Had at new hope right after the brewery tour. Not a bad beer. Havnít ever been too excited about winter warmers and this one is prob a little better than the others I had. Syrupy with some fruit. Slightly spicy with some yeast sediment.

Rating from 3-28-2010....Pours light to medium brown...small beige head....aroma is sugar and malt...very strong on the sugar...flavor is sugar also mixed with malt and spices....brown sugar and a prune/raisin taste...no complexity to it...yet also not offensive.....as it warms up, I get a little clove/banana action in the mouth

Bottle. Big orange peel and coriander dominating. Drinkable with a Belgian yeast note. Smooth but, semi- high carb. Pretty good but, I wouldn't search for this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

clueo (157) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Very easy drinking for an 8% beer. Much lighter than most Belgian cane beers of similar ABV. Pours a dark amber color but isnít super exciting to look at or smell. Overall, a good fall beer.

Bulk_Carrier (2310) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a dark cloudy brown colored body with no carbonation seen rising and no head (bar pour, no harm no foul to be honest). The smell was a sweet caramel up front with some light raisins and plums in the background. The taste was basically the same adding a bit of cherries in it. The palate was about a medium of sorts and had a decent amount of carbonation to it. No alcohol was felt which helped to make this fairly drinkable. Overall, I would say this was a pretty good Belgian Dark. I would have this again.

jackl (5059) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle @ Castle Jackl. Russet red with a small white head. Big old estery Belgian nose. Loads of banana and autumn fruits. Caramel candies. Spiced brown bread. Toasty tobacco and pumpernickel flavors. Strong caramel, red apple skin. Slight cardboard. The very strong carbonation feels a bit intrusive. Medium body. Overall, not really my thing.

Pours cloudy dark copper. Aromas. As of grapefruit and tangerines. Tastes of caramel, spices, and lingering citrus. Better than expected.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Pours a dark amber with slight frothy tan head and an aroma of caramel and slight hop spice. The finish is a bit weak with a light body and a slight sickly sweet aftertaste. Overall a decent beer.
