thanks thedm! .. pours a deep brown .. good foam .. . muddled yeast and off fruit .. . not enjoyable .. . . who could tell? for all I knew I could be stumbling into some kind of helpless preconfusional state characterized by the fear on the part of the sufferer that he may be stumbling into some kind of helpless preconfusional state. that’s the trouble with losing your mind; by the time it’s gone, it’s too late to get it back.

Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a golden brown with thin off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of dark fruity esters, caramel and toffee, and some light belgian yeast. Taste follows with a slight metallic aftertaste. Decent, but I want something more from a belgian strong than what I already expected.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy medium sized brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation transparent dark ruby red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of brown malt caramel and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
