of candi sugars with some dried fruits and a solid Belgian malt backbone. Body is full enough for style with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Some spices can also bed detected. Very solid offering and this is a beer I could have more regularly.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours ruby black with a thin head. Fruity, chocolaty aromas--stone fruits and dark chocolate, raisin and caramel. Flavors are dark fruits up front, then chocolate, coffee, black pepper; raisin and bready notes in the finish. Noticeable alcohol warmth. Wow. This is really good! Peppery mouthfeel with a light, dry finish. This is a definite keeper.
