Belgians say, “Op uw gezondheid’” when toasting, but you don’t have to speak Flemish to appreciate the bold, complex flavors of fig dipped in dark chocolate, ripe fruit and toffee in this immense Ale. Op uw gezondheid!

Draft pour at Stout, a new bar in Seattle. Very dark amber pour, spice aroma, solid flavors but a little boozy.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color, with small compact head. The aroma is too mild, not much comes through. Good body strength, less than expected though; some caramel flavor, with light residual sweetness, but also a fundamental vegetable character; lightly nutty in the final, oily, with some boozy alcohol, and low bitterness.
Despite the name, this has very little Belgium in it. Rather cloying.

Mahogany in color with off white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, and taste carries a bit of cherry cola, with a caramelized sugar note. Not as rich or complex as i’d like

"A little too aggressive on the flavor (strong bitter and boozy) without the nuances for my taste. Both bitter and very sweet, fight, chocolate. A bit of a mess..."

On draught at pFriem Family Brewers. Opaque nut brown color. Aroma is caramel malt, plum, light yeast. Taste is similar, with some hints of fig and chocolate. A bit light in body, but good taste. Does not seem so high in alcohol content.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
Amber-brown, bubblegum, some light brown sugar malts, sweet, fresh, phenols, not bad but fairly std for the type.

BrewDad (5090) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Dark brown in color, thin tan head. Lots of great malt and Belgian yeast flavors. Love the beer it was super tasty. Great spices and chocolate like flavors.

onceblind (4964) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear brilliant copper under a lasting foamy off white head. Nose has some sweet raisins and apple butter and something caramelly. Flavor is rich and smooth and balanced with some dark stone fruit but it’s light enough to remain biscuity and cerealish with some light caramalt tones and a little guava or something similarly juicy and tropical.

Came in a 12oz pour, fluted stemmed glass. No to very litte head is present, light white stuff barely on the top. Laces well though. Nice deep red color. Easy on the nose. The taste is a big bold red with very present alcohol dominating the flavor profile. Warm to the mouth. Malt and hop present noticeable if you try hard to notice them, they don’t stand out much. Sippin beer for certain, but in its own way, very nice and pleasant to enjoy.
